This has been published for a while now, but I’m going through some old saved tabs and this one was too good to keep ignoring. The Kingston Lounge journeyed into North Brother Island, an island in NYC that has literally been abandoned completely since 1963. It has a rich history of being an insane asylum, a hospital for various diseases in the early 20th century, and a layout that resembles that of the Shutter Island film (although the two have no connection).

The photos are quite exciting to go through as well as the long read in historic information that The Kingston Lounge has dug up. It reminds me that I need to do some more exploring!
