Celebrity Opposition

New, 26 comments

Is the opposition to NYU's expansion fueled by a desire to save what's left of the bohemian Village or is it more about ending Bloombergian development? In the last few weeks, dozens of Village celebrities tapped into their star power to raise money to fight the 2031 expansion, and one professor leading the fight sees a direct connection to Bloomberg's impending departure. "I actually think the outpouring is motivated, wittingly or not, by a sense that enough is enough development-wise in New York City. The Bloomberg years are behind us now. It's important for people to understand this fight." [NYMag; previously]
