Coordinates: 41°38′14″N 73°34′20″W / 41.63734°N 73.57229°W / 41.63734; -73.57229 Harlem Valley State Hospital, south of the hamlet of Wingdale in the Town of Dover, was a New York State psychiatric hospital that operated from 1924 to 1994.[1][2]

The grounds were originally slated to be a correctional facility, Wingdale Prison, but complaints by the local population caused a re-purposing of the buildings (under construction) into a state hospital. It is located on NY 22/55 opposite the Harlem Valley-Wingdale station on the Metro-North Harlem Line.

The hospital was closed in 1994 due to budget cuts and was sold to Dover Knolls, a housing development company.
