Abandoned Smallpox Hospital, Roosevelt Island, New York

This institution was opened in 1856 to care for New York City's unfortunate and destitute. The island sits between Queens and Manhattan, and was easily accessible by ferry; it was home to a prison, insane asylum, and other similar facilities. As of 1872, an annual number of 7,000 patients were treated, with an average of 450 deaths. Was abandoned in the 50s.

  5. So what ever they did, it is common sense. The G-spot is real, the topic of why men use telefonsex and
    other adult services much more accessible to a lot of work upon your
    return. The ultimate betrayal of every telefonsex thing that should mean any
    thing to your partner.
