    A 95-year-old Korean War veteran said he was given less than two months’ notice to figure out where he was going to live after the nursing home he resided in was sold to become a facility for undocumented migrants. Veteran Frank Tammaro joined Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, R-N.Y., a vocal critic of New York City’s handling of the migrant crisis, at a press conference on Monday to discuss the reported deal. "The thing I'm annoyed about is how they did it, it was very disgraceful what they did to the people in Island Shores," Tammaro said, referencing the assisted living facility...

    A Staten Island judge ruled Tuesday that a former school being used in the New York City borough to shelter hundreds of migrants must be vacated. The ruling from Staten Island Supreme Court Justice Wayne Ozzi comes after hundreds of locals took to the streets a month ago to protest the city’s decision to house migrants at the site of the St. John Villa Academy, citing safety concerns in the area as the building is positioned near other schools. “It is refreshing to know that there are jurists in our system, like Judge Ozzi, who understand our concerns with having...

    Staten Island secession might not be a bad thing — for New York City’s crime stats. Murders in the “forgotten” borough have surged 129% so far this year over last year, to 16 from seven. Major crimes are up in every category and 17% overall, according to NYPD data through Sept. 10. By contrast, murders citywide are down 10%, to 280 from 311 this year. And major crimes have dipped 0.2%, the data shows.

    Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, R-N.Y., is calling for Staten Island to break away from the rest of New York City over Democrat Mayor Eric Adams’ handling of the migrant crisis. “What we’re simply asking is, for common sense. We want the mayor to end this. Stop doing what you’re doing and listen. Secure the damn border. We do not have a border. We do not have a nation,” Malliotakis said during a protest at a former Catholic school turned migrant shelter in the borough. “If you’re not going to do your job, mayor, then let Staten Island secede.” The call was...

    The audacity! Staten Island elected officials are making it known to City Hall and the Biden administration to halt plans to use Fort Wadsworth as a possible migrant shelter site, charging that doing so would violate federal protections of national historic landmarks. “We write to you with great concern and deep disappointment regarding the recent proposal to repurpose Fort Wadsworth, a historic site on Staten Island, as a migrant shelter,” wrote a bipartisan group of borough electeds Monday led by Republican Rep. Nicole Malliotakis in a letter addressed to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, Secretary of the Interior...

    The 13-year-old boy shot in a possible targeted attack at a Staten Island playground has died of his injuries, police said Tuesday — as law enforcement sources revealed that an older teen shooter was nabbed in connection to the deadly violence. The younger teen, identified by the NYPD as Jamoure Harrell, was shot in the head by two masked gunmen just before 4 p.m. Friday inside Reverend Doctor Maggie Howard Playground, near NYCHA’s Stapleton Houses, according to cops. Jamoure was rushed to Richmond University Medical Center, where he was initially listed in critical condition and succumbed to his injuries Monday,...

    Former President Trump on Tuesday morning suggested his criminal case over a hush money payment during the 2016 campaign should be moved out of Manhattan to nearby Staten Island, an idea his own attorney dismissed days earlier as premature. “Very unfair venue, with some areas that voted 1% Republican. This case should be moved to nearby Staten Island – Would be a very fair and secure location for the trial,” Trump wrote on Truth Social hours before he was set to be arraigned in Manhattan. In the 2020 election, 57 percent of Staten Island voters backed Trump, compared to 42...

    A trove of long-hidden FBI files shed light on how slain Gambino boss Frank “Franky Boy” Cali ascended from a family soldier in the 1990s to head of the powerful crime syndicate until his shocking killing in 2019. The heavily redacted files, obtained by The Post through a Freedom of Information Act request, offer to date perhaps the most revealing look into Cali’s rise to power — as the mafia kingpin was known as a “ghost” who kept an extremely low profile to avoid federal prosecution. Cali — who was gunned down outside his Staten Island mansion at 53 —...

    The ShopRite worker arrested for allegedly hitting Rudy Giuliani on the back inside a Staten Island supermarket walked free from court Monday after his charges were downgraded. Daniel Gill, 39, who was still dressed in his ShopRite uniform following his Sunday arrest, kept his head down and refused to answer questions as he left Staten Island Criminal Court after his arraignment Monday. His charges were downgraded to third-degree assault, third-degree menacing, and second-degree harassment over the caught-on-camera attack inside the supermarket. Gill, who had no priors, was initially charged with second-degree assault involving a person over age 65. Judge Gerianne...

    A Staten Island judge lifted mask mandates for toddlers citywide Friday — but Mayor Eric Adams vowed shortly after to keep the rule in place, citing a new COVID-19 variant and saying the city is appealing the judgement. The ruling by Richmond County State Supreme Court Judge Ralph Porzio struck down the city rule requiring kids ages 2 to 4 wear masks — rendering it immediately unenforceable in schools and daycares and calling it “arbitrary, capricious and unreasonable,” according to court documents. “It’s effective immediately,” attorney Michael Chessa said Friday after arguing for a permanent injunction of the ongoing face...

    A Big Apple health inspector carrying out random COVID compliance checks was refused entry to a Staten Island bar — because she couldn’t show her own proof of vaccination. Stunned bar manager Maggie Koronilian, 38, told The Post on Friday how she had to boot the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene employee from Big Nose Kate’s Saloon and Eatery on Tuesday. “I don’t understand how you’re coming here enforcing something and not cooperating with the very thing that you’re trying to enforce,” she said of the Big Apple’s stringent Key to NYC rules for bars and restaurants.

    The New York City Council Chamber voted to remove a historic statue of former President Thomas Jefferson, citing his history as a slave owner. The statue, commissioned by a U.S. Navy commodore in 1833, spent 187 years in the City Council’s chambers before being removed from its pedestal Monday, according to the New York Post. Approximately a dozen Marshall Fine Arts workers surrounded the structure with wooden and foam boards before using a pulley system to lower it into the downstairs rotunda and carrying it out the back door, the Post reported “Removing a monument without a public conversation about...
