MetroFocus Preview: January 22

January 18, 2013 at 10:14 am

MetroFocus airs January 22 at 10:30 p.m. on NJTV, January 23 at 7:30 p.m. on WLIW, and January 24 at 9 p.m. on THIRTEEN.

In this edition of MetroFocus, what’s next now that billions of dollars in federal recovery money is flowing? We’ll hear a few of the proposed ideas for protecting the shoreline, and an excerpt from the Long Island Index symposium on lessons learned for transportation. We’ll compare and contrast the Governors of New York and New Jersey and their state of the state addresses with The New York Times’ Nick Confessore and The Record/’s Alfred Doblin. NJ Today managing editor Mike Schneider brings us up-to-date on FEMA’s work in New Jersey and what new flood maps mean for hard hit coastal communities.

To celebrate Grand Central’s centennial year, Rafael Pi Roman interviews Sam Roberts, author of “Grand Central: How a Train Station Transformed America.”

And a report from the NY Times Natalia Osipova on New York’s Russian immigrant community, which has been making noise here that’s designed to be heard in Moscow.
