Public Hearing: The Second Avenue Subway Construction

       The Second Avenue Subway is being constructed to provide residents and commuters with additional access to mass transit. However, this endeavor has lead to numerous problems. Many businesses, residents, building owners, and commuters have been adversely affected by the construction which has eliminated parking, diminished sidewalks, and severely blocked access to local businesses. In addition, the scheduled dates of completion have been pushed back, and limited information has been disseminated to impacted businesses and residents.

The government will pay 40% of your renovation costs…

The government will pay 40% of your renovation costs…

Written by Jay Harper on October 8th, 2010

It’s amazing how much we didn’t know when we bought our place. I was doing TONS of research, thought I knew a fair amount, but first I didn’t know we were buying into the roughest block in the neighborhood, and now I find out there are government programs that will pay up to 40% of our renovation costs. 40% makes a REAL difference and we had no clue when we went into contract… If we had picked the “wrong” building we would have gotten nothing....
