I have always had a soft spot for the abandoned and the forgotten. Among a few of my adventures have included Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia,PA. Eastern State was once the most famous and expensive prison in the world. Today the prison stands in ruin, a world of crumbling cell blocks and empty guard towers.
Another one of my favorites found me at Jackson Sanitarium, " the old castle on the hill", located in Dansville, NY. The building is over 135 years old and has sat empty since 1971, it's history began as a home for the terminally ill and later included a home for the mentally ill.
