Why is this area obscured in Google Maps?

I was looking for Southampton College, Long Island University, which I found in Google Maps fine in the map view. However, when I switched to the satellite view, the area has been deliberately obscured.

I wonder why this is - it's apparent that there has been quite a bit of heavy construction in the area when you compare the edges just outside the obscured area with the 1994 aerial image (black and white) which is available via TerraServer.
