Spring - Washington Square Village Sasaki Gardens & Landscape

As the fate of the NYC/NYU 2031 Plan lingers in courts of law - and the trees, bushes, flowers and wildlife in the area continue to die in preparation for their total destruction to accommodate new NYU administrative, academic, & commercial buildings - will these real life images of spring in Washington Square Village parks, gardens and playgrounds be forever lost?

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, and on a "super block" south of WSV which will also destroy a treasured community garden at LaGuardia Place Corner Garden.

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.

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.
