TONIGHT ON METROFOCUS

May 18, 2018 at 5:30 am

Now that former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has resigned, following allegations accusing him of sexual assault, who will take the reins of the office next? We’re looking at potential candidates. Before Meghan Markle weds Prince Harry, and before Grace Kelly became Princess Grace, another Hollywood actress became part of a royal family. We remember the story of this American princess, whose roots were in Brooklyn. Eric Gonzalez, the Brooklyn district attorney, is back to share his insights on policing in the 21st century. He’ll also shed light on his office’s victories as well as the challenges he expects ahead as he continues to work to keep Brooklyn safe. New York Magazine’s Vulture Festival, a pop culture event extravaganza, is back in NYC this weekend. We have a preview into one of the hottest tickets in town.

Aired on May 17, 2018.
