The Abandoned Hospital at Fort Totten

The Abandoned Hospital at Fort Totten

Fort Totten is the most peaceful place in Queens. It was decommissioned as a military base in the 70s, and while there's still some activity there (FDNY and army reserve training, an NYPD squad, and a public rec center), there is still plenty of open, quiet space. On one side of the base is the old Castle- a huge military fortification overlooking the Sound, with a creepy WWII addition jutting off into the woods. At the other end of the base, there's a set of abandoned barracks, and this old infirmary overlooking the water.

Hi Jake,

I've been following your photoblog for about 2 years and don't usually comment, (actually, maybe never commented yet - I'm not sure) but I was really taken with this series of shots. Those empty rooms are so hauntingly sad. I can't imagine how many lives were saved - and lost - within these walls.
