Codey to call for Task Force to find ways to save Greystone

January 3, 2010

State Sen. Richard Codey (D-Essex) is calling for a state-sponsored effort to find ways to preserve, interpret and re-use the historic Greystone psychiatric hospital (PNJ 10 Most Endangered Historic Site 2003).  According to the Star Ledger, Codey “will introduce a resolution next week when the Senate reconvenes to establish a panel to include historians, mental health advocates, architects, local, county and state officials, plus former Greystone patients and/or family members.”

PNJ is pleased to hear of Sen. Codey’s support for preservation of this nationally significant historic site in Morris County.  Perhaps a charrette, similar to that sponsored by PNJ, AIA-NJ, the National Trust for Historic Preservation and other state and national organizations, to explore preservation and re-use potential of Eero Saarinen’s Bell Labs building in Holmdel, would be an effective way to move ahead with this complex preservation study?
