Notes
Survey number HABS NY-6340-A
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N412).
Significance: An early 20th century curtain-wall building, part of a larger hospital complex, designed to house a psychiatric treatment clinic for both in-and out- patients. Reflects the movement in the USA away from complete segregation of mental patients and towards inclusion of such patients as one part within a general hospital. Originally known as The Payne Whitney Clinic. Closely modeled after the Phipps Clinic at Johns Hopkins, the Payne Whitney Clinic was designed to provide intensive individual therapy in conjunction with teaching and research. The residential character of the interior reinforced the commitment to provide individualized treatment rather than group custodial care. The building has always been used by the Payne Whitney Clinic. The building will be demolished in 1994 because it no longer meets the need of the Clinic.
