    Tourism bosses in Portland have taken out a full-page advert in the New York Times admitting the riot-hit city has an 'edge' - but urging visitors to come anyway.   Travel Portland - a nonprofit which oversees the Oregon city's tourism marketing - referenced reports of far-left violence in the city in the ad.  It admits that much of what has been said about Portland - whose 50-strong riot squad resigned last week - was true, and that the city, which endures nightly riots, has an 'edge.'   ‘You’ve heard a lot about us lately,’ the NYT ad begins. ‘It’s been a while since you’ve heard from us.' ‘Some of what you’ve heard about Portland is true. Some is not. What’s most important is that we’re true to ourselves.' 'There's a river that cuts through the middle of our town. It divides the east and the west. But it's bridged - over and over again. Twelve times, to be specific. And that's kind of a great metaphor for this city.' The advert goes on to highlight Portland's problems - and implies that...
    A series of attacks on random strangers is putting New Yorkers on edge.  Although assaults were commonplace in the 1980s, a crackdown on the crooks who perpetrated such crimes saw levels drop making neighborhoods that were previously known as no-go areas, safe to walk around, even at night. But now, areas of the city which were generally thought to be safe, such as Midtown Manhattan, Chelsea and the leafy Upper West Side, have been locations where people have been punched in the head for no reason at all.  Some are describing the assaults as proof of the return of the so-called 'knockout game.'  Police in January released surveillance video of a man sucker punching a Catholic deacon inside a Bronx subway station in January. The first of many random attacks of 2021 In March, a 68-year-old man was left bloodied in a racially motivated attack on the subway  Two men were beaten up in the Bronx recently while one woman was knocked to the ground outside an Upper West Side subway station. 'My friend was screaming, ran to...
    Senator Chuck Schumer declared New York City open on Friday as Coney Island's Luna Park and Deno's Wonder Wheel Amusement Park welcomed back guests for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic. The Senate Majority Leader and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio were on hand for the traditional 'Blessing of the Rides' ceremony in front of the Wonder Wheel.   'Coney Island is one of the national symbols of New York and, when it opens, the world knows New York is coming back,' Schumer said, raising a fist in the air. 'The opening of Coney Island Island is a metaphor of New York City. We are getting back in business.  'And just like we had a rollercoaster of a year,  now all New Yorkers are eager to get back to business...and have some safe, socially distanced fun.      The senator all promised that all New Yorkers will be able to  line up' to get the COVID-19 vaccine in the next three weeks - although it is unclear how a statewide walk-up process would work.

    More than 300 people joined some of New York's top elected officials and community leaders on Saturday afternoon to speak out against the increase in anti-Asian violence in the city and nationwide.  The Rise Up Against Asian Hate rally, organized by the Asian American Federation (AAF), took place at Foley Square in downtown Manhattan, two blocks from where a 36-year-old Asian man was stabbed on Thursday night.  Among the speakers was a recent victim: 61-year-old Filipino-American Noel Quintana, whose face was slashed on the subway earlier this month. "I called for help, but nobody came to help," he said. "If they took a video of this, the perpetrator would be identified easily." He urged people to be safe and aware, and to record and report incidents. As he walked off the stage, the crowd chanted his name.  Democratic Congresswoman Grace Meng, who represents New York's 6th District and authored a resolution in the House last September to denounce hatred against Asian-Americans, said, "We need to make sure that we are not fighting racism with more racism. That we are...

Erik McGregor/LightRocket via Getty Images New York City murders are up by 33 percent and the number of victims shot has doubled. Crime analysts were expecting the shutdown earlier this year to result in a sharp drop in crime, but it has since recovered from a few slow month and jumped far higher than normal. A former NYPD analyst says COVID-19, political unrest, and economic depression might play a role in the data. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. When New York City shut down in March, crime stat analysts watched in awe as homicide and shooting counts kept falling, Christopher Herrmann, a former Crime Analyst Supervisor with the New York City Police Department, told Insider. "We were all anticipating a huge decrease in crime. Nobody is on the subway anymore. Everyone is working remotely," Herrmann, who now teaches at John Jay College, said.  "'How much lower can it go? How much lower can it go?' That was sort...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Monday was a big day in New York state as some day camps opened up, but many are still closed. Kids on the Upper East Side attended their first day of camp at Asphalt Green. “I had the greatest day in this whole universe because it’s all about camp in the summer,” a 6-year-old named David told CBS2’s Vanessa Murdock. “I ate Cheese-Its,” added 5-year-old Leah. “It felt great. I was so excited for her to be able to have her have fun, and not be cooped up, and interact,” said parent Joelle Obsatz. Ashphalt Green camp director Katie Duffy is trying to make the best of the circumstances. “It feels a little different, but we are still trying to bring that camp magic,” said Duffy.

    SAN ANTONIO – The city of San Antonio, and the entire state of Texas, are seeing a significant surge in COVID-19 cases and hospital numbers, especially over the weekend. On Saturday, Bexar County sent an emergency alert to residents just minutes after the city reported 795 new COVID-19 cases, which was a daily high for San Antonio. Dr. Robert Leverence, of UT Health San Antonio, joined us on Leading SA to discuss what has lead to the significant increases in cases and hospitalizations. “This tells us that we’re still in the thick of things. It is a highly infectious virus. It still has the capacity to overwhelm our system and we truly can’t let up our efforts,” Dr. Leverence said. Although some may attribute the higher case numbers to the city’s increase in testing capacity, Dr. Leverence said that isn’t entirely to blame. “We’re seeing increased cases because of more testing, but on the other hand, this is a very real surge. We have, oh, I think, seven fold of the number of patients hospitalized for Covid-19 in our...
    “Quick, grab the binoculars!” My husband and I stand up from our camping chairs. I put my thermos down next to our other provisions—oranges, granola, two types of sunscreen—and squint through the lenses. “Is that an eagle?” Not quite. It's just a robust crow, perched on a condo. It was the first beautiful weekend of the year, and we'd wanted to bask in nature, but the pandemic limited our options. We can't be picky about wildlife encounters, as our campsite for the foreseeable future is the roof of our Brooklyn apartment building.Related StoriesCoronavirusThe Promise of Antibody Treatments for Covid-19Kate Knibbs Shelter in PlaceThe Covid-19 Rent Crisis Is HereKate Knibbs Covid-19What Coronavirus Isolation Could Do to Your Mind (and Body)Emma Grey Ellis The building was once a three-story 1930s dairy plant with art deco flourishes, remodeled a couple of decades ago into an eight-unit residence.

    Former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Scott Gottlieb warned Sunday that coronavirus outbreaks in several states, including Texas, Florida and Arizona, could overwhelm local health care systems if not properly handled. “We’re seeing a resurgence in the south and the southeast, they really never got rid of their epidemics,” Gottlieb said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “A challenge that was once facing some regions of the country is now facing every region of the country, and the worry is they’re going to tip into exponential growth.” “If you look at places like Arizona, the hospitals are getting pressed,” he added. “Midweek there was a report out of Arizona that about 40 percent of the hospital beds were filled with COVID patients. Texas and Florida still are reporting a lot of capacity even though Florida doesn’t report the total hospitalizations for COVID patients. These things can mount very quickly, as we saw in New York.” HOSPITAL OVERLOAD? @ScottGottliebMD warns that hospitals in #Covid19 hotspots - Texas, Arizona and Florida for example - could be overwhelmed as case numbers surge. “These...
    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo held his final daily coronavirus briefing on Friday, capping more than three months of press conferences in which he gave updates 7 days a week on COVID-19's spread in the state, measures to fight it, and its subsequent decline. Cuomo appeared by himself on Friday, telling viewers that he gave his staff their first day off in 111 days. "I can handle this last daily COVID briefing alone. After 111 days of hell, they all deserve a break," he said.  The governor, who appeared without his usual PowerPoint slide presentation, shared more positive coronavirus data. Statewide, 1,284 people are hospitalized from the virus, and 79,000 tests were conducted on Wednesday alone. The state also hit two weekly lows this week: less than 1% of New York residents are infected with the virus, and an average of 25 people died from the virus every day this week.

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo knocked President Trump for a recent photo of him holding up a Bible, suggesting during a press conference on Wednesday that Trump didn't actually read the text. "Today is day 95 of the situation dealing with the coronavirus pandemic," Cuomo said. "And it is day 10 of the situation dealing with the civil unrest after the murder of Mr. Floyd that we all saw on TV. The president held up the bible the other day in Washington, D.C.; Here in New York we actually read the Bible, and there are some passages that I think are especially appropriate for today at this time of where we are." He went on to cite verses like Matthew 5:9, which reads: "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God." Cuomo's attack follows several tweets in which the president criticized his response to both the coronavirus and the ongoing riots surrounding the death of George Floyd.
