Up and Over (2014)

ExtLounge_0209FXLo

Monsour Medical — Jeannette, Pennsylvania

Just beside what I refer to as the “doctors lounge” there was a low roof with a set of box spring leaning up against it…above was a very narrow slit window that was open…so I took the opportunity which was presented to me to go up, over and inside Monsour.

Hosp Only (2014)

Monsour Medical — Jeannette, Pennsylvania

Nothing says quality medical care like a sign painted in freehand on a exterior wall beside the emergency room entrance with the word “hospital” abbreviated. The “profitable” Pain Clinic at Monsour closed  after two Pennsylvania Health Department inspections were conducted and found a large number of violations in regard to patient safety, confidentiality and the control of drugs…

Welcoming You Around Back (2014)

Welcome_0189FltFXcropLo

Monsour Medical — Jeannette, Pennsylvania

As most of you know, I never attempt entry using a frontal assault.  At the rear of the medical center, behind the guard shack, was what looked to be a promising entry point. However when I passed through the torn plywood barrier, I entered the mechanical room – tunred into a shooting gallery by junkies – an area with no access to the center…so it was time to try another approach.

Monsour Medical (2014)

MonsourMedicalLo

 Monsour Medical — Jeannette, Pennsylvania

From its beginnings as a family medical practice in a stone house along Route 30 to a multi-doctor medical complex; the Monsour Medical Associates have seen multiple bankruptcies, State and Federal license revocations, suspicious deaths and the CEO attacking a vendor with a sledge hammer – so it is no wonder why this facility is boarded up and awaiting the wrecker.

Seaside Asylum — Waterford, Connecticut

Dear God in heaven…don’t leave me in here…

Nikon D80 with a lot of post-processing effect (it was very dark in here with the exception of the small spot of light hitting the wall).

A New Life (2014)

Glenwood Power Station — Yonkers, New York

The Glenwood revitalization project is underway and expects to turn the crumbling power station into a hotel and a convention center, with a capacity of 1600 and 3500 people, respectively. Envisioned by the Goren Group, the multiphase, $150 million for-profit project hopes to attract art exhibitions that might otherwise be held in Manhattan.

Glenwood Power Plant (2014)

Hulk_0161Lo

 Glenwood Power Station — Yonkers, New York

For both the Glenwood Plant and Grand Central Terminal, the railroad hired the Minnesota-based architectural firm of Reed & Stem. The Glenwood Power Plant had a capacity of 30,000 kilowatts, which was distributed in alternating current to a series of substations where it was converted to direct current and fed to the trains. This power station is built of red brick, with rows of monumental arched windows, red terracotta trim and corbelled cornices.
