The New York Cancer Hospital (NYCH) was built in the late 1800s, where it remained functioning for almost 100 years. Located at 455 Central Park West, between 105th St and 106th Street, the circa-1880s structure looks like a castle, but despite its old world beauty it was almost demolished in the 1970s, when the hospital shut down. Before it even closed its doors, patients complained of decrepit conditions inside, but when it was landmarked in 1976, it was given a new life.
The property actually sat abandoned for about three decades, but eventually the developers came around in 2000 and turned this place into a luxury condominium.
Curbed notes a unit is on the market for $8 million—its 5,317-square-feet span two floors, which contain 5 bedrooms, 6 full baths, a library, a den, a large eat-in kitchen with direct views of Central Park, a wood-burning stove, and ghosts, because it is haunted, but you will get your own parking spot, and there's a pool. Ghosts can't swim.
