AIDS Memorial Park

Bill Rudin AIDS Memorial Park Scandal.

Rumour has it that the AIDS park that will be being built on property that used to house oxygen tanks and other heavy machinery that used to support St. Vincent's Hospital is a replacement park for the Hope Garden in Battery Park City.

Word is that Bill Rudin plans to destroy the Hope Garden, the city's first AIDS memorial park, and that he used the triangle park on Greenwich Avenue across the street from St. Vincent's Hospital, as a bait-and-switch in order to divide the community that opposed the luxury condo conversion plan for St. Vincent's.

If so, then this is all the more reason why it would be unacceptable that New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, the city's highest elected LGBT official, should be in bed with the Rudin Family.
