But while the homeless are eager to grab up backpacks, some are less enthusiastic about getting a vaccine. With so few homeless people fully vaccinated, Newman fears the worst. As of the end of February, the New York City Department of Homeless Services documented 113 deaths of homeless people from Covid, 101 of whom died in shelters. To incentivize them, the group offers $25 McDonald’s gift cards, and volunteers share their own stories about getting the vaccine. The city is also working on getting more homeless vaccinated.

Download the NBC News app for breaking news and politicsThe company has now "generated evidence that a booster shot further increases protection against Covid-19," Dr. Paul Stoffels, J&J’s chief scientific officer, said in a statement Tuesday morning. People line up for Johnson & Johnson vaccines at the Broadway Junction subway station in Brooklyn, N.Y., in May. Vaccine effectiveness in the real world study varied by age. For those under age 60, the vaccine was 86 percent effective at preventing hospitalization versus 78 percent for those 60 and older.

The official residence of NYC mayoral nominee Eric Adams is once again in question. For a second time, he's changing his tax returns over his official residence, according to The City. However, The City's investigation found that Adams reported zero days spent at the property in tax returns filed after the primary. Instead, Adams will refile his tax returns for 2017, 2018, and 2019 after already amending them following the initial controversy. The decision to refile was made after The City contacted the Adams campaign about the irregularities, according to the report.

Day’Ron Sharpe ducked his head under the doorway instinctively and scanned his eyes across the apartment. In that moment, it didn’t matter that this brand-new building in Downtown Brooklyn was still coated in dust. It didn’t matter that he’d just taken an elevator that had insulation on the walls and plywood on the floor. All that mattered was this: He could imagine himself being at home in this apartment. Sharpe had been on his house-hunting journey for only an hour, and already he was behaving like a lifelong New York City apartment shopper.

Kellyanne Conway was brutally honest with Trump about his 2020 campaign missteps, per a new book. During the summer phone call, Conway reportedly told Trump to stop focusing on election grievances. But first, Conway told Trump that she wanted him to see her "as somebody else" and not just an advisor. The Trump 2020 campaign headquarters was in Arlington, Va., just minutes from the White House, while Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign was based in Brooklyn.

Fauci urges Americans not to get booster shots until they are eligible. Speaking on NBC’s Meet the Press, Dr. Fauci said Mr. Biden “wasn’t getting ahead of the science,” noting that the president always said the plan was dependent on authorization by the F.D.A. “They’re not being left behind by any means.” As more information comes in about how the original vaccines are working, Dr. Fauci said he expects to see the plan for boosters change. Dr. Fauci said the results from Moderna’s trial will likely come a few weeks later. Instead, it recommends that close contacts who have not been fully vaccinated quarantine for as long as 14 days.

A shopping cart is seen in a Target store in the Brooklyn borough of New York, U.S., November 14, 2017. The University of Michigan said its consumer sentiment index edged up to 71 in the first half of September from 70.3 in August - the lowest since December 2011. Assessments of current conditions slipped further, to 77.1 from 78.5 in August, while the survey's forward-looking expectations index ticked up to 67.1 from 65.1, which had been the lowest since 2013. "The steep August falloff in consumer sentiment ended in early September, but the small gain still meant that consumers expected the least favorable economic prospects in more than a decade," the survey's director, Richard Curtin, said in a statement. The survey's one-year inflation outlook ticked back up to 4.7% this month to match July's reading, which had been the highest since 2008, from 4.6% in August.

A Florida doctor and a medical consultant pleaded guilty this week to federal charges arising from a scheme to pressure hundreds of women to get their pelvic mesh implants removed. The effort was intended to increase the value of personal injury claims against the manufacturers of the medical devices. The two men pleaded guilty to violations of the federal Travel Act, a law that prosecutors have used to pursue charges of bribery in the health care profession. Dr. Walker, also 51, who pleaded guilty to two counts, could be sentenced to at least eight years when he appears before the judge in January. The scheme was one of the more unsavory sides of the mass tort case against a half-dozen manufacturers of pelvic mesh including Boston Scientific and Johnson & Johnson.

NIKI DE SAINT PHALLE IN THE 1960S De Saint Phalle’s moment continues with this show dedicated to her earliest “Tirs,” canvases she shot with a rifle, and her “Nanas,” the endearingly exaggerated female forms for which she’s best known. (Sept. 10-Jan. 23, 2022; the Menil Collection, Houston, menil.org)CHRISTIAN DIOR: DESIGNER OF DREAMS The North American premiere of a show that originated (naturally) in Paris has everything from his 1947 “New Look” to the present day, with photos, a “toile room,” more than 200 haute couture pieces and rooms devoted to all his successors as artistic directors. Its title is partly derived from Title IX, the federal law barring any educational program receiving federal funds from discriminating “on the basis of sex.” (Sept. 10-Jan. 9, 2022; Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, Conn., artgallery.yale.edu)REBEL, JESTER, MYSTIC, POET: CONTEMPORARY PERSIANS — THE MOHAMMED AFKHAMI COLLECTION” A survey of recent contemporary art from Iran and by Iranians.

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Crews searching for a missing man at Grand Canyon National Park made an unexpected discovery this summer. The park hasn’t been able to locate any immediate family but has talked with friends of Walsh, Baird said. Unintentional finds don’t happen often at Grand Canyon National Park, which covers 1,904 square miles (4,931 square kilometers) and is bigger than the state of Rhode Island. Eight people are still listed as missing from the Grand Canyon or last seen there over the past 10 years, Baird said. Sometimes, rafters on the Colorado River that flows through the Grand Canyon find them.

Together, they compiled a compelling list of books by, about and for Hispanic people whose stories are shaping today's culture.

Make some room on your bookshelf and crack open a fresh read this Hispanic Heritage Month.

“That option was more interesting than going to Hampton Inn,” Ms. Parsons said. Their relationship blossomed, and Mr. Latessa soon moved to New York, where the couple lived in a fifth-floor walk-up in Harlem, while he attended graduate school. Mr. Latessa, 32, a college counselor at a charter high school in East Harlem, is from the Cincinnati suburbs. Some friends had recently bought a place there, and Mr. Latessa was familiar with the area through his college admissions work, thanks to the area’s many high schools. They wanted to stay within walking distance of the 1 train, so they stuck to the southernmost part of Riverdale, Spuyten Duyvil.

“These letters succeed in acting as measures of coercive control, but they fail to undermine victims’ credibility at trial,” Ms. Penza said. “Juries see through these letters, especially when the prosecutors and witnesses provide context for the circumstances in which the letters originally came to be written.”Writing letters for Mr. Kelly was so routine, the woman who testified under a pseudonym told the jury, that Mr. Kelly would say “it was time for us to write letters,” and his live-in girlfriends would quickly set pen to paper. The singer, whose full name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, now faces charges regarding his sexual encounters with women and girls in several states. In Brooklyn, he is charged with one count of racketeering and eight violations of an anti-sex trafficking law known as the Mann Act.

Joan Washington, Dialect Coach to the Stars, Dies at 74

Joan Washington, an acclaimed dialect coach who taught Penélope Cruz to sound Greek, Jessica Chastain to sound Israeli and an entire cast of British actors to speak like Brooklyn Jews, died on Sept. 2 at her home in Avening, England. She was 74. Her husband, the actor Richard E. Grant, announced her death on Twitter. He later said the cause was lung cancer. She taught actors for most of Britain’s leading national and regional theaters; if a British performer appeared onstage speaking a thick American patois — say, in Neil Simon’s “Brighton Beach Memoirs” — there was a good chance it was Ms. Washington’s handiwork.

It may be a simple coincidence that the Brooklyn Museum unveiled a major Dior extravaganza, “Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams,” the week before the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute opens its fall show, “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.” But after two years of lockdowns and sweatpants, it seemed like fate. A fashion horn of plenty! In many ways the two shows are like opposite sides of a coin. One is an epic — 22,000-square-foot — and very glamorous ode to a single European brand, often considered the epitome of French fashion, which has passed through the hands of seven different designers. But together they raised some interesting questions for Vanessa Friedman, the chief fashion critic for The New York Times, and Zachary Woolfe, The Times’s classical music editor, about what kinds of garments belong in a museum, and the nature of a fashion exhibition compared to a runway show.

This is everyday life in New York City’s largest jail, despite Mayor Bill de Blasio’s vow to close it for good. Jails in communities have numerous advantages over a centralized facility on a difficult-to-access island. Whatever critics from the left or right may exclaim, New York is not going to go without jail cells. Mr. de Blasio first promised to close Rikers in 2017 — the last time he visited the island. It was a long-overdue fix meant to keep people from being locked up simply for being poor.

The first night I went out for real was the Friday before the Puerto Rican Day Parade. Don’t you promise me the world/All that I’ve already heard/This time around for me, baby/Actions speak louder than words.

I’d seen — even learned a little — the corresponding dance, which is low to the ground, athletic, forceful, exhausting.
