    Gov. Andrew Cuomo doubled down last week on his blame-the-messenger approach to New York’s growing shortage of natural-gas supplies by ordering the Department of Public Service to “broaden its investigation” of National Grid and threatening to “find another franchisee.” Anything, rather than admit that his own policies are at fault. The utility has stopped taking new gas customers in parts of Long Island, Brooklyn and Queens where it can’t handle the new demand — because Team Cuomo vetoed the proposed Williams pipeline to bring in supplies from New Jersey. (Jersey is also blocking the pipeline, since Gov. Phil Murphy is...

    The illegal immigrant who bludgeoned a New York socialite with a fire extinguisher at her Westchester estate in 2015 was sentenced to 22 years to life in prison on Thursday, as he publicly begged for forgiveness. Esdras Marroquin Gomez had pleaded guilty in May to murdering Lois Colley, the wife of a millionaire McDonald’s franchise owner. Gomez had worked on the Colleys’ 300-acre estate about five times but was not employed there at the time of the murder. According to his defense attorney, Gomez went to the property, Windswept Farm, on the day of the murder to talk to Eugene...

    ALBANY — The tax filings of President Trump and all public elected officials in New York will be fair game for congressional Democrats under a new law. The state Legislature on Wednesday approved a bill that allows the state Department of Taxation and Finance to release tax returns of thousands of New Yorkers upon an official request by Congress. Gov. Andrew Cuomo previously said he would support the idea. “This bill stands for a principle of transparency in regards to top officials’ tax returns and recognizing that shedding light on conflicts, potential conflicts of interest is for a public purpose...

    US Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez scrambled Sunday to explain why neighbors at her listed Bronx address never saw her there — and ended up claiming she recently relocated to a larger place nearby. The day after The Post reported that residents said they had never seen her around — and she ducked questions about it after an appearance — her spokesman said the Democratic freshman congresswoman now lives with her boyfriend in a two-bedroom apartment “a block and a half away.’’ The pair relocated there earlier this month, he said. “She lives in the same neighborhood she’s lived in for years,”...

    New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has painted a picture of herself as a tough woman from the Bronx but it appears to be a façade. It has been alleged before that she was raised in the affluent Westchester region of New York and was a fraud. She has strongly denied those accusations and insisted she was raised in the Bronx and Westchester. But now that she is a Congresswoman she insists that she resides full time in the Bronx and her brand is built on that premise. That is when she is not living in her luxury apartment in Washington...

    Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has insisted that she does live in the Bronx, despite claims that her neighbors have never met her. Through a spokesman, the New York Democrat strongly denied a Saturday report in the New York Post, which claimed there was scant evidence that she lives in the Bronx condo where she is registered to vote. 'She lives there,' the freshman congresswoman's spokesman Corbin Trent told, referring to a condo in the Parkchester neighborhood that was owned by Ocasio-Cortez's late father. 'That's home, period, for her. That's where she gets her energy, her drive. She not only lives...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez falsely claimed to be a girl from the Bronx, when she was actually an architect's daughter from Westchester. Then she decided to claim Jewish ancestry and now, joins Senator Elizabeth Warren in claiming to be Indian. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said that America needs to allow illegal immigrants, who are Latino, to stay in the country because they are descendants of Native Americans, and the United States is on native lands. She made the remarks during a press conference in which she called for the abolishment of ICE on Thursday. “We have to have respect for children,...

    Former White House photographer Barbara Kinney, who has worked with the Clinton family since 1993, says 2016 crowds like this one, in Westchester, New York, were akin to a “jolt of caffeine.” She dedicates #StillWithHer (produced in collaboration with PEOPLE correspondent Sandra Sobieraj Westfall) and its 267 images of the history-making campaign to “the students who march and the women who rally — not only as voters, but as candidates, too. … to every person who attended a rally and made every trip worth taking…and to the 65,845,063 voters who believed in the Hillary I’ve known all these years.”

    There have been numerous sad instances of people jumping off of freeway overpasses to their deaths.(snip) But one officer encountered a truly unique situation that could have easily claimed her life, too. When 28-year-old Officer Jessie Ferreira Cavallo saw what looked like a teenager run off an overpass, she didn’t really have to think about what she was going to do next; she just acted.(snip) The young officer could see the teenage boy lying on the concrete below, though the thing that she noticed most was the blood everywhere. The scene didn’t look promising. “I wasn’t thinking too much,” Cavallo...

    Getting from point A to point B should, theoretically, be a relatively simple task. But in order to travel, the transportation infrastructure needs to be in place and up to par. Across the state, major projects are underway to repair and update that infrastructure so that New Yorkers can get where they need to go – whether that’s through the air, over land or over water. Though some may be on track to be completed while others wallow in planning, here are five major projects underway that should make it easier for New Yorkers to get around.Gov. Mario M. Cuomo...

    Either Ted Cruz is hip or rap is dead. I am not sure which. It has to be one of the two. A group called We Are Watchmen, a Christian rap group from the Chicago suburb of Westchester, has made what can be loosely described as a “rap paean” to Ted Cruz. It is entitled “Set It On Fire.” It is about four minutes long, and if you listen to it enough times, every ounce of hipness drains from your body and you become Donny Osmond. (VIDEO-AT-LINK)The title is misleading. The gist of the song is that you should vote...

An unidentified plane flying in busy commercial airspace was closing in on them. Shortly after, the controller told them to change course. At some point, that unidentified plane got close, much too close, to...

    New York's gubernatorial race got its first declared GOP candidate on Wednesday in the form of Rob Astorino, the Westchester county executive who announced via Web video that he would challenge Gov. Andrew Cuomo in this year's election. "I'm tired of listening to the fairy tale that everything is just great when it's just the opposite. I'm tired of watching New York's decline," Mr. Astorino said in the six-and-a-half minute video. Mr. Astorino, 46 years old, emerged as a likely contender after winning re-election in November in heavily Democratic Westchester with 56% of the vote. The former radio host, however,...
