January 27, 2017: TONIGHT ON METROFOCUS

January 28, 2017 at 5:44 am

Tonight, a border war on Fifth Avenue? Sort of. On one side: Trump Tower. On the other: neighboring businesses. In between: a sea of traffic, barriers, and secret service. A recipe for disaster? You bet! But what is its financial impact on the city? Find out the inside story tonight from New York City council member Dan Garodnick, whose district is the site of where this battle is playing out.

Next, years after Hurricane Sandy hit, many of our neighbors still long to go home but can’t. We hear how the Nature Conservancy is working to relocate families with flooded homes.

Then, today is International Holocaust Remembrance Day, and as the world honors the six million murdered in Hitler’s gas chambers, we take you to a Long Island institution whose job it is to ensure that we “never forget.” 

Finally, you’ve heard of the Emmys, the Tonys, and the Oscars. Now, find out about the duPont Awards and why, in this age of alternative factsthey matter now more than ever.
