The number of vaccinated NYPD employees increased to 85 percent following Friday’s deadline to get at least one dose or face unpaid leave starting today. 

“We think we're in really, really strong shape here,” said NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea during a press conference today. “Members of the Police Department responded to this, they came to work as they always do, and there is literally no effect on service at this point.” 

Mayor de Blasio on Thursday was sticking by his promise to enforce his Nov. 1 vaccination mandate against frontline city employees, apparently daring those who are unhappy to quit.

In a transcript of his daily press conference, the mayor made the suggestion in response to a question on possible dissatisfaction within the ranks of the DSNY.

The 9/11 Run for Richie motorcycle ride proceeded Saturday afternoon from the Aqueduct Racetrack to One World Trade Center, escorted by the NYPD and FDNY.

The ride, organized by the Punishers Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club, honors the memory of Richard Pearlman, a Howard Beach resident and ambulance corps volunteer who had been delivering papers at One Police Plaza for the law firm where he worked as a clerk, when the terrorist attack occurred.

Community leaders and residents of Maspeth have been trying for eight years to get the city to landmark the FDNY firehouse on 68th Street, which saw 19 of its members killed in the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center.

It was the largest loss from any single firehouse in the city that day. The city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission has balked since 2013, citing a lack of historic architectural value in the 1914 building; and that the 9/11 attacks still do not meet its criteria of being at least 30 years in the past.
