Plum Island

Plum Island, off the NE fork at the east end of Long Island, has been the home of a secure US Government disease laboratory for decades. Photos were few and far for years.  It is's policy to limit photos of currently active facilities to those released publically but when the US Government recently advertised the entire island for sale they released the photographs below.
