7:05 am
happening is it's going to try to work its way up into the tristate region, so it takes quite a while for that to happen. like yesterday, high pressure still this control, and it's going to keep our skies mainly clear host of the day. now, as we head into tomorrow, some of those clouds start working back up with that area of low pressure still hanging together and even intensifying as it makes its move into the carolinas here. they've got a lot of clouds and some showers in the mid-atlantic region, but for us here in the tristate, we're still waiting for that rain to arrive. that probably is only going to come for some of us. here's what's happening. that area of low pressure is struggling because highs just to the north of it and trying to hold tight. we'll get some cloud cover into saturday and then shower chances try to roll into the tristate, but it may be over the southern sections of new jersey or eastern long island if that low pressure continues to track up to the north and east at the same time. doesn't look like everybody's going to get that rainfall, in fact, more than likely most of

7:30 am
cast and show you this point forward. this area of low pressure continues to hang out and kind of drift toward the carolina coastline, bringing in lots of clouds and showers there today into tomorrow. but then as we go enter tomorrow into saturday -- from tomorrow into saturday, high pressure starts to lose its grip. it looks like it could bring some showers but primarily over south jersey and eastern long island. but that should be about it. it's not until early next week. high temp today goes up to 80 with mainly sunny skies. tomorrow's high, 75. 73 on saturday, and there's a quick shower chance coming through late sunday into early monday. let's get over to ines rosales and see how things are shaping up with your commute this morning. >> well, right now problems in brook lib. the belts parkway eastbound, tractor-trailer struck the overpass. this is by bay parkway. tractor-trailer's off to the shoulder, but you do have delays
7:31 am
eastbound by exit 13 watch out for ab accident blocking a lane. fdr drive k7 9 -- 79th street, no problems. a little stop and go here and there but not bad of a ride. as far as the cross bronx goes, coming up the gwb you do have traffic a little sluggish towards jerome avenue. no problems exiting off the deegan eastbound. greg and rosanna. >> thank you very much. it was early last year, the super bowl, a major national security event right here. it wasn't just the game, there was basically two or three weeks of activity. >> yeah. there was a lot of activity, a lot of excitement and enthusiasm and, of course a lot of security around something like that. >> there was actually one guy, the chief organizer for that in charge of the whole thing, guess what? he's in charge of arranging the pope's visit, has been since february. his name is al kelly. the cardinal a while back asked
7:32 am
him to chair the papal visit to new york city and, boy, is his plate full. al kelly, welcome back to good day new york. >> good to see you guys. >> how did this come about? did you and cardinal dolan sit down over a bowl of pasta and talk things out? >> i was lucky enough to meet the cardinal early in his tenure, and we've become good friends. he called me up around christmas time and asked me to have a couple beers with him. [laughter] he told me that the holy father was coming and asked me if i would help him organize it. yes? [laughter] >> i don't know. my wife said thinks i was. >> but did you want to take on -- it's a big undertaking. >> it's very exciting. this is a he is to havic thing -- historic thing for the city. i love to be able to help the city bring something like this to life. >> what has been the hardest part of getting ready for the visit? >> the fact that he's here for hours of available time.
7:33 am
and to try to decide what he was going to do and how to expose him to as many people as possible has been a tremendous challenge. >> what about organizing all the various activities? i mean, who, you know, organizes the pre-papal mass, the mass, the v events at the world trade center? >> well, it takes an army. i've been lucky enough to bring in some people who worked with me on the super bowl as well as people in the arch diocese who worked on the pope's visit back in 2008. we hired some professional folks, and generally at each site we have ally you are the jibbingal expert -- liturgical expert who tends to be a priest. much like any kind of symphony, i'm trying to make sure all the parts know what they're doing, but i'm relying on a lot of experts who are pros and do a fantastic job. >> and you've been talking to the vatican, i assume, as well.
7:34 am
vie -- variety of people. >> he will. the reality is that this pope is very, very popular. one of the things that makes it historic, this is probably the only time francis will ever be in new york, if you think about it. the reality is if he comes back to the united states, he'll probably go somewhere else, and he is going to be 79 in december. that is part of what makes it historic. one of the great challenges is the fact that we have very small amount of time, and is we're going to try to show him as much of the new yorkers as we can largely through these parades that we'll do tonight up fifth avenue and tomorrow night in central park. >> let me ask you something, you're the man with the tickets, right? have people been hitting you up for tickets? >> it's interesting. we have had people call us and say i love this pope, people say he's caused me to reflect on my faith, and then the toughest one is hope. we have gotten thousands of letters from the poor, the
7:35 am
whom want a booster shot from pope francis to help them. and trying to make as many of those people happy and make tickets available for them for some of these events has been difficult. >> there is no price tag on these tickets, by the way, which is good. any reports of folks getting ahad of these things -- ahold of these things and trying to make a buck on 'em? >> of course. thatthat's the entrepreneurial pitter of new yorkers, i guess. for? >> you know what? we've had great cooperation on craig's list, and we're trying to knock these things off. the reality of people wanting to exploit this is horrible. and, you know, a papal event is a very special type of thing, and all of these events are free, and for people to try to exploit that is something we're trying to stop at every turn. we've had phenomenal cooperation from secret service and nypd. those folks are absolute pros. >> let me ask you something, you did all the hard work. do you get a chance to meet the holy father?
7:36 am
i'll be very involved and very up close at a number of these events. but, you know, that's not really my objective. my objective is to do -- show off the city, show off our catholic church, hope our cardinal, archbishop, and if i immediate the holy father along the way, fantastic. but i'll certainly be close to him at these events the course of the next 24 hours. >> how are are you around the house? [laughter] >> i haven't been around the house very much in the last couple of weeks. >> are you in charge of, like, garbage disposal? what are your chores around the house? >> unfortunately, over the last few weeks i've had no responsibilities. but hopefully my wife would say that we have a good, shared partnership of work around the house. i'm good at grilling out and try to do that a couple nights and try to help with the dinners. >> barbecuing. >> barbecuing, yeah. >> al kelly, good luck, man. hey, it's not over. >> good to be with you, guys. thank you very much. >> a lot of fun. all right.
7:37 am
that gave more information. greg, what are you going to do with those tickets? >> these are hot tickets. they will be handled responsibly. >> good. 7:38. look at what's happening on fifth avenue already. >> not happening. >> well, traffic is moving already, but at 10:00, i everyone is saying, "hey! you gotta get fios!" but why? well, fios is a 100 percent fiber optic network, so you can get 100% out of all your devices. so whatever speed you need, fios has it with the fastest internet and wi-fi available, from 50 to 500 mbps. we're rated number 1 in customer satisfaction. ultimately, that's why. phone starting at $79.99 a month. plus get $350 back with a two year agreement.

asking me what they need to avoid. fifth avenue by 49th street, everything roadway opened. at 10:00, fifth avenue will be closed pretty much throughout the st. patrick's cathedral area. you'll have that closure set up by st. patrick's cathedral between 47th and 55th street, between tiffth and madison avenue, and they will add to those after 10:00. so you want to avoid this. subways will be running, but if there's overcrowding, they may shut down some of the stations. this is one of the spots you want to avoid. also 72nd street, avoid that til saturday, already closed between madison and fifth avenue along with 73rd and 75th street. if you're planning to travel that, you have 66th street, that will be closed more on friday. everywhere always buses that normally use those will be diverted up to 79th street, ask
7:42 am
as far as trains go right now, they're moving fine. extra service will be provided. >> what are those bright red things again on your map there? can we see that one her time? >> they're dots. they're just showing where the streets are closed. >> okay. they look like mini fires. everything's cool? traffic hot spots, gotcha. >> let's talk yankees with duke. >> this toronto last night, this game was a wig one for the yanks. they were just two and a half games behind going in, but the yanks needed to start hitting. before the start of the game last night this toronto, the blue jays and yankees honored the great yogi berra, the hall of famer and ten-time world series winner. he died, of course, on tuesday. he was 90 years old. in the top of the seventh, blue jays up by 1. then in the bottom of the frame, russ are el martin hammers a three-run homer to left. i actually thought it was strike three right beforehand and
7:43 am
should have been out but, nonetheless, the umpire didn't call it, and russell martin gets to swing the bat again. tron toe's lead now four that have games. and yesterday joe girardi, who knew yogi berra very, very well, took some time out to remember the hall of famer. >> when i think of yogi, i think it's, when god created man, i think yogi was an example. i mean, he was a guy that on saturdays in spring training would say i've got to cut out a little early, i've got to go to church. i can't be late. he was a great husband, a great family man who just wanted what was best for his family and his kids, took care of them. >> very well said. a towering tribute to yogi last night. the empire state building lit up in pinstripes to honor the yankee great. derek jeter had this to say, quote: to me, he was a dear friend and mentor.
7:44 am
i believe his finest quality was how he treated everyone with sincerity and kindness, end quote. and last night in the yankee dugout, the yankee line-up card with yogi's image on it, the yanks wearing the number 8 on their sleeve the rest of the season. now to the mets, it was another rough night this time against the braves, and they went into this one, you know what? just -- they're not playing well. >> matt harvey's fault. [laughter] keep going. >> he actually pitched pretty well sunday night but, nonetheless, they are 3-6 on this nine-game home stand. not good. all right, this was very nice as well. the mets honored yogi before the game as well. he managed the 1973 you gotta believe mets, they ended up winning the pennant. >> his first name was lawrence,
7:45 am
>> liewrns petering berra. >> rosanna, what a privilege it was for you to meet him and hang with him. in 2008. i know. i really, i felt honored to be in his presence. he was such a nice man, and he's got such a beautiful family. >> very, yeah, really. >> they carry on his spirit. >> braves and met, top of the seventh, friedman launches one deep to right, curtis granderson misplays it, two runs scored, and that's going to tie the game up. we go to the ninth, freeman, he wasn't really supposed to be playing. he's got a sore right wrist. terry collins says he's going to fire the scout that told him about that. braves shocked the mets 6-3. they still have a six and a half game in the national league east, the magic number down to five, that's because washington can't get out of their own way. as bad as the mets have been playing, washington's worse.
7:46 am
well, that puts things in perspective. >> i heard another yogi-ism. i'll never forget what's his [laughter] >> that's something we would say too. >> all right. let's take a look outside. we're on with our tickets, so cool. >> all right. it's a gorgeous day. good day's coming right we work weekends here. because it works for our patients. here, at cancer treatment centers of america in

8:08 am
all the issues he is speaking about are important. not everybody sees him the same way but they're important issues. nobody can say they're not important. the take on him is something that is unique to everybody, but, i think he will challenge everybody. >> so, bishop, i know that the holy father is going to be visiting a school, a catholic school in east harlem. what does this mean for catholic schools everywhere? because over the years, i mean so many people want to go there. sadly some of them come from struggling families homes and they don't have the money to spend on catholic education, even though catholic education, i mean graduation is tremendous. >> right. >> you know we hear so much about charter schools and core curriculum and all the other schools but catholic schools really know how to educate young people yet they have been on the stay alive. >> it's true. we recently just got our stores from the latest tests. we beat the state. we beat the city.
8:09 am
have the funds to be able to maintain a lot of schools. schools. queens. we think we can sustain them into the future. we do a lot of fund-raising to subsidize those who can not afford the catholic education. we want to keep our schools filled. we need help. we need government help. we're saving the city a lot of morn any. we do think we deserve, and help. >> i would like to go to foodage from washington, d.c. and one more time and warm welcome he received there. will be like that here but bigger. not terribly long ago in our nation's history, being catholic was seen as something of a liability or a political liability. john f. kennedy had to go out of his way to say he would defy the pope if challenged. we have something like in the paper today, 33% of the congress catholics. vice president of the united
8:10 am
there was a time where it was a problem in politics to be catholic, that right, bishop. >> that's exactly right. not easy today to be a good catholic, somebody following all the things the church teaches. >> gets complicated. >> very complicated. >> what do you call a catholic from column a to column b. >> cafeteria catholic. >> we talked about papal infallibility. he is the pope. therefore he can't make a mistake? >> only in matters of faith and morals. >> only in matters of faith and morals. he spends a lot of time talking about faith and morals. >> morals is a wide -- >> i love him, i don't think his observations about climate change are on point. i disagree with that. >> you could say that i don't believe everything he said or don't understand everything he said or has it been scientifically proved, that's it. you don't have to be believe in climate change. that has to be proven.
8:11 am
they still haven't proven it. >> i think he is on to something. >> we have issues, clearly. >> have you mapped out, written out what you will say to the holy father? >> in my mind, i have no script. it will come very quick at the airport. >> you want to give us a little taste this morning? do it in italian if you want to. >> [speaking italian] periphery. he loves periphery. on outskirts of everything, especially people on the outskirts. >> you basically said, welcome to new york. >> that's it. >> you speak italian. >> you're a professional you can go deeper than that. >> we'll talk to him, yes. >> this is very exciting. do you think his being here will kind of re-energize catholics in the area? >> i think so. everybody is excited. people really want to see him. he bring as message of truth. that is what the whole idea of what the holy father is. he is our guarantier of truth.
8:12 am
guarantier of unity. yesterday he spoke to the bishops of the united states in st. matthews cathedral in washington. that was his message, unity. bring the people together. serve the people, especially those most in need. clearly emphasizing that in thinks themes. >> everybody keeps telling us he is very hum bell. there will be no big dinners. when pope benedict was in town he would have big dinners every night, 50 people, 50 bishops and cardinals,. >> let's not -- >> i hear the holy father wants a simple meal every night. >> i think so. i don't think pope benedict had all the people. >> that is what i read. >> you make it sound like living large at -- >> so i mean there were dippers with some people. i mean, 25, 30 would be maximum. i've been there. you can't put anymore than that. >> right but i heard the holy father is not -- >> he downplays that. that is not his thing. >> this is not his thing either. replica --
8:13 am
>> i saw it. >> what do you think, bishop? you were up close. >> if the pope saw it would not be happy when he heard the price tag. >> that's true, yeah. well, anyway, it does delight people. we thank you, bishop. thank you very much. >> good luck today. >> yes, thank you. >> we have a note that we want you to slip into the holy father's pocket if you like. >> okay. >> thank you. it is just come on "good day new york". >> tomorrow morning, early. >> exactly. anyway. >> you're ridiculous. >> on that note before i get myself in trouble, thank you again. mike, take it away. >> all right. show you what we have, our yesterday. we have sunny skies again. central bark 64 degrees. dewpoint at 48 degrees. comfortable throughout the northeast. 54 in syracuse as well as burlington with mainly clear sky here. a lot of sunshine coming to you today. it looks like it is going to be basically another blast of sunshine for you today. feeling like we're in the dead

present i.d. when you travel. >> right, sometimes within the united states you can use your driver's license. >> a new york state driver's license starting next year may not be good enough to travel. i will read from the "new york post" here. the empire state driver's licenses are among those in four states that will no longer cut it for clearing airport security under tightened measures that will go into effect sometime next year. the state dmv asked for extension from the u.s. department of homeland security to comply with something called the real i.d. act of 2005, which calls for extra measures in the wake of the 9/11 terror attacks. if you look at sometimes identification, the passport, there is a great deal of paper. >> right. >> apparently new york state we're not quite there yet. >> you're kidding me? i'm surprised by that we're in same boat as louisiana, minnesota, new hampshire i'm hearing. >> four states out of 50. so we are a little bit behind. now a passport is the sufficient

8:42 am
they have it covered at every angle as security is at all-time high. >> very busy street. very excited. >> reporter: the excitement is building on east 72nd street outside of the official residence of the apostolic nuncio, the pope's home the next few days. streets are shut down, barricades are in place. local, state, federal law enforcement keeping eye on area watching tony but incredible special upper east side townhouse. >> i don't like feeling like i'm in the danger zone. >> reporter: but this militarized scene off of madison avenue a fraction of security measures in place citywide. thousands of police, military, counterterrorism personnel operating under the secret service are in place and ready for the pontiff's arrival tonight. his trip alone coinciding with the united nations general assembly and preceding president obama's visit is prompting the most complex security job in new york city history. a trifold operation requiring
8:43 am
the deployment of additional 6,000 police officers, 1700 vehicles and 40 miles of protective barriers. along fifth avenue and central park, a special fence erected by secret service. the barrier attempts to divide the crowds, keeping well-wishers from new yorkers on the move. pontiff's visit lasting 39 hours and 40 minutes. it requires a layered security approach made up of things you're meant to see and those you won't. if that is not enough, outside of his home away from home on the upper east side, a super fluidity of nuns calling on highest power. [praying] to keep pope francis safe. the papal residence is such an important part of the pope's visit there. is so much security that this morning the mayor and police commissioner came here to address the media. they told me they wouldn't speak with us directly but live on tv i attempted to at least ask them a few questions about the
8:44 am
if in fact the there are any known threats against new york or pope that our viewers need to be aware of. they would not speak to me on camera for perhaps their own reasons which seemingly don't seem to have anything to do with our viewers but as far as our viewers are concerned, greg, rosanna, can tell you from listening to them and hearing what they had to say the situation here is unchanged. that i ithe latest from outside the papal residence. back to both of you in the studio. >> thank you. we've been through this before. we had popes here before, right, we handle it. we'll handle it this time. this time though, i never had a ticket to an event. >> i know. isn't that great? meanwhile, don't forget if you don't have a ticket for event, we have you covered. we'll have all coverage head to toe on fox 5 ny.com and download the fox ny news app on phone. >> thank you, rosanna for scoring these tickets. thank you. >> you owe me a thousand dollars.
