This Abandoned Hospital In New York Has Officially Been Taken Over By Cats
There’s something so intriguing about abandoned buildings. It’s amazing to imagine the past of a building and how many people have walked through the area. While there are many abandoned buildings in New York City, only one has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Roosevelt Island’s Smallpox Hospital was once an important institution that treated smallpox patients. Now abandoned, the island has been taken over by feral cats.
