Reminiscent Images

Manhattan Psychiatric Center
A number of years ago, I did my pre-doctoral clinical psychology internship at Manhattan Psychiatric Center in New York City, a huge (more than 1,300 long-term patients) state psychiatric hospital. It was located on Ward's Island in the Hudson River just east of Harlem, and it was common then for patients to remain in the hospital for many, many years.

One of my fellow interns was Michael Fenichel, a younger relative of the deceased psychoanalytic pioneer, Otto Fenichel. Dr. Fenichel now has an outstanding website devoted to mental health care, internet resources and (one of his deep interests) photography. His website can be found at:

Among the many photographs that are available from his site are those shown below (Michael gave me some of these pictures many years ago, which I highly value):

Times Square (early 1980's)

Paris: Boulangerie

Turkey: Peach Peddler
