TONIGHT ON METROFOCUS

December 18, 2018 at 5:30 am

From Trump Tower to New York City Housing Authority housing. For one Department of Housing and Urban Development official, the view from her office will change dramatically. But is this a publicity stunt, or is this a move for accountability? We have the details. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg opens up about life on the bench and bouncing back after cracking three ribs this past November.  We’ll preview “Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg In Conversation,” coming to public television beginning January 2. “The Boss” takes his final curtain call after his intimate run at the Walter Kerr Theatre. Join us for a look at the kid from Asbury Park who became a rock star and a legend. As the arts lose funding in public schools, one institution of learning in Schenectady, New York, is hoping to preserve a creative niche for a special group of kids. The Wildwood Program allows students with autism and other forms of complex learning disabilities to express themselves creatively and freely through the arts.

Aired on December 17, 2018.
