    On an Island Under Vines, New York City Officials See a Future Park

    It has been 70 years since North Brother Island, a 20-acre dollop of land in the East River, was used to quarantine New York City residents suffering from the great contagions of their day, like tuberculosis, scarlet fever and cholera. The hospital, which closed in the 1940s, was later used to house World War II veterans, then as a treatment center for drug addicts until 1963.

    Tenacious vines, falling tree limbs and weather have since ravaged the two dozen buildings on the island, including the Tuberculosis Pavilion, the Nurse’s House, a church, a morgue and a coal house. Facades gape open. Copper-clad dormers droop. Trees emerge from third-story windows.
    But on Wednesday, in an era highlighted by reinvention of the city’s forgotten infrastructure (think the High Line and Governors Island), three members of the City Council toured the island under spitting skies to see whether North Brother could be recast as public space.

    Open lands belong to the people. Much too often the politicians who work for the Citizens take the Autocrat facade and restrict access to what is rightfully ours. Done to create barriers that require permission to incur a fee. For What !
