Per GVSHP: "While the full City Council likely won’t vote until July 25, tomorrow’s vote IS KEY in determining what the entire City Council will do — and it is the City Council which ultimately decides whether or not the NYU plan is approved."
You can find their action plan on the GVSHP website here.
Meanwhile, last night, an array of noted authors and academics gathered at McNally Jackson Books on Prince Street to discuss NYU ... and read from the new book "While We Were Sleeping: NYU and the Destruction of New York" by the NYU Faculty Against the Sexton Plan...
EVG contributor Joann Jovinelly was there ... and she shared a few photos...
Per Joann: "The book belongs on every New Yorker's shelf right alongside E.B. White's 'Here Is New York' and Colson Whitehead's 'The Colossus of New York.'"
It's a print-on-demand edition put out by McNally Jackson. The book is $10 with proceeds going to fund the fight against the plan.
Lebowitz doesn't have anything in the book, but she was there for support. "I don't normally come out for such events, but it's rare that I ever get to be in a room where everyone agrees with me."
Check out Occupy East 4th Street for more on last night.
