Dos Toros Taqueria Advocates for NYU 2031


Statement of Leo Kremer

Owner, Dos Toros Taqueria

Before the New York City Planning Commission

For the Public Hearing on the New York University Core Project

April 25, 2012


Chair Burden and fellow Commissioners:

I want to express my support for the NYU 2031 Core Expansion Plan. I have owned and operated a local business, Dos Toros Taqueria, in Greenwich Village since 2009. NYU’s students, faculty and staff have been loyal customers of my business since we opened close to it three years ago, and I believe my establishment will continue to benefit from the University’s 2031 expansion plan. NYU contributes tremendously to the economy and energy of Greenwich Village and I believe this plan will only improve the vitality of the area.

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.
