This is an appeal under New York's Freedom of Information Law regarding request #F14,997.

My request was partially fulfilled; however, part of my request was for "all emails... regarding the escalators at Stuyvesant High School (345 Chambers Street, New York, New York) between 8/1/18 and 9/15/18." I later narrowed this to emails from/to Eric Contreras, Brian Moran, and/or maintenance or janitorial staff.

I did not receive any emails, so I am appealing this portion of the response. Please let me know if no such emails exist or if they exist but are being withheld. If they are being withheld, I ask that they be released.

Sincerely,

Hugo Smith
