The architecturally prominent National Maritime Building was originally built in 1964 as the headquarters for the National Maritime Union but soon after was converted to medical use until closing in 2008. North Shore-LIJ Health System, the third largest non-profit health care provider in the country, is now substantially rehabilitating the property into the only free-standing emergency care facility of its kind in New York City. Development Strategies completed a market analysis for the rehab, finding a severe service gap for emergency care, with the adjacent Greenwich Village—as well as greater Manhattan—underserved for comprehensive medical services.
