After nearly four decades years of construction and confusion and chaos (and what not), you could actually say that there's progress to note at Avenue A with the East Houston Reconstruction Project.

See — less confusion and chaos. You can see the streets! And new curbs!





An aside, does anyone know how to get to the hospital… oh, forget it!



Anyway …

The East Houston Reconstruction Project is now scheduled (PDF!) to be completed by mid-2016, according to the latest city estimates.

Punjabi is so screwed. :( Nowhere for cabbies to pull over and grab a samosa.

They'll move on to the place at Crosby between Houston and Prince (another taxi Indian food pop-in).
