An industry that has proven especially controversial: private prisons, and they’ve taken a financial hit from New York City. Comptroller Scott Stringer is here with the details. New York had an amazing day celebrating gay pride yesterday with an incredible record breaking turn out, but the celebration of equality continues. Tonight “First Person” host, Tonilyn Sideco, takes us inside her personal journey. Nora Ephron penned that immortal scene inside Katz’s Deli from “When Harry Met Sally,” but did she have one man in mind when she wrote it? Richard Cohen was Nora’s best friend, forever thought to be “the guy,” but was he? He’s here to set the record straight and to help remember a great writer who captured a place and time that was distinctly New York. We’ll show the inside story of one Syrian girl’s adjustment to the United States after fleeing her war torn country.
