    An encouraging moment from last night in NYC. Although (a) one of the protesters later claimed he thought the “looters” were undercover NYPD detectives acting as agents provocateurs to make the demonstrators look bad, which, ah, okay, and (b) there’s been enough damage to Target outlets already that the company’s being forced to go dark notwithstanding last night’s heroics. Dozens of stores will close temporarily across the nation (but especially in Minnesota) until things calm down. The Brooklyn store is among them. Some protestors in Brooklyn calling to loot the Target, but organizers are rushing in front of the...

    [Video at the link] The rioters had been throwing cement at the police, lighting fires, and causing other destruction. The riot in Brooklyn is being described as mayhem. Thousands of people are currently out rioting in the city. Protesters have reportedly charged the police station and a police van was also set on fire. Several hundred police officers were rushed to the 88th Precinct in Clinton Hill, where protesters tagged police cars with profane graffiti like F the police, broke their mirrors, and wrecked them, the New York Daily News reports. None of the rioters made it inside the building,...

    Back at the end of March, near the height of the pandemic outbreak in New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal at Red Hook was going to be converted to a temporary hospital to handle the anticipated overflow of COVID-19 patients. In a remarkable display of the normally stagnant bureaucracy moving at lightning speed, money for the project was found, a contractor from Texas was signed on and the work began. In only a few weeks, the facility was ready to go into operation. And now the makeshift medical center is closing without...

    A field hospital in Brooklyn, N.Y., built to deal with the coronavirus has been closed without treating a single patient. The $21 million facility was part of Governor Andrew Cuomos response to the growing number of coronavirus patients at New York City hospitals. That response included smaller facilities at the Billie Jean King Tennis Center and Stony Point (Long Island), and a huge, 1,100-bed medical center at the Javits Center. All told, the state spent upwards of $350 million on facilities that were built but never used.

Josephine Bruzzese, who is 48 and otherwise healthy, woke up on March 22 with a fever, body aches, dry cough and trouble breathing. She lost the ability to smell or taste. Her family rushed her to NYU Langone Hospital-Brooklyn in Sunset Park. She was so short of breath she couldnt speak said her 23-year-old son, James. The hospital diagnosed the mom of four with pneumonia, but with no coronavirus tests available, it sent her home as...

    Those who want us to be afraid are targeting that which gives us hope and faith. Early on Easter morning on Clifford Ave, 3 people were shot. 2 of them recovered, but 1 did not. The triple shooting in Rochester was one of a series of brutal gangland assaults in the upstate New York metropolitan area. Justin Tookie McMillan's shooting by Dvontea Alexander marked the eighth murder in Rochester. Tookies social media photos showed him flashing stacks of hundred-dollar bills and gang signals. Dvontea Alexander, his alleged shooter, appeared to have a previous criminal record. Dvontea was quickly arrested and...

After interning for several Democrats, graduating Hofstra University in 2014, and contemplating art school, Sarah Sicard wrote for a marijuana publication called the Bluntness, served as communications director for a New York city council member, and worked in corporate PR, according to her resume and online bios.

    I caught my neighbor selling illegal haircuts, so I did what any good person would do. I kept my mouth shut.When the weather permits I like to work in my little backyard here in Brooklyn. Its a 20 by 25 postage stamp of cement and dirt surrounded by the small plots of my neighbors. Over the past couple of weeks as New York City has endured its lockdown, I have noticed one neighbor, day in and day out, cutting peoples hair a few yards down. At first I thought maybe its just family haircuts, but unless this guy has old...

The Department of Environmental Protection issued two summonses to the owner of the funeral home for a foul odor.

    A resurfaced clip on "Larry King Live" in 1993 appears to show the mother of Tara Reade -- who has accused Joe Biden of past sexual assault while in the Senate -- alluding to problems her daughter faced while working as a staffer for the then-Delaware senator. In a telephone interview with Fox News on Friday night, Reade confirmed that her mother called into the show. Biden's presidential campaign has adamantly denied Reade's allegations but the video could be cited as evidence supporting Reades allegation even though her late mother, in the clip, does not specifically refer to a...

Cobble Hill Health Center CEO Donny Tuchman sent a desperate email to state Health Department officials on April 9, asking if there was a way for us to send our suspected covid patients to the hospital built inside the Javits Convention Center or the US Naval hospital ship Comfort the under-utilized federal medical facilities on Manhattans West Side.

    Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Noach Dear has died following a battle with coronavirus, his family said Sunday. The 66-year-old former City Councilman succumbed to COVID-19 early Sunday, his son-in-law Aron Hirtz told The Post. Dear served on the New York City Council 1983-2001, representing Midwood and parts of Borough Park and Bensonhurst, before he was elected to the Brooklyn Supreme Court in 2015. Former Brooklyn state Assemblyman Dov Hikind, who served in the same Borough Park neighborhood when Dear was a councilman and judge, said Sunday that the justice will be sorely missed. This is such sad news, Hikind said...

Before displaying symptoms of the coronavirus in March, Dave was isolating with his girlfriend. He thinks he might have gotten it at the...
