NYU and the Destruction of New York
This Sunday, Peter Carey, Fran Lebowitz, Kevin Baker, Joseph McElroy, and Jefferson Mays will be at McNally Jackson to protest NYU’s Sexton Plan. Says McNally Jackson, "NYU’s expansion plan, as proposed, will erect up to 2.5 million square feet of new building space in the Greenwich Village. In the process, they will destroy three acres of green space. That includes the Sasaki Gardens, the Mercer Street Dog Run, the Key Park Playground and a beautiful grove of trees. It also will require 20 years of continuous construction, without any delay, to begin this August." Join the effort to stop this plan. Refreshments will be served.
