Welcome to Bellevue

please empty your pockets, and your mind..

Oh, Ken, this photo is beautifully disturbing. I actually got slightly nauseous seeing the words over the entrance... perfect caption.

Stefan Jansson said...

Do they have a room for me?

sonia a. mascaro said...

Impressive photo and perfect caption too!
Love your huge photos, Ken Mac, we can see all the details.

From the angle to the entryway to the souless windows, that's as chilling as it gets.

Have you read Wisconsin Death Trip?

You can read some of the tales of persons committed to psychiatric hospitals in the 1880s. Chilling, like your photograph.

Great photograph! My son was born in Bellevue. Not in this part of the hospital (really), but still a highly memorable experience.

Barbara Farr said...

Historic Bellevue Probably the most well-known hospital. I like your perspective.


Such a beautiful building for not so good things -- barbara

Great shot again. Like the classic details of the entrance and then the massive violence of the mass behind. A style patented by the USA and also a bit by the USSR.

RuneE said...

Even I have heard of the place. I'll stay here and admire the photo.

It's so famous, yet this might be the first photo I've seen. No wonder the first connotations are scary.

Suzanne said...

Very nice! Love the angle and the green mold.

Jan said...

Wonderful architecture and history in one photo...love it!!!

I have never seen a picture of the place, very interesting.

As a kid growing up in 1940's Oklahoma I knew that Bellevue was a mental hospital in New York City from the old radio shows. If somebody was nuts they "took him to Bellevue". Now I know what it looks like.
