[WATCH] Abandoned NYC: Roosevelt Island Renwick Smallpox Hospital

Located in the middle of New York Cities east river, lays the ruins of a hospital forgotten by the city it once cared for. The crumbling walls of Renwick Smallpox Hospital lay tribute to a time when diseases killed by the thousands. Opened in 1856 and seeing use until the 1950s this structure now claims the only title of a NYC ruins landmark.
