Community groups protest NYU zoning exemption

The New York City Board of Standards and Appeals approved zoning exemptions that will allow New York University to build its proposed spiritual center at the intersection of Washington Square South, West 3rd Street and Thompson Street. Several community advocacy groups are protesting the move, including the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation, which released a written statement today denouncing the decision. The school does not have a “programmatic need” to justify the construction, according to the historical group, which feels the proposed facility could result in a blight on the community.
