Renwick Smallpox hospital, Roosevelt Island, New York.

Located in the East River between Manhattan and Queens, formerly known as Blackwell Island, Roosevelt island was the perfect spot to build a hospital for the smallpox outbreak in 1856. The building later turned into a nursing school, then closed for good in 1950. The hospital no longer has inside walls, windows, or a roof.
