April 2016 Peskin and BoS name alley for Rose Pak
“Think of it as a concrete reward for a lifetime of deal-making.
The Board of Supervisors has renamed the alley adjacent to Chinese Hospital: It’s now Rose Pak Way. It’s a fitting move. Over the years, Rose has led the charge and the fundraising for the hospital, shaking down half the town in the process.
The renaming was the idea of Supervisor Aaron Peskin, a onetime friend, then foe, then friend again whom Pak helped elect to the Board of Supervisors last year.
The vote came just as news arrived that Rose has successfully completed her kidney treatments in China. Word is she will be returning to the city and resume her various feuds sometime this summer.”
