Notes
Survey number HABS NY-5698-B
Building/structure dates: 1930 initial construction
Significance: St. Vincent's Hospital, which includes this building, was founded in 1849 by the Sisters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul. It is the third oldest and first Catholic, hospital in the city. The Great Depression, beginning in 1929, brought with it the need for an expanded role for St. Vincent's. As more and more people were in need of free medical service, the construction of the new Lowenstein Center in 1930 helped to fill and important void in city health care. This building is also a contributing member of the 65 block Greenwich Village Historic District.
