    Members of the “NYC Revolution Club” burned American flags outside Trump Tower last night. This is a perfect example of the sort of left wing radicals who were silent during eight years of Obama but will be suddenly active again for the next four to eight years while Trump is president. A group of far left activists set the American flag ablaze outside the Trump Tower after President-Elect’s tweet saying flag-burners should lose citizenship or even face jail. ‘Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag – if they do, there must be consequences – perhaps loss of citizenship...

    Three days after the election, my wife and I were shopping at the Fairway Market in Red Hook, Brooklyn. For those unfamiliar with it, Fairway is a less corporate, more co-op version of Whole Foods, offering pretty produce and exotic cheeses that don’t come cheap. The mood in the store was glum. As in most of Brooklyn, people stared ahead, moving slowly, still in shock from the political earthquake of Tuesday night. After getting our Brazilian Arabica ground for drip (I know, I should really use a French Press), Libby and I walked towards the organic maple syrup. That’s when...

    Crains' New York Business ^ | June 26, 2016 | Eddie Borges
    The next citywide election is 16 months away, but with polls showing Mayor Bill de Blasio’s support at an all-time low, potential challengers have been clamoring for attention. Yet perhaps the most viable one has managed to keep her name out of the speculative talk: Christine Quinn. The former City Council speaker has clearly learned a lesson from peaking too early in a campaign. At this time four years ago, Quinn had a 10-point lead on the pack of Democrats looking to succeed Michael Bloomberg. When the only poll that counts closed on primary day, she came in third.

    President-elect Donald Trump took to social media this weekend to demand an apology from the cast of “Hamilton” after star Brandon Victor Dixon read a statement from the stage about the recent election to Vice President-elect Mike Pence, who was in attendance. Dixon said Monday morning he had "nothing to apologize for," but now he may be saying sorry for something entirely different, namely some tweets (and retweets) he made years ago, before “Hamilton” (and President-elect Donald Trump, for that matter) were even a thing. In one, Dixon wrote this: St. Patty's day weekend is like Christmas for black dudes...

We’ve already heard that Melania and Barron Trump will not move into the White House immediately because the Trumps don’t want to disrupt Barron’s schooling in New York. That’s got a few people out of sorts, but for the most part people don’t begrudge a decision based on what’s best for a kid. But now we’re hearing rumblings that...

Brandon Victor Dixon said he spoke to Pence on behalf of the cast at the request of show producer Jeffrey Seller and has no regrets for being the face of Friday night’s controversial monologue. “There’s nothing to apologize for,” the actor told “CBS This Morning.” “When you have a platform, art is meant to bring people together and meant to raise consciousness.

The president-elect’s 46-year-old wife and their 10-year-old son are staying put at the family’s glitzy Trump Tower penthouse so that Barron can continue attending his Upper West Side private school, sources told The Post. “Melania is extremely close to Barron, and they have become closer during the campaign,” said a source close to Trump’s transition team. “The campaign has been difficult for Barron, and she is really hoping to keep disruption to a minimum.”

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The hottest show on Broadway has won praise for its groundbreaking casting of black and Latino performers, but now, “Hamilton” may have run afoul of the strict New York City Human Rights Law. As CBS2’s Tony Aiello reported, the controversy was sparked by a casting notice posted by the producers of “Hamilton,” which specifically seeks “non-white” performers. One critic said “Hamilton” takes a story that “valorizes dead white guys” and replaces it with black, Latino and multi-ethnic performers playing America’s founding fathers. But as the blockbuster musical looks to expand to other cities, the casting notice...

    Midtown Manhattan—with its noise, traffic, slow-moving tourists, and overpriced everything—is the one place most New Yorkers avoid at all costs (if they can help it.) It’s also home to Trump Tower, a gargantuan gold-plated phallus jabbed straight into the city skyline where the President-elect is planning on spending weekends during his term in office. In a neighborhood as densely populated as Midtown, the necessary job of keeping Trump safe will lead to unprecedented hassles for those living and working in New York, a city which already earns its stripes as having the country’s worst workday commute.

True, his 30,000-square-foot, gilt-slathered Trump Tower penthouse is no ordinary pad, but the fact that he lives in the innermost heart of what you might call the inner city means that security arrangements don’t just inconvenience a few neighbors; they screw up a sizable chunk of Manhattan. Fifth Avenue in the 50s is almost always clotted with pedestrians and cars, and this time of year it becomes even more congested as department...

De Blasio said he expressed concerns about Trump’s policies towards illegal immigrants. After visiting Manhattan’s Trump Tower on Wednesday, where the billionaire president-elect is building his team to lead the country, de Blasio said he would do all he can to prevent the large-scale deportation of immigrants. Vowing to obstruct Trump’s campaign pledge to expel millions of undocumented immigrants, the liberal mayor said the billionaire’s stance “flew in the face of all that was great about New York City.”...

    In a highly unusual move, President-elect Donald Trump on Tuesday night left his Manhattan residence without notifying the reporters covering him or giving any indication of where he was going. The maneuver seemed to deliberately limit access to the media. The only way the press eventually ascertained his whereabouts was after a Bloomberg reporter, who happened to be dining at the 21 Club, tweeted a photo of Trump and some of his transition team in the Midtown steakhouse. Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks later told NBC News. "He is having dinner with his family."

    When New York City launched the nation’s biggest municipal ID card program last year, advocates said it would help people living in the U.S. illegally to venture out of the shadows. But since Donald Trump was elected president, city officials are instead fielding questions about whether the cards could put those same people at greater risk of being deported. The city has vowed to protect cardholders’ personal records and might even delete them using a kind of self-destruct provision that allows for the information to be destroyed at the end of the year. At least one state lawmaker has criticized...

    It could be a difficult farewell for Donald Trump when the time comes to take up residency at the White House. Although he has hinted of commuting from New York City in his helicopter, the U.S. President-elect is likely to have to say goodbye to the $100million suite which sits at the top of Trump Tower. The lavish building can be found on Fifth Avenue and is home to the Republican's business as well as his three-level, 66th floor penthouse.

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio promised illegal immigrants living in New York City that they need not fear Donald Trump's deportations plans. He plans to resist President Trump's immigration policies at all costs, whatever that means. Now, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is echoing De Blasio's declaration. Speaking at a press conference at the Lurie Children's Hospital on Monday, Emanuel said Chicago will "always be a sanctuary city." "To all those who are, after Tuesday's election, very nervous and filled with anxiety as we've spoken to, you are safe in Chicago, you are secure in Chicago and you are...

    Amid nationwide protests and widespread social-media threats aimed at Presidential-elect Donald Trump and his supporters after this week’s election, one report detailed the type of treatment the brash billionaire’s son and daughter-in-law received upon leaving a New York City restaurant this week.

    A database containing the identity of undocumented immigrants living in New York City would not be opened up to a Trump administration without a "real fight," the city's mayor said on Thursday. Mayor Bill de Blasio, speaking at a news conference the day after President-elect Donald Trump's stunning electoral victory, also left open the possibility that the database, which holds personal information from the more than 850,000 New Yorkers who have a city municipal identification card, could be scrubbed. The IDNYC card was introduced in 2015 as a free and official proof of identification that could be obtained with limited...

    New York City's red state finally got its revenge. Staten Island voters overwhelmingly backed Donald Trump on Tuesday, bucking not only Hillary Clinton, but the other four Democrat-heavy boroughs. "Of course it's vindication," said retired NYPD detective John Sellenthin as he gladly posed next to the "Trump/Pence" sign in front of his cozy Castleton Corners home. "The media, the Establishment, the liberals all wanted Hillary Clinton. And I said, 'Of course I'm doing the opposite!'" This victory was particularly sweet because the professionals on the other side of the Harbor were so sure it wasn't going to happen. But the...
