Federal hearings are set to begin today on whether the Indian Point nuclear plant north of the city should remain open for another couple of decades.

Environmental groups and the state have assembled 10 challenges to Entergy Nuclear's application for new 20-year licenses for Indian Point's reactors.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has repeatedly found Indian Point is run safely but opponents, including Governor Andrew Cuomo, say it's unsafe to have a nuclear power plant so close to the city.

A final decision on the licenses could be years off.
