Letchworth Village, Rockland County, New York.

Opened in 1911, this institution for the mentally disabled consisted of over 130 buildings. The able-bodied worked on communal farms, and many of the children were forced to be test subjects. The conditions steadily grew worse, due to overpopulation and lack of funding. Eventually Letchworth closed for good in 1996.
