  1. Thank you You're welcome and glad you enjoyed the photos too!
  2. If you make it to the east coast let me know! And yes so glad the gear didn't get ruined because I'd left the bag in the car and was just carrying the camera...and didn't have a coat!
  3. Thanks Andy. Yes so many other things to photograph here and there was a couple I didn't get into due to workers being near the first time. The second time we ran out of time as we had another 5 hour drive to go to another spot. The chapel was one of my favs as well. Glad you liked the photos as well and thanks! There was a staircase similar in style in two other buildings...not spiraled but the woodwork/spindles and newel post were the same
  4. Wow this is an awesome place! Love the photos! Yet another place I'd love to see! I'm always amazed at the places that are left abandoned overseas.
  5. Thank you very much! Glad you enjoyed the post!
  6. Thank you for the compliments on the photos! Yes it's blessing the bus stopped at the staircase here. I believe that building is the next to be rehabbed and maybe turned into a hotel/spa from what I read. And as far as it's closing they moved to a new facility which I believe now is also abandoned as of recent. I'm glad you enjoyed the report and photos as well
  7. Thank you! The graveyard was pretty cool and I didn't get to visit it the first trip. When I did get to it was the end of the day and a big storm was approaching very fast. We had to run for cover as it started to pour and thankfully there was a nearby shed otherwise all our gear and us would've been soaked. Thanks! Yes it definitely was worth the long drive. The chapel I think was about the same age as admin as it is appeared just as old with the woodwork and such. Unfortunately no slab here. It doesn't appear there ever was a morgue here or if it was maybe it was in the other buildings that were converted. Now that I think about it there was no medical looking areas so perhaps that's what happened
  8. I was suppose to visit this location with several friends 7 yrs ago but it got cancelled and I don't recall why. Then shortly after people were getting arrested here and it was off the list by most explorers. A couple years ago photos started popping up from here so I planned a visit. The only bad part was I no longer lived a couple hours away and was now about 7 so it was quite a trip. I managed to get here twice thankfully and these photos are from both trips. It's a very old campus which was started in 1828 for the rich mentally ill and other buildings were built as time progressed. For a time they practiced eugenics here which then became outlawed. The asylum closed in the 70's and was vacant till years later when a few of of the buildings were used as a medium- security prison. It was then sold to a developer who has converted several of the buildings to apartments and continues to do so. This place is most known for it's lovely spiral staircase in the admin building. It seems most come here , shoot that and leave.....but there's so much more here that is photo worthy in that building as well as the others. It's impossible to walk quietly in here as the old wooden floors creak with every step...it was really annoying trying to be stealthy. Also a lot of the floors and walls are leaning so badly that at times it felt like you were in a fun house with the odd angles. However having said that everything is in excellent condition here with only a few minor areas with some water/weather damage. Side note the patient cemetery is also located on the grounds which is in this set.
  9. Will do! My grandfather is from Italy and I've wanted to visit because of that. He hailed from Florence I believe
  10. Oh I see. Yeah looks like us short people would be ok but no one much taller than that! :p. Must have been altered like you mentioned at some point
  11. photo #7 ...doesn't look like there'd be even enough room to stand if the floor was there????
  12. This place is so creepy. I guess I first saw photos from here about the time this was posted. I'd probably not be able to take pics of the animals though :(. I'd be too upset. Nice photos btw.....pretty rare I'd say to find such a place? You'd never see that over here ...it'd be long time trashed
