Plant & Scrymser Pavilion for Private Patients: New York City Individual Landmark
The hospital’s original design consisted of nine marble-clad pavilions with a central domed pavilion set back from 113th Street by a small courtyard. Its symmetrical Renaissance style bears much resemblance to the Luxembourg Palace in Paris. Due to lack of funds, some pavilions were simplified and not completed until much later. In the mid 20th century, alterations included the demolition of two pavilions along Amsterdam Avenue and removal of the central dome.
