Greystone's Last Stand - 2015 Update

Hello all. It's been a little while since I've last posted, but that's due to Christina and I being involved in several large-scale projects (which happen to all involve abandonment) and not having as much free time as we would like. One of these projects is a film we are crafting titled Greystone's Last Stand. We are making it with assistance from the organization Preserve Greystone, and it's purpose is to tell the story of the abandoned Greystone Park Psychiatric Center in New Jersey. Right now things are looking grim for the old place, so PLEASE share this video around if you can. We are desperately trying to generate public awareness about the state's illegal demolition plans, and we think video may be the best format to do so.

Below is our latest update video for our film project "Greystone's Last Stand". In this update we travel to Weston, WV to visit the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum. The people behind this successful historic site were one of many parties interested in rehabilitating the old Greystone asylum in Parsippany, NJ. They, along with all other proposals for reuse were rejected by the state. Time and time again the state of New Jersey has stated that a main factor in the rejection of these plans was that every proposal required state funding of some kind. This is utterly untrue, and here we see proof.

As always, thanks for watching.
