NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Mayor de Blasio delivered a stunning attack on the New Jersey mayors suing to stop New York City from dumping homeless families in decrepit apartments across the river. The fiery comments come even as his own Department of Investigation issues a blistering report about how the city treated the forgotten families CBS2 has been reporting on for nearly a year. Blinders were apparently firmly in place for city officials – ignoring things like a mice infested, mold covered home with no heat in Newark where the city parked Brooklyn resident Julie Rodriguez and her young family last winter.Mayor de Blasio offered the “bah humbug” defense to a suit filed by Newark and being considered by Elizabeth and other locales to stop New York City from dumping its homeless families – CBS2’s Forgotten Families – in uninhabitable buildings. “This season of the year especially I find this extraordinary that they decide to sue the city … [Read more...] about Forgotten Families: Instead Of Faulting Flawed Program, De Blasio Slams Mayors Suing NYC For Dumping Homeless In New Jersey

MAHWAH, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – A family reunion took a New Jersey elementary school by surprise – teaching children not only a lesson about family, but about service to our country. Students at the Betsy Ross School in Mahwah were given simple instructions, wear red, white, and blue, and pay attention during Thursday’s assembly. “Here at school we talk about Veterans Day,” a speaker at the school said.
