I've copied below the short article in today's NY Post re the press conference. There are also more significant articles in today's spanish newspapers, El Diario and Hoy. Both have prominent pieces appearing on page three. I will forward a link or copy as I get them.
In general, for those of you not attending, I beleive the conference went very well. Quite a large contingent of press, including Fox 5, (although I am not certain anything appeared on their newscast last night). As usual, Norman was terrific in spreading the message; other speakers included Tom Demott, two residents of the area, Cynthia Dotty, a student rep from CU, myself and my daughter, Emily.
Hope to see any many of you as possible at tomorrow nights public hearing.

UNIV. FURY IN W. HARLEM
West Harlem residents, worried they may lose their homes and businesses, say they'll try to block Columbia University's plan to expand into their neighborhood.
"We are on a collision course [between] Columbia and the people who live here. The businesses who are here and have been here for years . . . are all united against Columbia's current plan," said lawyer Norman Siegel, who represents the West Harlem Business Group.
The Department of City Planning will hold a public meeting at PS 195, from 4 to 8 p.m. tomorrow, to discuss an environmental-impact study � one of the first steps for Columbia to move forward with its plan.
The school, in a $5 billion development plan spread out over the next 25 to 30 years, wants to build on a nearly 18-acre plot, which extends from 125th Street to 133rd Street and from Broadway to 12th Avenue.
A school spokeswoman said, "During the last three years, we have purchased over 12 acres and are in discussion with the owners of most of the remaining property." Jennie Leszkiewicz
