The original Quarantine was established in 1799 on the Northeastern shore of Staten Island - in the area that would come to be known as Tompkinsville. It was a 30 acre site.

A footnote in this book cites an article "The Old Quarantine. Its Destruction and the Causes Which Led to It" by Dr. F. Hollick found in Proceedings of the Natural Science Association of Staten Island, Special No. 16 ( October 1893): pp.64-67.
