Weird Wednesday

I'm substituting weird for web this week, any librarians should take note of today's post.

About a month ago I went with some friends to Governor's Island, previously a military fort and recently abandoned army post. It now serves as a New York City park with beautiful views of the harbor and downtown.

We were riding bicycles around the island and then came across this:
An abandoned library previously for the island residents on the army base. How creepy and appropriate for Halloween!
I'd like to know a little bit more about this abandoned library, but internet searches are coming up with very little. Probably it is just an abandoned building like the rest of the buildings on Governor's Island, but it has so much potential for some spooky Halloween tale.

There was an article in the New Yorker in August or September about the island, it's history, and it's future. It was really interesting and should answer some of the questions you have.
