Lincoln Medical Center

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.
