“On February 28, 1896, by act of the Legislature, the New York City asylums for the insane were transferred to state care, under the name of the Manhattan State Hospitals, with three divisions, namely: Manhattan State Hospital East (male department), Manhattan State Hospital West (female department), on Ward’s Island; and Manhattan State Hospital at Central Islip for both sexes. At that date there were 30 buildings at Central Islip. In 1912, not including a group of four in process of construction, there are 118.”

  1. I have also hit a brick wall in regards to my Great Grandfather, shows up on the 1950 census as a patient at the Central Islip State Hospital. He would have been 67 years old. No records in any death index, do not know what year he died, assuming at the hospital. I hope the legislation gets passed. The families deserve to know the fate of these descendents. There are less controls and safeguards on our national security.
