New York University announced a plan in April to expand their campus by more than six million square feet, a plan that NYU's neighbors categorically rejected. This week, Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer joined the neighborhood's Community Board 2 in protesting the expansion project, which includes plans to overtake green areas and a dog run in the superblocks south of Washington Square park.

In this week's Arts File, Kerry Nolan talks to architect and Director of City College's graduate urban design program Michael Sorkin, as well as NYU's Vice President of Planning and Design Lori Mazor about the proposed changes to the neighborhood's architecture.
