A Stunning Drone’s Eye View of the Uninhabited North Brother Island on New York City’s East River

Long Island FAA-certified drone photographer David Erat of DCE IT Services has captured an absolutely stunning overhead view of North Brother Island, an island that sits on the East River between The Bronx and Rikers Island and is uninhabited by humans.

The island was once home Riverside Hospital, a quarantine center that housed victims of smallpox and typhoid, including the infamous Typhoid Mary.

The island is now home to thousands of native birds.
