Vertical Slums • Kowloo Walled City, Hong Kong-still think we need to change the word "slum" though and give people living there more dignity, don't they deserve that much?

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 used as quarantine centre in 1885. It was soon a home to 6 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. This island was also witness to the 1904 fire on board the passenger ship, General Slocum which killed 1,021 people on a church outing. Closed in 1963, it is now a haunting labyrinth of crumbling ruins
