From Curbed: "In a 6-4 vote, the Landmarks Preservation Commission has approved the hardship application put forth by St. Vincent's Hospital to demolish the O'Toole Building in Greenwich Village. The razing of the loved/hated 'Overbite Building' is part of the St. Vincent's/Rudin Management extremely controversial redevelopment proposal for the hospital, which sits in the protected Greenwich Village Historic District. St. Vincent's had argued that the O'Toole spot is the only one that makes sense for its new 30ish story medical tower."
