Cinderella Story in Brooklyn? Nine Suitors Vie for Long Island College Hospital

They said that nobody wanted Long Island College Hospital (LICH) in Cobble Hill, so might as well close it up and sell it's real estate to developers.

But after countless marches, letters, petitions and lawsuits by very persistent residents, local officials and unions, SUNY agreed to redesign their Request for Proposals (RFP) with community input, awarding more points for a full service hospital.

Lo and behold: Nine suitors want to put the glass slipper on LICH's dainty little foot -- and four of them are offering a full service hospital as part of their proposal!
