PostSubject: This Is Where We Used to Quarantine People Infected With Deadly Diseases Like Ebola   Fri Oct 17, 2014 10:20 am

[quote="The hospital specialized in treating patients with Smallpox and allowed officials to isolate infected individuals from the public. Over time, it was used to treat patients with other quarantinable diseases. Later, it served as a place to accommodate returning World War II veterans and the center eventually opened to provide treatment for drug addicts. A decade later, in 1963, it was ultimately closed and abandoned. Since, the island’s facilities have been decommissioned and the grounds are closed to the public. The island now serves as a bird sanctuary. Photographs reveal the former hospital and facilities crumbling and overrun by plants. City council member Mark Levine recently visited the island, telling the Gothamist it’s filled with “so much history” like “how we’ve dealt with epidemics.” “To visit there was an experience unlike any other that I’ve had,” Levine he said. “These ruins of the former hospital that have been overrun by nature,” he continued to the Gothamist. “The experience of being completely isolated in this forest with these half decayed beautiful buildings as you faintly hear in the background the sounds of the city.” ]
