i have fond memories of oak knoll, the site where i used to work. right before i left, in late 2009, there was some uproar from the neighbors about the site being a fire hazard and serious talk of demolishing (post lehman brothers breakdown) began to happen. well, yesterday, some serious demolition did happen–the old hospital was imploded (that link is for video, but here’s a good article).
i am sad to see it go. kristin & i used to go on exploratory runs around the site, breaking down doors and checking out the eerie, abandoned buildings. reminiscing, i decided to go through my file of photos and finally post some good ol’ oak knoll shots, which i’ve been meaning to do since i took them.
