Greystone Park Psychiatric Hospital – Trip 1

By dave | September 12, 2012

Much to my chagrin, I have never explored the Kirkbride building at Greystone. Too much drama and too many legal hassles have surrounded it in recent years, and the rewards were far outstripped by the risk. I have been told by those that have been inside that the outbuildings on campus were really the best…

General Ship – Trips 2 – 9

By dave | June 29, 2011

I am definitely a person who enjoys and needs solitude, and General Ship became my refuge for quite some time. When my wife and I weren’t going out to eat or doing something on Friday or Saturday night, I would grab a six pack and head down to General Ship. There, I would basically sit…

General Ship – Trip 1

By dave | June 29, 2011

General Ship & Engine Works was founded by Byron Carl Hedblom in East Boston at the beginning of the Great Depression.

Polaroid Trips 12 – 14

It was a place that delivered great exploring and great pictures right up until the end. The campus has been redeveloped in to a shopping center now, with only…

Horatio Q. DeSantis State School

By dave | November 14, 2010

As I write this in 2020, it has been such an incredibly long time since I have been to this place, or really done any serious exploring, that it feels ridiculous to give this place a fake name. It’s well known. However, it is the subject of a fair amount of hand wringing in the…

Polaroid Trips 7 – 11

By dave | November 4, 2010

At some point, bringing other people to see Polaroid and just going for fun started to become a reason to go, rather than just trying to photograph. On these trips, I visited the main office building. It was probably the most empty and least interesting building on campus. However, the windowed cafeteria sitting right along…
