>> i know, where'd the summer go? >> this was back in june. >> we went to the john jay pool on east 79th street. >> what else? oh, we went with that fancy machine. remember this nonsense? >> yeah, that flyboard. >> it was very cool. at one point we actually made it work for a little while. >> you got up there for a long time. >> unfortunately all we have are the crashes -- [laughter] what else? it's back to work, back to school. rosanna, i've got a full-proof plan to make this year sweet. >> what are you going to do? >> school supplies! i got something for you. >> i always look forward to the lunchboxes. >> here's one for you featuring frozen. >> does it come with a they are has? >> yes. you can pour your hot soup in there. i've got a transformer -- would you like some crayons?

[laughter] in the meantime, we're enthusiastic. >> meanwhile, if anybody needs school supplies, it's audrey. because her kids are in school. >> starting tomorrow. >> do you need some crayons? >> i actually have not done the shopping. [laughter] >> is that right? >> the line is going to be -- >> take all this stuff. >> we'll give it to you afterclass. >> i don't need it until 8:30 tomorrow morning. you know, some schools are last week. as you send the kids out this morning, dress hem in lightweight clothing because it is going to a hot one as everyone heads out this morning. temperatures are in the middle to upper 70s across much of the area. we are expecting it to be hot and humid later today, and temperatures will be in the 90s and a lot of sunshine, so
shorts and a t-shirt not only for the kiddies, but also the teachers. you need to be comfortable. 60s in monticello and sussex, 76 in central park. 74 in bridgeport and 71 in islip. dewpoints making it uncomfortable this morning, most readings are in the 60s, they're going to stay high for the next couple of days. the wind direction is out of the southwest and relatively light, but it's that southwest wind flow which is helping to bump up the heat and humidity. no rain on the radar, just a couple of high, thin clouds later this afternoon. high pressure is our dominant weather feature, and it's going to protected us from rain at least until tomorrow. today hot and humid. it'll be breeze city, but we're going with high numbers mostly in the 90s. 92 for central park. the actual record for this date is 93, so we could tie it possibly. tomorrow still warm and humid, same thing for thursday, but we will have the chance for rain
which is hutch needed because drought. this morning. ines is here. >> good morning, audrey. let's start off with the lincoln tunnel. joe bierman is in sky fox hd, where you have a major delay. what's going on? >> port authority finally telling us it's a three-car accident with five injuries south tube. you can see they have completely closed that south tube. they actually backed up the cars that were stuck inside the tube, so that's an indicator it'll be a while. you have well over a one hour delay on your way to an hour and a half inbound lincoln tunnel. you want to head over to the holland, the gw or the tappan zee and avoid this whole mess. it's just going to be gridlock back to you. >> you can see it on the local road, a mess traveling inbound. other issues, the bqe westbound,
there's an accident by queens boulevard, one lane blocked. the grand central approaching the q gardens interchange, only one lane getting through with an accident. traffic backs up to the northern state parkway, and the cross eye hand parkway, traffic slow northbound by northern boulevard. we have an accident. as far as staten island, crossing the verrazano bridge lower level there's a crash, stick with the upper level. let's go to the holland tunnel, if you want to take this instead of the lincoln tunnel, this is the turnpike approach, they're stopped at the light there, but you're fine inbound. as far as the george washington bridge, upper level 30 minutes, lower level 15-20. trains also a great option, everything running on or close to schedule, street cleaning rules are back in effect today. >> ines, thank you so much. the west indian day parade, one of the highlights of labor day weekend. and unfortunately, a terrible, terrible shooting happened, and the search is on this morning
for the man who shot this aide to governor cuomo. >> yeah. kerry gabetu43 years old, a harvard law graduate. he was enjoying the festivities with his brother when apparently he was caught in the cross fire, seriously injured. it's not looking good at this point. he was shot in the head, and whoever shot him, they don't know who he is yet. let's go to robert moses who has more on this. >> greg and rosanna, good morning to you. i just spoke to police, and kerry underwent surgery, and police say that he is still this critical condition morning at kings county hospital. his wife has been all about overcoming challenges to achieve great success. now, he paces the toughest -- faces the toughest challenge of all as he fights to survive. governor cuomo says that the 43-year-old is a shining example of the american dream can. he grew up in public housing, graduated from harvard and joined the cuomo administration as a lawyer in 2011.
>> could have gone to any law firm in this city and made quadruple what he was getting paid by the state. he was all heart. he wanted to give back to his community. >> he was walking with his brother and a group of friends on bedford avenue enjoying the celebrations before the west indian day parade early yesterday morning when police say he got caught in the cross fire between who rival groups. >> there erupted a bunch ofshots. a good 20 shots. >> one of those shots hit him in the head. police say he was not the intended target. >> this was a beautiful man, a sweet man, a man who was giving back to his community. gentle man who had nothing to do, was involved in nothing, just walking down the street. >> police recovered a weapon but have not made any arrests. the shooting is yet another example of the violence that plagues the west indian day parade each year. another man was stabbed to death
about an hour and a half before the shooting. gangs account for much of the violence. >> it's a traditional time, unfortunately in this area, that we deal with all the time. so it's unfortunate that it occurred during this event, but there's no reason to not go forward with the events each year. >> mayor de blasio was among those who visited kerry at the hospital. >> our prayers are with him and with his family, and there's another reminder of bigger fights we are engaged in every day which is to get guns off our streets. >> this is a really well-loved public servant, and you can see that on twitter. this from attorney general eric schneiderman, my thoughts and prayers are with kerry, he is a wonderful public servant. and this from city councilwoman melissa, the gown violence must end, hashtag peace. greg and rosanna, back to you.
>> thank you. the governor, actually, is in puerto rico this morning. he went on a high-level trip accompanied by numerous elected officials -- >> except -- >> mayor de blasio. >> right. >> there's tension between the two. puerto rico is in a financial crisis right now. >> yeah. it's $72 billion in debt, and yesterday the governor called on congress to give the island the power to declare bankruptcy. among those joining the governor are bronx borough president ruben diaz jr -- >> they look very much alike there. >> i believe he's -- >> puerto rican official. sorry we don't have his name. yes, the mayor is not on that trip. >> all right. right here, starting today, changes for those who take the bus home from the port authority. >> the port authority over there on the west side. yes, big changings. by the way, it desperately needs renovation. let's go to teresa priolo outside the bus depot with more. hi, teresa.
>> good morning, everyone. i'll tell you more about those plans in just a minute. if you've ever been in the bus terminal especially during the evening rush, you have likely experienced the throngs of people racing toward their gates in order to catch their bus home, and it really is the difference between knowing your gate and not knowing your gate. that's basically what it is when it comes to making your ride home. well, for 30% of the 110,000 people who rely on the bus terminal every day, they will be scrambling today. but the port authority is telling us really this short-term chaos will hopefully lead to long-term improvement. >> it's confusing now, as it is now. that might help the situation. >> riders on 55 bus routes traveling through the port authority bus terminal are gearing up for what is expected to be some very confusing commutes. the port authority is reassigning its departure gates for nj transit and coach buses, so where you used to catch your bus has now been changed to a different gate on a different
floor. >> i might have to go to a different gate. if it's not that big of a change and i have time to adjust, i'll be fine. >> the rejiggering should affect more than 30,000 commuters who use the bus terminal on a daily basis. nj transit buses will be housed on the third floor in the heart of building, allowing more buses to leave on time. all coach buses and its partners will move to the fourth floor. this essentially allows the actual bus companies to, as one port authority executive put it, be owners of their own state. state -- own fate. >> the buses get caught up in the tunnel and get backed up and and cause delays. >> the change, part of the $90 million initiative to enhance the passenger experience. it was spurred by the significant delays commuters experienced last summer when gridlock caused buses to miss their departure times. it's a time some riders won't soon forget. >> we'll wait and see, you know? i've been living in new jersey
for two years, and it is kind of tough. >> i just talked to one commuter who told me he is expecting it to be mayhem later on today, and he's hoping to get out of work early just to make his bus. the port authority has people handing out these pamphlets this morning telling people their gates have changed, it lists all the different bus routes and where their new gates will be. as far as the building is concerned, because we were just talking about that, later this year the port authority will be discussing plans to redo the entire building. they expect it to cost upwas of $10.5 billion, and it may take 15 years to complete the project. that's the latest from midtown this morning, back to you in the studio. >> say hi to the jackie gleason statue over there on your way home. see you later. >> let's go across the pond. a british drone strike has taken out three isis terrorists who had been planning to kill queen elizabeth ii. >> and other members of the to royal family, yes. we just heard this from british leadership yesterday.
a drone strike in syria back on august 21st. the plot, apparently, was to kill the queen, other members of the royal family on the 70th anniversary of v-j today -- >> which is next week. >> that was thwarted, and the british prime minister says the terrorists were taken out, again, by a drone strike back in august. >> meanwhile, europe's migrant crisis worsens. in hungary, thousands of refugees broke through police lines, hundreds of thousands of migrants have been flooding into europe, and as they try to get away and escape war and poverty stricken countries including syria, iraq and afghanistan -- >> you heard the pope is taking in ref due gees. >> yes. and there's calls for the united states to take as well. we'll see how that works out. >> all right. we have the ongoing saga of that clerk in kentucky, the one who refuses to issue marriage licenses to gay comes. kim davis is still this jail.
her lawyers are seeking to have her freed today, but they've got a fight on their hands. >> yeah. they disagree with the order to force ms. davis to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples or allow her deputy clerk to do so. his order was upheld by the supreme court, so when she continued to refuse on religious grounds, she was put in jail for failing to comply with the judge's order. she remains in jail while her attorneys file an emergency motion to get her out. >> all right. it's hot in new york city. the beaches, the city beaches will remain open for several more days. this is a new thing. it usually closes, they close right on labor day along with the city pools. >> who knew it cost almost $700,000 just to keep the beaches open for another week. >> well, there's, gosh, there's clean-up, there are lifeguards to be paid, so this is new. they will be are open -- when do they actually close? after sunday. >> sunday. >> this includes the rockway beach in queens, coney island,
midland and south beaches in staten island, orchard beach in the bronx -- >> that's a good one. >> so they're going to be open through sunday. officials say there's been a big beaches. closing. and, boy, wouldn't it be nice on this 93-degree day that's going to feel like 100 to have the pools open? >> apparently, it costs $900,000 the week. and by the way, not that many people go to the pool compared to those who go to the beach. >> that makes sense. hey, one more plug for the pool, we had so much fun. i don't know why i'm treating you like a 4-year-old girl here. >> i know. i didn't want to get my hair wet, which with you around -- >> you were all about the hair. that was fun, but the summer is over. audrey? >> too bad. >> yeah. well, you know what? it's still going to feel like summer even though it's unofficially ending because, as greg mentioned, temperatures are going to make it feel like 90-degree range.
the actual reading will be in the 90s, and it'll feel even hotter. 76 in central ark, dewpoint and humidity very uncomfortable courtesy of that south/southwest wind flow which is relatively light. no rain on our radar, most of the shower activity's happening on northern tier of the state. high pressure's going to keep us dry for tuesday, but wednesday this is well off towards our west, and that one will are help ignite a couple of showers especially north and west of the city starting tomorrow night. tropical storm grace is headed for the leeward islands, but by the time it reaches that area, it will be downgraded to a tropical depression. uv index on the beach is high at a 7, so wear your sun scribe. rip current risk is moderate. mostly sunny today, hot and humid. temperatures will be in the mid 80s along our shore points, low to mid 90s in inland locations. we're going for a high of 9 92 in central park. the record on this day is 93, we
could actually tie it, we'll have to wait and see. and tomorrow more heat and humidity on wednesday, and the chance of rain comes back into the picture. we're in a little bit of a drought. the rain ends friday morning, and we expect sunshine and nice weather for saturday with temperatures of 82. let's head over to ines rosales who's been very busy with traffic issues this morning. >> yeah, a lot going on. be prepared to pack some patience. queens, we had an earlier accident can still there on the bqe westbound by queens boulevard, cross island parkway jammed north northbound. there was an earlier accident by exit 17, these two problems enough to cause a delay back to the meadow brook. traffic's slow past jericho turnpike as you approach queens boulevard. picks up a little bit but then slows down as you approach the cross island parkway. new jerseyness watch out for a couple of accidents on the
garden state parkway, avoid that. let's go to our cameras, take a look at the lincoln tunnel because this is the biggest headache. 90 minutes inbound, traffic on ruth 3 and -- route 3 and the turnpike backed up for miles. they closed the south tube. it's a multicar accident with injuries there, so everyone has to use the center tube. they're trying to use one of the tubes just for the buses heading into port authority, but this is still going to cause delays heading into the city. hold land, gwb, about a 20 minute delay each. route 3, this is how far back that delay goes. this is by the doeland -- meadowland, it starts slowing down towards the western sur. so traffic just a sleet mess from new jersey. if you're taking the trains, everything running on or close to schedule. greg and rosanna, welcome back, guys. >> thank you, ines. looking good in blue. >> you too. you guys look nice and tan.
>> did we miss anything while we were gone? >> greg, do you want to tell her? >> what. >> greg and his hoverboard. >> my son wants a hover body. because he saw you. >> be careful on that thing. >> did you get hurt? >> i still haven't returned it yet. >> go to modell's, they sell them cheaply. anyway, ed sullivan theater, big goings on. >> stephen colbert takes over. >> coming up later on good day new york. wendy williams is stopping by. she's getting ready for the seventh season of he we thought we' d be ready. but demand for our cocktail bitters was huge. i could feel our deadlines racing towards us. we didn' t need a loan. we needed short-term funding. fast. our amex helped us fill the orders. just like that. you can' t predict it, but you can be ready.

lion if he had known the lion had a name. you know what? he really was kind of cyber-bullied by the entire planet there for a little while. >> you have to wonder, if he really knew that lion was protected -- >> he said he did not know, and if he did know, he wouldn't have. he didn't kill a person, i feel bad for cecil, but the guy's got to move on. >> and the guy has a family, and they need to be protected too. >> all right. so take a look at this, a football game in texas, and somebody tackled the referee. >> oh, no. two high school football players could be facing charges for hitting a referee from behind during a game last week. it was an ugly scene near san antonio. you can see the first player hitting the ref on a play, then the second player leading with his helmet, hitting the man again -- >> how is the referee, by the way? you take a hit like that without equipment on, you might be in trouble. keep going. >> the two players that hit him have already been suspended from
their school and their team. and, hopefully, the referee is doing okay. >> all right. so the pope, he is coming to town. and all over the united states, philadelphia, new york. but there's news from the vatican about marriage, and ending marriage. >> yeah. new set of procedures for annulling marriages in the catholic church. the move comes after he and many catholics complained that the current system is costly and take years. and without an annulment, divorced catholics who remarry outside the church cannot receive communion. the new rules would allow for fast track decisions and remove automatic appeals -- >> annulment. now, that is in the church's eyes the marriage almost never happened. >> right. >> wow. so you can get an annulment a little bit easier and, i think, less expensively. of details, check 'em out. >> also, greg, everyone wants to see the pope. and there's a big, big mass that he's going to do in philadelphia later this month.
and tickets for that mass are going to be made available today. >> basically, if you don't have a ticket for my of the new york -- for any of the new york events, you're probably not going to get them. >> the pope will be giving a speech on immigration and religious freedom in front of independence hall on september 26th -- >> that's in philadelphia. >> right. officials say 10,000 tickets will be available for that event beginning at noon. >> all right. by the way -- >> the world meeting web site. >> the general -- the central park, come meet the pope time -- >> yeah. >> -- all the spots have been taken. >> oh. >> yeah, it ended yesterday. and you'll be notified by thursday if you're going to have access to central park or at least that area where the pope will be. anyway, it's going to be exciting coming up in a couple of weeks. >> all right. 7:26, we're going to take a quick break. it's going to be a hot and steamy one, going to feel like 100 degree cans. welcome back.

these days. [laughter] >> when do we get the break, the parents get a break? looks like if you're heading out to school, should be already getting there. should be heading towards the school bus, it's getting late. wear lightweight clothing today because it's hot and humid as we approach record heat. the high temperature for central parenting today is 93, that's the record high, we could reach it this afternoon. we're expecting some showers and storms, but that doesn't happen until tomorrow night into thursday, and we need the rain. we're in a little wit of a drought. cooler and less humid air will be in place just in time for the weekend. right now sitting in the 60s in monticello and also up towards sussex, new jersey. we're in the 70s across the island and 73 in belmar. feeling muggy with the dew points in the 60s, it will stay that way today and tomorrow. we have a system sitting out towards our west, a couple of showers toward the north, but we're dry right here, and we're
going to stay that way for your tuesday. a few high clouds later this afternoon, it's going to be about the heat and humidity across the area. then tomorrow sunny skies, clouds coming this ahead of the frontal system that will ignite some showers possibly in the afternoon. then on thursday i think that's when we'll see more in the way of good rainfall. not today though. sunny skies will help heat things up into the 90s, tomorrow at 89, 86 for thursday, and the rain tapers off early friday morning, another chance of rain rate on sunday. let's see how it looks on the roads this morning, it has been rough for a lot of folks. >> the commute's been very rough this morning. let's start off with what's going on on long island. take a look, traffic slow between the meadow brook traveling westbound, exit 17, then as you approach the cross island parkway, there's an accident on the northbound side
by northern boulevard. queens commute, grand central parkway there was an earlier accident by union turnpike leaving only one lane open, traffic backed up to the northern state parkway, and you can see how the lie has those slow spots. bqe westbound queens boulevard, you have a crash there, and stat isen island expressway, slow approaching the verrazano bridge. the lower level has an accident, brooklyn-bound, so try to stick to the upper side. let's go to the lincoln tunnel. that's another big headache this morning, this is by the tube. they've reopened the south tube, they had that shut down for an accident, it was shut down for about an hour and a half, 90 minutes heading into the lincoln tunnel. if you want to use the george washington bridge, 20 minutes on the lower level, 30 on the upper, holland tunnel's 20 from both approaches. trains are doing fine, back to a normal schedule. street cleaning rules back in effect. >> thanks a lot.
just about everybody says homelessness is on the rise this new york city. you see it everywhere you go -- >> people are complaining left and right. now, is it any worse than it was a few years ago? people are perceiving that it is. >> yes. and mayor giuliani, by the way, made news over long weekend in an op-ed in the new york post. he is blaming mayor de blasio and his policies for this problem. >> yeah. then cardinal dolan, you know, reached out too also in an p ode this the -- op-ed in the daily news and talked about love and cam compassion for these people. >> let's go to juliet huddy live from madison square garden. hi there, juliet. >> hi there. yeah, there's this pedestrian seating area over here, and typically especially early on in the morning you'll see a lot of homeless people out here. you know, you mentioned the homeless population, the homeless problem. the desnudas, the shootings, you know, we've been hearing a lot over the last several months,
references to the bad old days of new york city, remember, the squeegee men, the dirty and seedy times square, the homeless rob. inevitably, when we talk about that, the name rudy giuliani is mentioned. the former new york city mayor many credit with cleaning up the city, making it safer, more livable. but as those who lived here then remember, giuliani's tactics were controversial, his policies to deal with the city's homeless population in particular be blasted by critics who accused him of being heartless and not liking black people. in that sunday op you would, giuliani accuseed the current mayor of bringing the city back to the bad old days as in the real old days, the dark ages of western civilization by, quote, letting people live and relieve themselves in the streets. yesterday mayor bill de blasio responded. listen. >> i think he's delusional. if you think about what rudy giuliani did as mayor,
