June 5th: The WSJ on NYU 2031

The day before the CPC announced its vote of 12:1 in favor of NYU 2031, the Wall Street Journal published "NYU Tries to Move Ahead With Expansion." The interactive graphic used in the article is misleading and the reporter does not discuss the fact that NYU wants to take public land in order to achieve its development goals. Here's an excerpt from the article:
The construction will take two decades to carry out and will unquestionably create at least some disruption for students, faculty members and Village residents. Yet it will barely bring NYU—which is unique in that it doesn't have a campus and has thus faced decades of space constraints—in line with its top-flight peers.

The entire article can be read at (Hat tip: Washington Square Village Tenants Association.)
