Just tonight—only a few minutes ago—I realized I could see the old Jersey City Medical Center out of the back window in my apartment.
It was built under the Hague administration between 1930 and 1941.
That seems old until I remember the house I'm buying is at least 32 years older. Maybe even more. I have reason to suspect the 1898 date is based on a misreading of the width of the house on an old map.
