After a student protest and subsequent squabbling, the NY1 channel ran its story on the fate of Floridita restaurant, a locally-owned business that the Manhattanville expansion may displace.

Both current CC student Andrew Lyubarsky and CU public affairs, who have been battling over the story for the past couple of weeks, made an appearance in the piece.

Lyubarsky is demanding that Columbia either respect Floridita’s lease or promise to forge a relocation deal that is approved by the restaurant’s owner. CU public affairs claimed now is too early to start negotiating.
