Cane Hill, abandoned asylum. I was drawn to this image at first becasue of the type (this is something im interested in) i then was fasinated by the structure and depth thata the image holds. Becasue of the type this peice almost tells a story, we can see the 'Fire exit' the exit route that once was. The paint decay and rust adds to the details and ives that sense of growth and development.
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
