Friday News Round-Up

If you haven’t already checked out coverage of Monday’s press conference, do it. And here’s what else happened this week:
- The Obama administration leaked plans for a second term, and its all about housing. And Ed DeMarco, head of FHFA, may finally lose his job. And as The Atlantic points out, that may mean that a lot of other people may get theirs back! This is a good news. (If you’re in Ohio, VOTE!)
- Which would you rather? Be Stopped and Frisked, or “cooked over a low heat, kept alive as long as possible.” The NYPD is a continues to be a shining example of appropriate police behavior.
- Get ready for Frankenstorm! Governor Cuomo has declared a state of emergency. Some things to bear in mind: Many of the buildings we work with will not be able to stand up to winds and rain of this velocity. In many of these buildings, even a light rain causes it to rain inside. If the storm hits the way that meteorologists are expecting it to, we expect that our tenants will suffer from a disproportionate level of damage. Check out this post from when Hurricane Irene hit New York.
- Speaking of preparing for weather, heat should now be turned on. If it isn’t call your landlord or call 311. Or do both.
