To never look away. And never, never,
to forget.”

Val Dickerson spoke and a plaque was unveiled to the memory of the residents and workers, the neighborhood, every ally, media, elected reps, and all organizations that stepped up to welcome and preserve this state-of-the-art HIV/AIDS nursing home facility.

We miss our former neighbors and are sorry we could not bring them back to their home and retain a nursing facility sorely needed in this community. This brings our efforts as Neighbors to Save Rivington House to a close. We thank all of those who helped in this fight to retain the building, the public’s building, as a health care facility, in perpetuity, as the deed promised.

The Sara Roosevelt Park Community Coalition welcomes Mount Sinai’s Behavioral Health Center as our new neighborhood partners.
