SKATEBOARDING AN ABANDONED PSYCH WARD



Written by Jack Blocker

Film maker Sean Colello recently made an edit for Jenkem Mag, my fave site on the internet, featuring a group of skaters tearing about an abandoned psych ward in New York State. The Search For BLDG.40 takes place in a cluster of wards that was apparently thriving pre-WWII, before the war effort stripped it of its skilled medical staff and accelerated its decline.

Of the numerous structures that constitute the original compound, four still function as psychiatric wards. Eerily, the working buildings are still connected to the abandoned edifices by a series of tunnels, once used to transport food and medical supplies during the harsh NY winters. For more behind the scenes details and a great photo-set, head over to Jenkem.

Don't Panic attempt to credit photographers and content owners wherever possible, however due to the sheer size and nature of the internet this is sometimes impractical or impossible. If you see any images on our site which you believe belong to yourself or another and we have incorrectly used it please let us know at panic@dontpaniconline.com and we will respond asap.
