One of Staten Island’s coolest landmarks, although not even an officially registered landmark though they’ve tried to fight for it, this castle is the only old castle that stands this tall.
Unfortunately rumor is, at least from ForgottenNY, that the building will be razed due to Hurricane Irene ripping off the roof.
Sure the building is in a bad neighborhood and has been abandoned for over 25 years, but
it’s such a cool-looking decoration for the surrounding neighborhood. I’d dig for a castle decoration for my Sims 2 neighborhood.
I think, even though I will probably unhappy with the result, I will do a 3d model of the old castle. Maybe doing this will teach me that it doesn’t matter if the end result isn’t perfect but that it was the thought that really mattered.
Btw, if you want to learn about NYC’s 5 boroughs, ForgottenNY is the best site to go to because they have indepth articles about almost every neighborhood.
This is what the hospital used to look like. Admittedly, it doesn’t look as god but the 4 towers still stand tall and can be seen from blocks away. If I find some pictures of what it looks like now, I’ll post them.
