CREEPY COOL PICS: Eerie pictures of the abandoned leper colony just 350 yards from the Bronx
Stairwells strewn with debris and walls crumbling slowly to dust, it is the island that New York forgot for 50 years.

Now, in a series of extraordinarily eerie pictures, the lost world of North Brother - quarantine zone, leper colony and centre for drug addicts - has been brought back to life.
It is hard to believe that these echoing corridors and abandoned halls were home to hundreds of patients - or that a criss-cross of tree-lined avenues were once roads.

But the haunting quality of these pictures makes it easy to imagine that it was a place of indescribable misery, which one inmate compared to the notorious black hole of Calcutta.

Wow! I would love to visit.

"It was soon a home to six lepers. Its most notorious resident was 'Typhoid Mary' - the first healthy carrier of any disease ever to be identified - who spent years confined in its bleak woods."

Could this have been where the tale of Bloody Mary originated? hmm

North Brothers is near Rikers Island [NYC Jail; very big]. It's closer to land, and easy to see. I wonder why it's been totally abandoned all these years?

And apparently they quarantined and treated people with venereal diseases like syphilis on N. Brothers.

Ah, I had not thought about that. Are we sure that's where the game began, Or is it just coincidence? Because the article points out this specific "Mary" as if it's reader should make some previous connection to it.

Bloody Mary is a ghost or witch featured in modern American folklore. She is said to appear in a mirror when her name is called three times or sometimes more while in a dark room, depending upon the version of the story, often as part of a game or dare.

Re: CREEPY COOL PICS: Eerie pictures of the abandoned leper colony just 350 yards from the Bronx
the daily mail is full of shit... that's "randalls island", it wasnt a quarantine station, it was an insane asylum... typhoid mary was detained BOTH times at the immigration quarantine station in st george, on staten island... it's located 100 yds or so towards the verrazano bridge from the si ferry terminal, is listed in the historical register of the city, and 20 years ago, at least, had a fairly huge plaque that spelled out it's historical use, and mary's 2 sentences there.... the leper colony was on "goat island", which lies about 5 miles off the east shore of staten island.... goat island was later used by DOD to test bioweapons,(specifically anthrax) and landing there is strictly verboten.... in the late 90s, an artist planted a sculpture of a ufo, and alien silhouettes on goat island, and was threatened with prosecution for "marine pollution"... a year or so later, a piano was left there by somebody making a music video, with the same result... in both instances, they just boated back out and recovered their "dumped property" and avoided prosecution... they, of course, had to recover the items without permission... i worked 100 yds away from the quarantine station for a couple of years, and often wandered past it on my way to and from work....

 Quoting: Ghost Rider


I had my first talk with Mary in the kitchen of this house. . . . I was as diplomatic as possible, but I had to say I suspected her of making people sick and that I wanted specimens of her urine, feces and blood. It did not take Mary long to react to this suggestion. She seized a carving fork and advanced in my direction. I passed rapidly down the long narrow hall, through the tall iron gate, . . . and so to the sidewalk. I felt rather lucky to escape.2

IF THOU DOST NOT SPEAK TO WARN THE WICKED from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but HIS BLOOD WILL I REQUIRE AT THINE HAND... IF THOU WARN THE WICKED of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but THOU HAST DELIVERED THY SOUL..." - Ezekiel 33:7-15
