Adventures of Bailey the Dog, Crown Heights versus Clinton Hill, New Library, Mental Health, Food Tips, and more

New York passed stricter gun laws, the first Democratic gubernatorial debate was on Tuesday, and primaries are just a few weeks out. A dog from Brooklyn made headlines for his adventures escaping to New Jersey. A DSA-backed Assemblywoman is looking to get reelected in a district where its poorer residents want the DSA members to "put up, or shut up," a Councilwoman wants to make Open Streets safer and more this week.
