Bombshell Revelations as NYU Lawsuit Goes Before Judge Tuesday — PLEASE ATTEND

The lawsuit by GVSHP, NYU faculty, and dozens of community groups and individuals seeking to overturn the city’s approval of NYU’s massive expansion plan will be heard in court tomorrow, Tuesday, February 26th. 

The hearing follows closely on the heels of the bombshell revelations in affidavits submitted by former Parks Commissioner Henry Stern affirming that the public land given away by the City to NYU as part of the deal was improperly disposed of, always functioned as public park land, and was only prevented from being officially mapped as NYC parkland by NYU’s long-standing objections.  Assemblymember Deborah Glick, now a co-plaintiff in the lawsuit, also submitted a powerful affidavit.  Read coverage in the Wall Street Journal HERE.


  • Join us in court TOMORROW, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 26th at 111 Centre Street (Franklin/White Streets), rm. 574 (map HERE) at 11:15 am, and show Justice Donna Mills how strong the opposition is to the NYU plan!  Bring photo ID.
