Skating New York’s Abandoned Psych Ward

Sean Colello has created this eerie but rad little clip in an abandoned New York State psych ward. The skater is Rob Miceli and there’s an awesome set of photos by Colello to go with it, which you can see over here.

In the description, Colello says, “The campus is a pretty huge area made up of about 10 abandoned buildings and 4 buildings that are still functioning. Psych patients roam around the complex and so do cops. Most of the abandoned buildings are pretty boarded up so you can’t get in, but the thing that’s so sick is all the buildings are connected with underground tunnels, so if you can find a way into one, you can access them all. The nurses used these tunnels to deliver food and supplies to the patients all over the center. It’s surprisingly untouched.

You can see it’s damn sketchy – I can’t say I’d like to be roaming some of those tunnels. Jenkem supported the clip, it’s we’ll worth checking out.
