Good morning @metronewyork.
Here are the 6 things New Yorkers are talking about today.
A TRAIN SUSPENDED: Damage power lines at Howard Beach-JFK Airport have knocked out train service between Rockaway Blvd and Broad Channel in both directions. Southbound A train service is running to Ozone Park-Lefferts Blvd. Limited A train service will be running between Broad Channel and Far Rockaway-Mott Ave in both directions. Expect delays on the A and C train service in both directions. Commuters can take the Q52-Ltd, Q53, Q53-Ltd, Q113 and Q 114-Ltd as alternatives. Limited shuttle bus service will also be available between Broad Channel and Rockaway Boulevard northbound and between 88th Street and Broad Channel southbound. Shuttle delays are expected. LIRR is honoring metrocards.
FIFA SCANDAL: The mind-blowing soccer scandal puts Brooklyn at the center of the world today when prosecutors in the Eastern District, who have jurisdiction over the case, present their findings. Nine FIFA officials and five execs have been indicted on corruption charges. Attorney General Loretta Lynch ran the case when she was Brooklyn’s top federal prosecutor.
RANGERS: Yep. They won. Bring on Friday’s Game 7 .
KAYAK ‘BLACK WIDOW’: More details are emerging about Angelika Graswald’s alleged murder of fiance Vincent Viafore as they paddled on the Hudson River. She reportedly tampered with his paddle and waited for 20 minutes after he went into the drink before calling 911.
WEATHER: Hot, humid, sticky, mid-80s. Thunderstorms possible.
MANHATTAN MURDERS: The Post has this provocative headline this morning: You’re 45% more likely to be murdered in de Blasio’s Manhattan. “Murders are way up so far this year in Manhattan,” The Post says. “Sixteen people were killed around the borough between the first of the year and Sunday. Over the same period last year, the figure was 11. That’s an increase of about 45 percent. Shootings in the borough have also soared.”
