About the event:
The Renwick Ruin was originally built in 1856 — on the southern end of Roosevelt Island — as part of a series of prisons and hospitals constructed on the island during that time. Designed by architect James Renwick Jr as our nation’s first hospital dedicated to the treatment of smallpox — the remnant structure is breathtaking in its abandonment, and stands as our city’s only landmarked ruin. As the ruin continues to slowly deteriorate, efforts to stabilize the structure and increase public access highlight the importance of preserving this rare piece of New York City History.
