Abandoned townhouses in New Jersey

While plenty of developers were ready to build the American Dream during the boom years of the housing market, a recessionary crumble left so-called “ghost towns” across the country, according to curatorial website, with a handful of partially-finished, vacant homes and little else.

The list also includes international listings, in Ireland, China, Spain and beyond. [Oobject via Agent Genius]
