Sleek hospital plan roils New York City
AP/New York Times, February 12, 2008
St. Vincent's Hospital in Greenwich Village neighborhood of New York City is seeking a sleek new upgrade. The project would tear down the facility, replacing it with a high-rise that would dwarf many buildings in the neighborhood. The 159-year-old Catholic hospital calls the deal its best hope for safeguarding its own health and that of its patients. The plan, however, has drawn considerable opposition from residents of Greenwich Village.
