(DNAINFO) Danielle Tcholakian — Opponents of New York University’s expansion in Greenwich Village are still fighting, despite having lost any chance of stopping or even delaying the project.
Anti-NYU activists lost all legal recourse earlier this year when the state’s highest court ruled in favor of the school, greenlighting NYU’s plan to construct new academic space, a theater and athletic facilities and student and faculty housing across four new buildings.
Still, the activists plan to hold a rally on Sept. 1 in Washington Square Park and have apparently roped in students and faculty from two nearby universities, Cooper Union and theNew School.
The goal of the rally is unclear, but its target is apparently “the corporate university.”
