North Brother Island, New York
A small island just near Manhattan, itâs creepy to think that North Brother Island is so close to the modern world. The island, located in the East River, housed a quarantine hospital and base—and is famously where Typhoid Mary was kept at the time. It later housed WWII vets studying under the GI Bill, and even later, drug addicts. The place shut down in the 1960s, and whatâs left behind looks like the perfect setting for season two of American Horror Story.
