Groups Call for New Javits Environmental Review

On May 5, the Municipal Art Society, the Hell's Kitchen Neighborhood Association, and several West Side residents filed a legal challenge in the New York State Supreme Court requesting that the Empire State Development Corporation (ESDC) conduct a new review of the environmental impact the new expansion plan for the Javits Center will have on the surrounding neighborhood, in compliance with the state's Environmental Quality Review Act. The ESDC has not conducted a review since its initial assessment in 2004, when the previous plan included the Jets stadium. According to The New York Times, a hearing is scheduled for May 15.
