Staten Island was host to this year’s Punk Island as part of Make Music New York. Its still one of my favorite events of the year to cover – though I think I preferred the contextual discord of previous years at Governors Island.
Seaview Hospital on Staten Island was once a tuberculosis center and an insane asylum. We spent some time exploring the vast grounds on Sunday. Under the building pictured above was a large basement, from which a doorway led to another chamber too dark to explore. The door was labelled Dad’s Place.
