"...returning years later truly bald except for a wig of blood, and tears and fingers, to the visible madman doom of the wards of the madtowns of the East,
Pilgrim State’s Rockland’s and Greystone’s foetid halls, bickering with the echoes of the soul, rocking and rolling in the midnight solitude-bench dolmen-realms of love, dream of life a nightmare, bodies turned to stone as heavy as the moon..."
- Allen Ginsberg, Howl

Originally opened on August 17, 1876, the hospital was known as the New Jersey State Lunatic Asylum at Morristown and was later named Greystone Park Psychiatric Hospital. It was closed in 2000 not only because of concerns for the aging buildings, but also due to the recent negative press it was receiving. Specifically, accounts of sexual assault in a hospital elevator, patients committing suicide, patients becoming pregnant, and a twice-convicted rapist escaping did not help Greystone's public image.

    Great quote and interesting facts about the State Hospital. Your photographic characterization to give vision to those words is incredible! Awesome photo!
