   "At the asphalt asterisk formed by the improbable intersection of 7th Avenue, Greenwich Avenue, and West 11th Street, workmen in DayGlo gear dismantle St. Vincent’s Hospital. Ugly brown brick by ugly brown brick, they deconstruct the Brutalist ’70s additions named for dead Catholic men: Coleman, Link, Cronin. The red brick and limestone shells of the Smith and Raskob buildings along West 12th Street remain, sheathed in canary yellow scaffolding. Hollow windows resemble blackened eyes and broken teeth."
