St. Vincent's Hospital activist bird-dogs billionaire Bill Rudin over controversial luxury condo conversion plan.
Artist and political commentator Suzannah B. Troy confronts Bill Rudin on West 12th Street. Community anger towards Mr. Rudin has inspired many protests, including a sustained protest and vigil outside the sales office of the new luxury condos. Mr. Rudin has ruthlessly ignored the community’s need for a full-service hospital. Mr. Rudin paid pennies on the dollar to buy St. Vincent’s real estate, and Mr. Rudin now stands to sell luxury condos and townhouses that, once constructed, are expected to have a combined fair-market value of over $1 billion.

Health Petition : Mayor Michael Bloomberg : Stop the Rudin Luxury Condo Conversion Plan
Sign Our Petition ! The Rudin Luxury Condo Conversion Plan will set a dangerous public health precedent. City politicians would be saying that a top 1% real estate developer can make hundreds of millions of dollars in private profit by converting the charitable public real estate buildings of the former St. Vincent's Hospital, whilst the 99% have no replacement Level One Trauma Center or Full-Service Hospital. If Rudin's Condo Plan is approved, Mayor Bloomberg would be saying that it is O.K. for an entire section of New York City to have no full-service hospital. How can this be a responsible public health care policy ? Mayor Bloomberg needs to stop the Rudin Condo Plan for St. Vincent's Hospital until a full-service hospital is created.
Ganked all her secrets you fleabag hotel
And you've stolen her nerves as well
Shanked all her dreams and you tanked schemes
Go take your toboggan to hell
She's thinkin' 'bout it
A prescription to Timbuctoo
She won't have it all
She's dyin' for it
To erase all her thoughts of you
Killed her ambitions you
Sank all her hope
Now she's traded her CDs for dope
Cut off her nerves and you
tangled her heart strings
Go take your toboggan to hell
Crocodile tears rollin out of your lying eye socket
I wanna soc you but I love you so
(There is more but it wasn't recorded in this clip)<
Check out image -- Mike Bloomberg’s face on the cop that pepper sprayed all the students sitting down protesting in California !!!!!!
Sign the petition! Please sign! Our Nanny mayor is concerned with 2nd hand smoke, fat but when comes to not having a hospital Mike Bloomberg’s message is drop dead!
Check out Suzannahartist’s YouTube from Yesterday -- also addresses Rudin Luxury Condo
Repeat after me: The Rudin Family are the Mother Teresa of Real Estate!
Question: If the Rudin Family are the Mother Teresa of Real Estate why don’t they help get a full service hospital.
From The New York Times obituary : ''Ms. Truden, who died on Nov. 7 at 68 in Kingston, N.Y., finally did win her stardom, if fleetingly, by writing and recording a song about the life she had known in the world of sex films. Produced under her stage name, Andrea True, the song, More, More, More, is now widely considered a classic of the disco genre, recognizable to many for the lyric “How do you like it?” repeated over a simple beat.''

Petition To Make Megyn Kelly To Eat Pepper Spray
Yesterday, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly told Bill O’Reilly that police pepper spray, like the spray used on the UC Davis student protestors, is “a food product, essentially,” reported Nick Douglas. Now, Mr. Douglas is petitioning Ms. Kelly to eat or drink a full dose of pepper spray and broadcast it on Fox News.

Under the caption of, "Police loving violence against the students and citizens," AnonOps Communications blog posted this observations about how private CUNY security and NYPD are increasingly using violence against peaceful protesters :
Occupy Cuny and allied protestors who gathered Monday at Baruch College to express opposition to CUNY tuition hikes, unfair labor practices, and privatization were met with an increasingly familiar response: violent suppression of their basic right to dissent. Protestors were barred from attending a so-called "public" meeting of the school's trustees and ordered to disperse. CUNY security and NYPD moved in with nightsticks drawn, turning a nonviolent protest into a chaotic melee.

Police pepper spraying and arresting students at UC Davis
During peacefully Occupy Movement, police came in to tear down tents and proceeded to arrest students who stood in their way. Once students peacefully demanded the release of the arrested, a police officer unnecessarily pepper sprays the students to open a path for the rest of the officers. The officer who sprayed the students was UC Davis Police Lieutenant John Pike, firstname.lastname@example.org - (530) 752-3989. Students are also asking that everybody sign a petition, calling for the resignation of UC Davis Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi for her "failure to protect UC Davis student's First Amendment right to assemble, or even their physical safety."

The New York Time April 1, 2008 nytimes Bill Rudin quoted...." the lack of a world class hospital will not only jeoparidize the west side population but also threaten NY’s competitiveness as a city!”
Photo of protestors by condo offices -- Bill Rudin wants to be called a Civil Leader than lead the call for a full service hospital click the link above and call Rudin management and ask him to lead the call for a full service hospital.
So when did Rudin sell his soul, the safety of The People out and the City along with Bloomberg and Amanda the People’s Burden.http://suzannahbtroy.blogspot.com/2011/11/bill-rudin-rewind-kiss-of-death-queens.html
First in the AM before I roll out of bed write this....
I post this on the walk over to 120 West 12 the Street and do LGBT post from Iphone...
In a separate action, started by LGBT civil rights activist Alan Bounville, the community is being asked to take part in a phone zap against Rudin Management Company. Mr. Bounville is asking that everybody contact John Gilbert, the COO of Rudin Management Group by calling 1-212-407-2400 and by e-mailing : firstname.lastname@example.org
"Please join the masses and flood Rudin Management Company's phone and email this week so they are aware of the growing wave of public disgust with them stealing a hospital from the community!" urged Mr. Bounville.
These two posts from my Ipad with blogger App.

Suzannah B. Troy NYC Round-up From Rudin Blood Condos to NYC Pensions, Mike Legacy In the Dumpster to Howard Rubenstein Mr. Fix It Busy Man
http://suzannahbtroy.blogspot.com/2011/11/call-bill-rudin-and-john-gilbert-ask.html Bill Rudin and The Rudin Family Blood Condos....they are billionaires and not rich enough so they need to have uber high priced luxury condos starting at 1 million dollars and Bill Rudin has amnesia about being quoted in The NY Times stating we need a hospital for the W. Village and to be a leading City in the world arena not a direct quote but he has his paid staff walk by and tell me how wonderful he is and that he is not responsible for a hospital or even owes us one. The community disagrees with Bill Rudin.
Rudin management tele. number is being handed out and folks are asking if Bill Rudin is a civil leader why isn’t he leading the call for a full service hospital in the W. Village?
I don’t have time to cut and paste links from today’s newspapers -- so if you want some updates on politics from Albany to City Hall plus dirt go here.

Shame on Bill Rudin and his high priced suits and even his high priced public relations team!
Bill Rudin has billions but apparently that is not enough money for him so he has to make more billions with condos putting greed and stupidity ahead of the safety of the community.
A news reporter hoping to upload her interviews to NPR came and spent a lot of time interviewing us and she was the first to show up.
We appreciate and are grateful to everyone that did who up and the NYPD providing a barricade
Join us stand with us in protest....loan us 20 minutes or 2 hours, stand with us in the middle of the block on 12th Street on the south side of the Street between 6th Avenue and 7th Avenue. There is a police barricade set up for us. We are standing closer to 144 W 12th Street because of construction. Please come stand anytime you can!!! Thank you!
Bloomberg’s administration is infamous for a reckless Tsunami of Development on “old” New York’s infrastructure and the infrastructures like hospitals, open fire houses, no cuts to NYPD when in fact Bloomberg is cutting NYPD, paras in schools, etc.
We have more poverty and homelessness and what does Bill Rudin, a civic’s leader wannabe doing to help provide a FULL service hospital? Nothing.
Socialite, mega-millionaire, Amanda the People’s Burden the worst City Planner ever!!!!!!!

Andrea Swalec broke the news story for DNAinfo that Rudin was opening sales office this Monday! http://www.dnainfo.com/20111102/greenwich-village-soho/sales-office-for-st-vincents-condos-open-monday Expect a protest Monday am -- starting small....with the hope to build to send a message to Bill Rudin and all the players that put greed before safety.
Kudos for DNAinfo for reporting the news mainstream media isn’t.
The goal is to build the number of protests and the hours...who knows down the road maybe Occupy Wall Street will join us...one can only hope....
We need a hospital....this is again greed over the good of the community with the Rudin Family jumping on the NYU bandwagon putting greed before the safety and best interests of the community.
Rewind to the illegal air sale I fought by the USPS to NYU at 120 East 12th Street to NYU and USPS never notified the State of the air sale of historic St. Ann’s from 1847 which survived all these years everything but NYU’s need and greed to build yet another zone busting mega-dorm and now their pals The Rudin with voice box Mitchell Moss think they can steam roll over the needs of the community yet again and the community does know this is life or death far more dangerous than 2nd hand smoke but the Bloomberg administration terms 1 -3 continue to push a reckless Tsunami of Greed and Stupidity refusing to put safety 1st.
Amanda the People’s Burden is truly the worst city planner in NYC’s history giving illegal zone busting green lights to her wealthy pals including NYU, Cooper Union and supporting eminent domain abuse from Columbia University to the property in Brooklyn now owned by a Russian Billionaire.
Welcome to Bloomberg’s hideous “new” New York built on “old” NY’s infrastructure.
How do you push population growth and uber the top development and shutter hospitals around NYC, close fire houses and cut FDNY, NYPD, EMS and hundreds of paras in NYC school system mayor Bloomberg, Christine Quinn who acts as his deputy mayor and gets kick backs from development as well as socialite mega-millionaire Amanda Burden the Cathie Black of City Planning -- answer how do you green light all this reckless development on old NY’s infrastructure for your pals.
Christine Quinn’s answer is clearly found in whom donates to her mayoral run...and that is greedy corrupt entities involved in real estate as well as Wall Street Bail Out money.
Why Bill Rudin, the commissioner from the State Health Dept , mayor Bloomberg as well as Christine Quinn seem unable to comprehend pushing development without infrastructures including a full service hospital is a very dangerous game.
I understand Quinn has received generous campaign donations from Rudin so like Bloomberg she will get the same message Mike Bloomberg got via the voting booths.

Google Blogger YouTube Censorship: Is This China or NYC - how Activists critical of Bloomberg and Christine Quinn are Banned by Suzannah Troy Artist
Read the press release above to learn how yet another New York Political Activist has been removed from Google’s blogger and or YouTubeland yet again!
Write Press@Google.com asap and demand they return Louis Flores’s blogs!!! Ask all friends and enemies to write Press@Google.com as well. Is this China or the USA?
Louis’s last post was pointing out Christine Quinn was on reminding the People Christine Quinn signed off on the requirement that protestors need a permit for a crowd over 50 people.
Click on the link above and you will read this...
This morning’s censorship followed just hours after Mr. Flores published a controversial blog post on the Christine Quinn Sold Out blog, which traced back to New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn the problems that the #OccupyWallStreet social movement have been having with protest permits. Note that the Christine Quinn Sold Out blog and the controversial post ( http://christine-quinn-sold-out.blogspot.com/2011/10/occupywallstreet-protest-permits.html) have also been temporarily removed/deäctivated by Google’s Blogger service.
Note this Christine Quinn blog was removed but has been returned but No Third Term and other blogs listed in the press release above remain removed. Below a sample of Louis Flores work...
Thanks again to famed Civil Rights lawyer, Louis Flores, Queens Crap and everyone that took the time to write Google on my behalf to demand my YouTube channel highly critical of Bloomberg be restored.
http://suzannahbtroy.blogspot.com/2009/09/how-youtube-banned-me-and-my-work-was.html The last YouTube I has posted before being removed was highly critical of David Yassky for aiding and abetting Bloomberg in pushing through an illegal third term denying voters a referendum.
Note: Gary Tilzer’s blog True News from Change was removed as well -- I remember it was on a Sunday and Louis Flores and I worked our guts out all day to get his blog returned to him.
