Curbed has been documenting the year-long demolition of Roosevelt Island’s 900,000-square foot Goldwater Hospital, which recently wrapped up to make way for Cornell’s New York tech campus. On Tuesday, the site published a video chronicling the destruction of the 1939 building from start-to-finish.

The first phase of construction is slated to finish in 2017, which will bring an energy net-zero academic building, a residential hall for staff and students, and an executive center.
