Rewind to 1885 and it’s during that era that North Brother Island was used a busy hospital complex primarily designed to quarantine members of the public who had been infected with smallpox or the debilitating typhoid fever. It’s situated between the Bronx and Riker’s Island, New York City and later on in its life, the centre become a rehab clinic.
As new developments with easier access have risen up, North Brother Island slowly fell into a state of disrepair eventually becoming abandoned in around 1963.
This is what it looks like today, it’s now a bird sanctuary.
