Last night the Board of Directors of Saint Vincent's Catholic Medical Center (SVCMC) voted to close their hospital inpatient operations. This saddens many whom have been fighting diligently to keep emergency and vital health care services on the west side on Manhattan. There will be a rally today, Wednesday, April 07, at 11 a.m. outside of St. Vincent’s at 12th Street and 7th Avenue to urge the State not to approve any St. Vincent’s closure plan until there is an appropriate urgent healthcare option for the West Side. We urge you to attend.

We need your help to raise $100,000 in four nights to help the victims of Haiti's catastrophic earthquake. No country in the Western Hemisphere has been battered more than Haiti in the last 500 years—the nearly complete annihilation of its native population over two decades, a brutal slave regime, ongoing foreign military interventions over hundreds of years, brutal dictatorships supported by western powers, blockades of aid and more recently, devastating natural disasters from hurricanes to this latest earthquake.
Enjoy a rare evening of wine tasting with one of America's most prolific and popular comedian/writer/actors Lewis Black at the release of his wine, “Black Red Wine”. Black’s wine is said to be “a compelling high-end, spicy, upfront and robust mix of premium California Napa and Lake Country Cabernet Sauvignon.” Sounds hilarious. Or eh, at least his live performance will be. 100% of the sales will benefit the 52nd Street Project, a not-for-profit organization that matches the kids of Hell's Kitchen with professional theater artists to create original theatre.
