NYU Gets Provincetown Go-Ahead

New, 6 comments

NYU's proposal to demolish and replace 133-139 MacDougal Street but keep the four walls and entry façade of the Provincetown Playhouse was approved by Community Board 2 in a 37-1 vote. According to the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation (and relayed to us via blog Washington Square Park), "speaker after speaker spoke out against NYU’s demolition plans and ONLY NYU and Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer’s office spoke in favor of demolishing the Provincetown Playhouse."
