KPPC: A Journey Through History
|Posted on June 30, 2011 at 9:40 AM|
I have posted photos on this website of almost every building. I am still in the process of adding more. I want this site to have more buildings listed than any other website that exists.
After all of this research I have become somewhat of an expert on the buildings of the hospital. However, even with all the knowledge and documentation I have available to me I am still at a loss regarding a few structures.
Does anyone out there know how I can find out a complete list of buildings built for the KPPC? I also need a list of years when the buildings were each built. I have most of the years down, but I am left guessing with a few that are not listed in any book. I have pretty much exhausted my other resources and no one seems to know what some of the buildings were or if they even existed.
The unknown buildings in question are Buildings 13, 14, 103-110, 148, and 149. I was able to account for every other single building thanks to the help of many people, maps, photos, and documents from the Kings Park Heritage Museum.
If you have any questions about buildings feel free to ask. I will do my best to help. Just don't ask me how to enter the buildings. There is no accurate answer to that question that I can give considering I live in Yonkers and go there about once or twice a month. New openings are always being made, while old ones are being sealed up. Use your eyes and search, but be careful not to get caught.
I can tell you it is illegal to enter the buildings, but I know most of you will not listen anyway. Instead, I will say this to you... please, try to respect the property and the buildings. Don't destroy anything. Don't make loud noises drawing attention to yourselves because that's how idiots get caught. That is also how they know which buildings need to be resealed. You might be the cause of a good entrance being sealed because you couldn't resist being an ass. Don't be that person.
More importantly always wear the proper protection when entering places like the buildings and the tunnels. They are contaminated with lead paint and asbestos and without a mask you will be too. If you don't mind dying of cancer, then have a blast and ignore my warnings. Is the adventure and excitement really worth your life?
Oh, and please no repelling from the rooftops, and then posting it on youtube!!! Morons. You make life harder for everyone else who goes there. Use your little brains for something other than thinking of a place to get high.
Unfortunately, a few buildings are in danger of being demolished as early as of May 2012. Please go to the following link to sign a petition in order to help save these buildings.
