Cornerspotted: J. Marion Sims' Women's Hospital on 109th St.

New, 3 comments

New commentor mto-023 nailed this week's Cornerspotter (as did commentor Evgenii Tirskikh). The grand building that is no more was once the Women's Hospital on 109th Street near Amsterdam Avenue—141 West 109th Street to be exact. The hospital was helmed by Dr. J. Marion Sims who developed a very particular medical procedure for women that, well, we'll let Ephemeral New York explain. The lot is now home to Cathedral Parkway Towers.
