City officials decicate AIDS Memorial Park in Greenwich Village on World AIDS Day
A special tribute was held in honor of World AIDS Day to the victims who died of the disease in New York City. The AIDS Memorial Park at Saint Vincent’s Triangle in Greenwich Village was dedicated on Thursday. The project was launched in 2011 to remember the men, women and children who have died from AIDS in the five boroughs. The memorial is located across the street from the old Saint Vincent’s Hospital, which was once home to the city’s first and largest AIDS ward.
“It’s so good that you are here, it’s so important that we pay homage and tribute to those we’ve lost, and those who are still fighting,” Broadway performer Lillias White told the crowd.
