7. Abandoned Letchworth Village, Former Mental Institution

A little further inland, Letchworth Village was once a model institution for the treatment of the mentally and physically disabled. Set in a bucolic landscape and managed by the Town of Haverstraw, Letchworth Village is now a public park where abandoned buildings sit waiting for the ravages of time. Built in 1911, stone buildings are set amidst rolling hillside along curved streets with vintage-style lampposts, and you can easily sense the utopian idyll that governed the architecture and design of such an institution.
