Talk About Bad Timing...

News

With the national heat dome moving our way, our public beaches may be closed in a day. So fat, the Hudson and East, and Harlem Rivers are off-limits to sports canoeing, kayaking, and swimming through this weekend.

The culprit is an explosion at a water-treatment plant in Manhattan, which forced the city to pump raw sewage into the river. A fire ripped through the engine room of the North River Waste water Treatment Plant on West 135th Street.

New Yorkers On Alert

News

While the local tension increases, our area's heightened security does also. This, following a "credible" threat that terrorists may wish to unleash an attack on this anniversary of 9/11. Meanwhile, New Yorkers went to work today as police officers swarmed subway stations and bridges in a show of armed force.

Authorities are searching for 3 Al Qaeda terrorists who may be plotting here in NYC, or Washington, DC. These are "significant," but unconfirmed threat to these two cities, federal and state law enforcement say.

IT'S HOT IN NEW YORK

News

City Island Images decided to take an afternoon ride as temperatures soared towards the 100 degree mark and you believe me, it was hotter than I expected it to be.

We spoke with a cop who told me he had been outdoors for four hours directing traffic. Unfortunately, weather forecasters say that today is going to be an even hotter day.

Some less fortunate New Yorkers were forced into the city’s cooling centers and even emergency rooms. Senior citizens were hit the hardest by this amazing heatwave, flocking to NYC cooling centers to find refuge.

News

Snow kidding. folks... this is not a Treat, but Mother Nature's Trick!

NYC has the potential for up to 5, inches of snowfall, but because the ground is warm, these flakes are likely to melt on contact.

While the city is no stranger to frigid Octobers, snow before Halloween is a rarity.
According to historians, our earliest snowfall in the city was a paltry 0.5 inches in Central Park on Oct. 15, 1876. There have only been three October days with measurable snowfall since the city began keeping records in 1869.
