Kings Park Psychiatric Center
Kings Park is the abandoned mental hospital you see when you close your eyes and try to picture such a thing -- it’s kind of the platonic ideal of a terrifying insane asylum. Closed in 1996, the whole thing was supposed to have been demolished a few years ago, but only a few buildings have actually been torn down. Is that the work of slow-as-hell government contracting, or forces from beyond the grave? You be the judge. (It’s the former, guys.)
Town of Tahawus
It’s a whole ghost town, like in old Westerns, but in the Adirondacks! Only a handful of the original turn-of-the-century coal miners’ homes remain, but if you wander into the woods, you’re sure to see them/get chased by a ghost miner with a pickaxe.
