Judge blocks much of New York University's planned expansion

A judge has blocked about half of New York University’s plan to build four towers in the school’s Greenwich Village neighborhood. The New York Times reports that the judge's ruling says the city wrongfully agreed to turn over three public parks to the university to enable construction without first obtaining approval from the state legislature. The university contends that the ruling permits it to move forward with its largest building, a one-million-square-foot academic tower. But opponents argue that the ruling should stop the project.
