New York University has planned massive expansion into Greenwich Village, a move which threatens the Sasaki Garden, the Key Park children’s playground and many other local treasures. Over 40 groups are fighting NYU’s expansion plan saying that it threatens not only the Village but also NYU itself. We are joined by Robert E. Riccobono, a member of NYU Faculty against the Sexton Plan and Andrew Berman, Executive Director of the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation. (This is the first half of the interview.)
Producer/director Gloria Messer and host/producer Heather Wokusch; segment shot at Manhattan Neighborhood Network studios in New York.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
