Just two weeks ago, the small triangular park that sits across from the former St. Vincent's Hospital site was a lot more rough and tumble than it is now. Although the Villager claimed it was close to opening then, things are looking really ready for spectators now, as evidenced in a new group of photos snapped on a recent visit by Field Condition. Although FC notes that the park's centerpiecethe AIDS memorial sculpture designed by Studio a+1is not in place, the park's benches look ready for sittin', its grass looks ready for loungin', and those water fountains look ready for sippin'. In late July, a honcho at Rudin Management, which is overseeing, along with Global Holdings, Inc., the park's redevelopment and reshaping by firm M. Paul Friedberg & Partners, told the Villager that company's just waiting on some final approvals from the city before opening the park, which is presumably what's delaying its opening still.
