Public service announcement - the wonderful Henryton Sanitarium in Patapsco Park just outside Baltimore has been demolished. After a fire there in March Maryland found the money to demo it. Demolition was originally scheduled for early 2014, but it was pushed up and started in June. As of last week nearly all of it has been torn down, and asbestos remediation has obliterated what little is left.  As of mid-July I don't expect any of it to remain standing.

Its a loss to the photographic and videography community. Unfortunately, many users did not treat the place with the respect it deserved, and dangerous ruins and underage drinking led to the recent fire and several injuries.

It will be missed.
