Long Cay: Albert Ghost-Town

Traveling across the islands of the Bahamas from the prosperous north to the decaying south offers a complete picture of the life within these island communities. Life here has been largely shaped by the basic necessities required for survival—when certain forces, including natural disasters like hurricanes and economic declines based on local resources of salt, lead to the disappearance of once-prosperous towns. One such place is Albert Town, which at one time had up to 4,000 inhabitants. Now, it is home to just a few residents, whom we never saw.
