On the 10th anniversary of 9/11, a large American flag — with this small note attached — was hung on the wall outside the former St. Vincent’s Hospital emergency room on Seventh Ave. near W. 12th St. There was also a poster nearby with the former St. Vincent’s logo and the message, “Although We Are Gone, the Family of St. Vincent’s Will Never Forget: 9/11/01.”
