Positive Declaration

New York County - The New York City Planning Commission, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed expansion of the Museum of Modern Art may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The action involves the proposed expansion of the floor area from about 410,000 gross square feet to about 718,299 gross square feet to provide additional space for all Museum functions including new galleries, an expanded education program, an additional theater and a larger restaurant. The project is located between 53rd and 54th streets and Fifth Avenue and Avenue of the Americas in Manhattan.
