    Dolphins are making their way into the iconic New York skyline as the city's rivers are now cleaner than at any point since the Civil War, according to environmental experts.  Anthony Obas, a Harlem resident, was lingering along the East River at the lower Manhattan waterfront when he saw a dolphin appear, The Wall Street Journal reported. 'I was like, that's a dolphin,' he told the paper. 'Oh no! In the dirtiest river in New York?'  Recent improvements in the city's water, however, have made the waterways safer for dolphins and their food supply, and in turn increased sightings of the aquatic mammals, scientists say. 'The harbor and connected waterways are cleaner today than they have been since the Civil War,' NYC Environmental Protection spokesperson Ted Timbers told Dailymail.com.

    Dr. MIke's $320,000 Lamborghini was taken for a joy ride across NYC by a parking attendant at his building A New York City parking garage attendant took a five-hour joy ride in a $320,000 Lamborghini Urus owned by a physician who was once named the 'sexiest doctor alive.'  Dr. Mike, whose real name is Mikhail Varshavski, purchased the Lambo last September and was apparently keeping it in a monitored garage at his apartment building in Manhattan's Hudson Yards neighborhood. The attendant stole Varshavski's car from the garage earlier this month, in the wee hours of the morning, and drove it 'all over New York City,' a source told The New York Post.  A NYPD license plate check discovered the driver rode through Staten Island and on the Verrazzo-Narrows Bridge and the Williamsburg Bridge.  Officials only learned about the thief's spin around the city after residents tried to access their vehicles and the attendant was nowhere to be found. 'The reason that they caught him was because other people came to get their cars and there was no one there,' the source...

    NEW YORK (AP) — This time, Barry Manilow didn’t make it through the rain. Unlike the Grammy-winning recording artist’s 1980 hit, “I Made It Through Rain,” the superstar-laden “Homecoming Concert” in New York City’s Central Park was canceled because of dangerous weather as Hurricane Henri approached the Northeast on Saturday. Manilow began performing “Can’t Smile Without You,” as part of a medley of his hits when the announcement interrupted his performance, ordering concert goers to immediately leave the park and seek shelter. The singer continued on, not realizing at first what was happening. Organizers repeated over public address for concertgoers to “calmly move to the nearest exits and proceed to areas outside of the park.” The five-hour concert, intended to celebrate New York City’s recovery from the coronavirus pandemic, was about halfway through when the weather became an issue. Heavy rain and lightning filled the sky. As the crowd — estimated at more than 60,000 — began leaving the concert area, there was a moment of optimism that the show might resume once the weather cleared. But a few minutes later, another...
    (CNN)In a December 2016 article for The Architect's Newspaper, journalist Audrey Wachs noted a glaring issue with the Vessel, the 150-foot-tall tourist attraction that was set to open in New York City's gleaming new Hudson Yards neighborhood."As one climbs up Vessel, the railings stay just above waist height all the way up to the structure's top," she wrote, "but when you build high, folks will jump."That warning has proved tragically prescient. Last week, a 14-year-old died by suicide at the climbable structure -- the fourth such fatal incident since the landmark opened to the public in March 2019."We are heartbroken by this tragedy and our thoughts are with the family of the young person who lost their life," Hudson Yards spokesperson Kimberly Winston said in a statement. "We are conducting a full investigation. The Vessel is currently closed."It's the second time the Vessel has closed due to suicides. In January, after the third death, the Vessel closed for several months and reopened in May with new safety measures in place, including increased security, a buddy system and signs about mental...

    New Yorkers weary of coronavirus restrictions are paying hundreds of dollars for boozy boat parties on the Hudson River, complete with hot tubs, despite rocketing cases in the city.  The high-risk party people are splashing out for BYOB cruises, bringing coolers filled with beer and wine to drink whilst they sail past The Statue of Liberty, with tours 'sold out' in November and bookings still coming in.  But while the owner insists that the cruises are COVID-safe, they may be in violation of New York's social distancing guidelines.  On Friday the NYC department of health registered 3313 new COVID cases, and 29 deaths. The seven-day average for cases is now the highest it has been since April. The hot tub boat tours are run by water sports company Sea the City.  The extra-wide aluminum catamaran was custom-built by a company in Albany and features two 600-gallon tubs. They feature bathrooms and changing rooms on board. Prices start at $349 for two people on weekdays, or $1,800 for the entire boat on a weekend.     Social media marketer Jackie Chamberlain posted this...

"I just got my NY mailin [sic] ballot today and the security envelope I'm supposed to put it in and sign has some other guy's name and address on it," wrote one Twitter user.  "rec'd my absentee ballot today addressed to me, but the 'Official Absentee Ballot Envelope' inside has a different woman's name and address. My husband also received his absentee ballot today with the same mistake. How can we resolve this?" wrote another person.

    Riders finally can tap it back in New York City again, but this time with a view. SoulCycle has brought its outdoor classes, branded Soul Outdoor, to Hudson Yards in New York City. The 45-minute classes, which originated in the Hamptons, launch on Wednesday, but we’re told they’re already sold out. NYC riders will catch a break, as these classes cost $36 while the Hamptons locations are charging $50. All classes will be taught silent-disco style with headphones provided by the company. The lineup of rides will be led by NYC favorites, including Laurie, Trammell, Emma, Marvin, Sue and more. We’re told sanitation remains the company’s top priority and are ensuring heightened cleaning processes, social distancing practices and face coverings. As The Post reported, saving Hudson Yards could be the key to saving the Big Apple, so perhaps this SoulCycle location will be the first step.

    No tifos. No screaming fans. No sea of blue, or red. In a line of some truly deafening Hudson River Derbies, the next iteration will surely be its most silent. As the teams announced last week, the Red Bulls and New York City FC will restart their seasons against each other August 20 at Red Bull Arena — without the normal fanfare of derby day. Past derbies have included Andrea Pirlo and Frank Lampard depicted with canes, the crowd-silencing 7-0 thrashing at the hands of NYCFC at Yankee Stadium in 2016, and the same club’s exhilarating 3-2 comeback the next year for its first win in the rivalry. This time will not feature the same pomp and circumstance, at least on the field. In eight days, the 17th Hudson River Derby will be a rivalry match distilled to its purest form: two teams who really don’t like each other desperately vying for a win. Sundays #NYvNYC Tifo.

    Isaias may be headed toward NYC area Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Friday (July 31) directed state agencies to prepare for the effects next week of Hurricane Isaias on the Highlands and other parts of southern New York state. The hurricane is approaching the Florida coastline, and models suggest it could move up the East Coast and impact the lower Hudson Valley, New York City and Long Island early next week, the governor said. Forecasts predict the hurricane center will move over the southeastern Bahamas today and travel east of Florida on Saturday and Sunday. It could reach the New York City area on Monday night and into Tuesday, potentially bringing tropical-storm force winds of 39 to 73 mph. For the latest watches, warnings and advisories, see the National Weather Service website.
    A city councilman from a town in the Hudson Valley has issued a travel advisory for New York City after the city’s police department released data showing a spike in crime last month, Fox News reports. “Due to the rising rate of violence and major crimes, it is recommended that area residents exercise increased caution while visiting New York City,” wrote East Fishkill councilman Anil Beephan, Jr. in his advisory, which was posted to Facebook on Wednesday. “Violent crime - such as homicide, shootings, felony assault, grand larceny, and robberies -  is (sic) widespread,” Beephan continued. “Armed criminals have been known to target and attack individuals, both pre-meditated and at random.” Data from the New York Police Department released earlier this month showed a 130% increase in “shooting incidents across the city” in June when compared to the same month last year, along with a 118% increase in burglaries and a 51% increase in car thefts. "I just thought it would be important for residents in my town to know that there is an uptick in crime and they should be...
