    A lucky Brooklyn man went on a joyride in a pricey, brand-spanking-new silver Range Rover on Friday morning after having just won $10 million in the lottery — again. Wayne Murray, 63, was spotted leaving his $800,000 East Flatbush home in the luxury top-of-the-line wheels after scoring $10 million on a scratch-off ticket this week — and having previously won $10 million playing the New York Lottery just a little over a year ago. Murray, whose home rings in at $815,400 on Zillow, drove off in a 2024 Range Rover SV, which start at $209,000 and can top over $234,000,...

    A Queens landlord was killed by her teen tenant during a fight that erupted this week when he failed to make good on rent, authorities said Thursday. Davi Vidal, 19, lashed out at Leo Zoraida, 55, around 5:15 p.m. Tuesday inside their building on 96th Street near Northern Boulevard in East Elmhurst, cops said. Vidal hadn’t been paying rent, sparking the deadly altercation with Zoraida. Cops say the landlord was found unconscious and unresponsive with scratches on her face inside an apartment.

    A 15-year-old boy was slashed in the face, possibly with a box cutter, inside his Bronx charter school Thursday — the third burst of Big Apple student violence in as many days, according to cops and police sources. The unidentified student was rushed to Lincoln Hospital in stable condition following the attack at the AECI Charter School in Melrose, cops said. Another 15-year-old boy was taken into custody, but no further details are immediately available, police said. The two students were “fooling around” when one of them pulled out what’s believed to be a box cutter and slashed the other’s...

    Harrowing video shows the moment a man eating alone in a Washington Heights fish restaurant was shot point-blank in the head during a stickup. The violent incident occurred at the Seafood King Fish Market at Broadway and West 163rd Street just before 2 a.m. Wednesday, when the 37-year-old victim was having a late-night dinner at the counter. Footage released by the NYPD shows a masked robber holding a distinctive blue handgun just inches from the back of the customer’s head as he sits hunched over.

    New York’s luckiest man strikes again. A Brooklyn man won $10 million on a scratch-off this week — a little over a year after he won his first $10 million playing the New York Lottery, the lottery said. Wayne Murray got a top prize Tuesday while playing the New York Lottery’s 200X scratch-off game. Last year, he won $10 million playing the Black Titanium game, lottery officials said. Both of his winning tickets were purchased at the same store, H&A Gas & Convenience on Avenue H in Flatbush. For his latest win, Murray opted to take home his cash prize...
  • NYC comptroller strips Mayor Eric Adams of power to strike emergency migrant service deals with contractors without approval - as city spends $1.7BN catering to 146,000 asylum seekers who have flooded Big Apple

    A New York City comptroller has revoked Mayor Eric Adams’ emergency right to make deals with contractors for migrant services without prior approval. Comptroller Brad Lander’s office made the revocation known in a letter dated this past Thursday, three months after he retroactively rejected a $432million, no-bid contract with a for-profit medical services firm accused of mistreating migrants. The mayor's office has previously said the loss of such a power would slow down its response to the ongoing migrant crisis, which has seen more than 140,000 asylum seekers arrive in The Big Apple since spring 2022.

    Mayor Eric Adams tamed his own diabetes — now a report commissioned by his Health Department is recommending a well-funded citywide campaign to curb the debilitating and potentially deadly chronic disease afflicting 1 million other New Yorkers. The report calls for the opening more diabetes treatment centers in hospitals in poor neighborhoods, overhauling Medicaid reimbursement to cover more diabetes monitoring and prevention programs, expanding healthier food options in underserved communities and sponsoring public health campaigns. The report notes an increase of amputations of people with diabetes and that the chronic disease disproportionately impacts residents of color.

    A House Republican representing part of New York City says she has "smoking gun" proof that city officials are trying to help get illegal immigrants registered to vote, something the city has staunchly denied. Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, R-N.Y., announced on Sunday that she had obtained a copy of a contract between New York City’s Department of Social Services and Homes for the Homeless, a nonprofit that has been contracted to build emergency migrant shelters as the border crisis depletes the city’s resources. In an appendix of that contract, a copy of which was obtained by Fox News Digital, the city...

    A neglected Bronx subway underpass has turned into a hellish open-air drug market that’s making locals afraid to even walk down the street — and has at least one local pol seeing red. The Kingsbridge D-train underpass has been plagued by rampant drug use since the end of the pandemic, with zombie-like addicts shooting up in public — and no one is doing anything about it, according to residents and City Councilman Oswald Feliz (D-Bronx).

    Hundreds of Big Apple supermarket and bodega owners are arming themselves as the epidemic of violent theft continues to plague their businesses. Over the past year, the United Bodegas of America and the Bodega and Small Business Group said they’ve helped at least 230 store owners apply for their gun licenses, connecting them with concealed-carry classes required by the state to obtain a permit. The National Supermarket Association, which represents roughly 600 independent grocers, estimated a quarter of its members in the city are packing heat, compared to 10% pre-pandemic. “You see the necessity because the city is getting out...

    She really aired her dirty laundry. A Bedford-Stuyvesant woman who apparently came home to find her boyfriend in bed with another woman went berserk, tossing his clothes and other items from her sixth-floor balcony in a caught-on-video tirade. Neighbors watched, and filmed, as shirts and pants piled up and snagged in a tree below the scorned girlfriend’s Atlantic Avenue apartment. “Oh wow, she’s giving them a show,” exclaimed a neighbor who recorded the rampage from a few floors below. The 34-year-old woman was so enraged by the alleged cheater, that she stripped naked during the Nov. 20 rampage, police and...

    Climate activists angered opera fans at the Metropolitan Opera in New York City, by standing up and screaming during an opening night performance of Tannhäuser, Thursday. Radical climate group Extinction Rebellion, NYC, took credit for the protest on social media, and shared videos of the disruptions. Halfway through the second act of the performance, several protesters stood up and demanded an end to fossil fuels. One man scolded the audience to "wake up" to the "climate emergency," before unfolding a black banner that said, "No opera on a dead planet." "Wake up! The stream is polluted! The stream is tainted!...

    New Yorkers can only dream about the thrill of the open road as a new survey reveals they spend more of their lives stuck in traffic than drivers anywhere in the US. **SNIP** New York has increased its unwanted lead since last year and the findings were released just hours after New York's Traffic Mobility Review Board released its congestion pricing plan that could see drivers slapped with extra fees of up to $36. Drivers of cars, SUVs and pickup trucks would be charged $15 a day to enter Manhattan below 60th Street. Small trucks would be charged $24, commercial...

    Hundreds of pro-Palestinian protesters swarmed the streets surrounding Rockefeller Center Wednesday, clashing with NYPD cops and chanting “river to the sea,” long seen as an antisemetic slogan, in an effort to derail the annual tree lighting in support of Gaza. Waving Palestinian flags and signs calling for the “end to genocide,” the ralliers gathered along Sixth Avenue alongside hordes of tourists waiting in line to see the iconic ceremony. Unable to get to the NYC Christmas tree, the enormous crowd instead swarmed around the tree outside the News Corp building, which houses The Post and Fox News, and has already...

    Self-proclaimed hamburger scholar George Motz made a documentary and a Travel Channel show devoted to burgers, he’s traversed the country to find the best beefy offerings and he wrote several meaty books, including “Hamburger America, a State-by-State Guide to Great Burger Joints,” which was lauded by Anthony Bourdain. Now, Motz is flipping the patty, opening his own place in Soho called Hamburger America. “I never had a plan to open a restaurant,” the Long Island native told The Post. “I started with a film on burgers and then got into cooking them. It was definitely an inverse to the usual...

    Mayor Eric Adams’ administration is proposing changes to the zoning law to make it easier for casinos to locate in New York City. The current zoning law makes no mention of casinos, leaving a state-approved gaming facility in the five boroughs vulnerable to litigation — putting the city at a disadvantage with casinos eyeing sites in the surrounding suburbs, city officials said. Nassau County already approved a lease for Sands to operate a casino at the Nassau Coliseum site, though it is currently tied up in litigation.

    Argentina’s new president Monday visited the Queens grave of one of the most revered rabbis in modern history, paying his respects as he met with Jewish leaders in the Big Apple. Javier Milei — a firebrand libertarian and outspoken admirer of Israel who has been fostering a close relationship with New York’s Hasidic community since well before his Oct. 22 election victory — stopped at the Ohel, the gravesite of the Chabad Lubavitcher Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson. Donning a yarmulke and flanked by Hasidic community leaders, Milei, who is Catholic, somberly toured the rebbe’s final resting place, where he shared...

    Working class residents are fleeing New York City because it’s too expensive, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Monday. The congresswoman made the claim during a discussion of the migrant crisis and Mayor Eric Adams’ controversial across-the-board proposed budget cuts that would shrink the police force and trim spending on schools, libraries and cultural arts programs. During her tele-town hall meeting, she wondered why the mayor and council weren’t looking to boost taxes on the wealthy — such as pricey pied-à-terre or luxury crash pads for the jet-setting ultra rich.
