Tonite ! Monday, June 22nd, 6:30 p.m. an Open Forum on NYU: 2031 Plan presented by the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation, Greenwich Village Block Associations, and a dozen other community groups.
I know it doesn’t seem possible that NYU could conceivably be considering expanding. I mean, seriously, can’t they stop now? The University has enacted such dramatic and unwelcome changes on the character of our City and the communities it has planted its flags in over the last few decades. Apparently NYU plans to double THAT rate of expansion over the next 22 years.
According to the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation:
As you may know, NYU is formulating its ‘2031 Plan,’ which is intended to serve as a blueprint for its development over the next 22 years. However, outlines of the plan which NYU has shared with the public thus far indicate the potential for a very large expansion of the university in and around its core facilities in the Village, East Village, and NoHo during that time period —roughly double its rate of expansion over the last several decades.
The Forum will be held at Judson Memorial Church, 55 Washington Sq South @ Thompson Street.
