Castleton Castle. The Samuel R. Smith Infirmary, the former Staten Island hospital. Staten Island, New York, US

In 1979, the Staten Island Hospital decided to relocate to its current location on 475 Seaview Avenue, the property was sold to a developer with plans for condominiums. The condo development failed and by the early 1990s it was abandoned and tax liens began to accumulate. In 1983 and 1991 there were community efforts to landmark Smith’s Infirmary with no success.

    what a waste of what was a lovely building , i think they called it demolision by neglect. Good work congrats , dont forget the unwanted and abandonned group

  • True! It’s a shame that such property is behind the fence for so many years..
    Thank you Phillip!

    WOW! This is just about as creepy as it gets in this life… wish I had access to a place like this in Brussels… I`d go NUTZ :-)
    Awesome work!!

  • Thank you Bill! It is creepy and scary, especially when you just enter…
    If you ever in NYC, we will be happy to show you the place, although it’s not exactly open to the public :) Evelina mentioned she would go back any day! :))
