7:13 am
yesterday's running is from a different case in 2009. a mother arrested for beating her kid in the car, it wasn't hot and windows were slightly opened. the supreme court unanimously sided with that mother indicating some cases can be legal considering time, temperature, distance from the parent and other factors. greg: this footage we are looking at was illegal because it was so hot that day. listen to this. >> i would be nervous for the child to be alone in a car. >> if the child was left on the sidewalk alone, that would mean they are abandoned. to me that is a crime. rosanna: the court said other parents or guardians with similar charges must be allowed to hearing. if the child was not harmed. we don't know how this last case is going to go but anyway point. greg: let's go to times square, nude women walking around, have they figured out a solution? is there a legal way to rid them

7:15 am
this issue with. right now the laws in place don't give us all the enforcement capacity i think we deserve. >> reporter: some options being considered, designating the area as the park or treating the performers as businesses so they one idea suggested by bill brennan would be to get rid of the pedestrian plaza in times square and restore traffic to the neighborhood. >> i preferred to take the whole thing down and put it back where it was, broadway's broadway and not a dead end 3. >> we talked about that option. that will be considered by the task force. that is a very big endeavor and like every other option comes with pros and cons so we are going to look at what those pros and cons will be. >> reporter: not everyone is on board. the times square alliance told the daily news', quote, sure, let's tear up broadway. we can't govern, manage or police public spaces so we should tear them up.
7:16 am
that is not a solution, it is us surrender. a bit more about this pedestrian plaza in times square. was closed to traffic in 2009 as a temporary move and became permanent the following year. the mayor's taskforces is scheduled to release its findings at the beginning of october. the mayor says the nypd will keep a close eye on these win in making sure there is no illegal activity happening. the latest from times square this morning. greg: they have been out there couple years. what is the big deal? rosanna: there are more of them. you would see one or two, now there's a whole slew of topless people there and if you are taking your kid to a movie are around there or a broadway show you may not want to expose them to is this. greg: i have been through there and some people seem delighted. i have never seen an incident around there. i am neutral on it. we did meet these girls earlier this week, they were nice, hard-working and what they're
7:17 am
doing right now is within the law. hi don't know. it looks like -- momentum is against them. rosanna: how do we feel about the pedestrian plaza be eliminated? go to our web page at way in. you know how i feel? i never liked it because i felt the traffic was still a real pain in that area and when it was time to go if you were going to the theater it was so clogged up with a lot of the costume characters and everybody else you could navigate the sidewalk. you could not navigate the sidewalk. greg: okay. i am all right. rosanna: you weigh in. i don't know. greg: how about the snake? they found the snake in times square. these cops did. rosanna: it is up boa constrictor.

7:33 am
drier air comes toward us, high pressure pushes in and we will see more sunshine coming through as time goes on but the area of low pressure on this frontal boundary is stalling out over the weekend so what it will do is throwbacks moisture as we head into sunday and that will bring us a chance of a few more light showers in the area but i don't think there will be too much happening with that. here is your forecast for the day. after the morning showers get out of your central and eastern sections of long island and connecticut you still have more rain to deal with and we will see more sun and high of 85. we will see sunny skies, 86 yen, your high tomorrow with storms, make that sunday but normally a few here and there. another shot at showers on tuesday. let's bring in ines rosales and take a look what happens to the commute.

8:04 am
islip and 37 in montauk -- 77 in montauk. kind of a mild start to the day, and the drier air will be working in. cold front keeps pressing offshore, and then it gets stuck just offshore, and we are going to have a chance for a few showers just kind of lingering in the tristate region. he's the cold front coming offshore, and it's hanging tight with that area of low pressure helping to hold onto that front, and then it tries to throw back a little bit of action as we get into sunday. saturday looks nice and sunday, but sunday looks like a few showers could pop back in again. for today, most of the rain is gone for the city and jersey, but you will see clearing skies and a high of 85 later this afternoon. tomorrow it's sunny with a high of 86. 83 on sunday with a few more shower chances, but it doesn't look like anything major, another round of scattered showers on tuesday.
8:05 am
a little of this, a little of that. let's get over to ines rosales, there's still some problems. >> still some issues with flooding and some earlier accidents. flooding southbound by exit 98, we have an accident still trying to be cleared away since early this morning on the outer bridge, staten island bound, the offramp toward the west shore still closed because of a flipped-over car. you can see delays go back to the brooklyn bridge. two lanes are flooded, southbound an accident just cleared away on the fdr drive by the triborough bridge. northern state parkway all lanes are closed because of flooding. you can see the water standing here. this is at 106/107, so before you approach that exit eastbound and westbound, all lanes are closed. the lie, that's what everyone's using. and problems with the trains east of westbury. you have a 25 minute delay on the port jefferson, oyster bay and hempstead branches.

greg and rosanna. >> thank you so much. >> so there was an explosion at a high school in the bronx. kind of mysterious. they were doing some construction, and a huge explosion. you can see some class rooms blown out, and several injuries. >> yeah. three contractors got injured at jfk high school. it happened during construction of a science lab at the school, and by the way, that explosion could be felt in the area. fox 5's robert moses in the marble hill section with more this morning. robert, what's going on? >> greg and rosanna, you mentioned that it could be felt in the area, that is absolutely true. i just is talked to a map who rents an participant -- a man who rents an apartment nearby and he said this impact was of greater or magnitude than anything he's ever felt, i'll step out of the way because you can see the end result. that is a gashed building, blown-out windows and classrooms in serious need of repair. from are the ground the damage to the sixth floor of john
8:07 am
236789 kennedy -- john f. kennedy high school is easily visible, the result of violent explosion shortly after eight last night. >> we saw a quick flash and then a large explosion. everything shook. >> custodians just aen and his coworker were outside the explosion occurred. >> i was just ability to go back up to the sixtieth floor to go to work. i could have been caught up in that, which is very scary. >> three private contractors were doing work to improve the school's science labs when the explosion rocked the building and the surrounding neighborhood. one of the custodians said he heard the contractors were using a blow torch. >> like a typical science lab, it has a bunch of burners, so it has gas supply. smelling gas. >> one of the three contractors, serious burns. the oh men who police say are 38 burns.
8:08 am
all are expected to survive. the men were working for a contractor that the mayor declined to name but one which the mayor said has a good reputation. >> this building has been seriously damaged, although the structural damage is very limited. >> another live look at that building. there's been a steady stream of people showing up here at the school trying to get into the parking lot, and they -- can like we -- have been turned away because of officials now want to make sure that everything inside is safe. clearly from the video that you saw those classrooms will need to be repaired. there are office of emergency managementinging representatives here and others as well who will be assessing the damage inside of those class rooms, and september 9th. that is the latest live from to you. >> robert, thank you very much.
8:09 am
marble hill, it's kind of interesting, rosanna, it's right here, right about here, and technically, believe it or not or, it's part of manhattan. you have manhattan here, the the bronx, but this little area, marble hill, politically is part of manhattan -- >> even though the harlem river is separating snit. >> right. a long time ago the harlem river actually went up here, and it was filled in. the residents wanted to are e main part of -- wanted to remain part of manhattan, so technically, robert moses is not on manhattan island. >> i'm following you, which scares me. [laughter] anyway, let's talk about police. they need your help finding the woman they said went ballistic when someone asked her to move her bag off a subway street. >> another straphanger asked her to move her bag so she could sit down. the person ignored her. when the other woman went to sit
8:10 am
down, police say she pushed her, scratched her, pulled her hair and bit her on the arm. >> wow. >> there was blood. >> she then ran off the train at the 21st street queens bridge station. if you know this woman, if you've seen her, please call crimestoppers at 1-800-577-tips. >> remember those guys who escaped from prison in upstate new york? one of them is dead, the other is in even more trouble. there he is, david sweat, at a court proceeding. they're prosecuting him for the escape and other offenses. >> yeah. his arm is in a sling, still recovering from two gunshot wounds. mr. sweat faces two counts of escape and one count of promoting prison contraband stemming from the hacksaw blades prosecutors say he and fellow inmate richard matt used to cut their way out of clinton correctional fundamental. mr. sweat is already serving a life sentence so why the new charges and a new trial? the prosecutor said this:
8:11 am
>> david sweat and richard matt committed a crime in clinton county, they committed the crime of escape in the first degree, and it's my job as a prosecutor in this county to prosecute people that commit crimes within this county. and that is the bottom line. >> negotiate with the da's office. i'm not sure if a plea deal's going to be coming around or not. >> it determines how he'll spend his time in prison. there's richard matt. he was shot by state troopers, i believe, and they determined he was drunk at the time. that captivated the whole country for a couple of weeks, the escape of these two. >> apparently, this next story is blowing up our fox 5ny facebook page. it seems like the mayor is trying to figure out a way to stop the topless women in times square. >> one proposal is to to get rid of the pedestrian plaza. is that too much? >> i don't know. it's a possible solution to the issue.
8:12 am
carry drew is in times square with the latest this morning. what's going on, carrie? >> good morning to both of you. the big question right now, what can be done about all of these top toless women that are here in times square? one proposal is calling for the removal of this whole area behind me, this 30,000 square foot pedestrian plaza where women wearing only body paint are charging money to pose for pictures. >> i am unhappy with some of what's happening in times square related to the costume characters and the painted women. >> so mayor de blasio has appointed a task force to study the problem. he says police commissioner bill bratton and city law headachiers will -- lawmakers will look into ways to address the growing number of topless women in times square. >> the goal of the task force is to give me more tools to work on this issue with. right now the laws in place don't give us all the
8:13 am
enforcement capacity i think we deserve. >> some options being considered, designating the area as a park or treating the performers as businesses so they can be regulate ared. one idea suggested by police commissioner bill bratton would be to get rid of the pedestrian plaza in times square and restore traffic to the neighborhood. >> i think we ought to just dig the whole damn thing up and put it back where broadway is broadway is and not a dead end street. >> that option will be considered by the task force. now, that's a very big endeavor, and like every other option comes with pros and cons, so we're going to look at what those pros and cons would be. >> not everyone is onboard. tim thompkins of the times square alliance told the daily news quote, sure, let's tear up broadway. we can't govern, manage or police our public spaces, so we should just tear them up. that's not a solution, it's a surrender. a live look once again at this pedestrian plaza.
8:14 am
a look down broadway here between 42nd and 47th streets. the pedestrian plaza has been closed to traffic since 2009. initially, it was done as a temporary thing, and then it became permanent in 2010. the mayor's task force, as i mentioned, is scheduled to come up with its findings by the first of october. a lot of attention on this issue. greg and rosanna, back to you. >> thanks a lot, carrie. our viewers are weighing in via our facebook page. >> don says, gonna shut down the whole plaza? like naked women can walk other places? what's next? union square. shaking my head. >> so smh, that's what that means. what about christa white? >> anyone that don't want to see it don't need to go. if you know that's what's going on and you don't want to see, why go? that's the beauty of new york state times square, whoever can go to see entertainment including the street characters and now these painted topless ladies. >> thanks, christa.
8:15 am
speaking of those characters, rosanna and i, i tell you what, this was highlight of my life when i was big bird and you were elle hoe. >> it was nice to feel anonymous. go there and frolic -- [laughter] >> how much money did we make that day? it was a lot. >> $1.99. >> good stuff. >> what about that college student who took a selfie after climbing to the top of the brooklyn bridge? he has been charged with trespassing. >> they found him, back in new york city yesterday to face charges. they actually arrested him in tennessee. there was a warrant out for husband arrest. he shouldn't have been there, obviously. that's trespassing. >> what was he thinking? >> okay. i know, you see that up there, you think, oh, my gosh, is he going to jump? >> he had to know it was a little reckless. he had to be scared, right? his lawyer told the post the student didn't know there was a warrant out, and a phone call to him would have been easier.
8:16 am
this young man is back in court september 31st. >> antwan lewis is joining us, he usually anchors in the evenings on the weekends. antwan, what's new with ashley madison? >> we've been talking about this for a while, of course, the adultery web site. employees have been checking out the site using their government internet connections, but now we understand there's a new york city connection. city officials have turned over more than two dozen e-mail addresses of employees of the education department associated with ashley madison. the, the oe is among the first local agencies nationally revealed. as we've been reporting, more than 20 federal agencies had accessed the site through government internet corrections including the u.s. state department as well as the pentagon where so many civilian and military employees have security clearances and could be wide open for blackmailing. >> i'm aware of it.
8:17 am
of course it's an issue because conduct is very important, and we expect good conduct on the part of our people. >> for people in the military, if you are determined to be a philanderer, you could end up being in prison for a year, dishonorably discharged, you could be the target of an extortion plot, you could also have your security clearance in jeopardy. even if you're a defense contractor, they have security clearances. >> now, that gentleman actually has the private security or company. regarding the city education department, the mayor's office confirms there are suspected e-mail addresses that were turned over to the conflicts of interest board. a spokesperson saying they take seriously allegations of misuse of city resources. getting very, very close to home here, greg and rosanna, back over to you. good to see you. >> nice to see you, antwan. okay. 8:17 in the morning. let's check out what's happening outside, mike woods.
8:18 am
>> things are getting better for us around the tristate, and that rain was really coming down at times. looks like jfk is going to be the big winner in terms of totals, just under 2.5 inches of rain came down in a pretty short period of time. jericho, just over two inches. you can see why it is we saw some localized flooding. central park, it only ended up being just other a quarter of an inch of rain. so it really depends on where you are, but it was primarily around nassau county, queens and brooklyn that sow the heavier showers and storms. your not done yet in suffolk county, but the intensity is backing down can. 72 in central park, 75 in philly, 70 in boston and 66 in syracuse, and we are going to see the drier air sliding into the tristate region. that means we've got more sunshine coming up soon. as a matter of fact, we start off with some showers and storms or at least we already did in the city.
8:19 am
still dealing with it out east, but mostly sunny sky ises this afternoon, highs between 82 and 86, about 85 for us here in the city. lows dropping down between 58-70, and there's your seven-day forecast. dry for you tomorrow, that's the best looking day of the weekend right now, a few isolated showers on sunday, mainly in the east. got a quick birthday shoutout to caprice rose. have a fantastic birthday. check out the fox 5ny worth app, check it out for free. let's bring in ines and see what's up with the commute. we're doing better, hopefully? >> a little. some flooding out there on the northern state parkway. take a look at the delay, traffic backed up to the meadowbrook traveling eastbound, all lanes closed at 106/107, and i'll show you a live picture, but i want to show you the lie. not as bad, everyone's trying to
8:20 am
use that as an alternate. southern state parkway, normal delays. westchester, we're doing pretty good. you have a lot of these little excha haitians, there was an accint heading towards the merit, that's just been cleared away. a little bit of that delay, but no flooding. let's show you that northern state parkway there, that's the reasons why traffic is so jammed up, everyone's trying to get off at 106/107, the road is completely flooded eastbound and westbound. gwb's looking good, no delays. lincoln tunnel, also a delay of 20 minutes, normally at time it's 45-50. long island railroad, because of the rain, there's a high water condition, so there's a 25 delay on the port jefferson, oyster bay and hempstead branches. everything else running on our close. >> she is delighted by a 20 minute delay. >> at the lincoln tunnel at this time? yes.
8:21 am
>> hey, one of the most famous attorneys in the country, gloria allred, will be here in a few minutes. >> all right, times square, we're looking at it. will changes be made to times square? what's her name? >> who's this? >> grace feel like a kid again with dunkin's new cookie-flavored iced coffees. for a limited time, dd perks members can enjoy any sized iced coffee for $1.99. america runs on dunkin'.
8:24 am
>> hi, everybody. uber, they seem to be taking over the world. a new service, rosanna, food delivery. they call it uber eats. >> they just started running here in new york city between 14th and 59th street, limited delivery. uber pairs with select restaurants in the area, offers just maybe one or two items from a menu and gets customers the food in ten minutes or less. >> so it comes in a car, not some guy on a bike. >> that's right. and with uber returns, this is another feature, a driver will collect whatever you ordered on line but now want to return, and they'll take care of dropping it off at the post office, fedex, ups. it's a $4 pickup charge. >> that's it? >> the service is operating
8:25 am

8:26 am
and conocophillips. they hire people to go find oil, to refine it, to sell it. their stock prices, as a business how do you compete when you can't make money off of that raw product? so these are some of the issues that the economy is facing, and it's been such a rough week for your own investments. i know, my driver in to work this morning was asked me about his 401(k). regular people are talking about this stuff. it's an -- not a flattering picture. >> you know what's cool? >> yeah. >> dud you see the money being printed at the manipulate? >> in the video? >> i used to think that it grew on trees. [laughter] >> you can probably think that, rosanna. i do sometimes. >> now i though. >> all right. thank you very much. >> have a good weekend. >> it's worth a tour of the treasury department where they make the money. coming up, gloria allred, one of the most famous attorneys in the world, she's representing -- >> so many women have gone to her. they're talking about bill cosby and the terrible experience they

[laughter] she's like, i got no time for that, i gotta get this bill. >> see if you can find my dignity while you're down there. >> a simple ground wall to second base became a triple -- [laughter] the guy got to third base on that. he should have been thrown out at first. >> i should have thrown the two of them out of the game. that was an error you made. anyway --? >> oh, please. >> anyway, we're going to talk to peter rosenberg from hot 97, and he's got his own gripes. i don't know if i'm in the mood for him this morning. [laughter] kind of short, that's it. >> cut him down. [laughter] >> he's coming after you too, you know that, rights? >> i can take him on. >> uh-huh. we're ready. yeah, good looking weather coming to us here but, man, that
8:33 am
rain was really coming down especially through the city and parts of long island, and i believe we got a shot out from wood mill coming up for us too, but that's where the rain is on the radar. there's woodmill, and you can see looks like the rain is start ising to move out of the area but, boy, it did come down for a while. that's what we want, we want the clouds to break up into the weekend and the run to get out of town. looks beautiful there now, right? absolutely. just a few showers left over for you. all right, let's take a look at the maps, show you what's happening right now. showers still cruising through mainly in the eastern half of long island. connecticut, looks like those showers are breaking up for you as well. for a while it was really coming down, especially through that is saw county, brooklyn and queens, that's where they had some localized flooding. things are much better. 76 in islip and bridgeport. it's still muggy, but the dewpoints will be coming down. it's down to 66 which is still a high thurm, but better than the
8:34 am
lower 70s like they still have in the central and eastern sections of long island. the air will get a little better as the cold front continues to head to the east and carries a lot of that moisture out to see. high pressure will build in, and we're going to see decent conditions starting later on this afternoon, smart. there's the cold front getting out of town. and we're going to see a lot of sun shine today into tomorrow. a few clouds in the mix but still not bad at all. as we go into sunday, see this area of low pressure getting stuck along that stalled-out frontal boundary? that's going to start throwing back maybe a few showers, especially for the eastern half of long island and over into connecticut. our temps may come down just a hair. all right, so today we've got mainly sunny skies later in the afternoon, most of the showers moving on, high temp up to about 85 today. tomorrow sunny skies with a high sunday. there.
8:35 am
drier on monday but then early on tuesday another front passes by with a few more scattered storms coming through. all right. let's bring in ines. ines needs to chime in here, because you know there's a battle coming up. >> yeah. you've got to see pete rosenberg's tweet, he's going to milk it. now his neck hurts. >> oh, really? >> this is going to get good. >> i'm going to get gloria allred, she's on set. >> that rain did leave slow spot, northbound fdr drive approaching grant street because of flooding. still working on an accident, route 440 northbound still closed because of a flipped-over car and the northern state parkway by 106/107, the road completely flooded, so they had to shut that down right at 7:00. so traffic backed up both directions as you approach 106/107 eastbound and westbound. long island railroad also affected, there's a 25 minute
8:36 am
delay on the port jefferson and ronkonkoma branches, they're all making local stops. >> thank you very much. bill cosby, at one point one of the most popular men in america. the allegations against him, dozens of women with tales of sexual abuse, assault, rape committed by bill cosby. yesterday we saw new alleged victims coming forward teaming awl red. they spoke powerfully about what they said happened to them. listen. >> we went to a restaurant. cos had told me he was staying at the beverly hilton. he arrived at the restaurant before me. i did not drink or use drugs. but he insisted i drink sake. it was already poured for me. i sipped it, but it was too sweet. he insisted i drink it and loosen up. >> this is elizabeth, and lots of people are talking about what she had to saw yesterday.
8:37 am
morning. thank you for being with us. >> thank you for inviting me. >> tell us about elizabeth and how she contacted you and how you kind of verified her story. >> well, i mean, i've represented -- i'm representing now 23, 25 women, many more who have not yet spoken out have been contacting me. some may speak out, some just want to contact me to give me information that may help in the one lawsuit that we have on behalf of judy who alleges that she was 15 years old when she became the victim of sexual misconduct by mr. cosby at the playboy mansion. others say they'll speak out if and when they're subpoenaed and could testify in this case can. >> but these two latest women -- >> these two latest women contacted me. many people contact me by e-mail, some by telephone. i speak to them, and then he make an evaluation. look, for them it's too late to file a lawsuit because of the statute of limitations.
8:38 am
the arbitrary time period set by law. it's too late for mr. cosby to be criminally prosecuted even if a district attorney would find that that, they thought that that case could be proven beyond a reasonable doubt because the statute of limitations. but there's no statute of limitations on the right of free speech, so they are speaking out in the court of public opinion, they are giving what they say is their truth, and they have every right to do it. >> now that they've done it, what next? i would imagine that you're looking for a settlement here, right? >> well -- >> he's worth, some estimates, close to a billion dollars. >> woo we're looking -- what we're looking for, greg, is accountability and justice. these women have gone from being survivors the fighters for change, and they just want accountability. and we're going to get it in whatever form that we can get it. >> what are some options? >> well, i gave mr. cosby all the options possible. one, he could invite all of the women who accuse him to sue him in a court of law, and he could agree not to assert the statute
8:39 am
of limitations in which case a judge and jury could decide the case. he he rejected that. i offered him the arbitration option, behind closed doors with a retired judge, present his evidence, present the defense's. again, he rejected that. and the third option, mediation, a negotiated settlement. again, he rejected that. what can the women do? they can speak out. they have a right to voice what they say is their truth. >> and each one, is there a similar thread? i guess the drugging is the similar thread with all these ladies? >> of the women are -- many of the women are alleging drugging and sexual assault. some just is sexual assault. that's bad enough, of course. and in the case of judy, the it's a serious allegation also of child sexual abuse. and we are taking it seriously. is so when we take mr. cosby's deposition -- >> when is that going to be? >> on october 9th. we expect to take the can deposition of bill cosby, not
8:40 am
the friendly dr. huxtable on television. this is not a sitcom, it's real life, and we're not laughing. >> has anyone reached out to you what? their story is not credible. >> there have been some women who have reached tout me that, you know, for a variety of reasons we have decided that it would be best for them not to go public, but i don't tell women to speak out or not speak out. what i do is i present the benefits versus the risks, and then they are adults. they can make their own invested decision as to whether or not they want to voice what they say happened to them. >> so you'll be in the same room >> that's correct. >> what's your strategy? >> well, you know, in any deposition we have a right to ask any questions that may be relevant and that may tend to admissible evidence. so that's what we are going to do. we would hope that mr. cosby would welcome the opportunity because he has been silent publicly to be able to give his
8:41 am
side of the story, to give it truthfully and to give a full accounting of what his position will be so that we can adequately prepare for trial trial. >> what's the most important question that you hope he answers? >> well, i can't preview the questions, but i can say that every question we ask will be important. and, of course, it wouldn't be surprising to his attorneys if there were questions about other accusers, other accusations. but, you know, we'll have to see, and the point is that he is going to gulf his deposition -- give his deposition. we've been attempting to take his deposition for quite a while. there has been an attempt to block this case from moving forward. we have been able to schedule his deposition, and now we're going to move forward. and then our client will give her deposition not long thereafter. >> gloria allred, we thank you, and we'll see what happens next. >> thank you. >> appreciate it. all right, good day new york's going to take a quick
