The Jinx Project
Urban exploration group, Jinx, travelled to North Brother Island to explore this uninhabited site of the former Riverside Hospital where Typhoid Mary was incarcerated. The island is a nesting ground for a species of Herons. Situated off of Hunts Point and near to Rikers Island, North Brother Island is a source of fascination to urban explorers because of the difficulty reaching it through the treacherous currents of the East River. Video was produced by Howard Silver for the show, Gotham TV that aired on MetroChannel.
