NYU's Plan 2031 Phase Documents

This series of 5 documents establishes NYU's methodical and calculated approach to building on the remaining open space adjacent to its cluster of buildings in Greenwich Village. Not shown are the eager entreaties of downtown developers and neighbors clamoring for NYU construction just 2 subway stops from the heart of the village. The destruction of the children's key park and historic Sasaki Garden will be the first step in launch 20 years--an entire generation--of continuous construction in Greenwich Village. Taking out the children's park is an ominous symbol, perhaps. If NYU gets its way, a child born today in this neighborhood would never know a life without the steady din of construction, the choking cloud of dust, or the ominous loom of the construction crane. They will be NYU's "Jackhammer Generation."
