New York, NY (Nov. 14, 2011) – On Monday, Nov. 14, 2011, at 2 p.m., activists, who are protesting Rudin Management Company’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) application for the property of St. Vincent’s Hospital, will visit the office of Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer.
DATE : Monday, November 14, 2011
TIME : 2 p.m.
PLACE : 1 Centre Street, 19th Floor New York, NY 10007
Rudin Management Company’s ULURP application is now pending before President Stringer.
“When St. Vincent’s closed, the Lower West Side was left no hospital : zero hospital beds,” said Louis Flores. “This compares with 2,206 hospital beds in the Upper West Side, 4,064 hospital beds in the Upper East Side, and 3,101 hospital beds in the Lower East Side. How is this responsible city planning ?”
Two months ago, The New York Post reported that the Manhattan District Attorney was investigating whether hospital executives intentionally let St. Vincent’s fail, so that Rudin Management Company could buy the hospital’s real estate on the cheap. In spite of the cloud of the fraud investigation, Rudin’s ULURP application is still in the review process.
