Yetta Kurland - Presenting Petitions to Rudin Family to Block Condo Conversion of St. Vincent's
Community activist Yetta Kurland presented a stack of over 7,500 signatures on a petition to a representative of the Rudin development family. The petition demands that the Rudin Family must be blocked from undertaking a luxury condominium conversion of the former site of St. Vincent's Hospital.
In her presentation, Ms. Kurland explained the history of a prior deal that gave the Rudin Family use of a hardship exemption, but, which Ms. Kurland said, no longer applies.
As William Rudin salivates over the condo conversion deal, Jane Jacobs is turning in her grave. Meanwhile, Brad Hoylman is counting on the Rudin family to donate to his future political campaign the same way that the Rudin family has donated to Christine Quinn's mayoral campaign.
