Tower of Babel: City and state should sync up virus data

Tower of Babel: City and state should sync up virus data

Public school parents were exasperated when Mayor de Blasio revealed last week the seven-day-average citywide COVID-19 positivity rate had reached 3.00%, the exact threshold UFT leaders and City Hall agreed would trigger automatic shutdown of all in-person schooling, in every borough. Trying to reason with Hizzoner was futile: A deal was a deal, that was that, schools were closed. Advertisement The rotten cherry on the whole stressful sundae was the fact that de Blasio’s announcement came right after Gov. Cuomo declared that, by the state’s calculations, the city’s seven-day-average virus...

The help New York needs now

The help New York needs now

Joe Biden’s election as president has renewed focus on the desperate need for economic relief and recovery policies. For New York, it comes not a minute too soon. Our city and state were in crisis long before COVID-19 laid the fact bare and magnified it, and we will need bold action at every level of government to get beyond the ill state of affairs that existed before the virus struck. The stage has been set for it. Like the Great Depression and World War II, COVID has taught a generation that our economic and physical security depends on collective action. Advertisement Consider the...

‘By the grace of God that she sustained only minor injuries’: Deranged man shoves woman into path of oncoming NYC subway

In two terrifying seconds, a Manhattan subway rider’s worst nightmare became a mass transit miracle. A deranged homeless man with a running start shoved an unsuspecting woman in front of an oncoming subway train Thursday in the Union Square station, with the helpless victim improbably landing in the roadbed between the tracks and emerging intact after two of the 70,000-pound cars passed over her.

Sound and fury: Rudy Giuliani shouts lies at the sky while President Trump keeps threatening to meddle with Joe Biden’s victory

Just as Dick Nixon had his 1952 Checkers speech and his famous last press conference 10 years later, Rudy Giuliani, erstwhile hero of New York’s recovery from the Sept. 11 terror attacks, could well be remembered for his disgraceful Four Seasons Total Landscaping warehouse press conference and his Grecian Formula meltdown in a hot room at Republican National Committee headquarters shilling for loser Donald Trump. Oh, Rudy, we won’t forget how you masterfully broke crooked Rep. Bert Podell on the stand in 1974 and in 1986 up in New Haven finally brought down wily Stanley Friedman, Roy Cohn’s...

Another day, another dark chapter in the life of Rudy Giuliani.

President-elect Joe Biden said Wednesday that President Trump’s refusal to accept defeat could delay distribution of coronavirus vaccines by “weeks or months.” As Trump digs in his heels, Biden said his incoming team is hamstrung by the administration’s refusal to coordinate with those who will be in charge of fighting the pandemic and planning to roll out millions of doses of vaccines.

NYC high school admissions rules violate Civil Rights Act: federal complaint

NYC high school admissions rules violate Civil Rights Act: federal complaint

New York City’s system of “screening” applicants to elite public high schools based on their grades, test scores, attendance records and other criteria violates federal law by disproportionately keeping Black and Latino students out of the coveted schools, a new federal alleges. Student advocacy group Teens Take Charge argues in a complaint set to be filed Monday to the U.S. Education Department that the lower admissions rates for Black and Latino students to the selective high schools show the selection rules have a discriminatory effect — even if the rules appear neutral on the surface....

COVID is not an excuse for FOIL foot-dragging: Government remains obligated to release information to the public and press

Anyone who has ever made a request for information under New York’s Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) knows the frustrations of having agencies delay responding timely to the request. Even in the best of times, city and state agencies typically take their time responding to a request for information. But the law requires expeditiousness. Agencies must make some response within five days of receiving a request. At that point, they can either make the record available or give a date when it will be produced, ideally within 20 days, according to the regulation. Advertisement I run a law firm...

Trump’s last days in office could be his most dangerous

Even when a president loses in an electoral landside, he remains president for another 80 days. What limits are there on a lame duck’s power? Explicitly, none. The old refrain binds: We have one president at a time. But in moments of crisis, constitutional guidance and other norms support courts and decision-makers halting a lame-duck president’s most radical actions. With President Trump looking increasingly strident and irrational as he refuses to acknowledge Joe Biden’s victory, all Americans should be aware of these constraints.
