Good morning, New York. It's your @metronewyork Metro6@7.
WHERE ARE THE JOBS?
New York City might be buzzing with job growth, but not necessarily on Wall Street. Last week, a new report by the Partnership for NYC found the city lost 50,000 financial services jobs — many of them mid-level — from 2000-2013, leaving many lamenting the supposed fall of Wall Street and wondering which industries are growing as financial sector jobs decline. Metro takes a look.
ISSAC OLIVER & "INTIMACY IDIOT"
Comic writer Issac Oliver has a hysterical debut book, "Intimacy Idiot," and Metro catches up with him to dish on writing, his thoughts on PrEP and the strangest thing to hit his face recently. You can catch Isaac Oliver at PRIDE at the Bell House in Brooklyn on Sunday June 28th.
PRISON BREAK UPDATE
The manhunt for escaped killers Richard Matt and David Sweat expanded to points west and south of Clinton Correctional over the weekend as authorities responded to multiple sightings but still came up empty. One senator says they could be riding the rails.
FINDING MISTER SOFTEE
Metro tells you where to find old-time favorite Mister Softee trucks. And just in time ahead of today's heat and tomorrow's scorcher.
NYC AND #StandWithCharleston
A sea of grief and solidarity surrounded Brooklyn's Barclays Center Sunday night as New Yorkers opened their heart for the city of Charleston, South Carolina in the aftermath of the killing of nine black churchmembers last week, allegedly by a young white racist.
CATCHING UP WITH BOBBY PARNELL
It had been nearly two years since Bobby Parnell picked up a save in a major league game, but when the Mets’ former closer got the chance to shut the door last Tuesday night against the Blue Jays, Parnell seized the moment. Metro has the redux.
