flickr: Deserted Roosevelt Island Structures

The above image links to two flickr photo sets of buildings abandoned on Roosevelt Island prior to their demolition. The first being Sacred Heart a Catholic Church and second the old Central Nurses' Residence that sat where Riverwalk (465 and 475 Main) now stands. [Correction made].

  1. Riverwalk is 465 and 475 Main.575 is the northern end of Island House.

  2. Any idea where the church was?

  3. Sacred Heart was in the vicinity of the current FDNY Special Operations Command firehouse near the Gardens. I am posting a map to this post now.
