A Nightime Walk Around Roosevelt Island's Creepy and Spooky Renwick Ruins Smallpox Hospital -- Booooooo



A reader sent in this link to a You Tube Video showing a nighttime walk inside the chain linked fence around Roosevelt Island's Renwick Ruins Smallpox Hospital . The Renwick Ruins are located at Southpoint Park which is closed after dark so you really are not supposed to be there at night much less inside the fence, yet people still tempt fate.

This is what the inside of the Renwick Ruins looks like during the day.



And at night when it glows green.

that was a crreeeepy noise wasn't it? Might have been the echo of crying sobs from prior patients.

The true name for this building is the Smallpox Hospital. Please correct.
