    New York is getting lapped on restaurant reopenings by a city that can’t even do pizza right. Chicago has released a 13-page list of guidelines for how its eateries can safely resume on-premises service amid the coronavirus pandemic, while Big Apple Mayor Bill de Blasio remains short on answers. The Windy City issued the pointers on Tuesday, according to Eater, painting a picture of what a night out in the city could soon look like. Tables will be placed at least six feet apart, or have a permanent barrier, such as Plexiglass, installed between them, while parties at one table...

    GREECE — The Town of Greece created a new way for restaurants to offer dine-in services. Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich announced Tuesday restaurant owners can apply for temporary outdoor seating permits. The permits will be emailed to business owners one to two days after supporting documentation is sent in, and once the permit is received, the restaurant can start offering outdoor seating immediately.
  • Deputies: Man threatened woman who attended Restart ROC rally in Pittsford (Upstate NY)

    (WHAM) - A man was arrested after Monroe County Sheriff's deputies said he blocked a woman in with his car and threatened her in Pittsford. On May 16, Monroe County Sheriff's deputies were called to French Road in Pittsford around 1:45 p.m. When they arrived, a woman said she had left a 'RestartROC' rally to protest against businesses being closed in the Rochester area. The rally was held at Pittsford Plaza early in the afternoon. After leaving, the woman said she was driving down French Road when a car stopped suddenly next to a parked van so that no traffic...
  • Wait, what? Here’s how Chris Cuomo purportedly got his hands on the ‘less safe version’ of hydroxychloroquine [screenshots]; UPDATE: It gets weirder [video]

    05/20/2020 4:36:57 PM PDT · by dalight · 31 replies ^ | May 20, 2020 | Sarah D.
    As Twitchy told you, Kayleigh McEnany took Chris Cuomo to the woodshed this afternoon over his mockery of Donald Trump professing to be taking hydroxychloroquine. McEnany pointed out that Cuomo — and his wife — had taken quinine, a “less safe version” that’s been off the market for years: Chloroquine is a derivative of quinine. A derivative that, unlike quinine, is actually regularly prescribed as a treatment for certain conditions like lupus. And there’s still more Fredo-ness where that came from. As Price also points out, Mr. and Mrs. Cuomo didn’t exactly go through ideal channels to obtain their quinine:...

    CHRIS Cuomo is taking at least 45 pills a day to recover from coronavirus, and CBD for the pain. This and his daily sauna sessions are all on the advice of an energy medicine physician, who also developed a menu of foods he should eat while battling COVID-19. The CNN anchor's wife Cristina Greeven Cuomo shared what she has been giving her husband in hopes that it might help others who are struggling with patients at home. "Since this particular virus has no proven remedy, the plan we set in place was to use oxygenated herbs to get ahead of...

    Yesterday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott tweeted this comparison of California, Texas, Florida and New York. It is simple but interesting in several respects: Hmmm… — Greg Abbott (@GregAbbott_TX) May 18, 2020 Obviously, the comparison undermines the liberal conceit that shutdown orders save lives. Many similar comparisons have been done, generally supporting the same conclusion, like this one. It is also noteworthy that the states with the lowest taxes also have balanced budgets, while New York and California, despite sky-high income tax rates, can’t make ends meet. There are a number of reasons why people are moving out of...
  • Andrew Cuomo Explains Placing Wuhan Patients in Nursing Home Deaths by Saying ‘Old People Die, That Is Going to Happen’

    One of the great tragedies, among many, of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s attempt to use the Wuhan virus as a way of getting federal dollars to fill an $6 billion in his state budget was his decision that nursing home residents were expendable. In March, as Cuomo and his braintrust were running about like beheaded chickens shouting about models and Italy, his administration issued an order that required nursing homes to accept hospital patients recovering from Wuhan virus even if those patients were still contagious. The ostensible reason was moving recovering patients to nursing homes freed up hospital beds...

    He traded blue and white for jailhouse khaki. New York Giants cornerback DeAndre Baker turned himself in to Florida authorities Saturday to face four counts of armed robbery with a firearm and four counts of aggravated assault, police said. The 22-year-old, second-year defensive back surrendered to the Miramar Police Department at around 9:30 a.m., a spokeswoman said. Baker, Seattle Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar and two others are accused of ripping off $12,800, pricey Swiss watches - including a $18k Rolex, $25k Hubolt, and a $17,500 Audemars Piguet - along with other valuables at a Miramar house party Wednesday night. Baker...

    They’re partying like it’s 2019. Lockdown-weary New Yorkers ditched the distancing to get social instead this weekend - transforming parts of the Big Apple into a raucous, late-season Mardi Gras. Yet the city’s COVID-be-damned attitude was nothing compared with the scene in Belmar, NJ, a beach popular with Staten Islanders and Brooklynites. Huge crowds waited shoulder-to-shoulder on the boardwalk for their turn to buy beach badges. “The line for beach badges was like four non-socially distanced blocks long,” tweeted Jarrett Seidler, who described the boardwalk as “obscenely packed.” Outside popular bars on the Upper East Side, the Upper West Side,...

    Disturbing footages shows the forceful arrest of a mom by NYPD and MTA officers in front of her toddler for her mask etiquette on the New York subway. Not properly wearing a mask in New York City can get you thrown to the ground, handcuffed, and arrested. It doesn’t even matter if your young child is there to witness it all. That’s the message from a video of one mom’s arrest by a large group of NYPD and MTA officers for her mask etiquette in a New York City subway station this week.

    New York lawmakers have some to the defense of congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez following a report which claims that her fellow democrats are avoiding her while they plan to combat the coronavirus. The report from the New York Post claims that Cortez's peers are ignoring her over fears she will overshadow the work they are doing to combat the virus in an area with one of the highest infection rates in the entire world. The report, based on unnamed sources, claims that Ocasio-Cortez "simply rubs many of her fellow New York Democrats the wrong way." Ocasio-Cortez has become one the most...

    NEW YORK - New York City hit a grim milestone this week, recording more than 20,000 coronavirus deaths throughout the five boroughs. Or did it? According to Gov. Andrew Cuomo's office, the city is still weeks away from that mark, with thousands fewer deaths in its tally - and public health experts say the state's lag is a problem. The enduring feud and routine miscommunication between Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio is among the few things in New York that has not been slowed by the pandemic. But the fact that the two can't even agree on how many...

    The mainstream media, as Barack Obama once said, is all wee-weed up for Andrew Cuomo, New York’s Democratic governor. “Andrew Cuomo may be the single most popular politician in America right now,” CNN wrote earlier this month. “Andrew Cuomo Is the Control Freak We Need Right Now,” The New York Times wrote. “Cuomo Could Be The Leader The Democratic Party And Nation Desperately Need,” The Washington Post wrote. But let’s take a look at Mr. Cuomo’s actions as governor to see if all the breathless praise is warranted. **SNIP** In fact, New York has more deaths than the next five...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was bounced Tuesday from the Working Families Party ballot line by a Queens judge, raising the stakes in her potentially tricky Democratic primary fight for reelection. The firebrand lawmaker collected just 13 signatures from members of the small union-backed party, two short of what she needed to get on its primary ballot. Now, AOC won’t be on the WFP ballot line in the November general election either, said Martin Connor, a lawyer for Michelle Caruso-Cabrera, AOC’s opponent in the Democratic race. “AOC has hurt working people of the Bronx and Queens with her votes and creates disunity...

    Some areas of New York state will be allowed to reopen Friday, beginning the “next big step in this historic journey,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) announced Monday. Three upstate regions will be allowed to reopen in a phased manner after meeting metrics laid out by the state government, Cuomo said. But areas of the state that have been hardest hit by COVID-19, including New York City and Long Island, have not yet met those requirements as of Monday. “In my point of view, we’re on the other side of the mountain,” Cuomo said during a news conference. “We have abated...

    Howard Lorber anticipates slow sales to continue until fall. Douglas Elliman is preparing for an unforgiving market ahead. During an earnings call for the brokerage’s parent company, Elliman chairman Howard Lorber said the firm cut staff by 25 percent, reduced all salaries by 15 percent and is seeking to consolidate offices and negotiate “rent reductions, deferrals or holidays” with landlords nationwide. And that’s despite not yet feeling the full effects of the “severe decline” in sales activity. At the end of last year, the brokerage had 125 office leases in the seven states where it operates. Elliman reported a net...

    In New York City’s well-heeled 12th Congressional District, a housing activist named Pete Harrison is running in the Democratic primary to unseat incumbent Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney. But that’s not the only campaign he’s waging. Harrison is currently engaged in a “rent strike” against his landlords, Blackstone Real Estate. This is a rather curious position to take, as we’ll get to momentarily, but he seems adamant about seeing that nobody has to pay their rent during the pandemic shutdown. He was recently offered the chance to pen an op-ed on the subject in the New York Daily News. Let’s take...

    Many New Yorkers are ushering in a grim Mothers Day this year amid accusations that Governor Andrew “Cuomo killed my mom” thanks to his deadly policy that forced nursing homes to admit coronavirus patients. The bone-headed move resulted in the deaths of thousands of senior citizens living in nursing homes. Cuomo mandated that nursing homes must accept coronavirus patients even though older people are the most at-risk to die from COVID-19. Making matters worse was the fact that nursing homes did not have personal protective equipment or COVID testing capability.
  • Cuomo's Fake 'How Much Is a Human Life Worth?' Rhetoric

    There's sanctimonious, self-serving preening that offends the sensibilities of average American citizens and then there's the latest obnoxious hectoring from New York's Governor Andrew Cuomo. At his daily coronavirus briefing Tuesday, Cuomo addressed increasing pressure to resume some level of commerce and normalcy in America. "How much is a human life worth?" Cuomo asked the fawning press and the ever-present television lens. "That's the real discussion that no one is admitting openly or freely. But we should." The question is a false and manipulative piece of political rhetoric meant to appeal to emotions and feelings, not rational thought. But, such...

    New York state is reporting more than 1,700 previously undisclosed deaths at nursing homes and adult care facilities as the state faces scrutiny over how it's protected vulnerable residents during the coronavirus pandemic. At least 4,813 people have died from COVID-19 in the state's nursing homes since March 1, according to a tally released by Governor Andrew Cuomo's administration late Monday that, for the first time, includes people believed to have been killed by the coronavirus before their diagnoses could be confirmed by a lab test. Exactly how many nursing home residents have died remains uncertain despite the state's latest...
