  • NYC Mayor Eric Adams Finally Lifts COVID Vaccine Mandates for Public Employees—but Won’t Automatically Reinstate Thousands of Fired Workers

    New York City Mayor Eric Adams said in a statement Monday that the Big Apple is dropping its mandatory COVID-19 vaccine mandate for public employees—but also said that the nearly 2,000 people fired for refusing the vax will not automatically get their jobs back and instead will have to reapply.It’s exactly this kind of capricious and cruel response that has made so many Americans distrustful of COVID policies from the Federal Government to the local level.Adams tweeted out the news:With more than 96 percent of city workers and more than 80 percent of New Yorkers having received their primary #COVID19...
  • Migrants Fleeing Crime-Ridden NYC for ‘Better Quality of Life’ in Canada

    Migrants are reportedly fleeing daily from New York City to escape the city’s homelessness, public drug abuse, and crime-ridden streets for a “better quality of life” in Canada. According to sources and migrants who spoke to the New York Post, border crossers who arrived in the sanctuary city on buses mostly from Texas are fleeing the city for Canada where they hope to permanently resettle.

    Manhattan Contrarian ^ | 4 Feb, 2023 | Francis Menton
    Here in New York, both State and City, we have supposedly committed ourselves by law to ambitious greenhouse gas reduction targets that are somehow going to “save the planet.” The targets for a few years out are completely impossible to achieve, and have been adopted without any meaningful consideration of whether the technology to meet them even exists short of leaving large numbers of people without heat or electricity. Sooner or later we will run at full speed into the green energy wall, but exactly when and how that will occur remains undetermined. Maybe the first crunch will come via...
  • Inside New York's migrant hotels: A once-trendy Manhattan hotel has become a wild “free-for-all” of sex, drugs and violence

    As you may recall, one part of New York City’s brilliant plan to deal with the flood of illegal migrants being shipped to the Big Apple from our open southern border was to commandeer some of the city’s pricey hotels (at taxpayer expense) and convert them into “temporary” shelters. Two of the businesses appropriated in this fashion are the once-elegant Row NYC in Manhattan and the Watson Hotel in Hell’s Kitchen. I say “once-elegant” because investigative reporters have been touring both of these establishments and finding that they are no longer recognizable. One worker at Row NYC has spilled the...
  • So where does that migrant entitlement mentality come from in New York City? Look to what the illegal aliens heard (and saw) from their government, growing up in Venezuela

    American Thinker ^ | 02/01/2023 | Monica Showalter
    As if the cost alone weren't enough to make the millions of illegal migrants brought in by Joe Biden's open borders unpopular here, the ingratitude and entitlement mentality of these illegals now seals the deal. According to National Review:More than 50 migrants camped outside the Watson Hotel in Manhattan in protest on Sunday night as the city sought to move the single male migrants to a new shelter at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal to make space for migrant families.The new shelter holds as many as 1,000 single adult men and provides the same services the migrants had been receiving, city...

    You can say this for the migrants demanding more free stuff from City Hall: They’re fast learners about the new American ethos of endless entitlement. Schooled and led by far-left activists, they arrive here within days of illegally crossing the southern border and claiming asylum, then start agitating for better accommodations in pricey neighborhoods. Tents in the Bronx, barracks in Brooklyn or homeless shelters anywhere are not good enough. Only first-class Manhattan hotels, where the city pays upward of $500 a night per room, are acceptable. The welcome wagon comes with free food, free cellphones, free transit passes, free school...

    A pair of gun-toting bandits robbed 13 people in three boroughs during a wild two-hour crime spree early Tuesday — only to crash their minivan as they were about to raid a fourth borough, police said. One of the suspects boasted he’d be back on the streets in no time when he was arrested at the crash scene Tuesday morning. “In 24 hours I’ll be out on bail,” he vowed as he was put into a police cruiser in handcuffs, according to Fox 5 News. His accomplice, believed to be 24, was nabbed a short time after, cops said. A...
  • Migrants Still Not Leaving NYC Hotel, Demand Free Stays at ‘Vacant Luxury Apartments’ on Billionaires Row

    Border crossers, who arrived on buses from Texas, are still not leaving a New York City hotel where they were placed, for free, by Mayor Eric Adams (D). Instead of shelters, the border crossers are demanding to be set up in “vacant luxury apartments” on Billionaires Row. Last week, as Breitbart News reported, city officials sought to move single male adult border crossers out of the Watson Hotel in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan where Adams’ administration had initially placed them as part of his migrant hotels plan. Many of the border crossers, though, refused to leave and set...

    They’re icing out rats in Battery Park City. Local maintenance crews are dumping dry ice in the pesky rodents’ burrows in the trendy Lower Manhattan neighborhood so that when it melts, it leaves behind carbon dioxide, which suffocates them. “Here in Battery Park City, we’re no stranger to having rodents, and so we wanted to make sure that we were able to manage them while keeping everything chemical-free,” Ryan Torres, vice president of parks operations at the Battery Park City Authority, recently told The Post. In addition to effectively killing rats, dry ice is hailed as an environmentally sound way...

    A source told Fox News that NYC wanted the contracts with the city and the hiring to be determined with a 'racial equity' lens EXCLUSIVE – Mayor Eric Adams' New York City forced all of its employees into a radical critical race theory-inspired training, according to a copy of the training reviewed by Fox News Digital. The "mandatory" training was sent to all New York City employees with a March 6 deadline. "The training provides all NYC employees with a framework to understand… the importance of racial equity… in the workplace," the email said. The controversial lens expressed in the...

    Back in October, New York City Mayor Eric Adams made a joint announcement with Governor Kathy Hochul regarding a new public safety plan for the Big Apple. Dubbed the “Cops, Cameras and Care” program, they claimed that they would be adding more than one thousand additional police officers to the MTA force patrolling the subways. More surveillance cameras would be installed and they would begin moving most of the homeless out of the tunnels and into shelters. The state would provide a significant chunk of the money needed to make that happen. I’ll confess to having been a bit dubious...

    A new gold statue that pays tribute to Ruth Bader Ginsburg's fight for abortion rights has been called 'satanic' and mocked for its horns and tentacles after it was unveiled in New York. The eight-foot sculpture, named 'NOW,' stands on the courthouse of the Appellate Division building in the Flatiron District, alongside statues of famed lawmakers like Moses, Confucius and Zoroaster....The sculpture's hair is like a ram's horns and its arms have been replaced with protruding tentacles.

    Mayor Eric Adams strode into Cipriani Wall Street, packed with the city’s civic and business elite, to tout a highly ambitious, thinly sketched plan to reinvigorate the city’s commercial districts. “We’re going to show the country why we are New York, and this new New York conversation is going to show how together we get all cylinders operating on the same engine to regain our economy, regain our city, and we leave no one behind,” he said. That plan would include more bus lanes, electric-vehicle charging stations, and converting official buildings to residential use. In recent weeks, he announced an...

    The man accused of brutally killing a 74-year-old Upper West Side woman during a burglary is the former super of her building who once did 20 years in prison for gutting a man, prosecutors said Sunday. Ex-con Lashawn Mackey, 47, of Brooklyn was ordered held without bail Sunday evening on charges of murder, attempted murder and burglary in the slaying of elderly Maria Hernandez, who was found bound and gagged face-down under a pile of clothes inside her apartment Wednesday night. “This is a particularly brutal homicide,” Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Maxine Rosenthal said at Mackey’s arraignment. “She had extensive...

    Officers first responded to the Macy's incident just after 8.30pm on January 9. The law enforcement officials immediately began searching for a vehicle that fled the scene after the theft. During their search, officers located a vehicle driving on Ring Road in Garden City. The driver of the vehicle was said to have been committing multiple traffic violations, according to police. Officers pulled over the vehicle, a 2006 BMW with fake plates, after Meza allegedly failed to use a turn signal. After being taken into custody, they told one of the detective's about how they came to New York, according...

    Chase Bank says it has begun closing formerly 24/7 ATM vestibules at 5 p.m. or 6 p.m. in the New York City area as a result of the “rising crime and vagrancy” in the city. The U.S.-based national bank shared the news in response to a Twitter user’s question last week. “Our apologies. We decide to close several ATM vestibules at 5PM or 6PM, aligning the hours of service to that of the normal branch hours, due to rising crime and vagrancy that occurred in these previously 24/7 vestibules,” Chase Bank’s customer service team wrote in a tweet.
