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.)
