Finally moving away from the midwest I headed back east on the long slow train to my friends in upstate New York. Because of a certain police encounter my friend had a couple of months back he is currently unable to get up to any mischief in his home county so he introduced me to a couple of his exploring buddies who would happily explore with me instead

:p St. Mary's Manor is an imposing nine-storey (plus basement level) former hospital turned nursing home which closed in 2004. Since then it has been left at the mercy of the elements and thankfully has escaped large-scale trashing and tagging with a lot of lovely peely paint and decay. The downside is there are a lot of empty rooms, but the building itself is old enough and interesting enough to keep you occupied for a good while. The highlights being the chapel located on the 4th floor and, shrouded in the darkness of the totally boarded up first floor, a totally intact dental suite. Quite why they would choose to leave a valuable piece of kit like that behind is beyond me.

It's also notable for an extremely tight access, one of the smallest holes I have ever had to fit myself through and which also led to the death of my phone which was crushed against a wall coming out as well as a large rip in my hoodie. I wish I had got a shot of the outside to show the scale of the place but the weather was absolutely awful.

I wish the dental suite wasn't in a totally pitch black room which makes getting any photos of it a total pain, but then again I guess if it was on an upper floor it would have been destroyed by now, so swings and roundabouts.

Thanks for looking more here https://www.flickr.com/photos/mookie427/albums/72157659692702695 :p

BIG YES to this. That's what an old, decaying hospital should look like :) Nice set here

Some really nice pics there Mookster! Loving that dental suite, considering it was pitch black you didn't do too bad mate (y) loving the colour in some of he place, makes it look really vibrant against the peelyness. Glad to see your enjoying your trip

Thanks guys, it was a good laugh. Spent the majority of the time there wandering around it on my own because as usual the group was busy chatting and being slow :p
