It's the day before Thanksgiving, and families are getting together — some for the first time since the pandemic began. But COVID is on the rise in parts of the state. We talk to New York Governor Kathy Hochul about COVID, why she isn't requiring vaccines for MTA workers, and other news.โดย WNYC Radio
 
COVID-19 has a knack for rebounding just as life starts to reopen a bit more in New York City. This fall, many businesses began hybrid operations — with a mix of office time and work-from-home schedules. International travelers are flooding back into the boroughs — a potential boon for the hard-hit hospitality industry. And holiday travel has almos…
 
Fall is a great time to plant a tree, because the cool weather and plenty of rain give it a chance to establish roots. WNYC’s Amy Pearl went to visit one special tree, part of Prospect Park's commemorative tree program.โดย WNYC Radio
 
Governor Kathy Hochul says she hopes construction of the next phase of the Second Avenue Subway could get under way next year.

The MTA hopes to use the shell…
 
Steven Banks, the city's social services commissioner who led the de Blasio Administration's effort to reduce homelessness, will step down at the end of the year, ending a mixed eight-year tenure that drew criticism from both homeless advocates and those opposed to the city's shelter expansion plan.

They described a smaller jail system with nearly 2,000 fewer detainees than Rike…
 
The New York State Assembly's Judiciary Committee has released a report into former Governor Andrew Cuomo’s conduct in office. It finds Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women, in line with findings from Attorney General Letitia James' report into Cuomo.

The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade will be mostly back to normal this year. Everyone is welcome along the 2.5 mile parade route — as long as you're wearing a mask. And if you want to attend the Wednesday afternoon balloon inflation, you'll need to show proof of vaccination. Gothamist photographer Scott Lynch has been covering the event for years, a…
 
In theory, being the general manager of a Major League Baseball team in the biggest market in the U.S. should be one of the most prized gigs in the world of sports. But that's apparently not the case for the New York Mets. Earlier this month, Sports Illustrated reported that 12 candidates approached by the team for the gig turned them down. New Yor…
 
COVID-19 spread quickly in prisons around the country, including in New Jersey which had one of the highest death rates in the U.S. In response, Gov. Phil Murphy signed a law last October that reduced the prison population by 40%. People within a year of their scheduled release could get out up to eight months early. One former prisoner said he's w…
 
The New York City public schools that rely solely on open windows and portable air purifiers have seen 23% more COVID-19 cases per students and a 29% increase in staff case rates when compared to buildings with stronger ventilation, such as HVAC systems, according to a new WNYC/Gothamist investigation. The findings raise new concerns about the adeq…
 
After two failed attempts, New York state’s ethics commission voted 12 to one Tuesday to revoke the permission it granted former Governor Andrew Cuomo to write the controversial memoir that earned him a payout of $5.1 million and is now the subject of multiple investigations. The revocation could mean Cuomo might have to forfeit some of the profits…

Inoculations will also b…
 
With summer's flowers long past, and the last leaves still straggling down, a lot of energy is going right now to lawn care. But before you blow those leaves and plant your ornamental cabbages, some naturalists are asking people to consider other, more environmentally friendly options. Doctor Regina Alverez is an Assistant Professor of Biology at D…
 
The MTA will not move forward with a planned fare hike next spring. And it won’t be cutting service over the next few years. Governor Kathy Hochul says that's thanks to President Biden’s infrastructure bill. That pot of money is supposed to be used on big projects—like new subway signals, station elevators, and the next phase of the 2nd Avenue Subw…
 
As the timeworn adage goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. In the case of political images, they are an exercise in stagecraft. Similar to former Mayor David Dinkins’s “gorgeous mosaic” metaphor, Eric Adams's team assembled an array of races, ethnicities, and religions around the new mayor-elect. Not everyone who is a part of Adams’s inner ci…

But WNYC…
 
More than 750,000 marijuana convictions are now being expunged in New York and New Jersey, wiped out as if the arrests never happened. Also wiped out? Barriers that those arrests presented to jobs, education, even custody of children, particularly for Black people who faced disproportionate police enforcement during marijuana prohibition. “No one s…
 
In September, the panel tasked with redrawing New York's congressional and legislative districts failed to agree over how the lines should be drawn for the next decade.
