    A man yelling “I want to kill cops” tried to run down two Port Authority Police officers with his car near the entrance to the ­Holland Tunnel Wednesday night in the latest attack on officers. Matthew Christian Cash, who has an extensive criminal record, was barreling down a restricted fire lane near Varick and Watts streets when he barely missed cops patrolling the tunnel and smashed his silver Audi right into their ­police cruiser at about 8 p.m., authorities said.

    The lawyer who led an investigation that determined Gov. Chris Christie was not involved in the bridge closure scandal told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly Thursday there is not a “shred of evidence” Christie knew anything. Randy Mastro, a former federal prosecutor, released a report on his team’s investigation Thursday. The report relied on interviews with officials in the Christie administration, including the governor, and 250,000 documents. Mastro said on “The Kelly File” his investigation was exhaustive and thorough, and in the end completely exonerated Christie. “There is not a shred of evidence that Governor Christie knew anything about this lane...

    One World Trade Center is getting its mouth washed out with soap. A day after the Daily News exposed the racist and sexist graffiti inside a building that’s supposed to symbolize national unity, workers were ordered to clean the mess and paint over the filth. Meanwhile, Port Authority police launched an investigation—and dispatched officers with cameras to the men’s rooms Monday to take pictures of the heinous scrawls. They’ll hit the ladies’ rooms in the still-under-construction building on Tuesday. …

    The transportation agency has mortgaged itself to the hilt to rebuild the World Trade Center, leaving few resources for its real mission. New Yorkers have watched One World Trade Center gradually define the downtown skyline. The massive glass-and-steel building should reach its full height and be ready for tenants within 18 months. But to those tenants, One World Trade may come to symbolize not victory over terror but rather their own miserable commutes. Most of the white-collar workers who will stream into the tower depend on subways, buses, tunnels, and bridges to get to Manhattan. And over the past decade,...

    The latest round of painful negotiations between the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which owns the World Trade Center site, and Larry Silverstein, who owns the right to re-develop it, has finally yielded some important progress: the heretofore unaccountable Port Authority must meet firm deadlines in doing its part to allow Silverstein to develop commercially viable office space at Ground Zero. Thursday’s agreement between the Port Authority and Silverstein mostly just firms up some details of an April deal. Under that earlier agreement, Silverstein retained the right and responsibility to build three office towers at Ground Zero,...

    May 18, 2006 -- Here is a sneak peek at Oliver Stone's new movie "World Trade Center" - the first big-budget Hollywood film depicting the New York 9/11 attacks - and its harrowing, real-life portrayal of the last two Port Authority cops pulled from the rubble. The movie - the opening 26 minutes of which were screened for police officers last night - focuses on the horror and ensuing bravery of that day. "It's very emotional to watch, but I think most New Yorkers are ready to see it," said retired NYPD cop Scott Strauss, who worked as a consultant...
