I live in the zone and bought on 87th St because the apartment was amazing and undervalued, and saw nothing that could even compare in the 87/9 zones. My DC is 3 now and we aren't 100% sure we will send him there but I have heard good things about the school and that it's getting even better. That said, there are several low income housing buildings in the zone too, and those aren't going anywhere. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I work with many people, and am directly responsible to a Board of 15. Of the dozens of people I work with and am responsible to on a regular basis, two of them garner an inordinate amount of my attention and intellectual energy because they're the only two who will call me and tell me how I did this or that wrong, and not the way they would have done it, without offering to fix it. They'll be pleasant enough, but every so often they just call or write with unabashed criticism. I suspect that they're both doing it on purpose; one deliberately, the other just because no one has ever pushed back on her doing it. I could quit this job tomorrow if I wanted, so it's not like I'm terrified of getting fired.
