This is the Small Pox Hospital located on Roosevelt Island in Manhattan, New York, United States. It is also referred to as the Renwick Small Pox Hospital and the Maternity and Charity Hospital Training School. These Renwick Ruins are now an N. Y. C. landmark.
Designed in 1854 by architect James Renwick Jr. and opened in 1856 when the area was known as Blackwell’s Island. 100 years later the 100 bed hospital closed and the buildings fell into ruin.
Designed in the Gothic Revival Style the building was three stories, a nine-bay U-shaped structure faced in granite veneer in a random ashlar pattern over load-bearing rubble masonry.
There is an ongoing $4.5 million stabilizing project to help revive the buildings as they are deteriorating quickly and in 2007 the North Wing section collapsed. Once this is completed it will be open to the public.

Hiked 20 miles on this abandoned line. Rumors of modernizing the line and reopening it are starting to surface so I wanted to get out there to capture it in its current state.

This type experiments are made by Cream 5 from Cambridge, USA. While playing with different floating forms, lines, swooshes, lights the letters seem to move like a chellyfish in the sea, slowly in the flow of the waves. Every single letter is designed with it’s own colour, character and style. Enjoy this letter art!

Kellie has Nigerian roots and we plan to incorporate her culture. I’m from a small town and want our wedding to reflect The South, as I know and love it
(not the pop-culture, Duck Dynasty south that’s often depicted, and subsequently, scoffed at).
She’s working, but I’m in graduate school. What we’ve found is that, we:
young, people of color, still working on getting established,
are grossly underrepresented in the wedding blogosphere.
Quick: Google “wedding hairstyles,” something Kellie is having difficulty deciding on nowadays.
(Or, click: this.)
None of the pictures look like her. Not one.
But we do get married, right?
So, we created our own space! (via #27 - 4 Things We’ve Learned At the Halfway Point | Chapel 2 Chapel)
