WALL STREET JOURNAL --Higher Ed Goes Downtown
January 27, 2014
Lower Manhattan, the rapidly changing swath of land at the island's southern tip, is developing a new reputation—as the city's college town.
In the one square mile south of Chambers Street, the higher-education sector now maintains over 2 million square feet of space, a jump of nearly 1 million square feet since 2006, according to a report being released on Tuesday by the Alliance for Downtown New York, the area's business-improvement district.
