RUDIN-ST. VINCENT'S: THE MOMENT OF TRUTH

The closure of St. Vincent's Hospital and the sale of its properties to the Rudin organization working with North Shore-LIJ Hospital present new challenges for the Village and for PVHD. PVHD continues its focus on preserving the unique character of the Village. We urge you to join us in working to ensure that any development on the St. Vincent's site makes the Village a better place for those who live, work and visit there.

The Rudin organization and North Shore-LIJ have put forward proposals representing the largest construction project in the Village, and perhaps in any New York City landmark district, in memory. This proposal calls for:

  • Construction of the previously proposed Rudin
    organization residential project on the St. Vincent's campus east of Seventh Avenue, including demolition
    of four buildings and construction of a residential development exceeding 600,000 square feet and
    rising to a height of over 200 feet.
  • The creation of a "Comprehensive Care" center
    through the preservation and adaptive reuse of the Curran/O'Toole building, which was previously
    threatened with demolition.
  • The use of the Triangle primarily for publicly accessible open space

Community Board 2 is holding a series of important hearings regarding the Rudin organization/North Shore-LIJ proposal. Attend and voice your concerns.
