Seaview Hospital was a tuberculosis sanatorium constructed “between 1905 and 1938 and was the largest and most costly municipal facility for the treatment of tuberculosis of its date in the United States” (wikipedia). The nurses’ residence pictured here was constructed by the PWA.
The hospital was eventually abandoned and spent many years in a state of ruin. Many of the facilities were eventually restored as the Sea View Hospital Rehabilitation Center and the nurses’ residence was turned into a senior housing facility known as Park Lane at Sea View. However, the Living New Deal recently received word that the facilities have fallen into ruin.
