So imagine it's your day off. There's no work or school today. You're ready to go out and make the most of it, but the whole city has shut down, and your friends just want to stay in bed.

If you're a night worker - that is, one of less than 5 percent of Americans who work overnight - you may already know this dilemma ... And that brings us to this week's episode of FAQ City.

The old Hercules Industrial Park off Statesville Avenue is up for redevelopment.

WFAE has a new initiative called Ask Us to let our audience suggest story ideas. On our website, we're asking what you're curious about in the Charlotte region, its life, and culture. We recently put another set of five questions to a vote – letting you decide the story you wanted us to cover. The winner came from Steve Tekola, of east Charlotte. He talked to WFAE's David Boraks.

WFAE has a new initiative to connect with our audience and get story suggestions. On our website, we ask you to tell us what you wonder about the Charlotte region, its life, and culture. We recently put three questions to a vote – letting you decide the story you wanted us to cover. The overwhelming winner was a question that came to us from Jennifer Lange, a resident of Charlotte’s Steele Creek area.
