Rally to Oppose NYU's Mega Development Plan & Overturning of Zoning— Saturday

 DEVELOPMENT THE SIZE OF THE EMPIRE STATE BUILDING SPREAD OUT WITHIN 3 BLOCKS

WE NEED A HUGE TURNOUT, PLEASE JOIN! THE COMMUNITY MUST BE UNITED!

LET OUR POLITICAL OFFICIALS KNOW NYU DOES NOT VOTE & ELECT THEM, WE DO.

THIS IS NOT A ZONING APPLICATION, THIS IS BEHIND THE SCENES POLITICS AT ITS WORST.

Message From Assemblymember Deborah Glick:

"Please join me, Community Board 2, and CAAN as we rally on February 11th to protect our Village Community and send a message that continued mega development is out of place in the historic confines of Greenwich Village.

While NYU has been an important institution in the Village for the last several decades, its continued growth and expansion has had serious impacts on our neighborhood- from the loss of historic buildings to shadows cast over our limited parkland. Now additional density and long term construction projects place additional threats on our beloved Village.

Join us Saturday February 11th, 2012 at Judson Memorial Church (55 Washington Square South between Sullivan and Thompson Streets) at 12PM to let our voices be heard. We hope you can attend and please share this message with your neighbors."

Martin Tessler, Co-Chair CAAN2031:

"Never in the history of NYC has a long established historic community been requested to give up its residential character and directed to become a commercial-retail complex benefiting a private institution whose global dreams of expansion undermine what Greenwich Village stands for and represents to the City and the world."
