NYU and Met Foods: The Right Decision

NYU made the right call to keep Met Foods in its current location on 2nd Avenue. (Of course, this is after NYU doubled the rent, threatened to triple the rent, and generally forced a great-big CB3 runaround) NYU should make an effort to preserve low-cost food options in the neighborhood for the sake of the city’s residents, and for its own students – cost of living is a huge burden on the quality of student life, and increasing those costs only increases the expense of running the school as a whole.  NYU should also take the step to re-invest its substantial endowment into community development more generally, instead of raising money via international corporate powers.
