Update: June 29th: City Council Hearing on NYU 2031

The City Council will hold its only hearing on NYU 2031 on Friday, June 29th at 9:30 a.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall.


PLEASE ask people to write and call City Councilmembers urging them to vote no – see and, and please send an e-mail to Public Advocate Bill DeBlasio thanking him for his rep on the City Planning Commission’s vote AGAINST the NYU plan –


One action that all of us, faculty, can and must take to convince the City Council to block the expansion is to call and/or write to the trio of Council Members who will no doubt prove to be the most influential in the political process going forward:

Councilwoman Rosie Mendez
The New York City Council

A final name to add to our must-call list is that of Public Advocate Bill De Blasio:
