: North Brother Island is a 20-acre collection of ruins in the middle of New York City. It was once home to a quarantine hospital and the residence of Typhoid Mary. Today it is a wildlife sanctuary, abandoned and off-limits to visitors. Between 2008 and 2013, photographer Christopher Payne was granted exclusive access to the island. He found buildings consumed by vegetation, and hints of a city’s future without people. Payne will share his discoveries using images from his book, North Brother Island: The Last Unknown Place in New York City (Fordham University Press, 2014), and discuss North Brother’s remarkable history with Manhattan Borough Historian Michael Miscione. Book signing and reception to follow.See more cheap New York City events & things to do on Nifty NYC.
