This leper colony was abandoned 50 years ago. It was opened in 1885 and used to be city's only official leper colony. It's hard to believe but the colony located just 350 yards from the crowded tenements of the Bronx.

it's shame that they don't gut the place and refurbish it. some of the architecture is beautiful...

i hate when websites disclose locations so blatantly. im an urbex'er and have seen locations just like this ruined due to vandals and scrappers.
great photos though.

Don't worry mashie5, I very much doubt there's anything left to take anymore. The scrappers might go in for the iron stairs, but I suspect the building will collapse on them before they finish.

This site has been featured on a couple of the 'abandoned places' sites, and the location was disclosed a fair while ago. I have seen it on two sites I'm sure.

A sad end, and as mentioned, a missed opportunity for someone with a few quid to creeate something of lasting beauty.

fairmania,
yeah i know, it was more of a rant for abandoned places in general. i have bittersweet feelings about that abandoned show on the history channel too. most locations are known but not right there in the open, a little digging and pretty much anyone can find them. good thing i got into scranton lace a two years ago
