Greenwich Village Mandate: St. Vincent’s Revival

What does it take for the public to make a new park and memorial a reality? Join us for an onsite exploration of how community activism, city support, and the tough realities of New York City real estate brought the just-opened St. Vincent’s Triangle Park and accompanying AIDS Memorial into being. We’ll uncover the stories, memories, and social movements embedded in the area, from the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, to the former St. Vincent’s Hospital, which played a central role in the AIDS crisis, became an informal shrine to the victims of the September 11th attacks, and has been converted into luxury condos.
