City Hallways (May 24): Cuteness on display

Is there such a thing as too much cuteness?

Well, if so, I don’t want to know about it.

We've been telling you about the artwork of Buffalo's pre-K students on display on the first floor of City Hall.

It's part of the school district's "50th Annual Prekindergarten Art Show."

On Tuesday, youngsters from Herman Badillo Bilingual Academy stopped by City Hall to pose in front of their creation: Starry Night in Buffalo.

It’s their interpretation of Vincent Van Gogh’s masterpiece "Starry Night."

To create the mood and movement of air, Buffalo’s mini Van Goghs used paintbrush work and scattered the stars by blowing the paint from a straw. They also created the cityscape by cutting paper.

The pre-K exhibit will be on display until next Wednesday.

My buddy and colleague Susan Schulman got a little surprise when she went to the city’s Property Information web page.

There’s a new format that includes more information that is easier to view. Instead of having to click on different links, all the information for a particular property is on one page.

It tells the owner, prior owner, date of sale, price, assessment and even the taxes.

And there’s also a thumbnail photo of each property that links to a street view map.

Go to the city’s website and check it out.


I’m baaaaaaack!

After a little hiatus, it’s back to the grind at City Hallways.

I’ll try very hard never to leave you all for that long again – just as long as I don’t hit the lottery. In that case, you’re on your own.
