Thank you too Motts for that one! I never heard of it somehow until now. It will renew my enjoyment of your old galleries, as i can imagine what they might have created had they stepped in the many cool places you shot :) 99rooms images were from East Berlin Germany. This might be the developer's website. http://www.rostlaub.com/

Interesting, reminds me of 99rooms.com so many years ago. Thanks for the link.
There is a website that lets you "explore" Overbrook. It is http://www.whiteenamel.com and the pics used are newer than Motts' pics so there is a mild amount of decay shown. Great aerial shot at the beginning and good exterior shots. It's a point and click game and you can use your tab key if you can't find where to click. You'll need to refresh the page at the end of each segment. The backstory: The website was created as ephemera for "The Blair Witch Project" and features footage from a fake 60's documentary about Maryland asylums, Overbrook was staged as the "Maryland State Institute for the Criminally Insane", home of fictional Kyle Brody. (not the character from "Charmed" btw) He was the lone survivor of 8 kidnapped children who were ritualistically murderd by Rustin Parr, believed to have been possessed by the Blair Witch. This led to Kyle being very troubled as an adult, leading to his admission to "MSICI" More on that here: http://www.bluedaniel....archived/rustinparr/

But thanks for the pics anyway Motts I've been curious about this place ever since a paranormal team featured it in one of their episodes.

Allegedly, around a hundred people perished of hypothermia in Overbrook's first decade due to a failed boiler not powering any radiators. But i haven't verified that. _Robert B.

I believe it was just an average bedroom off one of the ward corridors, not at the end of a hallway.

Not sure what's left standing, but it's always been off limits to the public... I'm sure this will change once everything has been cleared away and it becomes a park.

is it legal to visit this place?

It looks to me like either a shared room, or maybe admin space - like cubbies in an office.

There was a morgue at this hospital, but the cops chased us out before we got to it. The stainless panels on the door are probably to protect it when being slammed open by gurneys or laundry carts.
Imagine - painting AROUND the painting - who would do that kind of paint-job?

Wow. Just stumbled across this site, spent hours perusing. Its cool to see an oldish mental hospital in good repair.
What I want to know after looking thru all these pics is how a place like this is supposed to make people "sane". The tiny rooms, no privacy, heavy locked doors, small windows etc. I have no mental illness, but I think if I was put in this place, it'd cause one.
Theres nothing about this place that says "a safe place to gather your grip on consensual reality". Instead it says "we are going to lock you away and control you...for your own good of course..." Yeesh.

Are those blue doors morgue doors? They're a color of blue I've seen in appliances!

Our facility had magnetic locks that staff had to hold to engage. They also had to keep an eye on the person in the room through a window in the door.
