Day 437

Lincoln Medical Center

March 11th, 2013

Here's what the AIA Guide to New York City has to say about this massive brick edifice (which contains the third busiest Level 1 trauma center in the entire country):

The brickwork of this up-to-date health care facility is just too much of a good thing. Of an indescribably strident earth color, it aggressively grabs your attention. Nevertheless, the swirled brick bas-relief on the 149th Street side [oddly reminiscent of Sanitation's District No. 6 broom depot] is a handsome addition to the streetscape.
