Locals want three pieces of Greenwich Village land transferred from the Department of the Transportation to the Parks Department, in the hope that they can keep it from falling into NYU's clutches. The university is considering including the Mercer Playground, LaGuardia Park, and the Mercer-Houston Dog Run in its expansion plans in exchange for a new green space next to the current Mercer Playground. The neighbors are skeptical! But this is at least their fourth attempt to get the land transferred to the Parks Department, so there's probably skepticism on all sides. [NYDN]
