    Avondale Highline: Proposed Multifamily @ Taft & Avondale

    Are you sure it's Taft and Avondale? What buildings will be torn down? I know there is new development in 200 block of Avondale that many residents have been attending variance request meetings.

    Day 18 of Government shut down

    I’m waiting in LGA with the construction trying to get in and skeletal personal trying to get through, I am fed up with all this @#$& and want who ever has the power to use that power to get the government up and running again. Its 23 degrees here— I’m worried for any fed gov workers who can’t pay their heating bill.

    Day 18 of Government shut down

    I have resorted to emailing only once a day—— Mostly after news coverage I want to send a searing letter immediately. BTW This whole government shut down fiasco cannot be laid at any ONE persons feet. Now is the time for all of us to call, email and snail mail our Governments reps.

    Day 18 of Government shut down

    I wrote to Cornyn this is what I received Thank you for contacting me regarding the current operations of the federal government. I understand the importance of funding programs that support our national defense and protect our borders, and I appreciate having the benefit of your comments on this important matter. A partial federal government shutdown creates further uncertainty and instability in the economy. I am eager to end the partial shutdown and move ahead with the fiscal and economic reforms our country so urgently needs. In 2018, Congress enacted five appropriations bills that provide funding for 75 percent of the federal government agencies in Fiscal Year 2019, including the Departments of Defense, Energy, Labor, Health and Human Services, among others. However, on December 22, 2018, funding for certain federal agencies lapsed due to disagreements over funding levels for important border security priorities, resulting in a partial federal government shutdown. I share the frustrations of many Texans, and I will continue to work with my colleagues on a path forward to end this partial shutdown. It is my hope that an agreement can be reached quickly to reopen the all federal agencies, while strengthening security at our nation’s borders. I am honored to represent Texas in the United States Senate, and I will keep your views in mind as the appropriations process moves forward. Thank you for taking the time to contact me. Sincerely, JOHN CORNYN United States Senator

    Day 18 of Government shut down

    One of my kids works for NASA in Manhattan. Yes furloughed. Yes one of 800,000. They will get back pay. Those Federal contract workers also not getting to work during government shut down won’t. the number of furloughed not coming to work at JFK, LGA and Newark grows— Traveling with elderly isn’t’t always easy but more difficult with shortages. Just upset and concerned about it. I’ve already been writing/ emailing and voice mailing our senators— guess I was venting
  11. Is still news? it’s becoming real to me. I’ve been in Manhattan since the first day of shut down, thinking it wouldn’t affect me as I fly back to Houston in 2 weeks but TSA ( working with no pay) are dropping out like flies with “sick “ call ins. Noe I ‘m thinking trying to fly out with my 79 year old Mother may be dicey with a Skelton TSA crew that hasn’t been able to feed themselves for a month. i’m doing Daily calls and emails to both senators....... but don’t have a lot of faith in either to influence....anything.
  12. “Correcting an additional 64 stories.....” unbelieveable
  13. Oh my thr 3 closest houses on east side of Crocker were purchased by Baba yoga owners this year.

    The "M" monument at Elgin & Bagby

    COH/PWE probably will begin construction West of the triangle as the handicapped access have already been installed. But maybe you’ correct— only a bus stop is proposed for the triangles far as I know.
