NYU Saves Food

New, 6 comments

It's probably not on the list of Top 10 NYU Controversies, but the school's long and drawn out lease negotiations with the East Village's Met Foodmarket have ended positively. The low-cost supermarket on Second Avenue and 6th Street, which older neighborhood folks have relied on for years, will keep on doing its thing in an NYU-owned building. NYU is using the occasion to trumpet those neighborhood guidelines thingies they announced earlier this year. A spokesperson, said, "We are grateful to the elected officials who helped to keep the negotiations on track, and we are hopeful that this will be seen as another step forward in abiding by the planning principles that were agreed to last year."
