Laundry, Maintenance and Stores (2014)

Harlem Valley Psychiatric — Wingdale, New York

Across a service road from the steam plant there is another large building which served as the laundry, maintenance and storeroom for the hospital. Compared to the power plant, this diminutive building could almost be overlooked as not even belonging to the hospital at all. Note the warning sign on the door to the extreme right…

As large as this building is, it was dwarfed by the size of the smoke stack. As we leave our visit to the steam plant, we head across the street to the hospital’s laundry and maintenance building tomorrow.

Harlem Valley Hospital Steam Plant — Wingdale, New York

Some windows had been boarded up and others covered with Plexiglass, so I went from areas of complete darkness to spots with quite a bit of light. I am unsure what this pit was but it was filled with water – still actively being pumped out (see the green hose mid-frame right).

Harlem Valley Psychiatric Hospital — Wingdale, New York

Steam was produced from the burning of coal – this plant, located along the commuter rails, had a spur at the rear of the building – allowing for the coal to be easily dumped and moved inside for processing.
