IS THE SKY THE LIMIT HERE IN MORNINGSIDE HEIGHTS?
WILL OUR FUTURE BE CAST IN CONCRETE?
A recent spate of development threatens to change the face of our historic community with luxury housing. From the new apartments on the grounds of St. John the Divine to the former nurses residence diagonally across the street, to what’s going up at Jewish Theological Seminary and Union Theological Seminary…. our neighborhood is changing …and not for the better.
To say nothing of the “soft sites,” those low buildings, which dot our neighborhood.
To look into these developments, we decided to initiate the Morningside Heights Community Coalition (MHCC). This new organization consists of community groups in Morningside Heights (MSH) and individual coops and tenants throughout the neighborhood who are working together to try and have an impact on these projects.
