This week, a look at what the $85 billion in across the board cuts could mean for our area.
Plus, we continue our conversations with the candidates for mayor of New York City, as we sit down with Democrat Bill Thompson, who came within 4 points of beating Michael Bloomberg four years ago.

We'll show you how victims of Superstorm Sandy can use their tax returns to get some money back fast.
