Well, this is surely Bloomfield, NJ's awesomest abandonment.
I suspect that, once explorers find out about your little secret in Bloomfield, NJ . . . they will be coming in droves to explore it.

Ha you've lost me buddy. That's where I was formerly living, not where this is. I wish Bloomfield had an asylum.

Didn't wear a mask which I usually do in old institutions, but there is lots of fresh air and no fiber-filled tunnels to worry about


Looking at all the pictures of the place I wouldnt think a mask would be needed in a place like that.

DevilC is trying to tell you, in a nice way, that posting the actual name & location of abandonments (both here and on Flickr) is an extremely BAD idea. That is a sure fire way to get the place vandalized, scrapped, locked up and patrolled by the police.

Right, which is why I've been totally vague about it's location and real name, both here, on Flickr, and on other sites. I know the dilly

Ya it seems like the dark history of Western State never really gets talked about in town, and certainly not in the condos brochures or website.

Just sayin'.

Whoops. Slipped up, my bad. Won't let me modify over 24 hours after posting, could a mod fix that?

That flickr isn't mine tho, and I don't believe I linked to it either.

Nice photos! For the record, doesn't Eastern State in Lexington KY (1817/1824) hold title to the oldest asylum in the US now? Just sayin.

9/11/01 all gave some, some gave all. 343.

I believe the formal name for this asylum is:
New Jersey Western Asylum for the Insane and Feeble-minded at Bloomfield.
Sometime in the 1930s it became, simply:
Bloomfield State Hospital.
