From the Daily News:
The shuttered Peninsula Hospital building has caught the eye of a nonprofit group that wants to transform it into housing for veterans and senior citizens.
But Rockaway residents, who haven’t given up hope the hospital will reopen as another medical facility, are wary of the plan.
Kim Atkins, CEO of V.I.P. Housing and Services, said the vacant property on Rockaway Beach Blvd. is “like a gift that fell from the sky.”
Atkins said she would like to create independent living for seniors at the site, along with an adult day care program and transitional housing for returning veterans.
