You Wouldn't Believe This Abandoned Hospital Is located in THIS City

Abandoned hospitals carry weird stories of the people and city, be it an ultramodern city or a rural village.  When we think about New York, a picture of the modern city residing 8 million people and half-mile-tall buildings comes into mind. But, the city has a lot of wilderness and many decaying buildings which is completely opposite of its image. 

Just a few miles away of island Manhattan, there is a place abandoned since the 1960's which is holding a strange secret.
