Sexual assaults on our subways are on the rise. New York State Sen. Diane Savino joins us to share the startling statistics and a plan to combat these crimes. We explore how radical plans for reconstruction on the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway and the Brooklyn Heights Promenade might displace homeworkers. Who was “The Woman in the Iron Coffin?” A new episode of PBS’ “Secrets of the Dead” reveals the answer. We have a preview. Lady Liberty’s torch may be lifted and lit but is her golden door shut to the masses? We discuss immigration during the Trump presidency.
