I have discovered a relative who was an inmate at the New York State School for Mental Defectives in Newark in 1930. Can anyone tell me if this institution still exists today? I have been unable to determine that by searching the internet. It appears that the buildings may still exist. Also, where could admission/discharge records be located? Was/Is there a cemetery on the grounds?

Thanks for any help!
