These are photos taken during a tour of the Greystone property lead by the Roebling Chapter of the Society for Industrial Archaeology. The tour included around some of the main building, various outbuildings, and the former gas plant. Unfortunately, the main building and surrounding buildings have since been torn down (October 2015).
Ellis Island is known as an entry point for immigrants, but what about the rest of the island? Did you even know there was more to the island? Well there is! A 750-bed hospital complex is present on the remainder of the island, where the immigrants were treated for various ailments including a specific area for contagious disease patients.
The complex has been abandoned and is in disrepair, but the National Park Service is now offering “hard hat tours” of certain buildings of the abandoned hospital complex.
The Harlem Valley Psychiatric Center, located on Route 22 in Dover, NY, opened in 1924 to alleviate overcrowding in New York City hospitals. The hospital closed in 1994.
