Shoreham was a rallying point for anti-nuke protestors for decades. It was shut down for good in 1994.

Abandoned Nuclear Power Plant

Shoreham Nuclear Power station never officially opened for full power and was closed due to public protests. Still visible across creek from Wading River. Can still see the containment vessel and outbuildings, although core was removed many years ago.
