Building of the Day

Lenox Health Greenwich Village

Oct 2 at 1–2pm
30 7th Ave, New York, NY 10011

Original Architect: Albert Ledner, 1964
Renovation Architect: Perkins Eastman, 2015

Originally designed by Albert Ledner as the headquarters of the National Maritime Union and district hiring hall for local maritime trades, this 160,000 sf facility underwent an adaptive reuse to provide three primary medical services: the first freestanding, 24-hour Emergency Department in the New York metropolitan area; a full service Imaging Center featuring digital x-ray, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and ultrasound; and a specialized ambulatory surgery facility focusing on interventional treatments for the sick and elderly. The interior reflects the underlying themes of the original program and design-the sea, ships, and circular shapes.
