    North Brother Island, New York
    Situated within crowded New York City, North Brother Island is an unlikely abandoned settlement with a sinister history. Originally an isolated hospital(built in 1885) for infectious small pox victims, the island is most famous for quarantining Mary Mallon, or‘Typhoid Mary’ for over twenty years. In the 1950s, the hospital became a treatment centre for drug addicts before its closure just a decade later. Today the area is a bird sanctuary. While it’s off-limits to the public, this doesn’t stop plenty of urban explorers wandering around the haunting hospital buildings.

    I'm an Environmental remediation contractor. These are my stomping grounds. I take the asbestos out of places like these before they're demolished / renovated. Spooky as shit places.

    I would almost bet asbestos is the reason the public is being denied access.

    You pass by it on the Circle Line boats. Ellis island is also incredibly fascinating. There's still graffiti by the immigrants on some furniture and walls. A billion stories to be told.

    It's amazing because it's NYC and someone hasn't turned it into hipster communes yet.
