Greenpoint Hospital (former) – Brooklyn NY

Description

The former Greenpoint Hospital was constructed during the 1930s with the assistance of federal Public Works Administration funds (Docket No. 9063). According to New Deal New York, “The Public Works Administration helped to finance the construction of a new out-patient building and nurses’ homes at this facility.”

The City of New York ceased operations at Greenpoint Hospital in 1982, and the Greenpoint Renaissance Enterprise Corporation took over the site.
