Chair Burden and fellow Commissioners:
As a New York University Alumni and NYC resident I want to express my support for the NYU 2031 Core Expansion Plan.
As a musician who graduated from NYU’s Steinhardt School of Jazz Studies I understand NYU’s need for additional space near the University’s core.
I urge you to support this plan as it is thoughtful, has been responsive to the community’s needs, and is extremely important for both the University and the City. By building on their own property and not extending further into Greenwich Village, creating enhanced and more usable open space, and donating land for a future public school, the NYU plan serves the needs of both the University and the local community.
Thank you for your leadership, and I once again urge you to vote in favor of this plan.
