NEW YORK CITY—It has been a winter of discontent for the Community United to Protect Theodore Roosevelt Park. And Tuesday morning the American Museum of Natural History got one step closer to its $383 million Gilder Center made glorious summer by an appellate court. On Feb. 5, 2019, the court denied Community United’s motion to stop the construction on AMNH’s expansion project pending the appeal of the Supreme Court’s Dec. 10, 2018 decision. The latest appellate ruling vacated the interim relief—the temporary restraining order issued by appellate judge Judith J. Gische on Dec. 18, 2018. The TRO had halted some of the museum’s construction activities which would adversely affect green spaces in Theodore Roosevelt Park.
