This image was shot during blue hour inside the Administration Building at the former Hudson River State Hospital in New York. I really do love this staircase. Sadly, blue hour never lasts as long as I would like, so by the time I took the 3 shots necessary for this pano, it was dark and the blue hue was gone.
I remembered seeing this gorgeous room on my very brief first visit to Greystone Park Psychiatric Hospital many years ago, but I didn't find the time to photograph it. During my trip last Spring, I made it a priority to find it and photograph it.
This room did not contain any built in closets so one could speculate that this room was intended to hold multiple patient beds and house more than one patient.

Administration Building at the former Mare Island Naval Shipyard, constructed in 1870.A
Kirkbride asylums were constructed to be self-sufficient and most campuses contained a dairy and agricultural farm, a post office, recreational facilities, water utilities and a power plant. Greystone Park Psychiatic Hospital was no exception.
This power station generated power for the entire campus, which included the main Kirbride building, which was designed to house 450 patients, nurses quarters and all other ancillary buildings.
