Hallway inside the male wards. 

In 2007, four years after Hudson River State Hospital closed, a lightning strike transformed the male ward wing of this Kirkbride into a raging fire, destroying most of this section. Over the last few years, the New York weather has slowly escalated the damage inside the ward. Despite the decrepit state of the hospital, the main administration building has been registered as a National Landmark due to the High Victorian Gothic architecture.
