Rennwick Hospital Ruins

 As i had explained on my other/main photo blog i have been taking a bit of a hiatus from the internerd as of late due to school/work/travel madness. Please forgive my absense. I have shot new exciting work recently tho, which always re-animates me in a number of ways.

Anyways, here's today's photo - These smallpox hospital ruins are on Roosevelt island.. in NYC! That is Manhattan beyond. The building is sadly crumbling and rudely stablized for the time being. The land around it is now park on the tip of the island that is open (during the day only) to the public. There is a fence that surround the ruins however. You can reach the island by taking a little bridge over from Queens or taking the Sky-tram thingy over from Manhattan that looks really neat but i've never rode personally.
