This kind of stuff gets me psyched. Not too long ago I posted about parts of Ellis Island now being left to ruin. Then I found this online. How cool is this place? North Brother Island is situated in one of the busiest and densely populated parts of the world; New York City. Just east of Manhattan, in the East River situated between the Bronx and Riker’s Island. So on your next trip to NYC, check it out! I know I will.
The place used to be home to a hospital, the ruins still there, where people with contagious diseases were treated. It also served as an alternative drug rehab center, and a home for troubled teens. Now, it just sits there in all it’s late 19th Century glory.
