Open Space: Actual vs. According to NYU 2031

In the Draft Environmental Impact Statement, NYU states that there are .58 acres of open space on both of the superblocks. To arrive at this number, NYU is counting only the Mercer Street Playground in the Washington Square Village superblock and the Coles Plaza and Playground at the Silver Towers block as open space. This completely ignores the variety of passive and active use open space throughout the blocks, which totals nearly 8 acres. (Source: "The TRUTH About Open Space and The NYU 2031 Plan", GVSHP).
