TREATING SERIOUS MENTAL ILLNESS IN NYC

How do the problems of the current system influence homelessness and incarceration? How does Mayor de Blasio’s $850 million ThriveNYC plan stand up? And how can New York better help those with serious mental illness?

On February 282017, The Beat hosted a panel discussion on treating serious mental illness in New York City featuring experts in mental illness, public health, mental health courts, and homeless services. The panel was moderated by NY1 Anchor Errol Louis and included DJ Jaffe (Mental Illness Policy Org), Dr. Gary Belkin (NYC Department of Health & Mental Hygiene), Judge Matthew D'Emic (Brooklyn Mental Health Court), and Muzzy Rosenblatt (BRC).

 

UNCLOGGING NYC's TRANSPORTATION

New York City's transportation infrastructure is the backbone of the world's most powerful and dynamic economic center. Yet regional transit agencies, overseeing a complex system of bridges, roads, tunnels, and rail, are also subjects of intense controversy. The MTA's newly-unveiled 34th Street Hudson Yards station is already showing signs of faulty construction. Plans for a new Port Authority bus terminal in Midtown have been the subject of much disagreement, with cost estimates upward of $10 billion. And earlier this year, New Jersey Transit narrowly avoided a union strike over longstanding contract disputes.

One thing is clear: The decisions made by our public officials today are sure to impact New Yorkers for generations to come.

On April 27th, 2016The Beat hosted an NYC transportation panel moderated by NY1 Anchor Errol Louis with Port Authority Executive Director Pat Foye, NY Assembly Member David Weprin, leading transportation engineer Sam Schwartz, and Manhattan Institute Senior Fellow Nicole Gelinas.

QUALITY OF LIFE

“Quality of life” is a subjective term. Numbers tell part of the story, but citizens often have an intuitive sense of whether conditions in a city are improving or declining. Recent polls indicate New Yorkers are deeply dissatisfied with the direction of the city under Mayor de Blasio, with voters across the spectrum expressing concerns about crime and a perceived decline in the quality of life.

On November 19th, 2015The Beat hosted its first ever Quality of Life Panel. The panel was moderated by NY1 Anchor Errol Louis and featured NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton, Senior Advisor to the Mayor Phil Walzak, and Manhattan Institute Senior Fellows Jason Riley and Fred Siegel.
