Is this the state hospital in Middletown New York? If so my grandmother was a nurse there.
Hi Lee –
I think this is in Middletown NY because the photographer is based in NY. That’s really cool that your grandmother worked there. I think there may be more photos from this building on the Facebook page for The Kingston Lounge. Check it out if you’re on Facebook!
