One such alternative that the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation has long urged N.Y.U. to consider is the Financial District. There, N.Y.U.'s planned development would be contextual and welcome, and would add needed elements to that growing neighborhood, rather than oversaturate and overwhelm, as it would in the Village and surrounding area."
