Abandoned North Brother Island, New York City

Over the weekend I stumbled upon these amazing photographs by Christopher Payne. These abandoned buildings, situated on an island only 10 minutes away from the Bronx's Barretto Point Park, operated as a hospital between 1880-1930. The hospital treated patients for diseases such as smallpox, typhus, scarlet fever and leprosy.

The DIY/Renovation enthusiast in me goes a little weak at the knees seeing these images – oh the potential! However, the undeniable beauty here is in the century old decay and the hauntingly empty overgrown spaces.
