The Renwick Ruins, located on Roosevelt Island in New York, were previously a smallpox hospital and a maternity and charity hospital training school. The Ruins are on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places and is a New York City Landmark.
The abandoned neo-gothic building fell into disrepair and became ruins in the 1970s. In 2007, a section of the building collapsed, adding urgency to ongoing preservation plans.
The work performed by Lepore included deconstruction, salvage, stabilization, and reconstruction of fallen or bowing walls.
