Greystone Park Psychiatric Hospital Remembered – Robert Kirkbride to speak

Greystone Park Psychiatric Hospital Remembered: Its Architectural and Cultural Significance, Its Loss, and Implications for Other Historic Psychiatric Institutions – October 2016 is the one year anniversary of the demolition of Greystone Psychiatric Hospital.
Why does Greystone remain so significant?  Greystone’s Last Stand: ‘As it is with most preservation efforts — The driving reason why people wanted Greystone to be saved was to preserve not only the physical building, but the history contained within. In many cases once a building is razed most of the stories it once held fall with it. … In its final moments Greystone became a martyr, and through its loss communities across the country are now looking at their own Kirkbride asylums with renewed respect. Greystone no longer stands upon its Parsippany hilltop, it now exists in every asylum which has found salvation through its demise.”
