GALLERY: As Psych Center Demo Begins, Buildings Fade into History

We've got a few photos of buildings slated to be knocked down, but we'd love you to contribute to our gallery.

With the demolition of several Kings Park Psychiatric Center buildings underway as July 1, the long-planned project is poised to wipe many places that have stood in the area for decades from the map.

So before they are lost for good, we've started this gallery to capture some of the structures that will be dismantled. If you have any photos of your own, please add them to our gallery.

For a full list of buildings set to be demolished, .

There's not a developer in his right mind that would take on a cleanup bill like that. We're talking tens of millions of dollars & at least 5-8 years of cleanup & removal before any plans would even be drawn up...

It is very sad to see these buildings go. The hospital had such an impact on the former patients and staff and the community. The buildings with their unique architecture and interesting history have served their purpose but it is time for them to go and make way to benefit the lives of future generations. This home and place of employment to thousands will never be forgotten. This demolition is a big step toward all of our benefit- keeping foolish teens and urban explorers out of these condemned buildings and removing rotting buildings from the lovely Kings Park. R.I.P. KPPC!
