While We Were Sleeping is an urgent call to save Greenwich Village from New York University's uncontrolled expansion. Writers and artists make the case against NYU's plans to devour precious acres of green space -- including the spectacular Sasaki Garden, the Key Park children's playground, and a gorgeous grove of oak trees. All this will go ahead if we don't stop it. The price of our inactivity will be twenty years of continuous construction. We will wake up to discover 2.2 million square feet of office space where our Village used to be. Our alarm clock is ringing.
