Seaview Hospital, Staten Island

Two of the buildings of the historic Seaview Hospital and Home on Staten Island, NY were recently restored and converted into 104 apartments for senior citizens. The Hospital complex was designed by Raymond Almilrall and built between 1905 and 1938. Many of the buildings are in the Spanish Mission style. In the early 20th century, it was the largest tuberculosis hospital in the United States at a time when fresh air was considered the most effective treatment of "the white plague."
