a friend of mine lives in utica ny and she noticed they were tearing down one of the back wings of Utica State Hospital, so she called me up so i could get pics before its "renovated" into a courthouse.

panoramic pic of the back:

before:

now:


if you want to see more click here i didnt crop or resize so they are pretty raw.

when i was taking these i got hassled by a cop. he actually asked me "what are you taking pictures of?" 0_o there's nothing else THERE. then he said they dont let people take pics cause you might take a pic of a patient and comprimise their confidentiality.
that might be true of the NEW psychiatric center three blocks OVER. anyways, goodbye beautiful hospital, hello lame ass courthouse :(
