Have a Seat (2015)


Dormitory at Letchworth Village — Thiells, New York

Within the first 10 years of operation, overcrowding at Letchworth became a problem. In 1921, the population at Letchworth was about 1,200; however by the 1950s, more than 4,000 people were crammed into the already tiny resident dormitories. With the majority of the residents at Letchworth Village were children between the ages of 5 and 16-years-old, these children were basically abandoned at the facility by their parents.
