The Road Ahead: Part 2

The Road Ahead: Part 3

With so many businesses shut down, will our neighborhood downtowns rebuild?

When will we see Broadway shows again?

Also, could this year of stress and change have a long-term impact on our health?

With so much to dissect, any discussion about reopening and getting into this so-called 'normal,' revolves around one thing - the vaccine.

On Sunday, the nation set a new record for vaccinations in a single day, but there is still a long way to go. 22.5% of New York residents have gotten one dose, and more than 11% are fully vaccinated. In New Jersey, nearly 24% of people have partial protection, and 12% have completed the inoculation. And in Connecticut, 26% of people have at least one shot at 26%, while just under 14% are fully vaccinated.
