9/11 memorial at Mulry Square

Thanks to the good folks at the GVSHP for keeping us apprised.

This project would involve significant digging, underground construction, and the possible building of a 4-6 story permanent ‘ventilation shaft’ in or around the intersection of Greenwich and 7th Avenues and 11th street. The MTA seems pretty intent on pushing this project through, yet it hasn’t been made clear to the public exactly why it is needed. It is expected to take years to complete, which is bad news for anyone who lives or works in an area that will already be facing 8 years of demolition and construction at St. Vincent’s hospital. Come to this meeting and learn what you can, then voice your concerns.
