Return Visit: North Brother Island in the Summer:

ianference:

After a hiatus lasting over 3 years, my blog has relaunched with a new photoessay up about my final trip to North Brother Island – which was my only trip during the summer months!  And here in Brooklyn, we’re wishing it was summer right now.  But this new essay offers some glimpses into what the island looks like when even the NYC Parks Department is not allowed to set foot there – so go on over and take a look at the abandoned quarantine facility that housed “Typhoid” Mary Mallon!

One of the things I loved most about Seaview Sanatorium – particularly the Women’s Ward Pavilions – was the hand-lettering that abounded on the signs, doors, etc.  Most of the buildings were in a lovely institutional green that fit with cutting-edge contemporary sanatoriums for the treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis.  This “TREATMENT ROOM” double-door has always confused me though – why one pain of regular frosted glass, and one pain of red frosted glass?

In the forgotten and Ill-maintained Wyckoff mausoleum in the Bronx’s Woodlawn Cemetery, marble busts sit at the base of each algae-coated sarcophagus, staring away from the exit, and away from the bodies interred within the granite tomb.
