    Jean Kong did not know what a Revel was — until one of the scooters was within inches of her face. On July 5, she was on her way home from the park with her 2-year-old daughter, Leah. “I was crossing Second Avenue at 47th Street when a guy driving a Revel turned the wrong way and hit my baby’s stroller,” Kong, 40, told The Post. “He knocked it down and Leah fell out. I picked up my daughter, who was crying hysterically. This guy picked up his scooter, stood there for a good 30 seconds . . . and didn’t say a word as I cursed him out.” Then he took off.

    New York governor Andrew Cuomo was asked at his Friday briefing about the continued criticism of the state’s coronavirus response, particularly with respect to the thousands of deaths in nursing homes. Cuomo was asked about the response to the state Department of Health’s report and why he doesn’t just appoint an independent investigator. The governor said the following: “I don’t believe your characterization is correct. I believe it is a political issue. I think it’s the New York Post, I think it’s Michael Goodwin, I think it’s Bob McManus, I think it’s Fox TV. I think it is all politically motivated. If anybody looked at the facts, they would know that it was wholly absurd on its face. People...

    Members of the Ochs-Sulzberger family — which owns The New York Times Company — were slaveowners and held sympathetic views towards the Confederacy in the 19th century, an opinion column in the New York Post concluded. The Ochs-Sulzberger family’s reported connection to slavery and the Confederacy is linked to Adolph Ochs and his mother Bertha Levy Ochs, according to the New York Post. Ochs initiated the family’s ownership of the Times after he bought the paper in 1893. The maternal side of his family reportedly owned slaves and participated in the Civil War. A re-enactment of the Battle of Gettysburg (John Moore/Getty Images) Bertha Levy Ochs, a Jewish immigrant from Germany, lived with her paternal uncle John Mayer in Natchez,...

    The Gray Lady’s convulsions continue. Former New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson says she’s dismayed by the troubles surrounding the New York Times op-ed section, particularly the departure of its editor James Bennet after he published a commentary by a U.S. senator calling for military force to quell riots. “I don’t think that James Bennet should have been forced out at The Times,” Abramson told The Post, adding she “felt terrible” about it. “He and I worked together in the Washington Bureau of the Times and I think he is one of the great journalists of our time. So I was very sad to see him pushed out,” Abramson said. Abramson, who led the Times newsroom from September 2011...
    New York Mets: Cohen looks like the favorite to buy the team but “J-Rod” and a mystery bidder lurk By: Andres Chavez July 15, 2020 Follow ESM On Social Facebook Twitter Youtube Flipboard Instagram ShareTweet0 SharesAfter his attempt to buy the New York Mets from the Wilpons fell through in February, billionaire hedge funder Steve Cohen is once again leading the pack when it comes to the sale process. However, and according to the New York Post, a “mystery” bidder continues to lurk around with considerable odds of securing the Mets, even though Cohen remains the favorite to close the transaction this time around. According to a report by Sportico on...
    An F-16C Viper crashed during a landing Monday evening at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico and emergency crews are at the scene. The pilot of the fighter jet managed to eject and suffered minor injuries, a statement said. An investigation is underway. The incident is the fifth fighter jet crash since May and the second F-16 crash in the past two weeks. The jet, which crashed at about 6 p.m. local time, was assigned to the 49th Wing. On July 1, an Air Force pilot was killed in an F-16 crash during a “routine training mission” in South Carolina. In mid-June, a U.S. Air Force F-15C Eagle crashed into the North Sea off the coast of northern England...
    The Washington Redskins announced Monday that they will change their team name and logo after about 87 years of using it, in the wake of corporate and public pressure to ditch the moniker over racial connotations. The Navajo Nation put out a statement on the retirement of the Redskins name. “July 13, 2020 is now a historic day for all Indigenous peoples around the world as the NFL Washington-based team officially announced the retirement of the racist and disparaging “Redskins” team name and logo,” Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez wrote. “This change did not come about willingly by the team’s owners, but by the mounting pressure and advocacy of Indigenous peoples such as Amanda Blackhorse, and many other warriors who...
    More Americans are dying from coronavirus nationwide as the pandemic rages in the southern and western parts of the country, statistics show. More than 134,600 people in the US have now died of COVID-19, a figure that’s increased over the last two weeks — with 27 states, including Florida, Texas, California and Arizona, seeing a rise in fatalities. There were 802 deaths in the country on Friday alone, according to a report. In New York, however, the pandemic remained under control with the lowest average deaths and hospitalizations in the state since mid-March, Gov. Cuomo said Saturday. In the past three days, COVID-19 deaths statewide were in the single digits, with just 6 reported Friday, and hospitalizations fell to below...
    ‘I don’t think I’ve ever seen such dishonest and biased coverage of any event.” That was Brit Hume, who has been covering events for more than 50 years for Fox News, ABC News and investigative reporter Jack Anderson. The event was President Trump’s Independence Day speech at Mount Rushmore. The speech was, according to The New York Times, “dark and divisive,” designed to deliver a “divisive culture war message.” The Washington Post called it a “dystopian speech” and a “push to amplify racism.” Absent from their stories were quotations supporting racism. Nor did Illinois Democratic Sen. Tammy Duckworth supply any quotations to support her claim that Trump “spent all his time talking about dead traitors.” Trump mentioned no Confederates but...
    The Black Lives Matter Foundation must stop soliciting donations from New Yorkers, who think the organization is affiliated with the Black Lives Matter movement, the state attorney general said Monday. The California-based foundation isn’t registered as a charitable organization in New York, making it illegal for it to collect contributions in the state, according to New York Attorney General Letitia James. In a letter to the foundation’s president, Robert Ray Barnes, the AG’s office demanded that the group immediately stop soliciting donations in New York and file financial reports disclosing the amount of money it had raised. “Every organization that seeks to solicit donations from New Yorkers must follow state laws,” said James in a statement. “We will also fight...
    She beat the machine in 2018. Now, she’s got one all her own. Once dismissed as a fluke, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is proving her political power, successfully backing two progressive Congressional candidates in New York’s June 23 primaries as she cruised to victory over her own challenger, Michelle Caruso-Cabrera. AOC proved discerning in her choices: of the three primary challengers or political newcomers she endorsed at the federal level, two — Jamaal Bowman and Mondaire Jones — won, with Bowman defeating liberal stalwart Eliot Engel and Jones triumphant in the first step of his bid for retiring Rep. Nita Lowey’s seat. Ocasio-Cortez also supported Rep. Jerry Nadler, who sailed to victory. “In two short years, the progressive movement has dramatically...
    The tide of bail reform rolled back a bit Thursday, as a number of new provisions approved under April’s state budget formally kicked in. The revisions restore some power to a court system that those in law-enforcement have slammed as too weak since the initial reforms became state law on Jan. 1. A number of charges deemed ineligible for bail under that law are now, again, “qualifying offenses.” They include: sex trafficking, money laundering in support of terrorism, possession of a weapon on school grounds, vehicular assault in the first degree and any crime that proves fatal. Judges also now have the discretion to set bail in felony cases in which the defendant was on probation or postrelease supervision, as...
    How exactly does The New York Times decide who gets to remain anonymous? Our question is prompted by its move to reveal the full name of an anodyne blogger — threatening serious disruption of his life — apparently just because it can. The blog is The Slate Star Codex, written by a Bay Area psychiatrist who shares only his first and middle names, Scott Alexander. For years, he’s written on a smattering of topics, from psychiatry and pharmacology to tribalism in the era of social media and Marxism’s failings as a science. His posts early on proved prescient about the course of the coronavirus, which is what prompted a Times reporter to come calling — and announce that the story...
    It’s still called the New York Times, but good luck finding any section of the print edition that’s devoted exclusively to news from New York. The paper’s March 23 edition ran a “Note to Our Readers,” in which it said the New York section would not be appearing that day. It hasn’t returned since. “There is no separate New York section,” the March 23 note said as the coronavirus had begun ravaging the city and was seemingly the only story in town. “New York coverage is included as part of the Tracking an Outbreak section on pages A4-A13.” That was the last time the New York section was mentioned, and there has been no note to explain where it went....
    NBCUMV Real Housewives of New York Season 12 The Real Housewives of New York has released new midseason taglines for all of its castmembers. The show is currently on hiatus but will return on Thursday, July 2 at 9 pm E.T. In a video shared by Bravo on June 29, 2020, the ladies shared their new taglines, except for Tinsley Mortimer, who exited the show midseason. The new taglines make references to some of the moments we’ve seen so far on Season 12, including Luann de Lesseps’ drama from the lower level. Here are their new taglines: Dorinda Medley: “Like a mint in my mouth, I can be a bit fresh.” Leah McSweeney: “I’ll say sorry for what...
    New Jersey is “indefinitely” postponing the reopening of its restaurants for indoor dining, Gov. Phil Murphy announced Monday, citing coronavirus spikes in other parts of the country. “UPDATE: INDOOR DINING WILL NO LONGER RESUME ON THURSDAY,” the Democratic governor said in a tweet. “We had planned to loosen restrictions this week. However, after #COVID19 spikes in other states driven by, in part, the return of indoor dining, we have decided to postpone indoor dining indefinitely.” New Jersey allowed its bars and restaurants to resume at least outdoor dining June 15 — but Murphy said there is already a problem with that. “We’re also moved to pause indoor dining because of what we’ve seen in some establishments across the state. Overcrowding....
    The Judge has landed. Yankees infielder Tyler Wade posted a photo to Instagram on Saturday with Aaron Judge and his girlfriend, Samantha Bracksieck, with a private plane in the background. It included the caption “New York we’re back,” as a second spring training begins Wednesday in The Bronx for a 60-game regular season. First baseman Mike Ford and his dog Carter, along with Yankees massage therapist Doug Cecil, were also on the flight. It’s uncertain if Judge will be ready when the Yankees are scheduled to being the regular season July 23 at the Nationals. The 28-year-old outfielder is recovering from a stress fracture in his first right rib that precluded him from taking on-field batting practice or playing in...
    New York City’s perennially endangered Republicans are casting an increasingly confident eye at Gracie Mansion. As race riots, depression and a deadly pandemic continue to engulf the city, local GOP grandees believe they have a real chance at taking back the mayoralty in 2021. ”I have a theory. New Yorkers are Pavlovian Democrats. They vote Democrat and they don’t even think about it,” former GOP Mayor Giuliani told The Post. “Baltimore and Chicago are hell holes, but New York City is the city it is because every once in a while it gets so bad that New Yorkers can’t take it.” Giuliani likened his close victory over Mayor Dinkins in 1993 as one such pivot point and compared it to...
    Milton Glaser, creator of the iconic “I ♥  NY” logo — and a Manhattan graphic designer who revolutionized the visuals of advertising in the 1960s and ’70s — died on Friday on his 91st birthday, according to reports. The cause of death was a stroke, his wife of more than 50 years, Shirley, told The New York Times. While his local claim to fame was the graphically catchy, and emoji-prescient, New York logo — imparting the message “I Love New York” using just three letters and a heart — the Bronx native was a prolific designer. His noteworthy designs include a psychedelic, 1967 poster of Bob Dylan. Glaser only closed up shop on his Kips Bay offices — a 10,000...
    Recent police reform has caused a state of “lawlessness” in New York City — resulting in the surge in gun violence, a top NYPD official said in a recent interview. Chief of Crime Control Strategies Michael LiPetri blamed the troubling spike in shootings on parolees who are committing crimes with impunity. “We tie it to street lawlessness right now,” LiPetri told Fox News. “The small amount of individuals that are out there causing mayhem, they feel empowered. We see an increase in dice games on the street. We’re seeing an increase in house parties then getting violent. So the individuals that are causing these quality-of-life conditions are the very people that are then part of the violence after the fact.”...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is planning a giant “Black Lives Matter” mural for right outside Trump Tower in Manhattan. The New York Post said the mural will be painted in yellow block letters along Fifth Avenue between 56th and 57th streets. The slogan will be stenciled outside Trump Tower sometime in the next two weeks. The Post noted it comes at a time when the city is dealing with a surge in gun violence. “Obviously (the mayor) is doing it to antagonize the president,” a source told the Post. “This is what he is concerned about while the city burns. What an amateur politician.” Earlier this month, Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser renamed a street in front...
    New York’s financial regulator on Wednesday proposed new licensing rules that would make it easier for companies to engage in cryptocurrency business — using such digital currencies as bitcoin — in the state. The New York State Department of Financial Services is asking for the public’s input about the plan by Aug. 10. The initiative stems from the “actual or perceived hurdles” that firms may face in obtaining the state’s “BitLicense,” unveiled in 2015, the regulator said. New York’s proposed framework would allow companies that want to engage in virtual currency business activity in the state to obtain a conditional license, through which they would collaborate with fully licensed companies, NYDFS said. New York introduced its BitLicense and initial framework...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is finally pledging to get tough on crime in the city — but only if that crime involves fireworks. Amid a major increase in violent crime — and particularly gun violence —  that has police officials warning of a “storm on the horizon,” de Blasio announced Tuesday that he plans on creating an “illegal fireworks task force” which, Buzzfeed News reports, will “involve over 40 law enforcement officers conducting undercover buys and sting operations that target people selling fireworks in the city.” The move comes after protesters, fed up with an increase in fireworks activity in the city, gathered outside De Blasio’s home, honking their horns and demanding De Blasio bring a swift...
    Amazon has signed a lease for a 1-million-square-foot warehouse in Queens, its biggest-ever in New York City, according to a report. The deal will see Amazon knock down a former paper-making factory at 55-15 Grand Avenue in the borough’s Maspeth neighborhood, according to Business Insider (paywall), and replace it with the multi-story warehouse. The massive new facility will be custom-built to Amazon’s specifications and will include rooftop parking for its fleet of delivery vans, according to the report, which cited anonymous sources. The warehouse will be a joint project between New York’s RXR Realty firm and Los Angeles’ LBA Realty. Maspeth is a logistically advantageous location for Amazon, as its central location allows for easy trips to Manhattan, the Bronx...
    New York — East Village, NYC Photo:The Diary / Mariela Lombard A 36-year-old man died inside a residential elevator in the East Village (NYC) after the weapon he was carrying accidentally landed on his waist, according to police sources. The man, whose identity was not immediately revealed, he was adjusting his pants inside the apartment building at 635 E. 12th St when he fired the gun, hitting him in the upper left thigh around 7:21 p.m. of Saturday. A relative was with the victim at the time and called 911. The man was transported to Bellevue Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, the New York Post noted. The fatal accident occurred amid a series of...

New York's largest union of registered nurses is calling on the state's Democrat-controlled government to divert billions of dollars from jails, the New York City Police Department, and the pockets of the rich to help fund public hospitals that have been strained beyond capacity by the coronavirus pandemic. In an internal memo obtained Monday by the New York Daily News, the 42,000 member New York State Nurses Association (NYSNA) called for stripping $2 billion in funding from the NYPD, jails, and prosecutors' offices and using that money to bolster public hospitals...
    A public review panel has neutered Mayor Bill de Blasio’s plan to move the famed Charging Bull statue from its current location at Bowling Green to the front of the New York Stock Exchange, largely citing aesthetic concerns. The 11-member Public Design Commission voted unanimously to reject the alternate site on Broad Street just south of Wall Street that was proposed by the city’s Dept. of Transportation. “I am pleased that the NYC Public Design Commission today rejected the proposal to relocate Charging Bull by artist Arturo Di Modica, from the northern corner of Bowling Green Park to Broad Street near the New York Stock Exchange,” said Manny Alicandro, attorney for Di Modica. “The local community residents and Mr. Di...
    The Justice Department urged New York Mayor Bill de Blasio to relax coronavirus rules for religious gatherings shortly before the Friday evening ouster of US Attorney Geoffrey Berman — and the letter was sent despite Berman’s refusal to sign it, The Post has learned. The letter, a copy of which was obtained by The Post from Justice Department and City Hall sources, compared the mayor’s orders “to break up numerous gatherings of the Jewish community” with his “support for and participation in recent protests.” The letter was signed by civil rights division chief Eric Dreiband and sent at 5:22 p.m. on Friday — hours before Berman’s termination. The mayor’s office acknowledged receipt in a reply email. “To selectively enforce the...
    Getty Luann de Lesseps in Atlanta, 2019. Even Louis Vuitton makes mistakes … and so does The Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps. The New York Post reported that Lesseps has recently put her home in Port Ewen, NY for sale for $1.15 million. Lesseps’ home is listed on realtor.com and is 2,400 square feet, with three bedrooms, four bathrooms, and waterfront views of the Hudson River. The property is located on 243 Tilden St. and spans .85 acres with a private deck and dock for water sports such as kayaking and boating.

    The New York Police Department announced last week that it would disband its controversial "anti-crime units," impacting about 600 NYPD officers who patrolled in plainclothes. The move was applauded by those who seek immediate police reform in the wake of the tragic killing of George Floyd. "This is a seismic shift in the culture of how the NYPD polices this great city. It will be felt immediately in the communities that we protect," New York Police Commissioner Dermot F. Shea said. Unfortunately for New Yorkers, the impact of the reform was immediate — but it was not positive. According to the New York Post, shootings in the city surged after the NYPD disbanded the plainclothes units. In fact, between...

    There won’t be a soul on their feet as the beautiful animals come stampeding toward the finish line, and there won’t be any giant roar to rise up and explode out of Belmont Park and onto Hempstead Turnpike. But even though there will be no fans in the grandstand, or anywhere else at Big Sandy, they will be crowning a winner of the first Belmont Stakes that is the first leg of the Triple Crown, the first Belmont Stakes that is a mile-and-an-eighth instead of a mile-and-a-half. If you have been screaming yourself hoarse for a real live New York sporting event since the pandemic turned the world upside down, you will have the horses. Pete Alonso won’t be...
    The Mets didn’t have to look far for one of their undrafted free agent signings. Among the players they picked up was Joe Suozzi, a senior from Boston College who grew up in Glen Cove and whose father, Tom, is a congressman who represents parts of Long Island and Queens. The outfielder hardly took a traditional path to the pros. After graduating from Chaminade HS, Suozzi, went to BC without a scholarship and didn’t play for the Eagles his freshman year. As a sophomore, Suozzi walked on to the team and earned a spot. In his junior year, Suozzi hit .282 with three homers in 48 games and then got off to a fast start this year. He was hitting...
    So much for hordes of outside agitators. Only about 9 percent of demonstrators protesting the police killing of George Floyd in New York City came from outside the five boroughs, according to a location-based study. “One thing we’re seeing in New York and virtually all cities, is that most protesters were residents. There were not that many ‘thugs’ coming from outside areas — which would appear to contradict the popular narrative,” Anindya Datta, CEO of the data analytics firm Mobilewalla, told the Post. Of the 8,152 New York City protesters tracked via their cellphones during three days of protests between May 29 and May 31, the majority of outsiders came from nearby counties in New York and New Jersey, such...
    New York kids have packed on an average of almost 10 lbs during the coronavirus lockdown, according to a new study. The survey of 5,000 parents on the East Coast found kids in the region put on an average of 7 lbs since lockdowns were instituted in March, according to fitness website Total Shape. Empire state youngsters put on an average of 9.6 lbs, while children in New Jersey gained the most weight at an average of 10.2 pounds, Rhode Island kids gained the least amount, adding 2.1 lbs. The majority of parents blamed a lack of regular exercise and change in diet caused by daily routines being upended during quarantine. More than half of the parents, about 55 percent,...
    ALBANY — Gov. Andrew Cuomo will officially end his daily coronavirus press briefings on Friday, after 111 consecutive days as the pandemic comes under greater containment. “These daily briefings, while fun, take a lot of time and I’m gonna finish the daily briefings on Friday, and then we will do briefings as necessary — as I’m sure they will often be necessary,” Cuomo said during his 109th briefing Wednesday. “But we’re gonna turn the page on the immediacy of this crisis. I hope people learn from what we accomplished here in New York. I hope people around the country look at New York and say, ‘how did they do that? How did they go from the worst situation in terms...
    New York City is set to reopen under Phase 2 on Monday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Wednesday — just after Mayor Bill de Blasio called it a “day-to-day decision” and revealed restaurant guidance was still being hashed out. The mixed messages on the important step — which would allow 26,000 restaurants in the Big Apple to reopen with outdoor seating — came during the pols’ respective press briefings. “New York City is on track to enter Phase 2,” Cuomo said in Albany. “The same metrics we use for New York City are the same metrics we use all across New York City.” But earlier, the mayor was far less definitive. “If we’re judging by today’s numbers, we’re in great shape...
    The obvious things are obvious: Staggered shifts in the office. Spaced-out tables in restaurants. Hand sanitizer everywhere.  But as American businesses sketch out a post-COVID future, dozens of other changes are almost certainly on the way. And many of them are being quietly imagined now in New York City. Why wouldn’t they be? New York doesn’t only have America’s largest urban economy. With 209,000 confirmed coronavirus infections and more than 17,100 deaths, no city has a deeper hole to climb out of. Yes, the lingering threat of a deadly pandemic really does change everything, morning, noon and night. When it comes to New York night life, size suddenly matters in ways it never has before.   “The big nightclubs will have...
    This week The Post takes a fresh look at the “best of” New York sports history — areas that are just as worthy of debate, but that haven’t been argued incessantly.
