Good Thursday morning in New York City, where the monkeypox vaccine van has finished its tour of duty. Here's what else is happening:

  • The NBC 4 I-Team discovered that the NYPD has increased arrests and tickets for filming cops with cellphones — a totally legal thing to do unless it "interferes" with law enforcement activity — at a far higher rate over the past year than apprehensions for other offenses.
  • A 22-year-old New Jersey man has been arrested for fatally shooting four black bear cubs in Passaic County, this coming several weeks before the state plans to grant a short window for legal bear hunting. (Shooting bears under 75 lbs. would still be illegal under the bear hunting rules.)
  • Right-to-repair advocates do not like the New York City Council bill that would ban the reuse of lithium ion e-bike batteries.
  • New York State health inspectors found dead moths in a coffee storage area and crusty old food on a matcha stirrer during a recent inspection at the Starbucks Reserve shop in Chelsea.

  • Jenna Bush Hager doesn't wear underwear.
