This week on NYN: Sexual harassment hearing, Amazon pulls plug

Last Updated by Matt Ryan on

 

What a week it was in the Empire State.

Monday brought bad news for Andrew Cuomo as the latest Siena College poll showed his favorability number at 43%, his lowest since taking office in 2011. Also, the state legislature held it's first hearing on sexual harassment in the workplace in over 25 years and heard from a number of individuals who graphically described their stories involving lawmakers and legislative staffers. 

Finally, Amazon announced on Thursday they are pulling the plug on their plan to open up a second headquarters in New York City, setting off a verbal war between members of the Democratic Party.
