they are looking possibly for a second person involved in that attack. also, the third suspect from the airport bombing. we talked a lot about this over the last few days. airport surveillance video. they are hoping to track him down before he carries out possibly another attack. that is what he was apparently planning to do. a large-scale. type attack. they are very concerned that something else could happen. how much information they'll jump authorities have about all
before this happened. one of them was actually detained and deported. this was back in june. turkish officials say they gave out some authorities a heads up that this guy was red flagged. ultimately, ended up coming here and he and his brother carried out the bombings. serious, serious concerns about that. authorities say that the situation remains grave. they are concerned that another happen. greg and kerry, back to you. greg: these be careful. it looks particularly quiet at the neighborhood you are at right now. any idea if it is unusually
>> not so much. there are people in here having coffee. having some food. we were in one area yesterday. a lot quieter than normal. usually it is more busy. it was not that busy. there were not that many people out. it is downtown brussels. the bars, the restaurants, they were not hacked. that is definitely unusual. i hate saying that there was a tension. there really was a tension. like i said, authorities are concerned about that as well.

they had been visiting the netherlands. they are dutch citizens that reside here in new york. and in turn. alex is engaged. his future father-in-law described him as brilliant, clever and smart. these last few days have been filled with anguish. awaiting word on the state of their loved ones. earlier today, secretary of state john kerry spoke about the siblings. >> the united states is praying and grieving with you. for the loved ones of those that have been very cruelly taken from us. including americans.

later on in the afternoon. we're still warming up, it's now 50 out at bridgeport, 53 in central park, 47 in sussex, 53 in allentown, temps are warmer than yesterday, that's for sure, by about 5-12 degrees on average around the tristate. again, the southwest wind is pulling up the warmer temps. scattered showers here and there, but they will become more numerous, more widespread as we head further into the later morning and early afternoon hours. as that front gets closer to us, it's not going to make a huge rain day, but it'll be decent for the fist part of it. temps up to 62 by midday and a high of 67 today, and a high of 54 tomorrow. the rain is out of here, sunny skies on sunday too on easter sunday, and then the showers are making a comeback as we head into monday of next week. let's bring back ines and see what's going on with the commute.
side to me. guess a lot of folks took off. >> yes. traffic lighter than normal. street cleaning rules are is suspended because it's good friday. route 109 in jersey city closed both directions between manhattan avenue and county road, an accident involving power lines. other than that, you're fine on the turnpike, the parkway, no issues on route 3 or route 80. the lie, you're okay. take a look at our cameras, this is rock lan county, the thruway over by the garden state parkway heading towards the tappan zee bridge, no delays northbound. belts parkway by jfk, no delays either. as for the trains, running on or carrie and greg. >> okay, thank you very much. the latest now on the situation in brussels, and a big new york angle here. a brother and sister who were feared lost in the terror attacks, it is now confirmed
sasha and alexander pa, azowski, they were in the airport at the time of the blast. >> sasha was a student at the manhattan college. fox 5's robert moses joins us live from that school with more information. good morning, robert. >> greg and carrie, good morning to you. that sad news, the news that so many of us dreaded to hear, came in a family statement earlier today. sasha took classes here at marymount manhattan college on east 71st street. separately this morning, an official said at least two americans had been killed in the attacks in brussels. it is not clear if that official was referring to the brother and sister or someone else. sasha and her brother, alexander, were at the airport on tuesday in the departures hall. they were preparing to fly back here to new york when those
they had been visiting the the netherlands. they are dutch citizens who resided here in new york. sasha, at one point a production intern at a company called shera events, alex is engaged. these last few days, as you can imagine, have been filled with anguish and anxiety as word was awaited of the fate of sasha and alec. earlier this morning secretary of state john kerry spoke about the americans who were killed and injured. >> the united states, i want you to know, is praying and grieving with you for the loved ones of those who have been very cruelly taken from us including americans. and for the many who are injured in these despicable attacks. >> there is an american couple, stephanie and justin schultz,
those attacks. we do not know their fate as of yet but, again, the sad news this morning, confirmation from the family of sasha sal and sander -- ash shah and alexander that they are among the dead in that horrific attack at brussels airport. that is the latest live from outside marymount manhattan college this morning, greg and carrie, back to you. >> robert moses, thanks a lot. >> we're also learning of more arrests. six people were arrested after raids in brussels last night. authorities at this point have not said if those arrests are connected to the bombing. >> things are very, very tense though in brussels. we saw john huddy there earlier. liz dahlem has a wrap for us from the desk. >> good morning. there were raids all over last night, and police are still trying to untangle this web that consists of this terror cell, here. there was a significant arrest in paris that reportedly stopped another potential attack.
to the paris attacks earring leader --'s ring leader. there was no reported connect to what happened in brussels. over in belgium more arrests. six suspects detained late last authorities haven't said if there was a clear connection to last tuesday's attack. >> translator: the government and the competent authorities will do their utmost to shed light on both these attacks. >> authorities believe another suspected may be linked to the subway explosions. another man can be seen in surveillance video alongside the main bomber carrying a large bag possibly full of exploratives -- explosives. the belgian government is facing criticism over its handling of the situation. administrators admit the government was previously warned by turkish officials about one of the attackers who was a foreign terrorist fighter.
minister and the inner cabinet requested clearly that i stay on begin the current situation. -- given the current situation, that in a war situation you cannot leave the field. >> reports indicate the two brothers involved in the attacks had been stalking a top nuclear scientist. a hot of video footage was recovered from their apartment, and it's possible they may have been plotting to kidnap that scientist and get information toover or nuclear material. a lot of people are fearful that something else may be coming in the coming days. >> we hope and pray not. thank you very much, liz. >> here at home a mother and son are dead after a triple shooting on staten island. >> the killer opened fire around 6:00 outside the mariners harbor houses. it may have been an argument over a car sale. the gunman shot 21-year-old anthony rivera three times in the face. his mother heard the shots, ran outside, and the gunman shot her in the face. they both died.
another guy there that was shot in the leg. the gunman ran off. if you know anything about this, please call crimestoppers, 800-577-tips. again, three people shot, fatally a mother and son. terrible. >> very sad. well, the war of words between donald trump and ted cruz is escalating. it just keeps escalating by the moment. >> okay. and this is their spouses, melania on the right, heidi cruz on the left. ted cruz -- i'm sorry, donald trump tweeted this image, retweeted it. what is he getting at? >> well, basically, they're images of the two women, and it says no need to spill beans, images are worth a thousand words with. mrs. cruz with a not-so-flattering facial expression. >> people are interpreting this as donald trump putting down the appearance of heidi cruz. here's what ted had to say about that. >> seeing him go deeper and deeper to the gutter, it's not easy to tick me off.
but you mess with my wife, you mess with my kids, that'll do it every time. donald, you're a sniveling coward x leave heidi the hell alone. >> wow. pretty intense there. donald trump still on top in delegate count, and a lot of people think he's marching toward that nomination. a lot of people also think it can't happen. i don't think it says on donald trump that a lot of people have that caveat, retweets are not endorsements. i don't know if he has one of those. i don't have reaction this moment from donald trump. it is getting nasty, but they have something kind of extraordinary and kind of sad in common. a major story in today's new york times talk about ted cruz's half-sister miriam. she died at the age of 49 back in 2011 in suburban philadelphia. again, they share the same father. she had a very troubled life; alcohol and drug addiction. she died, actually, the coroner ruled of an accidental drug
ted was at times close with her. i think he financially supported her child, his nephew. but it was a stripped relationship at times -- strained relationship at times. and donald trump also lost a brother to, well, alcohol-related illnesses, fred trump. it's interesting that this scourge affected both families. you can read about it in today's new york times. they also did a pretty sensitive portrait of, yeah, donald trump's brother fred. all right. >> today is good friday, the start of the three days before christians believe jesus christ rose again, of course, easter sunday. >> okay, this is not a police event. theythey have this every year. cardinal dolan will take part in something called the way of the cross over the brooklyn bridge. >> it's supposed to replicate jesus' last step as he carried his own cross to the crucifixion.
10:00 at st. james cathedral basilica, and at noon at st. patrick's there will be meditations on the last words of christ, at 3:30 he will lead the liturgy of the lord's passion and death. >> okay. say high to his eminence. he's terrific. mikey, what's happening? >> well, getting ready for a is sunny weekend, but before that happens, we've got to get through the rainfall and the gray skies out there today. sunshine, beautiful weather's coming up over the weekend, high temps in the mid 50s. seasonable temperatures, basically, but today's going to be warmer than normal. what's going on? well, we've got the clouds out there, 53 at central park, it's south wind that brings in the warmer temps, around 7 miles per hour, and it will be warm in general. you're at 66 in philadelphia. soon our temps are going to be like that in the mid to perhaps even upper 60s as that southwest wind continues to press into the tristate region. 49 in albany and 53 in williams
here's what we have, first a few scattered showers have passed on by, but as we expand the view out, a lot more to our southwest. at least patchy showers through the first half of the day, and then into the often a few more showers, perhaps a few isolated thunderstorms pummel through with the cold front that passes by, and then it should wrap up by later on this evening. that's what the future cast is saying as well. and it will be out of here by tomorrow morning, 8:00 in the morning, clear skies on saturday as well as sunday. clear. at least through the beginning of the day, and then later in the afternoon some clouds start gathering to the west of us as we head in toward the end of sunday. yep, shower chances starting to pick up again, especially as we head poo monday. today we've got showers, high temps between 57-67 degrees. breezy and mild with that southerly wind starting to push back into the tristate. however, by this evening it's president bush gone, and tonight -- pretty much gone, and
lows between 32-42, so you'll feel that chill in the air tomorrow morning, and that's the way it's going to be the next couple of lows. highs right around 55 degrees, somewhere in that range both saturday as well as easter sunday. a little more rain coming at you monday as well as thursday of next week, but generally speaking, these temps are at or above normal for the entire seven-day stretch. all right, the fox 5ny weather app is at the apple itunes store and google play store, it doesn't cost you a thing, so let's put it to work today. speaking of that, ines, less people going to work on good friday. >> if you have to go to work, at least you're not dealing with traffic. meters remain in effect. connecticut, no issues, as far as your commute in new jersey, par sipny area, morris county, 82/87 doing fine. let's take a look at staten island expressway over by victory boulevard, lighter than
towards the verrazano bridge. as for the lincoln tunnel driving into the city, a nice ride this morning. take a look around the toll plaza, you're just going straight through. slowing down into the tunnel, no problems. there were some issues on the gwb upper level, minor delays at the cash toll plaza, on the upper level holland tunnel, also a delay-free ride from both approaches. carrie and greg. >> sad to report, yesterday we learned garry shandling, the comedian, dead at the age of 66. >> passed away yesterday in los angeles. no official cause of death yet, but his publicist says it was apparently a heart attack. shandling, best known for the larry sanders show, we're going to be talking to one of the co-creators of that show at 9:00. especially sad considering shandling had just joked about his funeral in one of his last appearances. >> what i want at my funeral is an actual boxing referee to do a count, and at five just wave it
up. [laughter] >> that's comedians in cars getting coffee with jerry sign fell. just a -- seinfeld. just a couple of months ago. boy, a really nice guy, always struck me as. >> yeah. and so many comedians and actors have come out to say to how kind of a person he was, so really, really sad news. jimmy kimmel tweeting, quote, garry shandling buzz as kind -- was as kind and generous as he was funny, and that's saying a lot. and steve martin, a beautifully unpredictable mind, he even voluntarily offered jokes and ideas for oscars. maag relate cho, no, no, no, i love you, i cannot accept you're gone, rest in power, my hero. >> he started as an engineering major in college, and then he
also we lost nicholas skapeta, the former commissioner of the fire department, he was in charge of the administration for children's service, close associate of mayor bloomberg and mayor giuliani, dead at the anal of 83. -- age of 83. >> we are remembering him this morning. >> nicholas, by the way, actually he ran acs, and for a while when he was growing up from 4 to, like, 12, he was raised under the care of foster parent ands group homes. he was separated from his brothers. so when he became the head of acs, it was kind of perfect -- >> yeah, personal connection to it. >> -- he knew what it was like to be one of those kids. rest in peace. j.r. smith formerly of the knicks, now of the cavs, soon to be a guest of need -- good day new york. >> going to be stopping by at 9:00. >> said to to be a very nice guy.
>> you know what i miss? >> what do you miss? >> my hoverboard. [laughter] 2015 was the summer of the hoverboard. >> and then what happened? >> and then everybody was like, you can't ride it, it's illegal. finally, i had to get off it. >> yeah. >> it's the only time in my life i made a run for it. i was on the hoverboard, and a security guard said, hey, stop, i just turned around and went the other way. [laugher] i had that for about 30 seconds. anyway, i don't use it anymore -- >> did you get chased after? >> yeah, yeah. they were on the walkie-talkies and everything. i guess it was the right thing to put it away. >> you can still ride it in your house if you're careful.
here? >> it's easter. you might think halloween's the biggest holiday for candy, but easter hops over it. >> carrie, keep going. >> americans spent $823 million on easter candy last year, that's up from halloween's haul. part of the reason, experts say people hand out cheap candy to trick or treaters, and on easter people splurge on -- >> interesting. because you're not giving that stuff away. >> exactly. >> you are, it's for your friends and family. it's for immediate loved ones, so you do the higher quality stuff. i am somewhat surprised. anyway, easter, that's a really great component of it, all the candy. lauren simonetti, from the fox business network. >> speaking of easter, the playboy bunny is up for sale, the entire playboy company. and we're hearing it could fetch half a billion dollars. okay, let me give you the story here. remember in january the almost 90-year-old hugh hefner, the
sale, and the condition was whoever bought this mansion for $200 million, that was the asking price, they had to let hef live there for the rest of his life. so many calls poured in they said what if we sold the whole company? now they're toying with that prospect, and like i said, the price tag would be about $500 million. it would entail the mansion, the digital assets, the magazine, and the march issue is the first one without nudity. selling "vanity fair" without fashion in it. so when people say they really read the articles in playboy, i guess now they're finally telling the truth. whoever bias it might make it nude again, right? >> you never know. >> probably. >> yeah, could be. i wonder if it's worth more without the nudity than with the nudity. i know not everybody in his family thinks that was a good idea, like his son. >> it might be one and done.
nudity these days. >> exactly. >> that's one of the reasons they decided no to -- all right. thank you very much, lauren. >> happy easter. >> if you're not sure where to find fox business in your area, go to foxbusiness.com/channelfinder. >> coming up, the batman v. superman movie out today. i always thought they were friends, at least they were when justice, you remember that? >> oh, yeah. >> well, a guy who's in the movie will be here. >> yeah. harry lennox is going to be here at 9:00 to tell us all about it. and what else, greg? >> oh, there's the apple store. i think you can buy the new iphone starting today, right? >> yeah, and that ipad. there's something new -- >> the phone se. doesn't seem like there's much of a line there, right?
hey, have you heard? before school starts in september, all kids going into 7th have to get the meningococcal vaccine. it protects against diseases like meningitis. that can be serious, even deadly. yeah, that's why they can't start school without it. something to share? (giggling) talk to your health care provider. even kids who've had one shot may still need a booster. s morning multitasking
>> on this good friday, this is our great tradition here at good day new york. we've been doing it for a couple years now this song every friday at 8:30. does it feel like friday? friday. >> it did. a lot of people are off today, people take off from work. >> good for them. >> i would love to know how this tradition started. >> randomly, these things. we did it more than once, and all of a sudden we had a tradition on our hands. >> i love it. >> so we're looking around town, what is going on. not too much actually. nothing other than that woman. [laughter] walking down the street. oh, there she's got some company. >> it's good friday. >> do you ever find yourself walking behind somebody, and you think they think you're following them? >> yes. >> it's awkward. >> it's a personal space issue. >> i'm going this way too. how about when you get on the elevator with somebody outside the building, and you find yourself -- >> definitely creepy. >> it's awkward, and then you've got to make the small talk sort of.
hey, how's that for an opener? [laughter] >> that's good. you are following them. >> you live in an elevator building? >> i do. >> how about mike? >> i do. >> yeah, yeah. if they follow you inside your building, and then you get scared, that happened to me one there. >> do you ever hear about those social experiments where people walk into an elevate e and they don't turn around? >> that is strange. who socially experimented $i don't know. i've seen it done in video, and aye read about it. we walk into an elevator -- >> you monitor what floor you're on. that's very key. >> right. >> you're looking at fifth avenue. is the apple store in sight? there's bergdorf goodman. >> good sales. >> there is the apple store which, by the way, is in the basement. it's not above ground. >> yeah. i like that one. >> how you doing? hope you have the day off.
she's coloring eggs and all that stuff. have fun, rosanna. >> she's sleeping. [laughter] >> mike, what's up? >> it's great outside, but at least it's not pouring down rain. we have seen some rain, but it's kind of few and far between as far as the patchy showers that we do have, so it's not like a through. here are the weather headlines for the next few days. first of all, a few showers out there today, mild and breezy at the same time, so at least it's warm, and you've got the warm factor in there too. now, the rain is out of here as we head into the weekend, so it will be nice and sunny, but your high temps come back into your 50s. that's pretty much the norm, and rain showers do get back into the area as we kick off the next workweek in particular. here's what we see on the radar, not picking up too much over northern new jersey at this point in time, but scattered showers around that, including some back over pennsylvania, some down to the south, some that have moved over to connecticut.
tristate up around sullivan county, quite a few showers, but it's nothing that's all that tremendous at point in time. your temps are pretty warn,51 in montauk, 53 in allentown with a mostly cloudy sky and only a few patchy showers here and there. our winds are pretty light and variable at this point in time, but they are, generally speaking, going to the start coming this from the south, and that will make us a little warmer outside. we also have the cloud cover at the same time and the showers, so it's warm, but it's not like you're going to be doing an outdoor lunch. i guess you could if you could get it in between passing showers. we'll continue to squeeze out rain here and there, maybe an occasional thunderstorm scattered around the tristate region, but it should start clearing the area by later on this evening. a little bit, we'll take whatever we can get. we're more than two inches in terms of rainfall for the year. as we fast forward to easter sunday, your forecast, if you're
temp right around 39 degree, it will be on the cool side, but we get up to 49 by 11 a.m. and high of about 56 on, at 3 p.m., but still dry. a few more clouds in the afternoon. as we go through the next seven days, a high of 67 today, warm but windy and wet. drier saturday and easter sunday, but showers come back monday and also more on thursday. all right, let's bring in ines and see what's going on with our commute. it looks dead out there, that's a good thing. [laughter] >> it's not dead. it is lighter than normal. street cleaning rules suspended because of good friday, meters remain in effect. traffic a little lighter than normal, but we do have some problems. manhattan and county road because of an accident involving downed power lines.
suffolk, nasa county look -- nassau county looks good. let's check out the lincoln tunnel, no delays inbound, dead. normally a 45 minute delay on a doing good. hold land, gwb, same section. everyone moves at the speed limits between jfk and leopards boulevard. as for the trains, running on or close to schedule. carrie and greg. >> okay, ines. so it's been confirmed, a brother and sister who lived in new york city, they were killed in the brussels terror attacks. the blasts at the airport. >> these are pictures of sasha and alexander pin chow sky, two of the victims at the airport. the siblings were dutch citizens. they were on their way back to new york when those bombs went off, and this morning u.s. officials are saying two u.s. citizens died in the attack, several are still missing including a kentucky couple,
as for the investigation this morn, six people were arrested in homes in brussels last night, but authorities have not yet said if they are connected to the bombings. and in france police arrested a man they say to be in the final stages of a bomb plot who had tied to the mastermind of november's attacks in paris. >> very sad. well, folks, back here in new york we have learned that it's happening for sure, laguardia and the port authority bus terminal will be being renovated in a major way, and let's face it, both facilities need it. let's start with laguardia. over the years it's been noted it's kind of a dilapidated heap. it's needed some work for a very long time. they've been working on it piecemeal here and there. even the vice president called it a third world airport. that wasn't very nice, but there was some truth to it. and how about that port authority? legendary for being crummy. and seedy. and a bit of a pit. well, they're both beginning to get billions and billions and billions of dollars more a face
a $4 billion redevelopment, renovation is in the works. let's check in with fox 5's at teresa priolo. good morning to you. >> hey, good morning, carrie and greg. when you talk to flyers inside, the word they use to describe both the port authority and laguardia is the word "dump." they don't like them, and they are so pleased to hear there's going to be an infusion of cash to both. let's start with the laguardia expansion project as it is officially known. it was first proposed by governor cuomo back in july. it will connect, this is the main part, it's going to connect all the terminals, something that doesn't exist right now, and revitalizing laguardia is going to cost anywhere from $4-$5.5 billion depending on who you ask about a price tag. this is welcome news not only for the port authority board members, but also for flyers. >> a $4 billion cost, this project represents the largest
new infrastructure in u.s. history. >> it could use a facelift. it's a convenient airport, it's small. i prefer it over some of the others in the area, but it'd be nice to have some new felt facilities. >> it'd be nice to live in a modern country that has nice airports. >> we have an antiquated airport, and they have to do something here, so if we're going to pay tax, what else are we going to pay taxes for? >> here's the interesting thing about the laguardia project. we learned yesterday it wasn't going to happen unless the bus terminal project was also approved. that was the real headline yesterday. so the way it went down is that one new york port authority board member agreed to abandon a plan that would have seen that bus terminal actually move to the other side of the hudson to new jersey. he abandoned that plan in exchange for a new jersey appointee backing the laguardia extension plan. nobody knows exactly how much
but we're hearing anywhere from $10-15 billion. these were part of 400 projects the port authority has recently green lighted, money thrown at the hudson rail project, more cash thrown at the pass station. according to the board member, they say yesterday was the single largest allocation of funds in one day in the port authority's history. checks. that's the latest from laguardia this morning, back to both of you. >> thanks a lot. the george washington bridge apparently in for some cash. so remember the flight attendant who was caught in los angeles with all that cocaine allegedly? she ran away, she got away. she turned up in new york, she's in jail. pail has been set at $500,000 -- bail has been set at $500,000. the judge doesn't want her to leave so fast. >> her name is marcia gay reynolds. this judge ordered her to remain behind bars until this afternoon to give prosecutors in los
case. she is accused of kicking off her heels and running off after she was stopped for random screening at lax last friday. officials say she left behind a suitcase that was filled with 70 pounds of cocaine. she surrendered at jfk on wednesday. the defense says she may not have known about the drugs while prosecutors suggest she may have done this before. >> okay, so a great big lizard, known as a kimono dragon, was found in flushing, queens. they got nervous, and they called the police. >> it's a bizarre story. this is a 3-foot reptile. it turned up on a street in flushing yesterday. residents were able to trap the pet with a bucket until cops got there. experts say, luckily, it was not fully grown, because they can get up to 8 feet long and weigh 200 pounds. the lizard, by the way, is now at a nearby animal hospital until its owner can be found and questioned.
video of a kimono dragon. what is he eating? >> that is huge -- >> let's see, they're carnivores. okay. it's not like they eat leaves and grass, they like meat. it's able to locate its prey using a keen sense of smell which can locate a dead or dying animal from a range of up to 6 miles. now that's crazy. how fast can they move, by the way? it seems like he lumbers, you know what i mean? at 6 niles away, he'll -- mimes away, he'll get there in two days. one was on the loose in queens. >> i'm surprised people were able to catch this thing -- >> oh, that's a soccer ball he's playing with. oh, wow. >> look at that tongue. >> and look at the mucus. all right. so garry shandling, folks, dead at the age of 666789 we heard -- 66. we heard the news yesterday, great comedian, and we're meeting some of his friends today, his collaborators who worked with him on some of his greatest prompts.

>> little bit of madonna as we hook at madonna's house on the upper east side. madonna -- [laughter] some controversy here. she has a beautiful townhouse. huge, big, she deserves it, she's earned it, but does she have the right to claim all the parking space in front of her house? apparently she or her team have done that. see that big yellow strip? yeah. that wasn't done by the city, that was done by somebody who works for madonna. maybe madonna herself late at night, who knows? they even altered the sidewalk a little bit. you see it's imprinted -- >> that song, by the way, is causing a commotion. >> great madonna classic. goes back a ways. >> now madonna is causing a commotion with the neighbors and with the d. opt -- d.o.t -- >> get it? neighbors in particular. although here everyone seems to be respecting that yellow paint. jessica formosa has more. >> this all started after a
madonna, and even though they are very irritated, what people don't know is this is actually her driveway. >> she's got the only double-decker two-car garage townhouse in the city, let her have her driveway too. >> it doesn't affect me whatsoever. as a matter of fact, i'm sure anybody parking in front of a driveway would get ticketed. >> the material girl is causing controversy. her $40 million townhouse on the upper east side is now decorated with these sign toes, tenant only. >> even though she put her own thing, it is a driveway. >> it turns out that her people did all of that, and they did it not allowed to do that. >> we reached out to the department of transportation who came out to inspect the property after receiving the complaint. it sent us this statement in part, quote: city rules do not allow for the defacement of sidewalks or illegal placement of signage.
some residents on the block expressed their feelings off camera saying what she has done is in poor taste. so that madonna had this to say on instagram. yes, i am madonna x that is my driveway. and if people park in front of me, i can't drive in my driveway. so sorry that the city doesn't like the color yellow. we will keep a nice dull gray to keep our neighbors happy. i'm saying three extra hail marys this easter for this transgression. >> we found the curb painted yellow in front of this garage. d.o.t. has notified madonna that she has 30 days to remove the imprinted no parking sign and the paint. if she doesn't, then she is subject to a violation, and that comes with a $250 fine. on the upper east side, i'm jessica formosa, fox 5 news. >> i take it all back, madonna is a victim here, seriously.
one more time, you know, if it's in front of just the garage, that's fine everybody knows you're not supposed to park in front of a driveway. >> maybe she's had issues in the past -- >> i don't care if you're on the upper east side, you can't park in front of somebody's garage, driveway. so good for madonna. and, again, she's not the only one who's done this with the paint, although the no parking imprint, that is varsity. >> i think madonna can afford $250, what do you think? >> who knows? she's touring relentlessly. >> i think she's got it. >> okay. well, what else is happening? >> well, coming up on good day new york in the 9:00 hour, the new york international auto show opens today, greg. >> so this car, as seen in smoky and -- what was that show? smoky and the bandit, that's right. look at that little thing. oh, but the doors open vertically. >> ooh, that is so cool. >> very small.
