    Gov. Cuomo said the panic that erupted in Times Square after a backfiring motorcycle mistaken for gunshots sent people fleeing from the area shows just how “terrified” the nation is in the wake of the mass shootings over the weekend. SEE ALSO Panic in Times Square after motorcycle backfire mistaken for gunshots ​”That’s where we are. You hear a noise, you run. That’s the state of this nation. We’re petrified,” he said Wednesday during an interview on WCBS 880 radio. The governor also railed about the “impotence of government” for its failure to respond with any substantial gun control legislation,...

    CNN ^ | June 11, 2019 | Doug Criss,
    That's why when Krispy Kreme opens a location in New York's Times Square early next year, it will feature the world's largest Hot Light. That won't be the only unique component of the 24-hour, 4,500-square-foot retail space, which will sit at the corner of Broadway and 48th Street. The location's "doughnut theater experience" will showcase the doughnut making process from end-to-end, from the mixing of ingredients to running the tasty treats through a glaze "waterfall." Oh, and if you get hungry and want to eat one (or a box?) of them, there will be stadium-style seating in the shop so...

    Videos at link. (Photo by William Chen, via Facebook) Last night hundreds of protesters gathered in Times Square in New York City to call for the removal of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) from the powerful House Foreign Affairs Committee. The protest was organized by conservative activist Joe Diamond, whose campaign to raise funds for a Times Square billboard was pulled by Facebook soon after they’d raised adequate funds. The Jerusalem Post covered the event: Following the Minnesotan congresswoman’s highly-publicized allegations of antisemitism and statement downplaying the 9/11 terrorist attacks, New York native and activist Joe Diamond organized a rally and...

    Write it down! On May 4th 2019, a near perfect 70 degree afternoon, in the middle of Times Square, in New York City, from three sound stages blasting thousands of decibels into the surrounding neighborhoods, the final speaker of the day said that, “Soon... Abortion will become... unthinkable!” The statement came after a 90 minute program that had been slated as a “public celebration of life.” Not content to believe the organizers, protestors attempted to disrupt the proceedings. But those protests, which began with profane chants, obscene signs, and thundering drums, ended with nary a whimper, and dispersed far more...

    After New York publicly celebrated its most expansive abortion bill, allowing abortion up to the point of birth in many cases and performed by non-doctors, a conservative Christian group launched a nationwide pro-life campaign that will culminate with an event in New York City to show that "every life is made in the image of God." Focus on the Family's 12-week campaign, dubbed "See Life Clearly," leads up to a May 4 event called "Alive From New York" in the heart of Times Square. “We’re looking to fill Times Square with pro-life Americans, and it will feature live music, compelling...

    A Manhattan legislator said Monday that she “appreciates” the vandal who defaced a Florida statue honoring the sailor kissing a female nurse in Times Square to mark the end of World War II because it was a “forced” smooch. “I appreciate someone recognizing that a random man grabbing a random woman is completely inappropriate,” City Councilwoman Helen Rosenthal, who chairs the Committee on Women, told The Post after a hearing on adding more monuments in the city honoring women and minorities.

    I've just heard it announced that one of the "highlights" of the New Year's Eve celebration in NYC's Times Square will be a performance of John Lennon's "Imagine," this time by one Bebe Rexha.  I'll admit to being "culturally deprived"; I've never heard of that person.  And it turns out that "Imagine" has been performed at other Times Square New Year's Eve celebrations since 2005 (2012 and 2016, for example, by other performers of whom I'd never heard), with videos of the crowds enthusiastically waving their arms and singing along. Now, I'm a big fan of The Beatles, and I happen...

    Five rocky years since its arrival in tourist mecca Times Square, Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar from television rock star Guy Fieri will shutter. December 31 is the last day for the ill-received, yet still wildly popular restaurant that served as a touchstone for Fieri fans ... There were both very high highs and very low lows for Guy’s throughout the years — most famously when Fieri took home the top prize at the 2013 Food & Wine festival burger bash and most infamously when Times critic Pete Wells positively skewered the restaurant in an unprecedently scathing zero-star review...
