It's been a while since the milling and grinding awoke residents, or kept them up, who live on the borders of Stuy Town and Peter Cooper Village, with an appropriate smiling at the camera councilman Dan Garodnick and his two "assistants" for the photo, our own TA president Susan and Dan's helper, Howie. Remarkably for some, the work is not finished, with repaving "expected" to begin this month, the 22nd of September. That's about a month since the first phase was done, and a month for everyone to skip and hop to avoid the damaged roadways done by the milling and grinding. Of course, near the end of September we are promised smooth roads that will delight all our residents. Until then, just suck it up.
We were told that 200,000 dollars came from our councilman for this complex, one of his final gifts as councilman as he is headed for better (?) things in the future (having sold his soul to the REBNY, but that's another issue). Our intention is to take photos so that residents will be aware of what happened and the result.
