Seeing The AIDS Memorial Quilt in New York in 2014
Photos: See The AIDS Quilt On Governors Island
Gothamist (August 12, 2014)
On Monday and Tuesday of last week, a portion of the AIDS Memorial Quilt was on display in New York for the first time in over 10 years.
I posted about this chance to see the AIDS Quilt and then made a point of seeing it myself.
I last saw the AIDS Quilt twenty years ago.
There isn’t much to say other than this section of the AIDS Quilt was displayed on Governors Island in New York. Governors Island is beautiful and it’s been turned into a wonderful park area.
That said, seeing the Quilt this way made it feel like a Plague Island. Or an Anti-Contagion Zone of a kind.
Twenty or Twenty-five years ago, this section of the Aids Memorial Quilt would have been on display in Central Park.
I have no doubt.
