    Target said Tuesday that it will close nine stores in major cities across the country, citing violence, theft and organized retail crime. The company will close one store in New York City’s Harlem neighborhood, two locations in Seattle, three stores in the San Francisco-Oakland area and three more in Portland, Oregon. The discounter said it will shutter the stores for good on Oct. 21. “We cannot continue operating these stores because theft and organized retail crime are threatening the safety of our team and guests, and contributing to unsustainable business performance,” Target said in a news release. “We know that...

    On Monday, local, state and federal leaders joined environmental activists to tour the Harlem River by boat. They hope to tackle disparities between different parts of the city. New York City has more shoreline than Miami, Boston, Los Angeles and San Francisco combined, but access points to the waterways are not distributed equally. Dozens filled the deck of a Circle Line boat to discover a new perspective of home. This is the second year Congressman Adriano Espaillat (NY-13) and the Harlem River Working Group have organized the tour to call for more support. The group also included Bronx and Harlem...

    A Harlem fishmonger left battered during a fatal melee over shrimp at a Manhattan fish market, said the ugly episode could have been avoided. “I saw what he was doing. He was stealing. If he wasn’t stealing, nothing would have happened,” injured worker Francisco Morales told The Post of the man accused of trying to rob the store. Morales, 38, was hurt during Tuesday’s chaos at the Fish Express Fish Mart, when Robert “Bobby” Burrell, and his brother, Malik, allegedly entered the store to steal shrimp and began assaulting him. Another worker, Junior Hernandez, intervened and ultimately stabbed the Burrell...

    Singer Azealia Banks offered Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis her ringing endorsement in a new interview, proclaiming that she feels “way safer” living in the Sunshine State under the Republican’s leadership than she ever did in liberal California. The “212” rapper, who relocated to Miami in 2021, weighed in on the potential 2024 GOP frontrunner as she recalled spending the pandemic in Los Angeles “isolated and scared,” surrounded by virtue-signaling wealthy liberals displaying “Black Lives Matter” signs at their homes and businesses. “Every which way I turn there’s a Black Lives Matter sign, and then we’re watching swathes of Latino people...

    Actress Susan Sarandon, an ardent leftist during her professional life who routinely retweets other ardent leftists, posted a message on social media akin to the message that actress Gina Carano posted in early 2021 that got her canceled. In early 2021, Carano, then starring in Disney’s “The Mandalorian,” posted a message on Instagram to illustrate her feelings about the hate directed toward political conservatives. She posted a photo with the caption: Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbors…even by children. Because history is edited, most people today don’t realize that to get to...

    A left-wing state lawmaker who has pushed for cutting police funding first moved to the district she is seeking to represent in Congress because “safety issues” near “the projects” in Harlem prompted her to shack up with her tech bro then-fiancé in the Financial District, The Post has learned. Assemblywoman Yuh-Line Niou (D-Lower Manhattan) told a local publication in 2016 — when she was campaigning to initially get elected to her current seat — that she headed to the wealthier Manhattan neighborhood because she witnessed a pair of disturbing crimes and fell victim to one. “I actually was robbed when...

The gunman pistol-whipped a male customer before punching a female manager in the face.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio paid tribute to Colin Powell, who died Monday from COVID-19 complications, saying the Harlem-born first black secretary of state exemplified the best of the Big Apple and made New Yorkers “very proud.” “General Powell served this nation with just tremendous distinction,” he said Monday morning during his daily press briefing, held remotely in City Hall. De Blasio noted Powell’s “absolute classic New York City story” of being born to Jamaican immigrants, growing up in Harlem and The Bronx and graduating from Morris High School before attending City College of New York. “Just an absolute great example...
