Over this spring break i'm planning to go to Kings Park Psych Center on Long Island with a few friends of mine to take some photos and explore, i've been to a few abandoned houses around my area but this is the oldest building i'm going to yet and i know there's a lot of mold and asbestos in there and the floors are a bit unstable, do any of you guys have advice on how to stay safe while i'm there and what i should bring with me? Thanks a bunch! ~ Bella

Hey Bella, welcome to OS :) 

 

I moved this post to the general discussion section. 

 

You should get yourself a mask to protect yourself from asbestos if you are worried, I think a P3 mask should do the trick. However, asbestos is only a danger when it has been disturbed and it's particles have entered the atmosphere. With that in mind I would recommend always treading carefully so you don't disturb any asbestos in the first place. 

 

With dodgy floors I think you just need to use common sense, if it looks sunken then be wary. If there are holes where you can see the floor below, probably best to take another route. If it looks dodgy and you want to try it anyway just take it very slow and test every step with your foot first before putting all your weight on it. There is no exact science to it, my foot went through the floor in a house once, luckily just my leg and not the rest of my body. Also wearing boots is advisable as there can be some nasty nails waiting to stick into you. 

 

I hope this helps :D

      lil place in my backyard...
      i've been coming to this spot for over a decade. tragically i've only picked up a camera a few years back. it's nice to be able to visit a location many times in the continuation of self improvement and documenting the destruction of a location. heres a few shots from over the past year:

       
      pano from last summer. i ran here one day as the sun set. i wanted to catch the lighting.
       
       


      belly of the boiler.
       
       


      behind the controls. another scrapper hard at work i see.
       
       


      test shop.
       
       


      looking down
       
       


      the next year would be sad times as kids from all over began to populate this place. i used to be able to walk around for weeks without running into a soul, and now there could be 30 kids here. 
       
       


      in a short period of time shity taggers would desicrate the temple. angering the gods.
       
       


      even the snow doesnt cover that grime.
       
       


      she sure is a beauty tho. i've been to quite a few generating stations and none compare
       
       


      it felt like a train station grande hall. standing in the freezing cold taking a pic of snow falling (or ceiling)
       
       


      so ladylike
       


      everyones favorite hallway which was in a movie for 3 seconds. (relax-its photoshopped.....or is it???)
       


      until next time . . .

      Hello everyone. I was refereed to join the forum from the Facebook group. Im from Ohio, USA and have followed urban exploring for a while. Recently I started getting out and doing it myself. I mainly film videos and post them on youtube but I also take pictures when I'm scouting new areas. I was out the other day scouting an area and took some pictures. I'm looking forward to going back.
