    A Pakistani man was sentenced to 40 years in prison Tuesday for his role in a failed al Qaeda bomb plot targeting sites in Europe and the United states, including the New York City subway system. Abid Naseer, 29, is the eighth defendant to be charged in this case, CBS News' Paula Reid reports. Prosecutors say the planned attack was directed and coordinated with senior Al Qaeda leaders in Pakistan and also involved other targets in Europe. "I know you're not what I'd say, for any lack of a better word, a 'typical' criminal. Not in any sense of the...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- A set of controversial subway ads featuring what appear to be Nazi symbols has been removed, following a livid response ... The ads for "The Man in the High Castle," which are running on the 42nd Street Shuttle or S Train, feature what look like Japanese Rising Sun flags and Nazi imperial eagles.

    Congressional Democrats are trying to build support for an effort to bar gun purchases by terror suspects, hoping to take advantage of the same public anxieties about security that gave Republicans a ringing House victory. The Democratic push seems likely to fall victim to opposition from the National Rifle Association and congressional gun-rights backers, chiefly Republicans, who have smothered firearms curbs for years. If the Republicans who control Congress block votes on the proposal, Democrats hope to profit politically by winning sympathy from angry voters. ...

    NEW YORK (WABC) - It's one of the hottest toys out there, and you can expect "hoverboards" to be filling Santa's sleigh this Christmas. But there is concern over the legality of the self-balancing scooters in New York City. And it turns out that when you're riding one of these "hoverboards," you need to be on the lookout of course for traffic and bumps in the road, but also for police. People walking the city streets have probably bumped into or passed by someone trying to maneuver themselves on the handlebar-less motorized devices, and the Department of Transportation is cracking...

    LINDEN, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — The FBI and local police are investigating after a drone fell out of the sky and crashed into a truck in New Jersey on Wednesday morning. As CBS2’s Christine Sloan reported, of particular concern to authorities is that the incident happened on a road just outside a Phillips 66 refinery in Linden. The driver of the truck apparently got out and had words with the operator of the drone, who took off, investigators said. John Victor Jacobson, head of New Jersey-based Drone Service Systems, said he cannot think of a good reason to fly one of...

But it was also a complaint: A new restaurant called BEC short for Bacon Egg and Cheese was about to open in Manhattan, and he was less than pleased. Breakfast sandwiches, Wells explained, are nothing if not practical, prepared quickly and eaten on the go, stuffed with modest ingredients and sold at a reasonable price....

The proclamations also said she was wrongfully executed for helping her husband, Julius, pass atomic secrets to the Soviet Union. A lot of hysteria was created around anti-communism and...

    Complaints have been made over the influx of topless women prancing around Times Square and charging tourists to be in photos, deeming it inappropriate and offensive. The women, who cover their bodies in paint and and typically wear nothing but a thong, are not in trouble for being topless - which is legal in New York City - but for posing with underage children. The number of women at the tourist mecca have doubled in the last year, with about 40 walking around Times Square on the weekends, according to The New York Daily News.

Calling the operation truly bizarre, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said Friday that brothers Chas Sestoso, 31, and Brandon Sestoso, 33, along with accomplice Jesse Kusinow, 32, busted into the Jamaica Estates home of Anita Chan and her husband on April 29. Chan returned to her Grand Central Parkway home later that day and found the locks switched and the threatening trio lurking inside, Brown said.

    Bill DeBlasio is doing America a real favor. He is showing us all that under socialism what a wonderful world it would be. DeBlasio reached puberty under the watchful eyes of the Nicaraguan Sandanistas. He also honeymooned in Cuba. The guy is a dyed in the wool socialist. He's brought socialism to the city of New York and it's been something to witness. New Yorkers are not happy with the quality of their living experience at the moment: New Yorkers believe quality of life in the Big Apple is rotting at the core, a new poll revealed Thursday.

    Times Square is usually buzzing with activity, but Tuesday, a different kind of buzz drew a lot of attention. A swarm of bees decided to visit, and take over a parked bicycle near 7th Avenue and 56th Street. The NYPD called in their beekeeper, who then rounded up the flying insects by vacuuming them. Officials say there are no reports of anyone being stung in the area. They believe the bees migrated because their hive was too full
