Extreme Cold. . .Brrrrr!

Five of us made the trip to New York City last night. Today we tour properties developed by Common Ground, one of the most innovative and successful community development corporations in the country.

It was the story of Common Ground's Times Square Hotel development that influenced us to purchase a building for re-development in Downtown Dallas. The "60 Minutes" report on the project here in Manhattan is still etched in my mind.

This morning the temperature stands just above 0! The windchill makes it feel somewhere between 0 and 15 below! Cold for a Texas boy.

Looking forward to what we can discover together for the sake of our city and folks who deserve a quality space for living.

Cold but don't you just love the diversity of the city.

Have a great time and I am looking forward to hearing about the sucess of that project
