Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Among the many things we are thankful for is the ability to spend Thanksgiving away from our desks and around a table filled with food, family, and friends. Also among them are you, our dear readers, who give us a reason to get up and report each day. We wish you a happy and bountiful holiday, and we’ll be back tomorrow with more news from around the borough.

Keep it local!
