4. Seaview Hospital
Developed across the street from the aforementioned Staten Island Farm Colony, The Seaview Hospital opened its doors in 1913.
Like many tuberculosis hospitals in the 20th century, the grounds and buildings were designed with an “open air” concept in correlation with the popular belief that fresh air and sunlight were the best cures for infectious diseases. At one point in time, the hospital served as the largest tuberculosis sanitarium in the country.
Today, the Seaview Hospital site is partially occupied, having been renovated and repurposed. It is in line to be renovated as a mixed-used, health and wellness-focused development.
