    Brazen thieves swiped a pricey Cartier watch from a man's wrist in Manhattan after they acted like they had a gun and chased him down. Video footage released by the NYPD captured the August 29 incident in which the suspects made off with the $35,000 timepiece in Chelsea. The victim was approached by the two suspects, one of whom lifted his shirt and acted as if he had a weapon in his waistband. 'What's up with the watch?' one of the robbers is said to have asked the victim of his Cartier watch. When the victim attempted to flee, the suspects chased him to West 24th Street and Ninth Avenue where video footage shows them pulling him to the ground and yanking the watch from his wrist.  It is not known if the suspect actually had a gun. No arrests have been made.
    A four-by-four bulldozed its way into an outdoor dinning space in New York City on Saturday night, crashing behind several cars parked on a street in Manhattan, as its driver was no where to be seen.  A red Nissan Murano was found parked under an elevated and tilted Honda CRV on 111th Street between Second and Third avenues at around 10.15 p.m. after it crashed into two vehicles. The Honda CRV's backheels were against the Nissan's dashboard window, photos of the incident showed, as the two cars remain crammed over and under each other. As of Sunday afternoon, the suspect driving the Nissan remains unidentified though that person drove through coffee shop Dell'Aria's dining structure, as broken glass was scattered around the scene of the wild hit-and-run.  The deserted Nissan had a total amount of 23 violations in the Big Apple, including 13 in a school zone for speeding while others were related to running a red light, The New York Post reported.  A red Nissan Murano plowed into several parked cars in between 111th Street and Second and Third...
    Actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas introduced Pelosi, but she was booed by the progressive audience. Pelosi spoke about carbon pollution and climate change, according to the New York Post. "As speaker of the house, I am here to thank you for your dazzling advocacy, entrepreneurial thinking, and determination as global citizens," the 82-year-old Pelosi told the unimpressed crowd. "It's thanks to your help that the United States recently enacted historic climate legislation, which will be a game changer," she continued as the audience became less interested. "It will slash carbon pollution by 40% by 2030, it will give a historic, a historic $370 billion to fight the climate crisis." \[email protected] I was at the global citizen festival in Central Park Manhattan, and they brought Nancy Pelosi out and she got heavily booed. \ud83d\ude02\u201d — Kyle Tomczak (@Kyle Tomczak) 1664078228 \u201cNancy Pelosi gets savagely booed while appearing at Global Citizen festival in Central Park NYC to talk about climate change #GlobalCitizenFestival\u201d — Megan Palin (@Megan Palin) 1664068500 The crowd was much more receptive to the musical acts at the...

    Two restaurants in New York are among the 10 best new eateries in the country, according to a roundup by Bon Appétit Magazine.  Columbia County’s Cafe Mutton, located in the City of Hudson, and Semma, in New York City “exemplify exactly how special a restaurant can be,” the outlet said. Cafe Mutton, which reviewers dubbed the country’s most uncompromising restaurant, was praised for its “decadent, unpretentious cooking” served in a “warm cottage-like” environment.

    The New York City Department of Education has fired another 850 teachers and aides for refusing to comply with its COVID vaccine mandate, bringing the total number of school staff terminated over the mRNA shots that have not prevented the spread of infection to 2,000. Some 1,300 department employees agreed to comply with the vaccine mandate by September 5 after taking a year of unpaid leave with benefits, the New York Post reported. The department informed personnel they would have to be vaccinated by that date or be “deemed to have voluntarily resigned.” According to the Post, department officials said 450 staff – about 225 teachers and 135 aides – obtained the shot by September 5 and have returned to work. The remaining 850 employees were terminated. The firing of the teachers comes as a massive teacher shortage has taken place in the United States after 280,000 teachers left the workforce in the wake of the pandemic. WKBW reported in March that Jolene DiBrango, executive vice president of New York State United Teachers said about 180,000 teachers must be hired in the...
    Security cameras will soon be installed in every single one of New York City's 6,400 subway cars, the city has announced - a painstaking $5.5milllion project designed to quash a pandemic surge in transit crime.  Speaking at a news conference in Queens Tuesday, Governor Kathy Hochul, a Democrat, unveiled the effort - as ridership on the world's largest subway system continues to dwindle well below pre-pandemic levels. The undertaking, Hochul said, will include the use of $2million in federal grant funding, will see two cameras in each of the city's 6,455 subway cars. The MTA aims to complete all of the installations by 2025, Hochul's office said. The move arrives after cameras were already installed in all of the system's 472 stations, and follows several highly publicized transit crimes - including a mass shooting on a Brooklyn subway car last April, and the fatal shooting of a Goldman Sachs employee in May. Both incidents occurred on camera-less subway cars, with the April incident transpiring on a train whose cameras had been out of order. Addressing the media Tuesday in Corona, Hochul said the long...
    COVID-19 vaccine mandates are coming to an end for the private sector in the Big Apple.

At least 1,011 asylum seekers arrived in the city from Friday through Sunday, according to a third city official.The city may not be aware of additional migrants who have arrived in recent days.New York City Mayor Eric Adams said Monday that officials are assessing how they will respond to the influx of migrants, including examining legal options.The future is here.

    A TV weatherman in New York City was fired from his job after nude screenshots from an online video chat were sent by an anonymous user to his bosses at work as well as his own mother, court documents obtained by The Daily Beast show. Erick Adame, a two-time Emmy nominee who served as a NY1 meteorologist for about four years until he recently disappeared from the air, is now petitioning a Manhattan judge to force the owners of the internet forum—named in court papers as Unit 4 Media, Ltd.—to identify the people who leaked the NSFW material and deep-sixed his career. The website itself is not specified in Adame’s filing. A site called LPSG.com, however, advises users, “When you buy an LPSG membership it will appear on your bank statement as Unit 4 Media.” LPSG, which stands for “Large Penis Support Group,” describes itself as “the most amazing open-minded fun-spirited sexy adult community” on the internet. The Daily Beast contacted Adame for comment on Monday morning. On Monday afternoon, before this article was published, he posted a message on...
    A document from the Proud Boys dated Jan. 5, 2021, shows the detailed plans for a rally in New York City that was scheduled for Jan. 10, 2021. The extensive plans in the document, which was obtained by the Guardian, show the group advocating against violence by its members but also directing members to police situations of violence during the planned "NYC MAGA MARCH." PROUD BOYS MEMBER CAME SECONDS AWAY FROM SCHUMER ON JAN. 6: COURT FILINGS The document was written by Randy Ireland, who is listed on the document as the president of the Proud Boys' New York chapter. "No Violence is to be Initiated by any Proud Boy at any time! Only if a violent act is committed against a Proud Boy or any attendee of the event are Proud Boys to engage," the document states under the "rules of engagement" section. Despite the calls for no violence, the protocol outlined in the document does make clear members would be expected to respond to any violence with action. "If any violence...
    Share this: This article was originally published on Sep 19 5:00am EDT by THE CITY . For decades, New York has had a right to shelter, meaning that anyone who does not have a roof over their head can get one through the city-run homeless shelter system. That right has been tested in recent weeks by a new challenge: an influx of thousands of Central and South American asylum-seekers who have arrived in the city with no places to live, no jobs, and hardly any possessions.
    El Paso's Democratic mayor said Sunday that he is only busing migrants to New York City to help them get to their final destination as critics pointed out the hypocrisy in the left condemning Republicans for doing the same thing. Mayor Oscar Leeser said migrants aren't coming to the U.S. just to land in his border city, but instead are looking to go to other places in the country – potentially where they have family or other sponsors. 'The people are not coming to El Paso,' Leeser said. 'They're coming to America.' He said that authorities in El Paso speak to migrants and ask them where they want to go before 'we will take them and help them get to their destination.' 'That's been really important that we don't send anyone where they don't want to go,' he added in an interview with ABC's This Week on Sunday morning. 'We make sure we help them.' 'We put them on buses with food and make sure they get to their destination and make sure that we always continue to greet and...
    A witness is heard saying on video with nearly 16 million views on Twitter, "That's why I keep my knife on me all the time, man. S**t like this, you never know. God knows, man." The ax-man then gets in the face of a young woman who was sitting down and points his weapon at her. He then bashes the ax on the table she was sitting at. Palacios walks towards one of the men who punched him earlier and threatens him with the ax. A young woman is shielding him from a possible ax attack. The 2-minute video ends with Palacios leaving the McDonald's. The New York Post reported that Palacios was charged with criminal mischief, three counts of menacing, and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon. The outlet said that Palacios has a prior arrest for resisting arrest. Police said nobody was injured in the furious frenzy. However, there was thousands of dollars of damages done to the McDonald's restaurant. A spokesperson for the Office of the Deputy Commissioner, Public...

    watch nowVIDEO4:5504:55Nearly half of New York City workers are back in the office: SurveySquawk Box Jamie Dimon may have been off by a year, but New York City's offices are finally starting to fill up. In May 2021, the JPMorgan chief executive predicted that the percentage of workers in offices in the city would be back to normal by the following fall. "Yes, the commute, you know, yes, people don't like commuting, but so what?" Dimon said in his not-so-empathic way at the Wall Street Journal CEO Summit. As a Covid wave prognosticator and expert on worker psychology, the bank CEO failed. But his view of bringing workers back is getting closer to reality. Nearly half of office workers (49%) are back in New York City on an average weekday, up from 38% in April, according to the latest data this week from the Partnership for New York City, which has been tracking office occupancy as a vital sign for New York's economy. Fully remote office worker levels are now down to 16%, from 28% in April.People enter the Goldman...

    Share this: EDITORS’ NOTE:No doubt many residents of New York City, particularly the outer boroughs, must be content to adopt one place in the Big Apple as home. Enhancing their home—the place where they sleep– are countless public amenities to provide an escape from the confines of their inner sanctums, and their workplaces. But for the New Yorker who can afford it, escape comes frequently in the form of an additional home, an escape from the pervasive pavements, the high-rise density and frenetic human interaction. The additional home is a retreat to private sanctums of grass, trees, sand and water, but many of these retreats are only a short ride—by train or car—from the inner city. Whether it is the Hamptons (no longer a short ride) or towns and villages in the counties and states surrounding Greater New York, many stakeholders have a significant connection to the Big Apple.
    A New York City middle school English teacher told a Project Veritas (PV) undercover journalist she encourages her students to engage in political violence by teaching them “to throw bricks,” not to “black and brown communities,” but at “the people that are actually doing the things that [need to] change.” In the fourth video of its education series titled “The Secret Curriculum,” New York City Department of Education middle school teacher Ariane Franco is heard telling the PV journalist she teaches her students “there’s strategic ways” to engage in violent protests against the people who oppose her political agenda. Franco, who, according to the video, teaches at the New School for Leadership and the Arts, says she teaches her students “how to do a protest because we spent a good two months based on, like, how to organize, what’s their purpose, the ones that work, what did they do.” She explains she has “brought up crazy organizations” in the past “that have done this.” “Like, they chose which places to throw bricks in,” she is heard explaining. “They chose...

Ron DeSantis continues his program of diverting public education funds to charter schools run by Christian conservative ideologues, New York City can offer a cautionary tale of what can go wrong with such government-subsidized religious schooling. In a blockbuster piece, New York Times reporters ⁦⁦Eliza Shapiro and Brian Rosenthal shine a light into the secretive and extremely lucrative world of the private schools run by the city’s Hasidic community.  “The leaders of New York’s Hasidic community have built scores of private schools to educate children in Jewish law, prayer and tradition—and to wall them off from the secular world. Offering little English and math, and virtually no science or history, they drill students relentlessly, sometimes brutally, during hours of religious lessons conducted in Yiddish.”  Not surprisingly, the result has been an academic disaster. The schools have long resisted outside scrutiny of their educational quality. In 2019, many of them relented, subjecting their students to the same standardized tests in...

    Share this: New York Gov. Kathy Hochul said Friday the state was stepping up its polio-fighting efforts after the virus was detected in the wastewater of yet another county in the New York City area. Health officials began checking for signs of the virus in sewage water after the first case of polio in the United States in nearly a decade was identified in July in Rockland County, which is north of the city. The latest detection involved a wastewater sample collected last month in Nassau County on Long Island, directly east of the city. The sample is genetically linked to the polio case from Rockland and provides further evidence of expanding community spread, state health officials said. The poliovirus had previously been detected in wastewater in New York City and three counties to its north: Rockland, Orange and Sullivan.
    New York City's Mayor looked somber as he arrived at the British Consulate in Manhattan with a bouquet of flowers following the death of Her Majesty.    Eric Adams was among the tearful mourners wearing black who gathered to pay their respects to country after the devastating loss of Queen Elizabeth II.

So too arrives “Make Believe,” an entire-building takeover exhibition at Fotografiska showcasing the oeuvre of David LaChapelle, a prolific photographer and Warhol mentee whose famed celebrity portraits amount to just a fraction of his provocative, pop-sheened, deeply spiritual output. “The loss and reestablishing of faith, and a huge thread of environmentalism” are themes that persists throughout LaChapelle’s work, Amanda Hajjar, Director of Exhibitions at Fotografiska, told The Daily Beast on Thursday evening. “[LaChapelle] has specifically chosen a lot of artwork and photographs for the show...
    An assistant principal of Neighborhood Charter Schools in Harlem with the New York City Department of Education revealed in a Project Veritas (PV) undercover video that he asks a “very specific” question of prospective hires in the area of “Diversity-Equity-Inclusion (DEI),” and “if people don’t answer that question right, they are an automatic Not Hire.” In this third episode of PV’s education series titled “The Secret Curriculum,” Todd Soper is heard telling the undercover journalist that his teachers are expected to be fully indoctrinated in DEI concepts which, as parents have discovered, are central to Critical Race Theory (CRT). In this exchange, Soper, a K-4 administrator who has charge of 670 students, says candidates for teaching positions have to show they have “done a lot of work within themselves, within the profession” in DEI concepts, and that a candidate who does not espouse them would not be offered a position. He tells the PV journalist he is looking for a particular response to a “very specific” question: PV Journalist: But even conservative, like even – Soper: Well, and it comes out...

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul announced today that masks are no longer required on mass transit, marking the end of an era for one of the last nationwide. Compliance was already low, and some New Yorkers say the change won’t make much of a difference. Still, others are concerned that the state has been too quick to let its guard down with the virus still circulating. Hochul has also caught flak for the public messaging campaign accompanying the announcement. The “mask optional” signs are a play off a previous ad campaign that encouraged proper mask usage. Starting today, masks will be optional in some places where they had previously been required, including on mass transit. pic.twitter.com/5zTT4uRB6h — Governor Kathy Hochul (@GovKathyHochul) September 7, 2022 The decision brings New York in line with the federal government, whose nationwide airplane and public transit...
    The school activities director who was heard boasting in a Project Veritas (PV) exposé video how easily she was able to indoctrinate her students into her left-wing political agenda has been placed on paid leave, according to a report at National Review. Jennifer “Ginn” Norris was placed on paid administrator leave while Trinity School, a private school in New York City’s Upper West Side, has “hired outside counsel to conduct an investigation” into the PV undercover video, the report said. The head of school and president of Trinity’s board of trustees reportedly said in an email statement to community members that Trinity and Norris have “become the focus of media attention as the result of video recordings of Ms. Norris that were made without her knowledge or permission by someone who misrepresented himself.” The statement continued: While the circumstances surrounding the recordings are deeply disturbing, and we are profoundly troubled by the reprehensible way Ms. Norris and our school community were targeted, we are treating this matter with the utmost seriousness. Importantly, the sentiments expressed in the video do not...

Texas Governor Greg Abbott ordered over a dozen buses of migrants to both the Big Apple and Washington as an attempt to show them the nature of the crisis at the border.

    Frightening footage shows the moment brazen thieves rammed a SUV onto the sidewalk and stole $20,000 in cash from its driver at gunpoint on Manhattan's Upper East Side - a bizarre heist that has left police searching for the still-at large suspects. The dramatic scene shocked bystanders on Second Avenue between 91 and 92 streets around 4:40 pm Saturday, when two cars came speeding down the wrong side of the road against traffic, in an apparent high-speed chase. The video clip captured by a bystander shows the car being driven by the victim, a Silver Toyota Rav-4, zooming down the avenue at high speeds, before it is overtaken by black Mercedes-Benz being driven by the assailants, which slams into the SUV. Still hitting the gas, the suspects continue to accelerate and ram the Toyota, causing it to spin out as its driver continues to try to get away. At that point, the Mercedes driver again steps on the gas and pushes the other car up onto the sidewalk, where another chase ensued, causing bystanders who flocked to the scene to flee and jump...

    WHEN Frank Sinatra crooned that he wanted to “wake up in a city that doesn’t sleep” he probably wasn’t thinking of New York’s new Hard Rock Hotel. But it’s a fitting theme for the venue, newly opened in the heart of midtown Manhattan, a stone’s throw from the 24/7 hive of activity that is Times Square. 9When Frank Sinatra crooned that he wanted to 'wake up in a city that doesn’t sleep' he probably wasn’t thinking of New York’s new Hard Rock HotelCredit: Getty 9The venue is newly opened in the heart of midtown Manhattan, a stone’s throw from the 24/7 hive of activity that is Times SquareCredit: CHRIS SANDERS 9On the 34th floor, the hotel aims to get in on the Manhattan rooftop bar scene with RT60Credit: CHRIS SANDERS Perhaps surprisingly, this is the first time the ever-popular franchise has taken a bite of the Big Apple.

    The student activities director at an elite New York City private school revealed in an undercover Project Veritas (PV) video that she “sneaks” her left-wing political agenda into classrooms “wherever I can.” “I just keep trying to disrupt wherever I can,” Jennifer “Ginn” Norris is heard saying in the video, the second in PV’s “Education Series” that is titled “The Secret Curriculum.” “And now that I’m in this position, I have so many opportunities to do that,” the administrator said, describing how she gets students to participate in political demonstrations during class time and, when they are given a “detention” for doing so, she and other staff use the “detention” time to indoctrinate them further about “social justice.” Norris described Trinity School to the PV undercover journalist as “a really fancy private school up on the Upper West Side.” Tuition at the K-12 school is nearly $60,000 per year per student. “It’s definitely a school where conservatives would not feel comfortable,” Norris said. “I don’t hide how I feel, but I can’t pretend I’m promoting an agenda even though...
    (CNN)Jessica Flores stepped out of the Port Authority Bus Terminal with her husband and their 6-year-old daughter into the unfamiliar heart of Manhattan, where giant billboards sparkled under a sweltering late summer sun. The sidewalks and traffic lanes along bustling Eighth Avenue were packed when the family emerged carrying plastic bags with all their belongings. Visitors, homeless people and commuters clutching cups of ice coffee crammed the street. Nearby, pedestrians dodged yellow cabs, double-decker tour buses and electric bicycles."Where did all these people come from?" Flores, a 27-year-old undocumented immigrant from Venezuela, remembered thinking last month upon seeing New York up close for the first time. "It was different from everything we saw on the way here." Indeed, a wave of undocumented immigrants and asylum seekers arriving in New York in recent months -- fleeing economic insecurity and political upheaval in Central and South America -- have seen much during their months-long journey across more than a half dozen countries. They have traversed a remote, lawless jungle and rugged mountains, at times passing the corpses of others who perished along...
    New York City has poured millions of dollars into creating a reception site and intake facility for migrants who arrive in Manhattan on buses from the Texas border. The city completed and opened this week a "welcome center" in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood in Manhattan that will give migrants a central location for information about public school enrollment, employment, and housing. It opened with a soft launch this week. “The concept and the plan is to have various city providers on site as a one-stop, one-time, get as many things done as you can,” a source familiar with the undertaking told the New York Post. The cost was covered through a $6.7 million contract that the city entered into last month in an effort to better receive the migrants arriving from Texas daily. The site is not new construction and is housed in a Red Cross facility. Its exact cost was not clear.

    A New York City woman charged with mowing down a disabled man when she sped down the sidewalk in her car was actually aiming at the sister of her 'abusive' ex-boyfriend, her lawyer said Wednesday. Alleged hit-and-run driver Kiani Phoenix, 26, was the victim of prolonged domestic abuse at the hands of her ex-lover and spent 18 months in a mental institution because of her trauma, her lawyer Melvin Kornberg told the Daily News. 'The cause of this whole situation starts with the assault on her,' the lawyer told the paper. 'She in no way intended to kill this man.' Phoenix suffered a blistering beating at the hand the boyfriend's sister when the two ran into each other in a Far Rockaway bodega Saturday morning. The sibling blamed Phoenix because police were looking for her brother. 'Had they made the arrest months ago, none of this would have ever happened,' Kornberg said. 'That's the catalyst with the fight – the fact she has these complaints against the brother.'    The hit-and-run driver wanted for mowing down a handicapped man...
    Share this: Amid the bright lights and electronic billboards across New York’s Times Square, city authorities are posting new signs proclaiming the bustling crossroads a “Gun Free Zone.” The sprawling Manhattan tourist attraction is one of scores of “sensitive” places — including parks, churches and theaters — that will be off limits for guns under a sweeping new state law going into effect Thursday. The measure, passed after a U.S. Supreme Court decision in June expanded gun rights, also sets stringent standards for issuing concealed carry permits. With 50 million tourists flocking to the area every year, Times Square is one of the most densely packed areas in the country and a prime spot, New York authorities say, to be designated as a “Gun Free Zone” under a new state law taking into effect Thursday that attempts to limit where guns can be legally carried.
    Kena Betancur/Getty Images Since 2018, hate crimes against Jews in New York City have resulted in only one perpetrator spending just a single day in jail, according to a report. An in-depth Sunday piece in the Jewish-centric online magazine Tablet mentioned a report by the group Americans Against Antisemitism that, as the publication put it, “found that of the 118 adults arrested for anti-Jewish hate crimes in New York City since 2018, only one has been convicted and sent to prison.” Year after year, among religious groups, Jews are the leading target of hate crimes annually in the United States, according to the FBI. According to Tablet: In New York, street harassment, minor assaults, and even full-on beatings of visible Jews are almost a banality now, too frequent over too long of a period to be considered an active crisis, even in the communities most affected. The city reported a 76% year-over-year rise in hate crimes during the first three months of 2022—attacks on Jews more than tripled, accounting for much of the spike. When reached for comment by email,...
