Stuyvesant Polyclinic

For Thursday Doors hoisted by Dan Antion (his doors today Newton Waltham leftovers).

I have a long history with Stuyvesant Polyclinic. We went there when we couldn’t afford health insurance. In 1993 a young doctor there was the one who finally correctly diagnosed my infection with Lyme disease. It is a lovely building. Some history: Ottendorfer Public Library and Stuyvesant Polyclinic Hospital – Wikipedia

    What a very special door to a special building. I’m so glad you were able to get a right diagnosis. Besides, the building is incredible. I love the color and character of it.

      Thanks Brenda. If I had been correctly diagnosed right away it would not have become a lifelong problem. I told them I had been bitten but that the time they relied on an inadequate blood test for diagnosis,

    I love the terracotta facings that buildings of that generation had. They are beautifully done, have survived remarkably well, and give a nice look to the street.

    I love your angled shots, they bring out so much more of the building and overall experience. Thank you.

    What beautiful details on this building, Sherry, and from your experience, I can see why it would be dear to your heart…even if it’s weren’t attractive!
