Doctors office abandoned hospital Ellis Island


Old water radiator under weathered windows. The well-framed image of the abandoned hospital shows the decayed walls and old-style lighting on each side of the windows. The abandoned hospital from Ellis Island is a great place to photograph texture. Ellis Island, the island of hope to some, consists of numerous historic immigration building and its vast complete of medical buildings. The hospital housed many permeant medical personal. The image above features a typical doctor’s office that was heated by hot water radiators.

The series of Ellis Island images I took during my 1-day access gives that feeling of abandoned and eerie realization of what it might have been to be a part of the medical team.

There are huge medical facilities in various states of disrepair on Ellis Island. Now the Save Ellis Island Foundation, a non-profit created to raise funds to restore the 29 buildings of the historic Ellis Island Hospital complex. It was the group of people for Save Ellis Island that allowed me to have full access to photograph the various building. A big thanks to the wonderful crew there.
