Update from Neighbors to Save Rivington House

Council Member Margaret Chin and Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer  have continued to advocate for the return of Rivington House and a meeting with the Mayor and the Buyers: Slate Property Group, Adam America and China Vanke.

From Neighbors to Save Rivington House (N2SaveRh):

Much gratitude and congratulations to Council Member Margaret Chin and Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer who have continued to work diligently on the return of Rivington House.

In a letter to Alicia Glen Deputy Mayor for Housing & Economic Development on the future of Rivington House they noted::

1) the state of a continued lack of transparency re: Rivington House – even in the aftermath of a “flawed process that paved the way for the closure sale and now potential conversion”- and to “demand a clear and transparent process for the future of this site”.

2) on current zoning that makes it inappropriate for Rivington House to be converted to luxury condos.

3) a request to halt all construction, exploration etc until the buyers meet with the local elected officials and community to resolve all issues. 

Thank you to our electeds for fighting on behalf of those who cannot: our aging neighbors and those who need 24/7 skilled care whose partners, friends and children are waging a desperate battle to care for their beloveds against impossible odds.
