Carter Horsley's Review of The Octagon

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"One of New York City’s greatest landmarks, the Octagon was designed by Alexander Jackson Davis in 1841 as the centerpiece of the New York Pauper Lunatic Asylum on Blackwell’s Island, subsequently called Welfare Island and known now as Roosevelt Island.  It was the first municipal lunatic asylum in the United States.

In 1893, the institution’s patients were moved to Ward’s Island, further north on the East River, and it became Metropolitan Hospital, which moved to First Avenue and 97th Street in East Harlem in 1953." Read Carter's Full Review
