Mark Ruffalo condemns NYU’s Sexton Plan: “That decision must be overturned”

by Julia Marsh

Avengers” star Mark Ruffalo has a warning for NYU: You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry.

The actor and West Villager, who is a big green activist off-screen and a big green Hulk on-screen, is leading the charge to the state’s highest court to overturn the approval of the university’s $6 billion expansion plan saying it robs the neighborhood of parks.

“As a longtime advocate of our green spaces, I find it alarming that these public parks, which Villagers have been enjoying for decades, can just be handed over to a private corporation for its own financial gain.

“That decision must be overturned,” he seethes in a statement supporting an appeal of a suit brought by 20 Greenwich Village activists to block the plan.
