With the November general election quickly approaching, the city’s next mayor already has plenty on the to-do list, and that includes addressing the rise in traffic fatalities. Advocates say this summer was the deadliest in terms of traffic crashes in the five boroughs, despite Mayor de Blasio’s Vision Zero initiative. Gersh Kuntzman, the editor-in-chief of StreetsBlog, joined Errol to talk about what the next mayor should be prioritizing to make the city’s streets safer for everyone. He also discussed the increase in bike riding, the debate over electric scooters and the push for more speed cameras. And he talked about breaking “car culture” and the issues surrounding placard abuse.

    Naveed Jamali: How the NYPD can make things safer

    52:18

    With crime on the rise, Eric Adams promised that when he became mayor, his police department would try to cut crime off at the pass, getting ahead of problems before they could get worse. National security expert and former undercover FBI agent Naveed Jamali joined Errol to explain how data can help the NYPD achieve this goal. He also argues that the police need to stop measuring success by the number of arrests they make and focus instead on disrupting criminal activity. Beyond sharing his ideas on how to improve public safety, Jamali dives into his experience infiltrating a Russian military intelligence operation in New York, a fascinating story that he narrates in detail in his book “How to Catch a Russian Spy: The True Story of an American Civilian Turned Double Agent.”   JOIN THE CONVERSATION Join the conversation, weigh in on Twitter using the hashtag #NY1YouDecide or give us a call at 212-379-3440 and leave a message.

    David Bloomfield: In the middle of a pandemic, what do New York City students need?

    39:59

    For the second year in a row, New York City schools are back in session after the winter break amid a rapid surge in COVID-19 cases — this time caused by the highly contagious omicron variant. Keeping schools open for in-person learning is a controversial move, but the new mayor, Eric Adams, and his schools chancellor are sticking to it. Brooklyn College and CUNY Grad Center education professor David Bloomfield joined Errol to weigh in on the debate over school closures and talk about the many other deep-rooted problems the city’s Department of Education still needs to confront. Bloomfield argues that Chancellor David Banks needs to focus on tackling school segregation, but is he willing to take on that fight?   JOIN THE CONVERSATION Join the conversation, weigh in on Twitter using the hashtag #NY1YouDecide or give us a call at 212-379-3440 and leave a message.
