Rudin Family Demolish Chapel St. Vincent's Hospital

The attached photograph shows that Rudin Management Company is now demolishing the former chapel at St. Vincent's Hospital.  

Please meditate or pray, as is your faith custom, for guidance on how to persuade our elected officials to finally set right the misguided and irresponsible Rudin luxury condo conversion of St. Vincent's.  

Following are e-mails by Jim Fouratt, one of the St. Vincent's Hospital activists, who took the photograph :

Blood Condo owners flip at a profit with out ever moving in. WHile we worry about life and death health issues .. shame on Quinn

Was out walking with my dog Mr. Butter when I came upon this willful destruction of the St Vincent's Hospital chapel. It was particularly poignant as I thought of how many times this non-believer sat in the chapel while waiting at the height of the AIDS pandemic for a friend or lover to die upstairs. And now ..  where so many memories and where I knew I could  sickness and in grief is being destroyed so blood condos canb be built for the super rich .  Particularly poignant now post -sandy it would have been the only lower west side hospital with a trauma 1 emergency room ab;e to handle  a pandemic crisis if it was still standing .. but no the politicians ..particularity Mayor Wannabe, Christine Quinn-Billionsberg  and  State Senator Tom Duane who represent this District .. stood by and with their silence and lack of political will let this hospital die and this chapel be desecrated, SHAME

ps from Suzannah B. Troy 

Norman Siegel and I have have a meeting with Christine Quinn and staff at City Hall.
A must read!
Talking points from the meeting which include a demand for a Trauma Level 1 hospital and a RAPE Crisis Center (rapes are up and under reported!  Quinn no feminist and anti-rape activist!)

Where is the prosecution of St Vincent's Crooks huh Christine Quinn this is your district! Shame on Cy Vance as well.  (He also has not prosecuted the 911 Tech mega scandalas requested by John Liu -- almost half a year ago!
