We begin a weekly series for the month of September on New York real estate with Lockhart Steele, publisher of the blog Curbed. Also, we get analysis of the Republican presidential debate as Fred Thompson makes his formal entrance into the race on TV and on the web; a civil liberties group issues a critical report about the NYPD's civilian complaint system; and Farm Aid comes to the Big Apple.
