North Brother Island, NY

A freaky place if there ever was one

Freaky places to visit (or that you can't visit!) are always interesting, and here's one I have never heard of until now: North Brother Island in New York is an abandoned plot of land consisting of 22 acres. Nobody is allowed to go there, which is probably a good thing because they might get scared enough to have a heart attack and die out on the island.

The abandoned island is filled with crumbling buildings, kelp-covered structures and overgrown sidewalks. The buildings are damaged, many with grafiti, but the freakiest place has to be the abandoned hospital. Mammals don't even want to live on the island; it's mostly inhabited by birds.

What freaky places have you run across lately?
