|Entry to the North Brother Island|
Since 1963 the North Brother Island located between Queens and the Bronx has shut it's doors to the public. A previous detailed review that's on the projects tab, focused at the history of the Island along with future projects and plans to reopen despite the horrific events that took place until closed down by corruption, inhability. The Island with shut doors and visitors only by environmental organizations, hidden by trees and almost collapsed structures could hardly attract the eye of the locals which barely know the story of it.
On a recent trip not on the Island but off the coast in the Bronx and specific on 149 East Street till 1 Oak Point Avenue where North Brother Island sites in the Middle of the East River and closer to the Bronx, a short walking distance from the subway and the 6 train gets you to 1 Oak Point Avenue and from there with a ferry for 5-10 minutes

My sojourn in Bronx was a first good contact with mixed feelings and i am set for the next on board experience to the Island anxious to find out more. Stay tuned!.
