Watch Skaters Shred An Abandoned Mental Hospital

November 18, 2014 | Bucky Turco

Jenkem magazine released a gnarly new skate video entitled “The Search for BLDG.40,” that was shot at an “abandoned psychiatric center in New York state.” Although skateboarders Sean Collelo and Rob Miclei didn’t name the off-limits location, it appears to be the old Rockland Psychiatric Center, an expansive mental hospital built in 1927. It’s comprised of several derelict buildings, including one named Building 40, making it a hotspot for urban explorers.

Below is exhibit A and B.
