The Festival of Ideas is fast approaching. Among the many downtown organizations taking part in the unprecedented event is the NYU School of Public Service, which is facilitating an interactive conversation about issues important to Lower Manhattan’s many diverse communities.
There will be a “land-use education forum” at six this evening at the Center for Architecture, 536 Laguardia Place. The event is being sponsored by Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer, Councilmember Margaret Chin and Community Board 2. According to a news release from Stringer’s office, the forum is tied to the land use process New York University will be required to go through before its massive expansion (our phrase, not Stringer’s) can go forward.
