    The rolling wipeout of beloved New York City restaurants, which claimed the fabled 21 Club two weeks ago, might only be getting started. And as painful as it would be to food lovers, it would hurt landlords even more as retail vacancies of all kinds mushroom in each of the five boroughs.
  • Bizarre, Twisting Skyscraper Proposed for NYC

    A Turkey-based architecture firm is proposing some big changes to the New York City skyline. The Sarcostyle Tower, designed by Hayri Atak Architectural Design, looks like no skyscraper on the face of the planet, with its curved, sloping design and sinuous curves. “Sarcostyle” is a filament that makes up striated muscle fiber, and it’s easy to see where the building gets its name, given its anatomically inspired form. Seesaws at U.S.-Mexico border win prestigious UK design prize According to Atak, one of the “impressive” effects of the building is “that it creates an image in the mind that is tangent...

  • The media are lying about the 1776 Report

    The Washington Examiner ^ | 19 Jan, 2021 | Kaylee McGhee White
    President Trump created the 1776 Commission by executive order last year as part of an effort to counter the leftist narrative taking over our public schools. Unsurprisingly, the commission’s first report has been met with nothing but hostility. Spurred in part by the New York Times’s ahistorical 1619 Project, the 1776 Report seeks to correct some of the central claims made by the 1619 Project’s authors and provide an answer to the Left’s overly negative interpretation of American history. Contrary to what the 1619 Project might suggest, the American Revolution was not fought to preserve the institution of slavery, the...
  • The NYC exodus that de Blasio refuses to see

    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...

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel considers it “problematic” that Twitter would toss President Trump off its social media platform, saying through a spokesmen Monday that the president’s ability to express his opinion is a fundamental right of “elementary significance.” “This fundamental right can be intervened in, but according to the law and within the framework defined by legislators — not according to a decision by the management of social media platforms,” Merkel spokesman Steffen Seibert told reporters in Berlin. “Seen from this angle, the chancellor considers it problematic that the accounts of the U.S. president have now been permanently blocked,” he...

    In the days before he hanged himself, it was the clock that kept Michael Evans up at night. President of the public-private consortium, Moynihan Station Development Corp., Evans, 40, had already spent the better part of his professional career working on the conversion of the James A. Farley Post Office into the gleaming, light-filled $1.6 billion train hall at Penn Station, which opened Jan. 1. The Art Deco clock, which is suspended from the center of the 255,000-square-foot waiting area for Amtrak and Long Island Rail Road, was not part of the original renderings for the station. Evans, a handsome...

    The mass exodus from New York City amid the COVID-19 crisis has cost $34 billion in lost income, according to a new study released Tuesday. About 3.57 million people fled New York City between Jan. 1 and Dec. 7 this year — and they were replaced by some 3.5 million people earning lower average incomes, the findings from Unacast said. That means the Big Apple lost a net 70,000 people during the pandemic. ... Tribeca, population 20,000, took the biggest hit out of the three — with a net loss of 3,500 residents — equaling a net income loss of...

    As vaccines began being put into arms in New York City and indoor dining was shut down again Monday, Mayor Bill de Blasio warned that additional restrictions could be coming — potentially including a return to a full shutdown. “There’s the potential of having to do a full pause, a full shutdown, in the coming weeks, because we can’t let this kind of momentum go,” de Blasio said on CNN when asked about comments made by Gov. Andrew Cuomo last week, in which the state’s top executive said a fuller shutdown could be in the offing this winter.

    Six city lawmakers are suing to block the Big Apple’s embattled Board of Elections from rolling out a new ranked-choice voting system next year, claiming officials have failed to prepare for the potentially confusing switchover. The lawsuit is the latest salvo lobbed by mainstays of the Brooklyn Democratic Party against the new elections system, which will do away with the runoff elections that Gotham’s political machines have dominated for decades.

    With the Metropolitan Transportation Authority facing a budget crisis, New Yorkers may have to dig into their pockets to help out. Under a new proposed bill, New York City residents would be required to pay a $3 surcharge on packages they ordered online, with the exception for medicine and food. Assemblyman Robert Carroll, who proposed the bill, says the online shopping fee would raise more than $1 billion a year "to fund the operating costs of buses and subways in the city of New York."

    New York City’s blood supply is so low that the de Blasio administration is dangling prizes to donors — including a year’s worth of Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Hizzoner pitched his answer to the blood health crisis at a press briefing Tuesday — where it was revealed the city only has enough of a supply stocked up for about three days, as opposed to the usual seven days.

    Rather than being an 'enslaver,' Hamilton opposed slavery, advocated for manumission, and supported enslaved and freed blacks to the extent that his limited means allowed.The New York Times has done it again. On the heels of its infamous 1619 Project, a “culture reporter” at the so-called newspaper of record writes that Alexander Hamilton “bought, sold and personally owned slaves” and was an “enslaver.”Historians and biographers have debated the status of Hamilton as a slaveowner for decades, but a new essay titled “As Odious and Immoral a Thing: Alexander Hamilton’s Hidden History as an Enslaver,” written by Jessie Serfilippi, a historical...

Terrifying cellphone video captured Zou making a U-turn and slamming his car into his rival, who went bouncing...

    A prominent Brooklyn couple was sued by the city on Tuesday for allegedly trying to kick tenants out of their building in spite of a pause on evictions during the pandemic. The landlords, so-called “eco-builder” Gennaro Brooks-Church and his ex-wife Loretta Gendville, the former owner of a hipster kids’ boutique empire, are accused of harassing the inhabitants of their Crown Heights home in July to get them to move out. The incident made headlines over the summer when a group of protesters managed to stop what officials had blasted as a heartless and illegal eviction of tenants from the three-story...
