Quinn Approves NYU Expansion

That which Robert Moses was not allowed to do, Christine Quinn will do : ruin the special social fabric of Greenwich Village. * BREAKING NEWS : New York City Council Votes To Sell Off Public Park Space, Violate Urban Renewal Agreements, Upzone And Subject Residential Area To TWENTY YEARS Of Construction For NYU Expansion Plan (Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation) * "While this action is indeed a bleak statement on city government and our public land use review and approval process, this is not the end. GVSHP and our allies at NYU Faculty Against the Sexton Plan are jointly represented by the law firm of Gibson, Dunn, and Crutcher. We will be pursuing all legal options available to us, including challenging the decision in court. Stay tuned for more news soon," wrote Andrew Berman, the Executive Director of the GVSHP. * More and more, it's looking worse and worse for the effort to save Chelsea Market.

  1. Even Robert Moses would have hated what NYU's trying to do—i.e., cram towers INSIDE the park space in his towers-in-the-park.

    Both Quinn AND Margaret Chin (whom Quinn is hanging out to dry in this disgraceful episode) should be recalled for selling out the Village, whose interests they're supposed to represent.

    1. Quinn left Brad Hoylman out to dry on St. Vincent's. I'm sure she is going to do the same to Corey Johnson on Chelsea Market. This is her pattern. This is how she sets the tone and the example for the next generation of leaders -- this is how she corrupts their view of what public service means.
