In 1887, journalist Nellie Bly posed as a mentally ill, homeless woman in order to expose conditions at the Blackwell's Island asylum in New York City. Her descriptions of the neglect and abuse women residents endured shocked readers, prompted improvements in the treatment of the mentally ill, and remain a landmark in the history of investigative journalism.
