High tech campus

If you like the new Cooper Union building (and you do) then you should be happy.
With Cornell set to open a high-tech campus on Roosevelt Island in a few years (with a stopover in Google HQ) good old Chuck Schumer is worried that the geeks won't be able to handle the tram or the F train.
Before Cornell can open its new high-tech campus on Roosevelt Island, it's getting rent free space in Google's NYC headquarters for five years.
We stopped by Mayor Bloomberg's press conference at NYU-Poly in Downtown Brooklyn, across from the site of the new school at 370 Jay Street, for all the back patting, self-congratulations and interesting details.
Mayor Bloomberg's plan to bring more high-tech applied sciences to the city keeps moving forward and NYU, hot off of scaling back its NYU 2031 plans, is the big winner. Brooklyn is the new Manhattan.
NYU is hoping to add to its Downtown Brooklyn holdings by taking over an MTA building at 370 Jay Street.
And NYU inches closer to completely re-imagining its Washington Square South superblocks.
The man whose donation to the Upstate Ivy will help fun a new high-tech campus on Roosevelt Island has spent the past quarter-century living frugally and giving away his fortune.
Ithaca may be gorges, but Roosevelt Island is a lot closer to the city! Thanks to a $350 million donation it looks like Cornell has won the competition to build a new high-tech NYC campus.
Also, Stanford wasn't used to NYC-style negotiations.
Just last month Mayor Bloomberg, whose made this project one of his third-term babies, told people that, "Stanford is desperate to do it—I’m not exaggerating." Apparently they weren't that desperate.
And then there were four. Though seven schools eventually submitted proposals for the high-tech college that Mayor Bloomberg is keen to throw cash at, hizzoner says he has already ruled out three of them.
