The COVID-19 pandemic has crippled New York City’s street vendors. With foot traffic slowed to a crawl in many neighborhoods, vendors are struggling to make ends meet, and some have decided not to return to the streets because the dollars and cents just don’t add up.

WFUV'S CITYSCAPE talked with Mohamed Attia, Director of the Street Vendor Project, along with Ahmed Ebrahim, a hot dog vendor at New York’s Rockefeller Center and Alex Simon-Fox, a program officer with Stavros Niarchos Foundation. The global philanthropic organization has partnered with the Street Vendor Project to employ street vendors to cook and distribute meals to communities in Brooklyn and the Bronx.

Is the Doll Parts event going to happen tonight?
I've been working on this story about special education services in NYC public schools with Patricia Piedra and Lukas since last month. All parents are concerned about their children's education, but when parents feel like the odds are stacked against them, their battle can be that much harder. So even though its summer, Patricia is still working to make sure Lukas is getting the services he needs when he transitions from pre-k to kindergarten in the fall.

By Shaun King... This is the most important professional moment of my life. I am starting a new 5 part series called SOUL SNATCHERS: How the NYPD’s 42nd Precinct, the Bronx DA’s Office, and the City of New York Conspired to Destroy Black and Brown Lives. What I’m about to tell you is the most painful, traumatic, outrageous, outlandish, over-the-top story of government sanctioned police brutality, wrongful imprisonment, wrongful convictions, forced testimony, widespread corruption, money, lots of money, and deep, deep, deep soul-snatching psychological abuse in modern American history. I would not have believed it had I not seen it all for myself. The rabbit hole I am about to take you down is deep and twisted. It should lead to the termination of a whole host of officials. Many should be arrested and a comprehensive independent investigation should begin immediately.
