Show us the money, NYHQ...

New York Hospital Medical Center of Queens agreed to pay $24,943 a month for the once-wooded lot as part of a three-year lease set to expire at the end of the year.

"Everyone would like to know how this money has been utilized," said Chuck Wade of the Kissena Park Conservancy West. "We don't have any kind of written statement about the receipts and the expenditures."

The advocacy group formed shortly after the public learned of the deal, which permitted the hospital to bulldoze the land into 400 temporary parking spaces while it builds a parking garage.

The deal also allows the hospital to make payments in "services instead of cash.


Park turns into parking lot but where's the 900G?

In an interview with the Daily News yesterday, Queens Parks Commissioner Dorothy Lewandowski could not say how much the hospital has paid to the city over the last three years.

But she detailed a host of upgrades to Kissena Corridor Park that used the hospital's funding.

"In an interview with the Daily News yesterday, Queens Parks Commissioner Dorothy Lewandowski could not say how much the hospital has paid to the city over the last three years."

This is the same Lewandowski whose job as commissioner was the result of violation of the civil rights of numerous minorities who worked for the Parks Department.

She is an offensive moron who doesn't know how much the hospital paid to the city for the last three years, because (A) she really couldn't care less, (B) she is incapable of understanding the deal, anyway.

Will she now come up with a truthful, fact-filled answer? Too busy for frivolous stuff!

No wonder health care
costs the American medical consumer so damn much!

That's why I prefer to use
LIJ Hospital
(the best rated facility in Queens).

The only hospital worse than
NYHQ is Flushing Hospital
(the local immigrant mill)!
