When it opened in 1913, Staten Island's Sea View Hospital was celebrated as the "largest and finest hospital ever built" for tuberculosis patients, and by a city official as "vast, ingenious, practical, convenient, sanitary, and beautiful." In the mid-1940's, Sea View contributed to a series of medical breakthroughs in developing streptomycin, an antibiotic effective in the treatment and ultimate curing of tuberculosis. Streptomycin was so effective in healing patients that by 1961, the main hospital was all but empty.
