Letchworth Village- Thiells, NY. Established in 1911, Letchworth was once a revolutionary institution for mentally and physically handicapped. Many of the patients were children, often abandoned by their families. At it’s prime, Letchworth once consisted of over 130 buildings. Due to reports of patient neglect and abuse, Letchworth closed down in 1996. Lately I have been fascinated with exploring the ruins of this forgotten institution, and also preserving a memory of what this building has become. Not only is nature overcoming the structures of man, but man is also destroying their own creation. Every time I come to Letchworth, I have the most uneasy feeling that can only be described by those who venture to the basement in search of the morgue. The last photo in the set I believe to be actual blood stained on the floor. I had seen a photo online of a bloody chair above this stain a while back and was utterly creeped out to find it. Please keep the credit on my photo set and check out my Flickr <3
