When Rivington House Wouldn’t Clean its Garbage Mess, a Neighbor Stepped In
A Good Samaritan took responsibility where a multimillion-dollar hospital system would not.
As previously reported, the outside of Rivington House – future home of Mount Sinai’s future Behavioral Health facility – essentially devolved into decrepitude with the accumulation of trash at the doorstep. Untouched for days on end.
But one Lower East Sider took matters into his own hands – literally – and swept up the mess. The neighbor saw the story on Bowery Boogie and brought broom and dustpan to 45 Rivington Street.
I saw a @boweryboogie article about how Mt. Sinai is ignoring Rivington House and the trash is a problem for the residents and businesses around it.
