North Brother Island

I did not know about North Brother Island, considered part of The Bronx.
Very good info and photos by someone who got special permission to go there and shoot the Island and the inside of the old structures.

Re: North Brother Island

Thanks Paddy. Glad to see someone looked at the site.
I put this in the History category because, well, it's NY history.
After almost a week went by and no one saw it, I put the Morris-Jumel Mansion, Willis ave bridge, etc. in 'stories' where it would be more likely to get noticed.
