Outside of New York City with a few miles lies one of the many abandoned homes of the USA. The 57-room mansion was built in the 1930s and makes for a creepy yet majestic abode. Bryan Sansivero, (Instagram) took to the mansion to capture the haunting beauty of the forgotten residence. Apart from being stunning, his photographs depict an eerie picture of what lies within the house.
At the entrance of the mansion, over time vegetation overtook the Siamese staircase that once stood in magnificence, leading to the front door. It is far more intimidating than welcoming now.
Once within the confines of the house, a gigantic staircase greets the visitor, leading up to the abandoned rooms. At the base, a lonesome baby stroller stood frozen in time.
The empty ballroom hosts a giant chandelier and two grand pianos. The quiet room is the opposite of the fun and loud entertainment center it used to be.
A doll found on a tattered couch cushion still sits in place from where her owners last left her.
An impressive collection of women’s footwear serves as a reminder of the excellent choice of the ladies who once resided here.
An open room still hosts a horse with a saddle – a toy which once belonged to a toddler.
The many paintings around the mansion tell the tale of an art lover who once admired beautiful works. Today, the only admirers are the pests and rodents nesting in the walls and behind the fabric of the artwork.
This boarding school trunk was still locked, storing its contents in secret.
In the grand hallway stood this elegant cabinet, which at some point would have served to welcome guests.
The library makes for one of the eeriest rooms. Still decked with books, it lies in ruin like the rest of the place.

The images that were developed from the tour of this abandoned property left Bryan stunned. Undoubtedly a gorgeous structure spread over 6-acres, he and the rest of us can only hope that someone comes along with the right resources to renovate the place. The creepy abandoned mansion has stood empty for almost 50 years now.
