Jinx Projects

Urban underground exploration group, Jinx, travelled to North Brother Island to explore the now uninhabited site of the former Riverside Hospital where Typhoid Mary was incarcerated. The island is a nesting ground for Blue 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.
