|Sasaki Garden at Washington Square Village, April 19, 2012 by Hubert J Steed (source)|
The NYC/NYU2031 expansion plans call for the construction of several new skyscrapers in the heart of historic Greenwich Village which will be built on this garden, bordering park strips, the comprehensive children's playgrounds, and on a "super block" south of WSV which will destroy a treasured community garden at LaGuardia Place Corner Garden.
Protests and legal appeals are being made to stop the destruction of these community and NYC necessities & amenities for the planned skyscrapers.
Virtually all of these trees and gardens will be destroyed in the near future, if our courts of law allow the NYC/NYU2031 Plan to proceed.
