    This is the kids block of this gargantuan site.
    It got to the stage where I couldn't face any more rooms rammed full of surreal toys (note the weird pumpkin stack toy - that was freaky) and sinister decay. It went on for ages and simply had room after room of treats. As the sun was starting to set we went down into the basement via stairway right next to the entry point. There was a huge room full of antique rotting chairs and an old fashion sign marking 'main tunnel' we shone our torch down the way and couldn't see the end. It would take a week to even give a cursory superficial sweep of this place. It just confirmed to me that the USA is an exploring heaven.
    I don't think I will ever need to see an abandoned nursery/school/kids psychi unit ever again as this completely over did that whole thing-complete saturation. I don't think you will either, after scrolling through my pictures!


    As described on my adult wards post-Huge mental hospital in the wilds of new york state.
    Part live, mostly derelict.
    Huge site in which a) I saw only a small segment b) got completely lost several times.
    Not very happy with shots - no tripod - generally a bad idea in the USofA it seems.

    It has the usual dodgy documented history-
    http://www.nytimes.com/1988/07/17/nyregion/rockland-psychiatric-center-faulted-in-a-death.html

    Beware-you are going to need a new mouse after this lot. But there was so much to see. I'm being honest, this is only a smidgen of my photo collection from this place. Ready for the marathon??.......

    Wow, what a find! It looks like quite a sad scene with all the broken toys lying around, but you've captured it really well.

    Gutted I missed this one, I lived 20mins from this last year! Some great photos, kids places always seem more freakier because of the toys I think!

    Yeah, I could kick myself for the numerous trips I have made to NY and not taken the chance to visit all the stuff that is there. Like the UK, a lot of it is now going fast

    That looks like a quality place!

    I don't think there is too much wrong with the shots either.
