An arrangement of brick graffiti on the old boiler house building near the railroad tracks.
A scrapped steam turbine, perhaps. In the background you can see a gutted casing for another turbine.
At the bottom of the stairs to the caves is this collection of brick arches. I wonder what this area looks like now that a new tenant has taken over this building.

In the ward for the criminally insane, this door was the most-worn. Nail scratches mark the area around the peep hole, the wood is gouged everywhere from thrown chairs and hard kicks, and a ominous blood-colored stain is visible where it dripped in the second inset from the bottom.
