    The Job Creators Network is hammering Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) with a massive billboard in Times Square, as she continues to brag about her role in hampering Amazon’s plans to build a second headquarters in Queens, New York, — a project that would have helped bring some 25,000 new jobs to parts of her congressional district. “If Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spent as much time worrying about creating jobs versus killing them, the U.S. economy would be in a lot better shape than it is today.

Kathy Hochul explained Friday that legislators acted quickly on the high court's ruling because it had "destroyed the ability for a...

    A New York City good Samaritan proved that chivalry isn’t dead after she discovered a wallet containing thousands of dollars in Times Square — and got it back to its rightful owner.

    Molly and Beth Davis agree that mother knows best. That includes when it comes to finding a man for daughter Molly — even if it takes a billboard in Times Square. Last week, mom Beth did just that, when a 47-foot-by-25-foot ad went up at the crossroads of the world, right above Tonic. “Date my daughter” it reads, with a photo of 30-year-old Molly and the URL for her dating profile. It’s all part of Beth’s quest “to know I am leaving her in good hands.” Beth, a 61-year-old from Boston, was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004 and...

    New York City is only allowing a limited number of spectators to watch the ball drop in Times Square this New Year’s Eve, but they will be required to show proof of vaccination as well as wear a mask. This year’s New Year’s Eve in Times Square will be a bit unconventional, as was last year’s. This year, the city is capping the number of in-person spectators to 15,000 as opposed to the tens of thousands of individuals who typically attend the annual event.
