Urban Explorer and photographer Will Ellis of the excellent photo blog Abandoned NY recently visited an old Marine Hospital on Staten Island and found it to be in excellent condition, despite being abandoned for decades.
Like many grand, old buildings, the 1837 Infirmary appears to have been shut down from the top down. Dental clinics and early childhood programs lingered into the early 2000s on the lower floors, while the top floor sat unused for decades. Today, the interior is largely empty and plain—drop ceilings and fluorescent lights abound. But the attic retains a much older patina, and a few odd relics that feel fantastically out of step with the modern trappings below.
Ellis’ excellent photobook Abandoned NYC is available for purchase on Amazon and is the #1 new release in its category.
