[QUOTE=long island leprechaun;2656457]More complete and utter baloney from big D. I live in Greenwich Village and have personally used St Vincent's Hospital for myself and my family. The debate that is going on has absolutely nothing to do with the hospital's patient population, which is far and away NOT poor and indigent, but white and upper middle class. EVERY voluntary hospital in the city serves the poor. Big deal. The argument is over community zoning standards that don't allow buildings to be above a certain height in historic neighborhoods and about construction that will disrupt schools and businesses. The Rudin family along with every other real estate developer in the Village always tries to skirt the zoning restrictions and build skyscrapers. That's what the fight is about, not about whether the hospital should expand (to make more money!!!). You know absolutely nothing about this issue except what you skimmed off some news article in the Post. Good job. Idiot.[/QUOTE]
more typical nonsense from stupid is as stupid does....I guess this proponent was lying...
[QUOTE]"The hospital provides $40 million in care to the indigent every year," one proponent told us. "Robbins dismissed more than 100 people rallying in support of the hospital - low-income, union workers and veterans of the AIDS crisis - as 'those people out there.' [/QUOTE]
of course saranwrap claimed she uses the hospital as a last resort, so why would she care if it is improved??? way to once again show what a moron you are with your garbage....
