Inside the lost island of New York: Eerie pictures of the abandoned leper colony just 350 yards from the Bronx

Just 350 yards from the Bronx, North Brother Island was first employed as a quarantine centre in 1885. It was soon a home to six lepers. Its most notorious resident was 'Typhoid Mary' - the first healthy carrier of any disease ever to be identified - who spent years confined in its bleak woods. Closed in 1963, it is now a haunting labyrinth of crumbling ruins
