Protest scheduled at Cabrini this afternoon

Several people have told us that there is a protest scheduled for 2 p.m. today at Cabrini Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation on East Fifth Street and Avenue B. The facility is expected to close this summer to make way for a development that new owner Ben Shaoul is planning for the space.

Cabrini officials told family members of residents last week that they would have to make other arrangements for their loved ones once the home closes.

Per a commenter yesterday:

My mom is at Cabrini... She has been there for three years.

This is a loving and caring Facility.

The seniors at Cabrini need your help...

Come help us keep the doors of this caring facility open..

We need you to come out and be hearts with us...

We are meting tomorrow March 14th at 2and 6PM..

Please come join us .. We need your help....

Please help our loving seniors

One tipster said that City Councilwoman Rosie Mendez will be present this afternoon.
