Ellis Island abandoned psychiatric hospital

Exterior entrance to one of the buildings used in the hospital at Ellis Island. The portraits painted on the wall was by French artist JR and depicts life at the world-famous immigration facility and hospital. it is unclear as to why the balcony was completely caged in wire mesh. Possible a secured building to prevent the escape of immigrants refused entry due to medical reasons? If you know, please add it to the comments below.
