Is anyone going? I would love to I know it's now November, isn't Letchworth off limits or can people still go on the grounds and into some buildings? Thanks

I grew up in Rockland County. Lived in Garnerville and in Haverstraw. My neighbor and my oldest sister both worked at Letchworth. I tried but quit after about a week. Like someone said it was overcrowded and there were abusive staff members who mistreated some of the more defenseless people. But there were good hard working people as well. I just couldn't take all the suffering of these poor folks. It really was given a beautiful location. Sorry that it's going to be torn down for apartments (if that's true). There is so much history there. Thanks for this site.
