At NYUFASP book launch, Fran Lebowitz slammed City Council over NYU Expansion Plans.

Fran Lebowitz denounced New York City Council's tacit approval of the controversial neighborhood destruction that would result from the zone-busting Sexton Plan to radically expand New York University.

At 1:55, Ms. Lebowitz speaks about the zone-busting history of NYU on the south side of Washington Square Park. She questions why doesn't City Council answer to the demands of its citizens.

We have a mayor we don't deserve, we have a City Council we don't deserve, and now we have a neighborhood we don't deserve.

The purpose of her speech was the book launch of 'While We Were Sleeping : NYU and the Destruction of New York' at McNally Jackson bookstore in SoHo. Please visit the Stand Up 4 NYC website.
