Ghosts of Hospitals Past…

Taken from a cue from the Daily News, I surfed over to the Kingston Lounge Blog.  From the Daily News:

Photographer Ian Ference has captured the beauty of abandoned buildings in and around New York on his blog, The Kingston Lounge. On the site Ference goes by the name Richard Nickel, Jr. — an homage to guerrilla preservationist Richard Nickel, who documented architect Louis Sullivan’s work in Chicago until he died in 1972, when he was crushed by a falling staircase at the abandoned Chicago Stock Exchange.

Many of Ference’s photos are of abandoned hospitals.  His blog does a very good job of giving a general history of his subjects. The photos superb and almost make is seem that if you were there, you would hear the whispers of former inhabitants. It’s interesting, from a Public Health perspective, to see how the architecture has changed in the past 100 years or so.  Feel free to comment below…
