Sasaki & Washington Square Village Gardens

The NYC/NYU2031 expansion plans call for the construction of several new skyscrapers in the heart of historic Greenwich Village which will be built on this garden, bordering park strips, the comprehensive children's playgrounds. On a "super block" south of WSV, the NYC/NYU 2031 Plan will also destroy a treasured community garden at LaGuardia Place Corner Gardens and gardens and a dog run on Bleecker and Mercer streets.

Protests and legal appeals are being made to stop the destruction of these community and NYC necessities & amenities for the planned skyscrapers. Virtually all of these trees and gardens will be destroyed in the near future, if our courts of law allow the NYC/NYU2031 Plan to proceed.

This Fall 2013, a New York State Judge ruled that the Park Strips on LaGuardia Place & Mercer Street cannot be destroyed without New York State Parks approval. NYU appeals are pending.

Please run the slideshow button on the upper right corner of http://www.pbase.com/hjsteed/photo_shoot_120419 to see conveniently what is planned to be destroyed. If you run the slideshow with a soundtrack of "Where have all the flowers gone?" it might break your heart.
