Kings Park State Hospital Sign
The old sign for the state hospital served as a welcome to all who entered the main boulevard. This photo was taken sometime during the 1970s after the hospital's name was changed from the Kings Park State Hospital to its current name.

The sign was at the entrance to "Kings Park Boulevard" at NY State Route 25A. Some of the brickwork is still there last I looked.

That's Building 7 in the background.

By the way, J.A., do you happen to know exactly which building(s) were used for the N.E. Nassau Psychiatric Center?

Ah, right you are... shame on me for not even noticing it. Thank you, J.A. I will fix that right now, thus rendering these two comments completely worthless and confusing to future readers. For that reason alone I will leave them. :)

The commentary for the photo above of the former entrance sign is inaccurate. Although is says that it was taken in 1920, this is not possible. The name on the sign is "Kings Park Psychiatric Center," which did not exist in 1920. The name changed in 1974 from Kings Park State Hospital to Kings Park Psychiatric Center. Therefore, the earliest that this sign could date back to is 1974 and not 1920. Secondly, the additiol name for the "Northeast Nassau Psychiatric Center" also fixes the date to the 1970's as well. NE Nassau was a small hospital within a hospital that served psych patients from this specific catchment area: north east nassau county.
