Urgent! Toddlers for LICH/Long Island College Hospital

Hello from CORD.  Please read this message from one of our neighbors in Cobble Hill:

"Dear Neighbors,

Please share this announcement from Claire Tuck, a neighbor whose daughter
was born at LICH:

Come and support LICH and LICH park!

Many of us have either had a baby at LICH, plan to have a baby at LICH or
have taken our kids to LICH for medical care. Most if not all of us have
enjoyed LICH park. LICH is now seriously threatened as the State of New
York wants to sell off this property and turn it into a high-rise condo.
This Saturday, April 13 at 10 am come to LICH park (for toddlers) on Henry
St near Amity St.
We will rally in support of LICH and then go on a stroller march to Court
Governor Cuomo can save our hospital - or close it.
Bring signs, your kids and yourself!
We cannot let our neighborhood hospital be turned into a huge condo
Thanks everyone- spread the word to parents.
Please RSVP to so we have a sense of how many people
are coming."

With the "Protect Our Homes" petition, CORD was formed in May, 2007. This petition arose as an overwhelmingly negative response to the coming of the over-sized 360 Smith Street Development at the corner of Smith Street and Second Place (Aka Oliver House; aka 131 Second Place). This petition, which had well over three thousand signatures, led to a new zoning text amendment in summer of 2008.

To: Our Elected Officials, Community Leaders, The MTA:
(MAY, 2007)

We the undersigned Carroll Gardens homeowners and residents, are appalled by the "as of right" ruling which allows owners and developers to erect buildings in our neighborhood with no regard to the impact they will present to our quality of life and the value of our homes........
