The Fashion Institute of Technology is reviving its efforts to bring a little campus flare to W. 27th St. The school would like to devote two-thirds of the block between 7th and 8th Ave. to a sidewalk-level plaza (the "27th St. Commons") and the other one-third to a two-way street with a cul-de-sac. Seems everybody loves the park, but the neighbors aren't too crazy about plans to have the cul-de-sac, which will function as a turnaround for deliveries and the like, in their front yard. Can't anybody find these people some off-campus housing?
