Charity Hospital

A few months back I took this shot of the old Charity Hospital.

Charity Hospital

It’s abandoned since Katrina, and there’s talk of using it for residential purposes. My grandmother learned nursing at Charity in the 20’s, in the old wooden buildings.

These buildings (or this building) has served since the building sprees during the great depression, and remains as an iconic sense of art deco architecture, and/or of loss, depending on how one looks at it. It’s huge, and inside the hospital is made of of long wards in many areas. Covered in mildew, and rotting at the seams, it stands as a silent witness to indecision.

But why not look at the bright side: it’s got lots of potential.

Splash, out.
