In New York, There Are Enough Abandoned Hospitals With A Dark History To Give You Nightmares
Abandoned hospitals are truly the stuff of nightmares. From the long corridors to the rusted equipment, these sites are laden with paranormal activity. These abandoned hospital and asylum buildings exist across the country; however, there seem to be an unusual amount of them in the state of New York alone. While these places were all created in hopes of treating patients from all sorts of mental and physical illnesses, often times the care was not adequate and the result was fatal. The following sites exist either as completely abandoned buildings or facilities which have diminished significantly over the past century. You won’t soon forget your visit to any of them.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
