Whitney Museum of American Art, South-Western view, Meatpacking District.

At the opening of the new Whitney Museum, Michelle Obama challenged museums to be more welcoming and inclusive. WNYC art critic Deborah Solomon looks at how our local cultural institutions are doing. Plus: after police shot a hammer-wielding assailant on a busy Midtown street, Molloy College professor and former NYPD officer and captain John Eterno looks at when deadly force is appropriate; connecting the dots between the Amtrak derailment, our decaying infrastructure and transportation funding; a big picture view of how cities have evolved since the Great Recession; and our series on openings continues with a look at a new school opening in Brooklyn.
