DIC speak | “Donald Trump’s name first appeared in The New York Times in a 1973 story about accusations of bigotry against him. He’s stuck with that winning formula ever since. Read this oral history of Trump’s racism and intolerance from the June issue of The Atlantic:

Barbara Res, a construction manager in the early 1980s, recalled:

“We met with the architect to go over the elevator-cab interiors at Trump Tower, and there were little dots next to the numbers. Trump asked what the dots were, and the architect said, “It’s braille.” Trump was upset by that. He said, “Get rid of it.” The architect said, “I’m sorry; it’s the law.” This was before the Americans With Disabilities Act, but New York City had a law. Trump’s exact words were: “No blind people are going to live in this building.” – SOURCE: The Atlantic newsletter

  1. The pages added to the packet were a National Police Week proclamation, emails from 2 current owners of short term rentals, and the short term rentals ordinance itself.
    It will be interesting to hear the update on the rental of the Front St property. A comment or on a campaign page said they heard Norfolk Southern increased the lease cost for the parking area to $4000/yr.
