Mr. Mayor, Call The Meeting
This petition had 82 supporters
Thank you for your PROMISE to invite China Vanke to meet and consider returning our beloved Rivington House, as requested by Councilmember Chin. We believe in your persuasive powers as NYC Mayor! And we must ALL stand with our elders. I urge you to call the meeting and show them they can do the right thing for our community.
Here are the facts:
1) There is ONLY ONE nursing home left in our community (Gouverneur), with a 5 year waiting list and only accepting patients from within the hospital.
2) Rivington House had 250 beds, and the public put over $70 million to turn it into a nursing home. It was supposed to remain for this purpose.
3) We NEED a nursing home, NOT luxury housing! We are part of this fight for those in our community who are ill, disabled, or elderly and who need or will need a place to go for help IN THEIR COMMUNITY when they cannot stay at home.
