Shoreham Nuclear Power Plant
Caption / Share

You know what this big, distant building in Shoreham was supposed to be. The surrounding community doesn't really have any tall structures, so it's easy to spot the decommissioned Shoreham Nuclear Power Plant from many shoreline vantages. The plant never went into commercial operation. This photo was taken on Aug. 21, 2014.(Credit: Ian J. Stark)
