The Mask of Terror
For eleven years, this mask of terror was what children saw as they were stolen from their homes by a depraved predator known as "The Beast of Jersey".
The Abandoned Leper Colony
Located between the Bronx and Riker's Island, situated in the middle of New York City's East River in an area known as Hell's Gate is North Brother Island. In 1885 if you were sick and contagious, you would be brought to this 20-acre island along with other patients from the five boroughs. In most cases the patients did not come here voluntarily but were forced to do so. It was far enough to stop disease from spreading, leaving those living and dying there feeling isolated. But in a city that was overcrowded and pestilence-stricken it was the best option to keep the populace safe.
