Nigel Lloyd/Alamy-Flooded Towns of the Catskills, New York Why It’s Eerie: From 1910 to 1928, two dozen farm villages were abandoned and flooded to create six new drinking reservoirs for New York City.

DEVIL'S POOL: Is this the ultimate (and most dangerous) infinity pool in the world? The natural water hole perched on the edge of Victoria Falls (Zambia side) can be swum in, depending on water levels, at certain times of the year with (relative!) safety. A rock barrier and minimal current stops bathers being swept over the falls to a 128 metre drop. Since 1959, there have been 17 victims of the pool, however. And as for standing on the very edge: foolhardy! Not for me! Photos:via Daily…
