Mysteriously Abandoned In 1976, This Creepy Mansion Just Gave Up Its Secrets

Just a few miles outside the overdeveloped metropolis of New York City, a crumbling relic of an era gone by remains untouched for forty years.

This 57-room mansion is entirely abandoned – but eerie traces of its past linger on.

A vast shoe collection, creepy toy dolls, and even a child’s stroller lie forgotten, frozen in time.

In a series of haunting images, photographer Bryan Sansivero has documented the mansion as it is now.

Built in the late 1930s, and last inhabited in the 1970s, the neglect is allegedly down to an owner who would buy lavish mansions and inexplicably leave them to rot.

Sitting on six acres of land, the house comes equipped with a bowling alley, indoor tennis court, two bars and a library – it is a realtor’s dream property.And while the building itself is in need of repairs, the collections within it remain untouched.

The mansion has 57 rooms, and looks like something out of a horror movie.Grand entrance: The overgrown shrubbery and unkempt trees correspond to the mansion’s disheveled interior
