Testifying on the St. Vincent’s Redevelopment

On March 6, 2012, State Assembly Member Deborah Glick and I jointly submitted testimony to the New York City Council Land Use Committee opposing approval of the Rudin Management Company’s (Rudin) application for the redevelopment of the St. Vincent’s Hospital campus.  Our testimony echoed many of CB2’s concerns.  As you may know, the City Council voted to approve the project, but with modifications that address many of the objections we raised and that were underscored by CB2 throughout its exhaustive public review process.

I would like to thank CB2 Chair Brad Hoylman and all the members of Board for the incredible time, care and effort they put into the review process and which was reflected in the Board’s powerful resolution on this application.
