The website https://mappingpoliceviolence.org/ has an amazing set of data visualizations to illustrate the patterns behind police violence. The sobering evidence is well worth examining and contemplating.
To see the 2020 map of where police violence occurred, see:
Last month’s power outages in Texas (Thanks deregulation!) led to the exponential use of a previously obscure website that tracks (nationally) power outages. This might be a good site to bookmark, although, the obvious ‘If the power is out, how are you going to look at it?’ question applies: https://poweroutage.us/area/regions
The site shows states with outages and allows you to drill down to look at regional, state, and local level data. Here’s what I found when I checked, 4 customers in Manhattan without power, this evening.
New Development for Park Avenue Between 126th and 128th Streets
CB11 approved a new proposed development in East Harlem that would have 2 new 17 story buildings, bringing 450 units of affordable housing. The location sits between 1775 Houses and AK Houses and would include retail space on the street level.
The developers – Tahl Propp Equities – currently own over 3,000 apartments in East Harlem. This development would be reserved for people with low and extremely low incomes.
In 1851 you could go to two hotels in our neighborhood. One would be where the (MTA) train line on Park Ave. meets the Harlem River, and the other would be at 128/3rd, where a public school now exists:
Also note that from 125 to 127th, between Park Avenue and 5th Avenue, there was a nursery (Floy’s Nursery).
