- A body pulled from the Hudson River near the Bear Mountain Bridge in Cortlandt is believed to be that of the man wanted in connection with a Long Island murder who triggered a manhunt in Putnam County last week, according to LoHud.com.
- With the federal government shutdown reaching Day 3 on Thursday, many Westchester County residents said they have not yet felt much impact locally.
