De Blasio’s Own Traffic Rules

February 21, 2014

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio revealed a 62-point plan which he believes will lead to safer traffic patterns and streets.  A big city progressive who wants tons of new rules and regulations?  No news there. However, it’s nonetheless bad form to have one’s own caravan caught two days later by CBS2 cameras blowing through [...]

August 3, 2013

New Rochelle, New York, is facing a lawsuit by a veterans group over that city’s ordering down of the 1775 Gadsden Flag from the city’s armory, saying that flying the flag is making a “political statement.” Of course it does — with such broad reasoning, so could the American, New York, or New Rochelle flag!

Watch Out NYC. Bloomberg is Still Offended by Your Eating Habits

June 13, 2012

Mayor Bloomberg has a knack for sticking his nose into other people’s business, something that would be annoying enough he happened to be that neighbor no one likes.  Unfortunately, he is a powerful Mayor whose diktats always seem to be implemented. By now, we’ve all heard about his plan to ban the sale of certain [...]

DC Comics’ Northstar is going to marry his long-time boyfriend in New York City in the June 20th release of “Astonishing X-Men.”  Northstar’s alter-ego happens to be Canadian, if that means anything.

Rats! Hawks Dropping Like Flies.

April 12, 2012

New York City is the greatest city in the world, but even the biggest Gothamphile would admit that the place can have a bit of a rat problem.  It isn’t a big deal when they’re down on the subway tracks or in Queens, but when the critters start infesting parks and playgrounds, even those with [...]

Senator Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) used “occupy” rhetoric on Thursday to express her will that entitlements be taken off the table during the ill-fated Super Committee negotiations to deal with the deficit.  Tina Korbe, writing for Hot Air, did an excellent job exposing the many obvious problems with Mikulski’s argument.

Times Square Can’t Shine as Bright as You

April 14, 2011

We all have different ideas of what it means to be romantic.  today, we found out what it means to Bill Clinton:  Pre-Giuliani- Times Square hookers.  I know what you’re thinking, but cut the man some slack.  He could have said “Tompkins Square Park.”  Seriously though, think of the man’s situation and ask yourself, does [...]

NYC Snow Removal Disaster

December 29, 2010

If you live in the Northeast (or traveling through one of our airports), you know how inconveniencing blizzards around the holidays can be.  New Jersey got nailed pretty bad (18-22″ or so), but so did New York.  Like nearly all major winter storms, this nasty storm was forecast days in advance to hit Sunday afternoon.  [...]

Yesterday, New York City’s Times Square was closed down for 10 hours while police and investigators dismantled a bomb which failed to detonate within a Nissan Pathfinder, which was parked on the street.  Damn SUVs!  Aside from veering off the road at will, aiming at granny, and pushing children through the windshield for fun, could [...]

September 28, 2008

They’re open-minded. They’re peaceful. They’re intellectual. They’re tolerant. At least that’s what liberals tell us all the time. Kudos to those McCain supporters who recently put liberals’ self-proclaimed virtues to the test by merely walking through the streets of Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Here are the results. Charming.
