CB2 spars with NYU in expansion meeting

A rendering of the proposed site

New York University made little headway with community advocates last night during a Community Board 2 meeting, during which it elaborated on its plans to add six million square feet of campus facilities to Greenwich Village and the surrounding area by 2031, according to the Village Voice. The expansion plan — which includes proposed satellite campuses in Downtown Brooklyn and on Governors Island — has been controversial among community leaders who say that the neighborhood is already overwhelmed by the NYU campus. But school officials say they’ve made an effort to expand outside of the village, and that the proposed facilities are badly needed for the school. [Village Voice]
