For decades, NYU has dealt with strong opposition from New Yorkers. Whenever they voice their desire to expand their campus and influence throughout the city, a battle ensues and Manhattan residents rise to the occasion to fight both the university and the city government to prevent such changes from occurring. The latest controversy? NYU's 2031 Expansion Plan. Teachers hate it. Community activists despise it. Even NYU students are against it. So this all begs the question, what the heck is it?

East Village Squatters Honored at New Museum

There are many unique tales to tell when it comes to Manhattan real estate and, surprisingly, many of them do not revolve around the construction of a 1,000 plus foot residential skyscraper or commercial enterprises. In fact, much of New York City, especially Manhattan, was shaped, not by a real estate firm, but by the natural skill and hard work of its citizens. Take the Hoovervilles for instance. The makeshift communities that sprung up in Central Park during the Great Depression may no longer be in existence, but they mark a significant chapter in Manhattan’s history. The same can be said for the squatters in the East Village. Their legacy is being honored at The Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space, which opened December 8th.

Developers and Preservationists Square Off in South Village

The concept of a quiet neighborhood may be going the way of the phone booth in New York City. First, Greenwich Village opponents failed to stop New York University’s 2031 Expansion project. Residents and activists alike protested against the proposal but were thwarted by the City Council and the City Planning Commission. Now Greenwich Village’s neighbor, South Village, may be fighting a battle of its own against plans to develop 180 Sixth Avenue.
