West Harlem residents will have a chance to voice their opinions Monday night on a new plan to preserve the neighborhood in the face of Columbia University's impending $7 billion expansion.
"This is aimed at making sure the existing character of the neighborhood is preserved in the long term," said Eric Pugatch, a spokesman for Stringer, who will present the plan at 6:30 tonight at the Community Board 9 office on 125th Street. "The borough president supports Columbia's expansion, but we want to make sure the community is not overrun."
