The Diagnostic Clinic/Surgical Center
Once a center of activity, now inhabited by pigeons.
  
A Solitary Park Bench
A place to rest, no longer needed.
  
Trees Take Over
Trees and vines are overtaking the buildings.
  
A Sad Scene
The barred windows tell their own tale.
  
Uglification in Progress
I think these murals rob this building of its dignity.
  
A Residential Building
This may have been nurses' housing.
  
An Entrance to Nowhere Now
Picture the nurses walking in and out.
  
Around Back
A path goes behind one of the residences.
  
Housing on the Grounds
Housing probably for senior doctors.
  
A White Birch Holds Sway
A magnificent tree casts it's shade.
  
A Secret Life
A pretty flower grows in a secluded spot.
  
Trees Against the Sky
One of the many lovely vistas.
  
An Important Building
This looks like administrative offices to me.
  
A View of the Long Island Sound
Taken from the bluff at the northern edge of the property.
  
A Doctor's House
This must once have been a very pretty home, photographed here in 2005.
  
Same House, Two Years Later
Note the deterioration of the house in only two years.
  
An Open Field
A lovely view of the trees and sky.
  
Nature Takes its Course
This fire escape is rapidly being overtaken.
  
An Eerie Scene
One gets the feeling that there are ghosts watching over the place.
  
Looking Back
A last look at the northern part of the grounds.
  
An Administrative Building
Originally a business office, I wonder if patients were later housed here. Notice the barred windows.
  
Building 93
A formidable place. Can you spot the ghosts in the upper windows?
  
A Closer Look
A closeup of the ghost in the window. Imagine him patrolling the deserted hallways.
  
A Grim View
These barred windows paint a haunting picture.
  
A Forbidding Majesty
One feels the great misery that once dwelt here. I believe these walls weep.
  
A Cheerier Aspect
This autumn view of a pond on the grounds was taken two years ago.
  
Nature's Majesty
Another autumn view of the beauties of the place from 2005.
  
The Long Road Home
So ends this July 2007 visit to a very remarkable place.
