New York Farm Colony - Staten Island, NY
Correction: Thanks to a diligent viewer of the site it has come to my attention that this is actually the New York Farm Colony and not Willowbrook State School.
Hidden away in a wooded area on Staten Island. The Willowbrook State School was an asylum for mentally retarded children from the 1930's to 1987. At its peak, the hospital had over 6000 residents and was rife with scandal. In 1965 Robert Kennedy toured the site and declared the conditions "living in filth and dirt, their clothing in rags, in rooms less comfortable and cheerful than the cages in which we put animals in a zoo".
Abandoned since 1987 the site is in very serious disrepair. The structural integrity of the buildings were questionable at best. Because of that I chose not to venture inside any of them.
