Kings Park Psychiatric Center--New York

Founded in 1885, Kings Park Psychiatric Center is the largest of the many now-abandoned state-funded asylums in New York and New England. I hope to check it out while I'm there. It even has a pool, a gym, a library, a morgue, a theater, and a bowling alley which still has racks of old shoes and trophies long forgotten and lying on the floor. Collapse )

Old-school in Akron. This building is designed to look grand at night - and it truly does. Best known for being the oldest steakhouse in Akron. Cash only and (very) upscale. The neighborhood around the restaurant is in serious decline. It seems the owners don't want to stand out too much.

I've been lurking around here for a while, but last night, I noticed something that I felt worthy of being a first post. I live in an older house, and it has a clawfoot tub, the faucet of which is in need of some TLC, to say the least. In the meantime, I think I'll enjoy the way it's slowly falling apart:
