Convenient to North Shore University Hospital
Posted Jan 22, 2017
A very dear family member was in the ICU at North Shore University Hospital whose condition we learn after arrival is terminal. The New York people I met made an unfortunate trip into a much more pleasant experience, and I thank them, especially one kind man who because I had the courtesy of holding the door at Starbucks for someone coming out and for this gentleman to go in and let him in line in front of me, bought me my coffee. This man made my day with just a kind gesture that he did not need to do, he simply wanted to. We often hear about all the bad things that happen in the news and discourtesies that some people experience so I thought I would share this story about one kind man and the good people of New York City. My cousin in ICU has always loved New York and its people and she would have been very pleased for her Canadian cousin.
The hotel was 1.9 miles walking distance or a $9.50 cab ride, both of which were reasonable on a daily basis. Starbucks was approximately 3 blocks away which is great if you are appreciative of their coffee. The neighborhood was a very safe area with some very nice homes along each of the 3 different routes that one could walk. Pond Hill Road is a good long hike to come up while the other streets have more gradual inclines, to and from the hospital.
