Good Tuesday afternoon in New York City, where "Billy on the Street" has been back on the street. Here's what else is happening:

  • "You think Big Brother is watching you on the subway? You’re absolutely right," is how Gov. Kathy Hochul chose to announce an expanded pilot program putting security cameras on subway cars.
  • Mayor Eric Adams announced that when the private employer vaccine mandate ends, municipal workers will still be required to have their shots, a policy that Kyrie Irving quickly slammed as a human rights violation.
  • According to a new MTA rider survey, the D train is the worst line, while the L train is the best.

  • Who doesn't like a good pro-athlete-goes-undercover-at-a-tryout video? This one features Eli Manning at a Penn State walk-on tryout.
  • Brad Pitt is showing some of his ceramic art at a museum in Finland.
