New York City’s mysterious abandoned North Brother Island (20 pictures)

Located in between Queens and the Bronx, 20 acre North Brother Island was in use by New York City from 1885 to 1963 as a hospital complex to quarantine and treat people suffering from smallpox and typhoid fever then a rehab center and a housing project for WWII vets.
