Amazing Entertainment Wow

See This Little Island Off Of New York? You’ll Never Guess What’s On It… OMG.

What if I were to tell you that there is an abandoned island between Queens and the Bronx in New York? With a city that is populated with millions of people, how could there be anything, especially an island, that was completely abandoned? The island is called North Brother Island, and one reddit user came across the island when kayaking from Connecticut to New York. The pictures he took of the abandoned island near NYC are absolutely amazing, and it still blows my mind that this island is unoccupied.

North Brother is located between the Bronx and Queens.

The island was developed in 1885. It was originally used to build a hospital complex.

newyork3

They used the hospital to quarantine patients who had small pox or typhoid fever.

newyork4

In the 1950′s, they changed the hospital into a rehabilitation center for patients who were addicted to drugs such as heroin.

newyork5

The entire island has been abandoned since 1963, which makes it even more crazy that it hasn’t been developed into something new, especially with its close proximity to New York City.

They did try to sell the island to investors in the 1970′s but there were no buyers.

newyork7

In order to develop the island, they had to take into account the cost of construction, how they would get materials there, the cost of a sewage system, plus the noise from LaGuardia airport.

newyork8

In the 1980′s they considered building a prison on the island, but it was cheaper to build it in Upstate New York.

The island is slowly taking back the land that was used, one inch at a time.

Some of these pictures are absolutely crazy!

newyork11

I can only imagine how much this place was used decades ago.

newyork12

The toilets were running at one time, but over the years have become unusable.

An old X-ray machine.

The old radiator heaters.

The pictures above were all artwork done by heroin addicts in the 1950′s.

This is the top of an elevator shaft.

This is the view that the tallest building on the island has of Manhattan. What an amazing view!

newyork22

Old food supplies like ketchup and other condiments.

A view from outside of the building.

newyork24

An old fire hydrant.

The tree seems to have grown around this old rotten and rusted staircase.

newyork29

I still can’t get over how close this abandoned island is to NYC. 

newyork30

They had everything they needed on this island, including a tennis court which has since been overgrown.

newyork32

Are those bullet holes in that door? I wonder what the story is behind those!

newyork33

Would you willingly wander this abandoned island? I don’t know if I would, but I’m sure glad that someone did so we can see all the amazing things that have been left behind.
