Inside the Abandoned Buildings of Ellis Island's South Side

New, 2 comments

Photographic looks at the not-at-all touristy and more than a little creepy south side of Ellis Island are rare. But now its abandoned buildings are up for a Partners in Preservation award (and no, we're not playing favorites), so the buildings are putting their creepiness on full display in a bid for funds. Scouting New York has many photos of everything from an old recreation building to the General Hospital to the autopsy theater, aka all the parts of Ellis Island that would have made that school field trip way more interesting. It would cost $350 million to restore the island's 29 unrestored buildings.
