After servicing the Downtown Manhattan Community for 160 years, St. Vincent’s Hospital is now closed except for some outpatient services. I still go there for my wound care clinic, and passed by the old emergency room where I took the photos posted here. This is the shrine that spontaneously appeared in front of the boarded up ambulance bay doors. An emergency medical technician hangs around manning one of the inactive ambulances.
