Modern Hospital

This place is super rare because it is an abandoned hospital but a modern one at that. It was only abandoned in 2002 so it's equipment still looks pretty up to date. Since 2002 some of it was used as a set for HBO's The Wire as a soup kitchen and jail amongst things. They had planned to renovate this entire campus into housing for veterans but that has become stuck in the legal quagmire for the time being while the state and feds argue over who has to pay for the taxes on this place. From what I gather this place was built in the late 1940s although some of the smaller buildings are older. This place is built right across from a late 1800s army fort they built to better defend the outside of the harbor instead of relying on Fort McHenry which is much closer to the city. So this spot has a lot of military significance. These pictures for the most part aren't very good they are just for documentary purposes. I did not bring a tripod because you have to be very sneaky in this place because the caretaker is constantly around and coming inside. On our last trip one of the guys we were with got caught. Lucky for them the caretaker is a nice guy and gave him a tour of the place before sending him away. I decided to make one giant set...
