While Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer has done a lot to get New York University’s massive planned expansion pared down, residents say it’s simply not enough because the project retains its massive scale, the New York Press reported. Andrew Berman, executive director of the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation, suggests that the university look to parts of the city that are in need of development rather than expanding in the same neighborhood, which, Berman said, is how other prominent universities have tackled development.

“Paring down the buildings in the NYU plan doesn’t address the fundamental problem, unless NYU develops a long-term strategy for directing its growth outside of the neighborhood,” Berman said.

Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz told the Press he would welcome NYU to the Bronx. “It would be a great asset both for the Bronx and NYU… [NYU should build] a campus in our beautiful borough,” Diaz said. [New York Press]
