July 11, 2017: TONIGHT ON METROFOCUS

July 12, 2017 at 5:30 am

The transit meltdown many expected didn’t happen yesterday much to the surprise of everyone including the MTA, but that was only day one.  We’ve got your latest on this summer’s “Days of Delays.”  Were you expecting to see the old Kosciuszko Bridge demolished today?  If so you weren’t alone.  The cause of many traffic jams is still standing, and we’ll explain why.  After a 3 year stay on Rikers Island, mainly in solitary confinement for a crime he didn’t commit, Kalief Browder killed himself. Now his brother, Akeem, is demanding change, and he wants to be the next Mayor of New York City to ensure justice for all is not just justice for the few.  He’ll be here to discuss his run for City Hall.  And a tree grows in Brooklyn, Queens, and Long Island. Our “Summer of Adventure” rages on, and it’ll have you appreciating some of our mightiest neighbors.
