Built in 1854 on the southern tip of Roosevelt Island, a ruined castle-like structure which was once the Smallpox Hospital (Renwick Ruin) and is now inaccessible to the public. Closed in 1950.

Unusually, it is well-lit at night and its ghostly outline can be seen from Manhattan after dark.

Wow those are great shots.
Strange they have not torn it down for new construction, the land as to be worth a mint.
I bet the inside is quite creepy.

that's a really cool building, it would be cool to remodel it and reuse it (although I agree that would be kind of creepy)

Thanks Cameron, Jeff and Latazyo.

I find it strange that they haven't torn it down either. For years, it always looked creepy and haunted.

There's some sort of construction/renovation going on at the grounds and I believe they will be building a public park, just south of the building.

How fascinating!!!!

WOW.
What an interesting looking place. Freaky.
And small! I mean, it appears small to me when compared to surrounding buildings.

Great shots, again!:biggrin:
