Shoring Up a Landmark Ruin on Roosevelt Island

The New York Times City Room blog visits the ruins of the old Smallpox Hospital on Roosevelt Island, a stone’s throw across the water from the southern tip of Manhattan. The ruins will become part of the parkland on the redeveloped historic island. Andy Stone, TPL’s New York City Director comments in the video that the location could become “a fantastic site for performances and a seasonal cafe.” This is an exciting project part of a greater plan being managed by TPL for Southpoint Park. The video provides a glimpse into the history of this site and the possibilities it provides in the future.
