In late January the guard post at the top of the stairs in the Kimmel Center was eliminated.
But now, only a short month later, the guard is back because of the recent protest by Take Back NYU.
The NYU Department of Public Safety has reinstated the guard at Kimmel -- as well as an additional guard on the 12th floor of Bobst Library -- in order to increase security after the protests.
"These stop-gap measures were taken out of prudence and caution following ... [the] events at Kimmel," said Jules Martin, NYU's vice president of Public Safety. [NYU Washington Square News]
Just a few weeks after the NYU students refused to get out of the Kimmel Center cafeteria, Marnie Stern, Ra Ra Riot, A Place To Bury Strangers and Apache Beat shared a bill at a concert in the same building. Here are pictures of two of the bands that played the show last night (3/5)....
