History:

Built in the late 1800s, this is a very old NYC building. Sadly, it is one that seems doomed to decay and crumble into dust. It currently sits fenced off on an under utilized campus awaiting an uncertain fate.

To paint a more gloomy picture, some of its neighboring buildings from the same era were landmarked with an eye towards preserving their rich history in medical research. No answer for why this particular building was overlooked could be found online.

Its sturdy walls and construction, along with the fact that it is still very much structurally intact after all these years of neglect, is a true testament to those who build it.

Wandering around the campus, looking from building to building, we couldn't help but to be drawn into this fantastic structure. This building was very much like the hundreds of others I've seen over the years, but it had a certain charm to it. Despite all that has been thrown against it, and the absolute neglect of its owners, it's still standing, firm and tall.

Here's to hoping that someone with half a brain finds a use for this place.
