In what some saw as a stunning admission Wednesday, police Commissioner Bill Bratton said getting the homeless off the streets is more difficult now than when Rudolph Giuliani was mayor.
Mayor Bill de Blasio said many of the city’s homeless simply can’t afford the cost of living in New York City.
The city has launched an investigation following the death of a 4-year-old Bronx boy who might have ingested rat poison, and new questions have arisen about his mother.
Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio is on “a mission” of sorts. He wants to begin influencing the national agenda on a host of issues that pertain directly to New York City.
