The last couple of weeks have been rather difficult in trying to find the time to blog. However, I wish to assure the few readers that I have that we will be getting back to it on a regular basis as soon as I free up more time. At this moment, time for blogging is in short supply but I will make an effort to post when I can.

I reported when I started this blog a couple of months ago that the construction on 39th street between 8th and 9th Avenues was going to be a hotel. Those were the rumors and buzz going around. One could also see that the architecture seemed to be more fitting for an office building or a hotel. Now we can confirm that it is a Hotel that is nearing completion at the location. It is ideally situated near the 9th Avenue D train station placing it within a half hour of midtown Manhattan and it is also within easy reach of the B35 and B70 bus lines. One of the work permits at the site states that they are in the process of obtaining a certificate of occupancy for a "transient hotel". When construction will be completed we do not know at the moment. But it appears that the building is mostly already built.
