deejayforte Find someplace (where you can fall to your death in multiple ways) to get lost.

Unfortunately, I've been unable to find any information about when this pump house was built, who owned it or when it was abandoned.

deejayforte Today was one of those adventures where you could walk into a building and say "yeah, I could see myself falling to my death." Never have I seen a building in such bad shape; most of the metal staircases and large portions of the floor had collapsed.

deejayforte ⚛ In thermodynamics, there is a point at which water can coexist as a solid, liquid and gas in the same space (e.g., a bucket) under a specific combination of pressure and temperature. This thermodynamic equilibrium is called the “triple point.” On Earth, the triple point of water is 0.01 °C | 0.006037 atm.

  •   ssserotonin It certainly is a fascinating subject to research, especially considering that we're about 78% water.. It's good to know these things. I'm still at the lake, yes. I'm going through some really intense experiences here and surrendering to the beauty of the present moment. I will spend the next week in complete silence so that means no IG or social networks either! 4d

deejayforte ⚛Did you know: Water is a very stable molecule. The amount of energy required to combine (or break apart) the hydrogen and oxygen bonds (H2O) is so powerful, it's able to lift rockets ~22,000/mph, with a cargo capacity of ~29,000 lbs (Delta IV Heavy) off the ground; which is called an "exothermic reaction." So when you drink a glass of water, it basically contains water molecules created from the formation of Earth.

  •   catherine.newyork Hahah too funny omg blush!! I was only there for an hour because I has to go to an event but nice to make your acquaintance through Insta 6d
  •   syntax_error I did not! I'll never drink water the same way anymore 6d

  •   cacahuete_sr so fun! when the heck was this instameet that i missed !? 6d
  •   deejayforte @cacahuete_sr I didn't know either! There were multiple going on that weekend; I was completely oblivious, haha. I woke up at 1pm on Sunday and managed catch the last half hour of the meet in Bushwick (100 people?) and then quickly went to catch the start of another in Dumbo. I knew, maybe 3 people the entire day? It felt like the "old days" when we first met, and everyone was alien— haha. It was a nice time 6d

deejayforte Throughout the years, I’ve met wonderful people through Instagram who I can consider genuine friends. Some constantly travel or currently reside outside of New York, but we text regularly, talk on the phone, get together for breakfast, go on adventures, and even FaceTime whenever we can; it’s something that truly means a lot to me.

Yesterday, I traveled throughout NYC for #wwim11 and participated in two great #wwim11nyc meet ups. The last of the day being one of twenty-three hosted by @charitywater #WWDInstameets, which hosted WWIM's throughout the world this weekend for #WorldWaterDay. I hope at least one person came into your life this past weekend who will someday genuinely influence you for the better.

Did you know: Humans have nearly 100 trillion microscopic bugs in them which make up 80% of our proteins. When we eat food, the bugs and bacteria inside us eat first.

deejayforte "Hospital Z" [alias] was a tuberculosis sanatorium, now a national historic district located on [Redacted,] New York. The complex was built between 1905 - 1938 and was the largest, most costly municipal facility for the treatment of tuberculosis of its date in the United States.

Seen here: Building 7, Patient Pavilions. A collapsed ceiling hangs idle behind me.

deejayforte If you feel like you failed: you didn't. It just simply, plainly, and utterly did not work out and that's okay; don't give up. It's okay to be excited— to feel intoxicated, but take your time. Truly understand one another without living in a paracosm; a fictional world. Learn from your mistakes, have respect, and take it easy— but take it. 4w
  •   deejayforte I don't normally group my responses to people in one comment, but I think this deserves a genuine thank you for appreciating the advice above.

deejayforte By the end of the 1950’s, "Hospital X" housed more than 7,000 patients, most of who were erroneously diagnosed with schizophrenia.

Schizophrenia, while a legitimate and common diagnosis, was greatly overused before modern psychology and medicine identified and classified other disorders previously considered to be schizophrenia, such as autism, obsessive compulsive disorder, bipolar disorder, and anxiety.

deejayforte Founded in 1912 as a Farm Colony of [redacted] State Hospital, "Hospital X” [alias] was a building in a state-run psychiatric hospital located in [redacted,] New York. The 300-acre campus continues to operate today; housing only a few hundred patients. However, many buildings like “Hospital X” lie fallow.

Seen here: For 40 years, generations of pigeons have defecated on the floor of the 4th floor ward accumulating upwards of several feet in height. The horrendous smell of guano is stark at every turn.

deejayforte One equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will. To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield. — Alfred, Lord Tennyson.

Determined to explore in a light snow storm, I made it to Hospital X [alias] today. I will go in-depth about this facility in future posts. Never let anyone or anything stop you from doing what you love.

deejayforte (Dia-) {Greek} used in the formation of compound words to mean through, between, and across.

Located in a former printing plant built in 1929 by Nabisco ("National Biscuit Company,") Dia:Beacon is a museum for the collection of large-scale installations, paintings, and sculptures of contemporary art dating from the 1960s to the present. Opened in 2003, the museum is situated on the banks of the Hudson River in Beacon, New York. In keeping with Dia's history of single-artist, site-related presentations— each gallery is designed specifically for the art it contains.

Did you know? — The @diaartfoundation pioneered the conversion of industrial buildings for the installation of art and design; a practice and aesthetic now widely adopted by museums and galleries internationally.
