Two dozen Catholic schools to close

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

The Archdiocese of New York has released the list of 22 elementary schools and two secondary that will close after June 2013.

Local boards and the ad hoc Reconfiguration Committees, after talks with local pastors, principals, administrators, and elected officials, finalized the list.

"Affected families will be welcomed in neighboring Catholic schools, and every effort will be made to assist those who are facing financial challenges making the transition," the archdiocese said in a news release.

"The Archdiocese is not alone in facing financial challenges in education—we share these issues with public, private and other faith-based schools across the country," Timothy Cardinal Dolan, the archbishop of New York, said in a statement. "This reconfiguration process will help ensure that our schools will be financially stable, sustainable and, more importantly, open to all students."

    A Brooklyn woman who is seven months pregnant released photos that she said show an NYPD officer putting her in a choke hold as she was being arrested for grilling on the sidewalk outside her home.  Rosean Miller was arrested for disorderly conduct on Saturday and her husband Moses was arrested for obstructing government business, a criminal charge. It's the latest in a string of reported choke holds by police officers. The move is not allowed under NYPD policy.

    A New Jersey Transit commuter train that became disabled just outside the Hudson River tunnel in Manhattan on Tuesday has been removed. 1,000 passengers were on board when the Northeast Corridor train became stuck, according to NJ Transit officials. A rescue train was attached to the disabled train and removed to Penn Station about an hour behind schedule. It is not clear what caused the mechanical problem. There are residual delays on NJT trains into and out of Penn Station.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
