Greystone Park Psychiatric Hospital
Sunset at Greystone Park during its last winter. Demolition began in April of 2015. Opening in 1876, this was the largest Kirkbride plan asylum ever constructed, it was also the largest singe-foundation building in the country until the Pentagon was built. It's demolition is a point of much controversy in New Jersey.
