The community driven campaign for an AIDS memorial at the former site of St. Vincent’s Hospital took shape in early 2011 following the news of the shuttering of the hospital and the subsequent announcement of redevelopment plans.
Engaged with the Rezoning Process
The community board hosted a series of visioning workshops to gather input from neighborhood stakeholders on the elements of the final design.
Countless people contributed to making the AIDS Memorial a reality. They include scores of neighbors, long time activists, elected officials, and many, many others, who rallied around this cause.
