The vegetation in southwest section of the Sasaki Garden is missing (see above) on page 11 of the powerpoint presentation that NYU made at the Community Board 2 Zoning & Land Use Hearing on January 9th.
The actual state of the southwest section of the garden is show above. The omission of vegetation certainly supports the university's claim that green space would increase with its campus expansion plan in the superblocks below Washington Square Park. Also, note the language used to describe the graphic -- "interim condition" -- implying a temporary state.
