Kings Park Psychiatric Center in Kings Park Long Island was a staple of the Long Island community for over 100 years. From 1885 to 1996, this center has seen thousands of patients and even suffered from overcrowding during its run. At its prime it housed almost 10,000 patients at one time. But the once full asylum has succumb to be a vacant ghost town that harbors teenage graffiti artists and young wanderers. As a kid I would explore these forsaken buildings with my fellow hoodlums, but as I go back, the magic of discovery is somehow lost in exchange for an outside observation.
