Everyone's been to the Immigration Museum on Ellis Island for school field trips and vacations. But did you know that the south side of the island features a 29 building hospital complex that has been completely abandoned for nearly 60 years? A rare glimpse into what remains, and how it can be saved.

I really like how you point out the historic value in these - there's so much information lost when buildings fall apart!

(Also, while I was reading this, my boyfriend looked over and asked "What game is that?")
