  • Cuomo proposal would raise top tax rate for New York City to 14.7%, highest combined rate in nation

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo proposed raising taxes on the wealthy to a combined level of 14.7%, which would be the highest state-and-local tax rate in the nation. The tax increase would raise $1.5 billion for the state, Cuomo said Tuesday in an address unveiling his 2022 budget proposal. The move would be part of a three-pronged approach — raising revenue, cutting expenses and borrowing — to cover the state's historic budget shortfall due to Covid-19, Cuomo said. "New York cannot manage a $15 billion deficit," according to Cuomo, who said the state's largest prior deficit was $10 billion. "It's...

    The future Hall of Fame? quarterback is calling it a careerWhile the world awaits what's expected to be a retirement decision from Drew Brees, another NFL legend has opted to make his decision quickly. Philip Rivers, 39, recently noted he'd consider retirement but was also open to returning to the Indianapolis Colts for a second year, if they'd have him. Just over one week after being eliminated from the playoffs at the hands of the Buffalo Bills in an AFC wild-card game, Rivers is instead going to hang up his cleats -- he told The San Diego Union-Tribune -- ending...
  • ESPN’s Dominique Foxworth, Other Doubters Silenced in Buffalo Bills Historic Divisional Win

    Bills fans “are people with American flags and dogs,” said ESPN commentator Dominique Foxworth back in December of 2020. Now they’re people whose team is in the AFC championship as well. For the first time since 1993, the year in which they got blown out by Troy Aikman and the Dallas Cowboys in Super Bowl XXVIII, the Buffalo Bills are headed back to the AFC Championship. It is not merely a miracle or lucky season. The team deserves it. Through the engine of 24-year-old quarterback Josh Allen and veteran wideout Stefon Diggs, the team has risen to the challenge offensively....

    By On his final day in office, Jan. 20, 2001, President Bill Clinton commuted the sentences of a pair of radical leftists serving time for bombing the U.S. Capitol building, where a 1983 blast shattered the second floor of the Senate wing. Linda Evans and Susan Rosenberg each served 16 years of lengthy sentences, with Rosenberg escaping 42 years of a 58-year sentence and Evans cutting short a 40-year sentence by 24 years. The FBI landed formal indictments on Evans and Rosenberg in the 1988 “Resistance Conspiracy” case for their involvement in the bombing of the Capitol along with five...

    Mayor de Blasio released his new, bigger-than-ever city budget this week pretending that federal aid would make up for City Hall’s losses thanks to the pandemic. And, worse than that delusion, he still hasn’t faced up to how his policies had New York shrinking long before the pandemic even began. That’s right: The mass exodus from the city dates to at least 2018; the flight since then is just adding to New York’s woes. The Health Department’s 2018 Vital Statistics report on health outcomes showed that the Big Apple’s population dropped by 223,950 residents, or 2.6 percent, between 2017 and...

Health officials warned that models have shown the B.1.1.7 strain of the virus has the...

    In March 2019, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, alongside House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, took a victory lap after the Empire State passed its “red-flag” gun law, meant to facilitate the confiscation of firearms from people deemed a risk to themselves or others. “Something has to be done, because we are literally losing human life” to gun violence, the governor said. The measure doesn’t seem to have helped. In 2018, before the red-flag law was enacted, the number of shooting victims in New York City was at its lowest since 2002. Two years later, the city saw almost 1,000 more shootings than the...

    New York City apartment tenants are more than $1 billion in debt from missed rent payments during the coronavirus pandemic, according to a new survey measuring the depth of the rent crisis brought on by Covid-19. The debt figure is the most recent indicator that unemployment benefits and federal stimulus packages have so far been inadequate to alleviate the growing financial burden of missed rent payments across thousands of city households. Both landlord and tenant advocacy groups have lobbied heavily for more government rental assistance during the pandemic. The survey, conducted by the Community Housing Improvement Program, a landlord trade...

    It’s double or nothing for Nikki Acton. While many New Yorker couples struggled with an excess of intimacy with their partners during the pandemic lockdown, Acton — a 36-year-old who works in finance just like her husband, Andrew Kobierski, 37 — told The Post that her spacious duplex apartment preserved her relationship. “The two of us were together 24/7 but could still get space from each other because of the floor plan,” Acton said of her two-level apartment on Cornelia Street in the West Village. “Otherwise, I am convinced that we would both have felt suffocated.”
