TONIGHT ON METROFOCUS

April 13, 2018 at 6:30 pm

Local residents are suing nearly every agency involved. The expected L train shutdown is projected to last 15 months. Greg Mocker, transit reporter for WPIX-11, is here with the details. A scary statistic: if you’re between the ages of 18 and 64 and live in New York, about 52 percent of you do not have a retirement plan. Even worse: poverty rates for the elderly New Yorkers are around 60 percent with rates as high as 80% if you’re a minority. But now there’s relief. The details ahead. An icon and an “Only Made in New York” success story. Diane Von Furstenberg has changed the way women look and broke the glass ceiling in the process. She’s here to share her story. And Lincoln Center celebrates Autism Awareness Month with their Big Umbrella Festival. We’ve got your ticket.

Aired on April 13, 2018.
