This Asylum In New Orleans Is Still Standing…And Still Disturbing

Did you ever drive by Henry Clay Ave. and Tchoupitoulas St. and wonder what was beyond the brick walls there? Well, now you know. That was the former site of a federal hospital, which was converted into the Mental Hospital for Adolescents in 1983. It remained in use until 2009. Now there are plans for Children’s Hospital to expand on the site, demolishing some old structures and reusing others. But the building still sits mostly unused at the river bend, making it a creepy-looking abandoned asylum in New Orleans.

What do you think of Children’s Hospital’s plan to renovate and reuse this abandoned asylum in New Orleans? Do you think they will keep the historic character intact? Let us know your thoughts in the comments. We love to hear your feedback!
