Capstone Study in the News
A Captone study by a team of NYU Wagner students concerning the proposed Sing Sing Historic Prison Museum drew front-page attention in the Westchester weekly section of the New York Times on May 20, 2007. The article, written by Kate Stone Lombardi, reported that the main findings of the study were presented at a community meeting on May 8 by Ossining Mayor William R. Hanauer. The Capstone team's economic analysis found that a museum, if approved for construction, would be "a strong tourist attraction with real economic benefits for the Village of Ossining, the Hudson Valley, and New York State."
The Capstone program is a rigorous part of the core curriculum of the Master�s Program at NYU Wagner. It provides students with both a critical learning experience and an opportunity to work in a team over the course of an academic year to perform a vital public service.
