    Protesters are crowding the streets this afternoon, demanding a meeting with the President-elect — all of this, just days before the nation celebrates the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. NY1's Erin Clarke joins us live from outside Trump Tower with more on the demonstration. In coordinated marches from all five boroughs, Black Lives Matter protesters began a trek in honor of Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. "This march is really about solidarity on Martin Luther King's birthday and also on the eve of Trump's inauguration and it's really about getting awareness up about our cause," said...

    As we detailed earlier, leading French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen, is in New York for an unexpected visit. While she has no public agenda to meet with Donald Trump, she has just been spotted there drinking coffee. "Le Pen, who leads in the latest opinion poll for the presidency, is making a private visit to New York, her campaign chief of staff, David Rachline, said in a text-message exchange. He declined to say if she would meet publicly with President-elect Donald Trump or anyone from his entourage." Well she is in Trump Tower, grabbing coffee... As we noted earlier,...

    Too many times these days, the mainstream media will jump on a story before knowing any of the facts to gain political advantage points. Famed Oklahoma football coach Barry Switzer used and abused the so-called "dishonest media" earlier this month by straight up lying. According to Politico, Switzer was shopping with his family in New York City when he passed by Trump Tower and decided to go in. "All the media people said, 'Coach what are you doing here,'" Switzer said. "I told them I was here to see the president like everyone else."> However, Switzer only went upstairs, bought...

    Froufrou Fifth Avenue resembles a police state. Officers wielding gigantic guns guard Trump Tower, where President-elect Donald Trump conducts all transition business, and soon lots of presidential business, too. Shoppers patronizing the stores, cafes or public gardens inside must endure layers of security screening. Streets and sidewalks are barricaded; traffic is snarled; and costumed buskers milk money from the looky-loos obstructing the entrances to Gucci and Tiffany. The challenges of securing this 58-story building in a high-density neighborhood will, by Inauguration Day alone, drain $35 million of local taxpayer money. Who knows the additional costs to commerce and property values?

    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...

While Tiffany didn’t mention the President-elect by name, it was clear what Tiffany was referring to when it said that there has been “some adverse effect on traffic” at the 5th Avenue location due to “the impact of recent election-related activity.” Tiffany added that there was “softness” at this store and warned that sales could be hit again in...

Trump at his first post-election meeting with the media yesterday; no splashy headlines about how he blatantly threatened them. There is no proof Trump threatened them, because what really happened is that they felt intimidated by him.

    Donald Trump is a creature of New York. He ran against Washington and called it “a swamp.” During his campaign, he often flew home late at night so he could wake up in his own bed. His 10-year-old son is enrolled in a Manhattan private school. So it’s no wonder Trump is reportedly considering spending time in New York whenever he is able — presumably on weekends. If so, his home, in the penthouse of Trump Tower, on W. 56th Street and Fifth Avenue, will be the epicenter of an iron curtain that will wall off much of Midtown from...

    Donald Trump, the first New York City kid to become president since FDR, will also be the first commander-in-chief to move to the White House from an apartment. 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...

    New York Mayor Bill de Blasio has told US President-elect Donald Trump that the city is “fearful” of his incoming administration. 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.”...

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.

    The Donald may denounce illegal immigrants as ‘rapists,’ but his empire’s crown jewel was erected on land cleared by a small army of undocumented Polish workers, a lawsuit alleged. The use of undocumented workers on a Trump construction site such as the hotel described by The Washington Post this week is certainly nothing new. Thirty-five years ago, a small army of illegal immigrants was used to clear the site for what became the crown jewel of Donald Trump’s empire. The 200 demolition workers—nicknamed the Polish Brigade because of their home country—worked 12-hour shifts, seven days a week with no overtime...
