yes, it is a private group. I will ask Dawn to add you and the others. We are having the reunion in July although the date hasn't been decided as yet. It will be at Onondaga Lake Park in Liverpool, outside Syracuse. I am going to Syracuse to stay with my sister sometime next month. While I'm there, I'm going to check it out and get back to Dawn.

So not true! Dawn is very sick right now. She is unable to do anything with Facebook at this time. She has asked me to let everyone know that as soon as she can, she will add you to the group.(She has COPD). I hope this helps. I'm really looking forward to seeing you there.

AletaE, I cannot imagine what you all thought. I am sure you could not have understood. Your life stories have affected my heart. My family didn't have much, but I never thought about how lucky I was to have what we had, esp a stable family life. It's hard for me to even find the words to say how reading your stories has made me feel. This must sound foolish, but I am anxious to hear if you do have your reunion, who makes it and how it turns out. I hope you will update me. God bless you my friend.

Hope you are feeling better, Dawn. I , too, have read every post. I am amazed how resilient you all were, and how everyone was able to go on with life. I hope you are all able to meet up again. Bless you all.

Ya the old 'Utica Lunatic Asylum' is still operating as Utica Psychiatric Center. With some of the atrocities committed against the mentally ill in years past (and not so long ago either) I can imagine that places like that and Marcy are pretty scary in the dark.

LoL I remember when my mother used to say "You kids are going to put me right in Marcy!"

to scary. yea my mama used to say that to. when I was 5 years old. I used to ask what is marcy. little did I know that I would find out first hand. at age 9 I made that fateful trip down the high way to hell. ( the infamous front drive ) yea it was a fun trip. it wasn't all scary stuff. but I like to make fun. and help keep the scary stories going. cause some of them was real over the years. I was one of the children of crane hill school. doesn't the name. CRANE HILL sound like a cemetery. yea. that's ware they got the name. down the road at the crane family cemetery. asylums and cemeteries. they do go togather. kind of like. fire and gasoline

anybody remember the house on hounted hill. well being in crane hill doring a thunderstorm with the lights out was just like that story. with the 12 ft high ceilings and the large windows. it was almost castle like. and then there was the tunnels. most old asylums have them. and some of the basements in the older buildings was also kind of creepy. I remember the ones in C and D buildings. thay were creepy. we used to like to scare each outher. and holloween was vary special here

parts of marcy was creepy. but you should see the oridginal one in utica. they say in the basement you can see the rings that they put the chains thrue. marcy was built in 1923. but the one in utica was built in 1853. and it looks like a giant moualeam or a temple. yea. the temple of doom. and yes I'm a fan of stephen king. as kids we used to watch the monster movie mantinee. the monster mansion on channel 3 in syracuse at 1pm every Saturday. anybody remember that

to Ericka. what was the marcy asylum or officialy known as marcy state hospital doesn't exist anymore. the forme. marcy campus is now a state prison known as midstate correctional facility. it occupies the back hafe of the campus. and the tall 6 story twine tower is now known as the central new York psychatrice center. a completely different facility then the old marcy state hospital witch was a civil mental hospital. central new York is a foransic mental hospital for people who are eather in a local jail or doing time in a correctional facility someware. a lot of people confuse the two facilitys central new york used to. be Marcys medical and surgical building. also known as B building. and the building at the head of the front drive is now a civil confinement facility for sex offenders that completed there prison sentence. but who are considered a danger of commuting a new sex effence. the last marcy patients left in 1991

to Erica. marcy was the whole campus at one time. it originaly was a branch of the one in utica. marcy was built in 1923. of what was a farm colony of the utica state hospital in west utica. now known as the Mohawk valley psychatrice center. witch was established in 1853. it was the first state mental hospital in new York state. outside of new York city. you can maybe find out more infermation from utica

and the original name for utica state. was the utica lunatic asylum. I don't believe that marcy was ever called an asylum. but thats what a lot of us like to refure to it as. cause in reality that's what it was an insane asylum. the term hospital gave it not souch a midevil title. now they call them psychatrice centers. cause even the term state hospital became an evil sounding term. and some states call them behavioral health centers now. that's what they are called now in the state of Ohio. I will bet that new york will be calling there's the same thing before long. cause it sounds more modern

new york had two type of mental asylums. the ones here being discussed are the state hospitals. utica being the oldest. but there is another type of mental asylum that,existed. it's what was called state school. these asylums was for the mentally retarded or now what they call developmentally disabled. rome ny had one of these asylums it is now prison too. the oldest state was in syracuse ny on 800 s wilbor av and the biggest one was on statin island in new york. it was called willowbrook and it was a hedis place of mistreatment. it is now statin island college a part of the suny system. if only the college students knew what happened at there campus years ago they would have nightmares

1) We did get in there and got some fantastic evidence. And not orbs. What website did you view of ours that shows orbs? Like I said those of us that are legitimate do not believe in orbs....
2) Learn how to speak English, your speak only emphasizes your ignorance.
3) I would have happily shared the history of the place but you can get the same information at the historical society on Genesee Street. I don't recommend sneaking in by window there....
I thought it rather amusing that you admonished someone for not speaking English properly in one of their comments to you, but you also made a serious grammatical gaffe when you wrote,'your speak only emphasizes your ignorance.' You could've substituted 'your speech' or 'the way you speak' rather than 'your speak'.
