U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand near the World Trade Center site with the NYC congressional delegation and Mayor de Blasio calling for reauthorization of the Zadroga Act.

It’s the anniversary of the day lane closures on the George Washington Bridge led to what eventually turned into Bridgegate. Matt Katz of WNYC and New Jersey Public Radio and WNYC’s Andrea Bernstein give updates on the ongoing investigations into the scandal. Plus: Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand on the old boys’ club atmosphere in the Senate; a thoroughly unscientific exit poll on NYS primary day; and Susan Olsen, the historian for Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx, uncovers hidden stories about the borough, the city and the country.
