Notes
Survey number HABS NJ-891-B
Building/structure dates: 1918 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1982 demolished
Significance: Built under the political patronage of three different mayors, the design of the Jersey City Hospital complex can be divided into two distinct phases, the first low-rise and generally subdued and the second more high-rise and decorative. The same architect was responsible for both manifestations, however. Part of the early, low-scale version, the powerhouse and laundry were representative of the initial stage of important Jersey City architect John T. Rowland's career, and the architectural preferences of two city mayors, Mark Fagan and Otto Wittpenn. Later buildings of the hospital were influenced by the ideas of Mayor Frank Hague.
