This Abandoned Island Lies In The Middle Of New York City! (videos)
"Ghosts? Zombies.. Brad Pitt? This forgotten isle in the East River between Bronx and Rikers Island, NYC would make for a perfect film backdrop! Recognizable are its abandoned buildings from the late 19th century including the remains of Riverside Hospital, which quarantined those suffering from infectious diseases. The site also held experimental drug treatments and was a detention home for wayward youth."
