850. Children’s Village (Dobbs Ferry)

The Children’s Village located in Dobbs Ferry, New York since 1901 has a dark evil past which is now about to be revealed. It was named New York Juvenile Asylum before. Many lawsuits concerning alleged sexual abuse have emerged. Investigation into the matter is still ongoing here in 2021.

The facility has existed since 1851. More recent cases shows that there had been problems as late as in 2006.

Some acts of abuse were made by former employees, others by former children placed at the facility and the management did according to the lawsuit not address the problems.

It could not have been fun to be placed there as a child.
