NYU Unveils Latest — Public Meeting Monday, March 21st

Crain’s NY Business, today: NYU reveals latest updates to 2031 Plan

From Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation:

NYU is still seeking to add up to 2.2 million square feet of space — the equivalent of the Empire State Building — to the blocks just below Washington Square Park, and another 1 to 1.5 million square feet of space in the surrounding neighborhood. They are seeking major zoning changes to eliminate open space preservation requirements. They are seeking to take over public land currently used as park and recreational space. And they are seeking a massive zoning changes for nine blocks south and east of Washington Square, changing the zoning from residential to commercial.

* NYU 2031 Plan (WSP area is the “Core.”)

NYU will present the plans to the public at a meeting on Monday, March 21, 6:30 p.m.
Location: Grace Church School Auditorium, 86 Fourth Avenue (at 11th Street).

  1. Mayor Bloomberg,

    Central park is a sanctuary for people and its wildlife.
    Since you are a caring person, after year of failing to have any of the Central Park staff heed our pleas, I turn to you in hopes that once and for all, this serious situation of use of rodenticides that caused so many death during the holocaust, be removed.

    Through the years, trash is accumulated all over the park, open, in the floor by foot paths, in open bins by the restaurants, with no improvement of the conditions.
    Instead of addressing the trash situation, your staff has chosen to use a rodenticide Zyklon-B that was used in AUSCHWITZ http://www.holocaust-history.org/auschwitz

    At least, in Washington Square, out of concern for people’s health, their park staff has listened to people’s pleas, and is removing rodenticide baiting stations. This has been an a source of complaints world-wide. http://www.palemale.com/february92011l.html
