We also profoundly thank City Councilmember Corey Johnson, Borough President Gale Brewer, and State Senator Brad Hoylman for their critical support in the naming of the park.

In his statement Commissioner Silver said, “The New York City AIDS Memorial Park at St. Vincent’s Triangle stands at the crossroads of the richly historical West Village. … Read More »
