Future location of NYU Langone

Future location of NYU Langone

NYU Langone is opening a medical center in Long Island City in about 18 months to meet the healthcare needs of the growing neighborhood.

The hospital system has entered into a 31-year lease where it will move into a facility at 21-21 44th Drive and will offer multi-specialty ambulatory care.

The announcement stems from a deal it entered into with Norvin Healthcare Properties, a developer that caters to health care tenants throughout New York City.

Norvin plans to convert the existing 2-story, 45,000 square foot space into a health care facility.

Norman Livingston, the president of Norvin Healthcare Properties, said the plan is for the center to be open in 12 to 18 months. However, he said, NYU Langone has ultimate control of the plans.

As LIC continues to grow there is a greater need for high-quality health care facilities, Livingston said.

“This new NYU Langone facility in Long Island City will satisfy that need in terms of both location and the comprehensive range of healthcare services that will be offered under one roof,” Livingston added.

The new medical center will be located within a two-block radius of the E, M, 7 and G train lines.

NYU Langone Medical Center did not respond yet with comment.

So if it is a medical site for the new people with money it’s ok, but if it is a planned parenthood it isn’t ? Such a double standard. Guess what, you can go to planned parenthood if you have money too!!

Basically, yes. It is a facility designed to serve the people in the area, not import people who don’t live here. Also, this isn’t going to attract the idiot protesters.

Long Island City teen sentenced in fatal shooting of ‘beloved’ school teacher at Queensbridge Houses in 2020: DA

A Long Island City man on Friday, Jan. 28, was sentenced to 19 years in prison for the 2020 fatal shooting of a public school social studies teacher who was out walking his dog when he was caught in the crossfire during a confrontation between gang rivals in broad daylight, just blocks from his home, according to Queens District Attorney’s office.

Ike Ford, 19, of 12th Street, in Long Island City, pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the first degree before Queens Supreme Court Justice Kenneth Holder. The teacher, George Rosa, 53, was shot in his abdomen by a stray bullet fired by Ford, who was just 17 years old at the time of the shooting but was sentenced as an adult given the severity of the crime, according to Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz.
