Rynn Berry in Methodist Hospital

Rynn Berry, the author of The Vegan Guide to New York City, is in the intensive care unit at Methodist Hospital in Brooklyn, and has been there for over a week. He was running in Prospect Park, and had some sort of attack; he apparently hit his head and lost consciousness. Because he wasn't carrying ID, he was only identified a couple of days ago.

A link to the incident can be found here. I visited him in the hospital tonight; anyone in the NYC area who's interested in either meeting me at the hospital or visiting him there can message me. Because he's in Intensive Care, visiting hours are 24 hours.

R.I.P., Rynn Berry

Today I went to Methodist Hospital in Brooklyn to visit Rynn Berry again; unfortunately he had already passed away. Apparently his family—maybe just his half-brother—had already been there and given authorization to pull the plug.

He will be sorely missed; I had fully expected him to pull through, and have been pretty bummed today at the thought I wouldn't see him ever again.

(I'd like to see a "role models" tag, if that's possible.)
