    New York (CNN)New York City's wildlife is thriving, and that's thanks to devoted scientists and activists who have spent decades bolstering robust wildlife habitats in the city's five boroughs. Helen Forgione, Natural Areas Conservancy's senior ecologist, is one of those scientists. For more than 30 years, she's dedicated her career to restoring New York City's parks and natural, untouched green spaces. "In some cases, we're not really seeing animals coming back to New York, but we're seeing the right habitat for them to be more visible," she said. "We're also seeing animals moving around and looking for the right habitat ... They're finding the right kind of space for them to breed and live." New York is one of the most densely populated metropolitan areas in the country, but it's also the home to 30,000 acres of parkland -- 14% of the city -- teeming with wildlife, everything from skunks and deer, dolphins and seals off Staten Island, even Coyotes living in the wooded areas of Central Park.

    DENVER (CBS4) – People were out jogging and walking their dogs in Denver’s Central Park neighborhood Monday morning. It’s home to many families with young children and there are a number of schools in the area. It’s not the place where you would expect a bizarre and horrific crime would happen, but as CBS4 reported over the weekend, Thursday at around 11 a.m., someone stole a 20x15x18-inch box from a medical van containing human heads. The human remains were intended for medical research. “It’s the type of headline you might see on The Onion. I read it over and was like, is this real?” said Kevin Channell, who lives in the neighborhood. “I couldn’t wrap my mind around what you would do with something like that if you intentionally stole it,” Channell said. Karen Goodson also frequents the area. “It’s pretty weird and I thought it was horrible. I would donate body parts, and for someone to steal them steals from us all. And it desecrates these people,” said Goodson. Both are puzzled by what would compel someone to do...
    A MYSTERIOUS gold cube worth an estimated $11.7million appeared in Central Park on Wednesday morning accompanied by its very own security detail. The cube, composed of 186 kilograms of pure 24-karat gold, was rolled out in front of the famed Naumburg Bandshell at 5am in the morning surrounded by photographers and NYPD officers. 2Castello's cube in Central Park on Wednesday 2The block needed temperatures of more than 2,000 Fahrenheit to be cast The gold block is the creation of German artist Niclas Castello, who has branded it the "Castello Cube." The 410-pound work is not for sale but was used as publicity for the launch of accompanying cryptocurrency, the Castello Coin.

It was reportedly cast using a special handmade kiln as the sheer size and volume of the gold being used required extreme melting temperatures. In...
    TampaTomorrow / InstagramConstruction just began on St. Petersburg's massive Central Park food hall, and it’s not expected to open for about a year, but its first two culinary concepts have already been announced. Kojo (stylized "KOJO"), a modern Asian restaurant, and Speaks Clam Bar, a seafood-forward concept are the first of many eateries that will occupy the 24,000 square-foot, multi-story food hall at 551 Central Ave. Both of these restaurants are brought to St. Petersburg by Hi Hospitality—a group founded by food hall owner Natalia Levey. Both locations of Speak’s Clam Bar are in the greater Manatee area, so when Central Park debuts next year it’ll be St. Petersburg's first taste of the brand's fresh oysters, garlic lobster tails and crispy shrimp baskets. Head on down to Sarasota if you’d like to experience Kojo’s fusion menu that blends flavors from Japanese, Vietnamese and Chinese cuisine. Standouts on the menu include matcha chicken and waffles, Wagyu steak skewers, breakfast Banh Mi and its signature KOJO sushi roll stacked with spicy tuna, salmon, kabayaki, spicy mayo, cucumber and tempura bits.

    A suspect in a Central Park rape case showed off his ankle monitor on Instagram last month before he cut it off, skipped out on sex charges in Florida and fled to New York, where he allegedly choked and raped a jogger on Thursday.    Paulie Velez, 25, repeatedly posted pictures of himself in front of a full-length mirror on social media, showing the ankle monitor on his left foot.  'Locked up, they won't let me out,' Velez wrote in one of the photos, quoting a line from Akon's 2003 song 'Locked up,' which tells of a drug runner who is in jail.  Another picture also showing Velez's ankle monitor is captioned 'Life is VERY interesting.'  Just five weeks ago, Velez posted another picture of him, this time wearing white tennis shoes and long black pants possibly concealing the monitor.

    It was fowl play. Central Park's beloved barred owl, Barry, had 'potentially lethal' levels of rat poison in her liver when she flew into a truck and was killed last month, according to a necropsy report. The chemicals could have effected her motor skills, causing her to fly into the truck that hit her or preventing her from avoiding it, according to the report.  The state Department of Environmental Conservation report determined that the amount of rat killers bromadiolone and difethialone in Barry's system could have given her a 'fatal hemorrhage' even if she hadn't been hit. In a cruel twist of fate, the celebrity among Manhattan bird-watchers was killed when she 'made contact with' a Central Park Conservancy maintenance vehicle around 2.30 am on August 6, the non-profit announced on Twitter.  Barry was described in a November 2020 New York Times feature as 'a performer' who made 'regular daytime appearances' and was 'seemingly unfazed by adoring fans and the paparazzi, who have already made him Instagram-famous' It's unclear where the owl was poisoned - Central Park officials...

Youngblom was “a great department chair” and “one of the kindest people I’ve known,” David Evans, dean of the College of Science at Cal State Stanislaus, said in a statement. “He loved his job and worked incredibly hard. His focus was always on students. Our hearts go out to all [his] friends and family at this difficult time.” Students and peers described Youngblom as a kind, passionate educator whose dedication to teaching and his zest for being outdoors could be superseded only by his love for San Francisco Giants baseball. “I believe his passion for biology...

    Police are seeking information on a man who was caught on bystander video trying to steal a woman's iPhone in Central Park Friday morning Bystander video appears to show a brazen daylight mugging in Central Park on Friday as violent crime continues its spike in New York City.   A woman with a crutch beside her and her leg in a boot can be seen in the video sitting on a bench overlooking the Harlem Meer when the mugger strikes. Clad in a purple hooded sweatshirt and blue Yankees cap, he makes a move for the 40-year-old woman's iPhone. She tries to fight him off while hopping on one foot, but he punches her in the face with enough force to knock her hat to the ground, and he begins to run off with the phone.  A woman walking her dog is then seen sticking her leg out to trip him as he runs past, but is unsuccessful.  Not captured on camera, however, was the witness, police say, who confronted the mugger and retrieved the phone for the woman. ...
    A homeless shelter is to be created on one of New York City's most expensive streets, after a legal battle to prevent its opening ended in defeat. A New York state appeals court on Thursday dismissed the concerns voiced by a coalition of residents and businesses from the Manhattan neighborhood by Central Park, nicknamed Billionaire's Row. Billionaire's Row is not actually one street, or officially defined. Real estate agents describe it as an area south of Central Park, between 57th Street and 59th Street from north to south, and stretching from 8th Avenue in the west for eight blocks east to 2nd Avenue. Trump Tower is just to the south. Bill de Blasio, mayor of New York, launched an initiative called Turning the Tide, which aimed to create 90 homeless shelters across the city. One of the chosen sites was the Park Savoy Hotel, which closed permanently in 2018.

    Amy Cooper, the White woman who went viral last year for calling 911 to claim that a Black birdwatcher in Central Park was threatening her, has filed a lawsuit against her former employer. She temporarily surrendered her dog and was fired from her job shortly after the incident.  Amy Cooper, nicknamed "Central Park Karen," filed a federal complaint against investment firm Franklin Templeton on Tuesday, alleging both racial and gender discrimination in her termination. She also alleges the company did not properly investigate the incident, failing to take her personal safety into account before firing her and labeling her a racist.  "Franklin Templeton's alleged investigation and results provided legitimacy to the 'Karen' story, and appeared to provide justification for those who sought the destruction of the Plaintiff's life," the lawsuit says, despite the firm not naming Cooper in its statements.  The complaint alleges Cooper "suffered substantial loss of earnings and benefits and endured severe emotional distress, and will continue to do so in the future." The lawsuit, filed in the Southern District of New York, requests a jury trial....
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — You might not associate New York City with wildlife, but it’s a travel destination for bird watchers from all over the world, especially this month, during migrations.

    Central Park Five prosecutor Linda Fairstein has been intervening in criminal cases on behalf of her well-connected Martha's Vineyard friends and offering her former DA office colleagues positive press coverage, it has been revealed. A trove of never-before-seen emails between the former head of the sex crimes unit of the Manhattan District Attorney's office and her successor and good friend Martha Bashford were obtained by the Huffington Post through a public records request.   The 147 pages of emails, though heavily-redacted, show Fairstein weighing in on several cases involving New York's elite long after she left her position in 2002.   One email from 2012 shows the famed prosecutor telling Bashford she had received a call from 'one of my vineyard best friends' who was the 'lovely godfather' of disgraced doctor Adam Levinson. Fairstein writes that she 'promised' to 'talk' to an individual about the case to help the well-connected urologist who was caught using a hidden camera to film up women's skirts in a subway station. The revelations come after it previously emerged Fairstein had introduced Harvey Weinstein's lawyer Elkan Abramowitz to Bashford...
