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.  

But in an unusual twist of NIMBY - Not in my back yard - New York University's own faculty members have voted down the expansion plans.

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