In the days since the official closing of St. Vincent's hospital, locals have transformed the shuttered doors into a shrine to the former West Village institution. The doors are adorned with poetry, notes, drawings, and even a dedication to "the crooks complicit in the murder of this hospital and the politicians who turned their backs." Many just recall their time spent in St. Vincent's. The hospital officially closed on April 30th after being open for 160 years.
