New York University administrators are planning to expand its campus by two million square feet when they build four high-rises on two university-owned blocks in Greenwich Village. The towers would be anywhere from 162 feet to 300 feet.

WBAI's Rebecca Myles speaks to New York University faculty member, Mark Crispin Miller, who is a professor of Media Studies.
