So this is my first post here, partially sharing about this place, partially to ask advice. There is place near where that used to be called the Binghamton Inebriate Asylum. Its construction began in 1858, was converted to an insane asylum in 1879, closed in 1993 after part of the building collapsed. It was listed as a National Historic Landmark in 1997 and in 1999 it was listed as one of NY states most endangered buildings. Its located on the property of the new psychiatric hospital, so security and such is very vigilant and they chase people off even just taking pictures of the outside. I am new to all of this, but my question is how does one go about getting permission to photograph a property if you need to? I would love to get inside and take photos, but as I mentioned, security keeps a close eye on the place and its fenced off pretty well.
