PHOTO COURTESY OF PATRICIA REILLY, OPEN WINDOW CREATIONS.

Welcome back
to St. Joseph's Village in Rockleigh, NJ.
In 1972 the Village closed its doors after having served as a home for dependent children since 1958. Here, in a safe place on the Web, former residents and staff return to walk down this corridor again. Some to recall nostalgic childhood memories. Others to seek closure. All to remember the good times and the times of trouble too.
This is our story...

"I love the view down the corridor toward infinity! The corridor-scene reaches beyond the actual events to an infinity, a purposefulness beyond what we see, beyond the stories we tell. The windows provide a glimpse of life beyond the confines of the orphanage. Throughout childhood I desperately longed for an open window, a breath of fresh air, a reminder of the world beyond the four-walls of the orphanage." -Patricia Reilly
