"As the epidemic has endured and broadened, AIDS organizations have found themselves -- unexpectedly, even unwillingly -- in the business of developing real estate. They have built what amounts to a $300 million citywide AIDS infrastructure to house, serve and treat people with the disease. Decrepit structures have been infused with a new purpose, giving the epidemic a three-dimensional presence in the cityscape. There are apartment buildings and nursing homes for women and men with AIDS who are homeless or poor, treatment centers and clinics and heavy-duty kitchens with 80-gallon soup kettles." --David Dunlap, New York Times, 1997
