New York City AIDS Memorial Approved


  Some good news from Greenwich Village: After much bickering, a design for the future New York City AIDS Memorial at St. Vincent's Hospital Park has finally been approved. It still sickens me that the hospital where so many lost loved ones to the insidious disease is being converted to a luxury condo complex (Rosie O'Donnell is a charter resident!), but at least we have something. See more about the design HERE.

I'm really not sure why the conversion to condos is so distasteful to you. As bad as the AIDS epidemic was/is, its no less traumatic to loved ones to loose someone to cancer, car wrecks, and the like. People die in hospitals all over the world every day. Once a property becomes obsolete, why not do something useful with it?

Everyone's entitled to his own opinion. But on top of that, it worries me that there is no hospital on the lower west side of Manhattan -- and all that worrying makes me nervous.

reminds me of the amoco (now BP) station at north/lasalle in chicago.

Reminds me of the people suffering from AIDS

I hope I am not offending anyone, but it looks like a bus shelter, and without the green vines in the dead of winter it will look even more like a bus shelter. It does not convey the sense of "memorial."

Is it supposed to look like a high-heel shoe?

It looks like a giant pointer for a Ouija board. Unless you can actually contact loved ones lost to AIDS through this "memorial" it just seems like a poor design choice.
