Low-Impact Building Makes Big Impact in Favor of the Environment

Walk into the new home of CUNY Law in Long Island City, and you might not immediately be able to tell that this curved, glass-and-steel building is about as environmentally friendly as they come.

The Law School's building at 2 Court Square is LEED Gold certified. That's one level higher than the Silver certification that CUNY's central office now requires all new campus buildings to have.
