From 9/11 to this?

And on that note, what about the closures of all the hospitals in Queens, home of the Father's Day fire that injured 60 people and killed three firemen.

Without excellent response by FDNY and superb assistance from Fire Departments from the surrounding states and Long Island, Astoria, Queens would have been ashes and the hospitals overflowing with the injured and the morgues with the dead.

I will have something more to say about this shortly too, and it won't be anonymous.

The closings of St. John's and Mary Immaculate hospitals were supposedly done to help prop up St. Vincent's Hospital, somebody has said, but I don't have enough information to independently verify that. And I almost agree with you about Speaker Quinn, however, at the rate that Bloombo Dicto is going (shutting down firehouses, laying off NYPD, letting hospitals go bankrupt), the city might flatline before his ill-fated, karmically-doomed 3rd term comes to an end....

Correction: St. Vincent's sold MIH and St. John's to Wyckoff in order to try to stop the bleeding. It didn't work and now all three are gone.

Gov't can bail out banks and developers, but not hospitals. Shows you what the priorities are.
