something else. I have been in there..NOT as a patient, but a guest of a neighbor who supplied the commissary food chain for the whole asylum. We had lunch in there. I'll say one thing, I would not buy into one of those Condos. Theres more spooks and ghosts over there than the Indian burial grounds.
A proper name for the place would be Cuckoo Condos. Every time I take Rt. 62 to Danvers, going by there reminds of that movie. "One flew over the Cuckoos nest.

Maybe they think there is something in the walls that will ''rub off', as there is a story that goes like this:
A reporter was visiting an ''insane asylum'' to do a human interest story.
He came out to leave and found a flat tie. Jacked the car up, removed the lug nuts and placed them in the wheel cover. While removing the flat tire/wheel he bumped the wheel cover and the lug nuts all rolled down the nearby street drain.
He stared at the situation, then turned to a ''resident'' who was sitting on the porch and asked if there was a phone available.
''Nope, but I'll tell you what I would do''
''What's that ?''
''I'd take one nut off each of the other wheels and use them until I got to a garage that could replace all of them''
The reported thought about this, and looked at the resident in surprise.
The resident - ''I may be crazy, but I'm not stupid !''
