This was made possible using the DJI Mavic Air.
“The current Bayley Seton campus was constructed around the Marine Hospital Service buildings at the site. On October 1, 1831, Staten Island's first hospital, the Seaman's Retreat, was opened here, to serve retired naval and commercial sailors.”
“A creepy vista down one hallway on the first floor. A lone fire extinguisher on the ground, and a pair of doors at the end of the hall with openings that look like eyes.”
“The grounds of BSH house Staten Island’s first hospital, an historic colonnaded structure built in the 1830s to serve ailing retired naval and merchant sailors, appropriately named “the Seamen’s Retreat.”
“The austere, three-story edifice is the only abandoned structure within the active section of Bayley Seton, situated on the northeast corner of the grounds behind the main building.”
“While Staten’s Bayley Seton Hospital is still up and running, eight of the twelve buildings located on the 20-acre Stapleton campus have been abandoned—so it’s hella creepy here.”
“8 of the 12 original buildings have been completely abandoned since the complex opened in the 1830s.”
