Signs the economy is picking up in Midtown and surrounding neighborhoods?The big headline this morning was that the jobs numbers are looking a little better yet again. And this afternoon I looked up from my laptop to see cranes operating on 3 big construction sites: a new mid-rise hotel and 2 luxury high-rise apartment towers. It's a little hard to see from this picture, but they're hard at work today. Nice to see these positive signs.February 03 2012 - Midtown00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
