Three Places That Time Forgot

Three Places That Time Forgot

The abysmal depth of human sorrow is the biggest mystery in the universe.

Earlier today, I rode my bike pass some sort of campus (300 acres) next to a well known psychiatric hospital.
There aren't too many signs telling you what this big campus is about.
It looked like a park but the fences are too high.
Later, I found out that this place is a part of Creedmoor State Hospital.

A sister-building of Taipei City Hall?

Like every place else, people do go crazy in New York.
When they do, they probably do it in a big way.
This campus is perhaps the living testament of that.
The entire campus complex looks just too normal from the outside.
What goes on inside will probably exceeds anybody's expectation.
Upon further google search, I found this blog with pictures of the abandoned building-25 in Creedmoor, plus two more.
They are quite amazing.

Those pictures remind me of a summer I spent on an insane asylum when I was a college student. It was a practical training program accompanied with a course I took - "Abnormal Psychology". After the one-month training, I made up my mind that this was the last place I would work with in the future. To date, I still cannot seem to get that awful smell and the breathless air there out of my head.

I am afarid this is an offensive term or there is no such term at all.

The follwing are some expressions for 精神病醫院:

psychiatric hospital

lunatic asylum [old-fashioned]
mental hospital/institution [old-fashioned] [not polite]
mental home [offensive]
funny farm {slang} [offensive]
Knowledge is power -- when shared.
