You know that Labor Day is approaching when … no one is left in town to make or report the news.

No big story emerged yesterday.

Mayor Adams even took the time to make unscheduled remarks at the first official tour of City Hall since the pandemic, at which he revealed to the tourists that he was in fact, a Crystals Guy.

Later, the mayor watched Serena Williams win her match at the U.S. Open (see the photo above with Mike Tyson).
