NYU's "secondary displacement" effect on the East Village

Patrick Hedlund at DNAinfo also covered Monday night's CB3 Zoning Committee meeting in which NYU present their Invasion Expansion 2031 plan...

These points from the meeting are worth noting from his coverage:

The number of students living in the East Village, whether in NYU dormitories or rental apartments, has proved to be the most contentious aspect of the college's increased presence in the neighborhood.

Furthermore, committee members explained, the waves of upperclassmen that often choose to rent apartments in the East Village lead to the "secondary displacement" of longtime area tenants.
