Susan Sarandon, Tim Robbins chime in on Manhattan hospital’s new plan
Actors Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins weighed in on the medical-tower aspirations of St. Vincent's Hospital Manhattan during a New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission meeting. At issue is the hospital's "hardship-status" application before the commission in support of the institution's $1.6-billion development plan. St. Vincent's has said that it will have to shut its doors if it cannot build a new hospital, representatives said that the hospital has no choice but to build on its current property. The hospital project seeks to demolish five buildings in the Greenwich Village Historic District to permit the construction of a 299-foot-tall medical building and a 233-foot-tall luxury condominium.
