Wine Post 5– Cropsey & Willowbrook State School

There are few things that haunt the American Gothic conscience more than the monolithic and, often, abandoned buildings that used to function as “Asylums.” This week on the Witches & Winos Podcast, we go deep into the legend of Cropsey on Staten Island New York and it’s murky history entangled with the former Willowbrook State School.

Thanks to the investigative reporting done by Geraldo Rivera, there is plenty of footage available to attest to the horrific conditions the children placed in Willowbrook’s care suffered.
