    Why are we hearing about this only now, for the first time, literally a few days before it starts???
    How will this affect traffic on 8th Street? Will it remain open? And will this be finished before the upcoming traffic nightmare due to the L train shutdown begins? I assume not -- so why was there no coordination between the DDC, the DOT, and the MTA as to the timing of this project?

    You actually make it look so easy with your performance but I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would never comprehend. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I'm looking forward to your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
