I used to walk by Nellie Bly's house every day. She started writing for various newspapers when she was 16 years old, and she became famous in the 1880s for pretending to be insane so she would be committed to an insane asylum on Blackwell's Island. (Now called Roosevelt Island. It's just across the river from Manhattan.)

She wanted to expose the cruely with which the patients were treated. Her reports, which were published in the New York World newspaper shocked the city and earned her the nickname "The Intrepid Girl Reporter."

What a cool chick.

I'd start with her Wikipedia entry. You might also want to take a look at the entry for Blackwell's Island. And if you have any other questions, just let me know.
