Big turnout for NYU mega-dorm/Post Office air rights hearing
About 50 people joined GVSHP and neighbors of the NYU Mega-dorm under construction at 110 East 12th Street at the Board of Standards and Appeals (BSA) this past Tuesday to oppose the transfer of air rights from the Post Office which makes the project 55% larger than normally allowed. Special thanks to City Councilmember Rosie Mendez, who came to testify before the BSA in person against the air rights transfer. Thanks also to Borough President Scott Stringer, Congressman Jerrold Nadler, State Senator Tom Duane, and Assemblymember Deborah Glick, who sent representatives to give strong testimony against the air rights transfer, and City Council Zoning Subcommittee Chair Tony Avella, who had written the BSA to argue against the transfer.
