    Shocking video captured the moment a Brooklyn school bus aide was sucker-punched as she was walking down a street — knocking out her teeth and leaving her with a broken jaw that had to be wired shut. Dulche Pichardo, 57, said she was commuting home from work at about 5 p.m. Tuesday when a stranger took a swing at her on the sidewalk of Grand Avenue near Dean Street in Crown Heights. “He just punched me on the right side here, very strong,” Pichardo told PIX11, adding that the brute never said a word. The disturbing surveillance footage shows her...

    The failed politician who was arrested for allegedly sucker-punching a 23-year-old woman in Manhattan on Monday has a penchant for documenting his harassment of women on his multiple TikTok accounts. Skiboky Stora, 40, of East New York, was charged with assault Wednesday in connection with a random Monday attack on Halley Kate Mcgookin after she recounted the incident to her more than a million TikTok followers. Stora, an aspiring rapper who unsuccessfully ran for mayor, governor and City Council over the past three years, appears to maintain ten different TikTok accounts, which were viewed by The Post and document his...

    After several women came forward on TikTok saying they had been randomly punched in the face by strangers, the NYPD has made an arrest — though it's not clear if the suspect is believed to be connected to any of the claims on social media. Police arrested Skiboky Stora, 40, of Brooklyn, on Wednesday after a 23-year-old woman reported to police that on Monday morning, a stranger had struck her, the NYPD confirms to PEOPLE in a statement. “The victim fell to the ground and suffered injuries to the left side of her face,” they said in the statement. Stora...

The drone footage, posted on X, showed a massive migrant camp at Floyd Bennett Field. The video showed sprawling tent cities, which hammered home the sheer scale of crisis under Joe Biden’s watch.

    Brooklyn movie theater workers who said they were “victimized by Barbenheimer” have voted to unionize — after what they claim was “an aggressive union-busting campaign” from management. Employees at Nitehawk Cinema in Prospect Park say they’ve had enough of unsafe working conditions, unfair treatment, and being underpaid and overworked at the popular theater. Their concerns became “exacerbated by the whirlwind phenomena of Barbenheimer” last summer, the union said in a statement last month. Out of over 100 eligible voters, 92 workers participated in the election last week, voting 51-41 in favor of a union, Will Bobrowski, second vice president at...

    Police have two persons of interest in connection with the shooting death of a 13-year-old boy in Brooklyn that was apparently revenge for an Instagram live beating that the young boy was not involved in, according to police sources. Troy Gill was just a few blocks from his home in Crown Heights near Brooklyn Avenue and St. Marks Avenue around 10 p.m. on Feb. 29 when he was shot four times by rival gang members and left for dead, cops said. The boy had been to a Nets game earlier that night and desperately called his mother as he fled...

A subway car at the station was “covered with blood and ballistics” when police arrived, a source said. It wasn’t immediately clear what sparked the violence, which...

    A New York commission that will recommend whether to give reparations for slavery and discrimination to black residents hasn’t even met yet - but it’s already sparked a rift among black New Yorkers over who should be eligible for payouts. **SNIP** Bertha Lewis, head of the Brooklyn-based Black Institute, told The Post that reparations must be considered for all black residents, because they have suffered from decades of systemic racism resulting from slavery - even if they are not direct descendants of slaves. “That’s a false narrative,” Lewis said. “I don’t give a f**k what California did.” “You can’t just...

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lashed out at protesters who accosted her at a Brooklyn movie theater and demanded the lefty lawmaker call Israel’s military campaign in Gaza a “genocide,” new video shows.

Hunter is well-known to police, with eight prior arrests. She was last taken into custody in October after stealing $2,050 worth of bathing suits from New York’s famous Bergdorf Goodman.

    A parent council in heavily Jewish Brooklyn held a “special meeting” on a Friday evening in January, knowingly excluding anyone observing Shabbat from the public forum, according to outraged community members who called the move antisemitic. The Community Education Council for District 22, which covers Flatbush, Sheepshead Bay, Marine Park, and Manhattan Beach, scheduled a follow-up meeting to vote on resolutions after its Jan. 9 meeting went fully remote due to a snowstorm. Despite calls to the CEC, the city Department of Education, and the Office of Family and Community Engagement, urging them to choose another date, the forum was...

    New York City Council Member Vickie Paladino put Brooklyn’s wealthy liberals on blast for neglecting to demand that Democrat Mayor Eric Adams place a shelter for illegal border crossers in their neighborhood, and she has the perfect facility for such a venture. The 19th District councilwoman took to her X account on Monday to wonder why the wealthy leftists living in the city’s affluent Park Slope community seem to lack any migrant shelters, and she pointed to the neighborhood’s Park Slope Armory, which would be the perfect place for a temporary shelter. Above a photo of the facility, Paladino wrote:...

    Meet New York City’s good neighbor. For the last year, Sean Feeney, a finance veteran turned restaurateur, has been quietly padding out his resume with some major dirty work: garbage. It’s an unsavory business. But in our city where trash is so ubiquitous it’s starting to feel like a coordinated street art project designed to offend the senses, the 43-year-old owner of Brooklyn’s Fini Pizza has taken a personal interest in its disposal. Instead of flooding 311 with futile complaints about the muck, Feeney opened his cash register to help clean up his section of Williamsburg and now Downtown Brooklyn...
