Rumblings & Bumblings: St. Vinnie's and the Tram

If it's Tuesday and there's development, there'll be Rumblings & Bumblings. As always, the questions below were submitted by actual readers. If you've got an answer, another question, or a sweet, sweet digital pic, drop a line at make something happen in the comments below.

1) West Village: "Rumor going around among residents in surrounding buildings that this St. Vincent's Hospital building (above) at 36 7th Avenue in Greenwich Village completed in the late 80's is about to be taken down and redeveloped." Prime location. Anybody know if the hospital's giving it up?
2) Boerum Hill: "Do you have any idea what is going on on Warren between Smith and Hoyt with that monstrosity on the North Side of the street?"
3) Upper West Side: "Anyone know what's going on at the site of the old Colonial Club, on the southwest corner of Broadway and 72nd Street, and adjacent 3 buildings? It is now totally vacated and covered in a shroud, with some kind of work going on. At one point, Robert Futerman had a brochure on their web site to rent retail space in what was described as a 19 story luxury residential condominium. This is no longer on their site and a search of approved permits indicates work only on the exterior of the exisitng building has been approved."
4) Upper East Side: "Anyone know what this new building is that's going up on East 60th, right behind where the Roosevelt Island tram drops off in Manhattan? Photo attached (see below) - metal scaffolding in the foreground. I'm not sure how high it's going but I may lose a great view of the Queensboro Bridge..."
