    I know a few people who have done the overnight at Trans Allegheny. Said it was terrifying and they would do it again.

    What? No Glenn Dale? We used to spend many weekends nights here when I was a teen.

    Old abandoned mental institutions always make for the best episodes of Ghost Adventures. I'm obsessed with that show!

    I love getting spooked but I probably wouldn't last a whole night in that fright fest.

    I'd love to do it, but admit that I would be terrified.

    There's a show that explores fabulously remodeled old places that I think is called "I used to be what?" One place was an old asylum turned into The Village of Grand Traverse Commons!

    When I used to visit my friend at Rutgers back in 1987/88, I would take the back roads. It was usually at night and I would drive past Marlboro State Hospital in NJ (it was still open then and creepy as fuck). It was a two lane country road and I would never look at it because I felt like if I did, I'd see a patient escaping



    Even the sign was creepy:

    ^^ My high school psych class took a trip to Marlboro Psychiatric. We were all put in a room and mingled with patients. It was beyond sad and disturbing. My mother also interviewed there for a secretary job in 1982 or 83. She left and said there was no way she'd ever go back in there.

    NYC has a number of creepy abandoned hospitals and psych centers. Number one favorite is Hart Islan AKA NYC Potter's Field. Hart Island: an Abandoned Hospital Atop a Mass Grave Site in Bronx, NY

    My 2nd favorite is Riverside Hospital on North Brother Island. Home to the infamous Typhoid Mary. Riverside Hospital (North Brother Island): an Abandoned Sanatorium in Bronx, NY

    North Brother Island is fascinating in and of itself. I wish one of those ghost hunting shows would go out there so we could have a visual travelogue of the place.

    Gothamist had a cool piece about it last year: Photos: A Rare, Legal Visit To "Spellbinding" North Brother Island: Gothamist

    A couple of the pics from that article:







    There's also another abandoned island in the area called "Cat Briar Island." Hmm, that one's for me.
