    CLEVELAND (CBSNewYork/AP) — Shortly after showering, and maybe rinsing off a forgettable performance, LeBron James smiled and laughed as he dressed for a flight to Chicago. “It was one game,” he said. James moved on quickly. It may take Cleveland a little longer. This championship-deprived city, which had waited months to celebrate James’ return from Miami with a rip-roaring party, was in a state of shock following Cleveland’s 95-90 loss to the New York Knicks on Thursday night. “We got our party spoiled last night,” said Carmelo Anthony, whose Knicks were…

The Wall Street Journal article reporting this news makes no mention of the self-contained underground bunker Cruise was alleged to be building under the home, to protect his family from "alien attacks," so unless that is what the Journal means by "recreation room," it's probably safe to say he…

    Photos via Designboom On a mission to transform old architecture through digital art, French artist Miguel Chevalier recently turned a 13th-century Italian castle into a trippy pixel paradise. In his latest project for a series called "Magic Carpets", Chevalier uses the surface of the castle's octagonal courtyard as the canvas for projecting a kaleidoscopic neon light display, just as he had done once before with a rectangular space in a 1930 Moroccan church. The patterns here, of course, aren't random: the pixelated compositions pay homage to the mosaics that once decorated the castle's…

They require financing but have not been in contact with a lender.I recently spoke with a buyer that was interested in one of my listings.

  • Confirmed: Sprawl and Bad Transit Increase Unemployment

    Angie Schmitt
    30 Oct 2014 | 1:56 pm
    Since the 1960s and the earliest days of job sprawl, the theory of “spatial mismatch” — that low-income communities experience higher unemployment because they are isolated from employment centers – has shaped the way people think about urban form and social equity. Photo: Phrawr on Flickr But it’s also been challenged. The research that supporting spatial mismatch has suffered from some nagging flaws. For example, many studies focused on job access within a single metropolitan area, so it wasn’t clear if the findings were universal. Other studies looked…

  • As Citi Bike Expands, So Should NYC’s Protected Bike Lanes

    Stephen Miller

    When Citi Bike launched last year, ridership numbers quickly surpassed levels seen in other cities. New York’s system had a number of advantages — more stations, more bikes, more places to go, and more potential customers, for starters. But there’s another reason so many people felt comfortable hopping on the blue bikes: For years before bike-share’s launch, the city had been installing miles of protected bike lanes on several key north-south avenues in the Citi Bike service area. At Tuesday’s Citi Bike announcement, DOT chief Polly Trottenberg said the presence…

  • Taxi Drivers Demand Signs Reminding Passengers Not to Try to Kill Them

    RadioFreeTaxi
    25 Oct 2014 | 5:57 pm
    New York taxi drivers are mad as hell, and they’re not going to take it anymore. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, cab drivers and chauffeurs accounted for 53 of the 4,405 Americans killed on the job in 2013. Their workplace fatality rate is 130 percent higher than the national average. And in New York, eight cabbies were assaulted in 2014, according to data from the New York Taxi Workers Alliance. That’s why drivers rallied in front of City Hall on Tuesday afternoon, urging the City Council to pass a bill that would require that signs be posted in all…
  • NYC may start giving out letter grades to taxi drivers

    RadioFreeTaxi
    12 Oct 2014 | 12:58 pm
    Here’s a tip for cabbies — start shaping up because the city is considering handing out grades. A bill being drafted by City Councilman Carlos Menchaca would for the first time keep scores on all drivers licensed by the Taxi and Limousine Commission. Menchaca (D-Brooklyn) told The Post he’s still finalizing the details, which is why he declined to offer specifics on how drivers would be measured. But it wasn’t difficult to come up with criteria, since the TLC maintains loads of data on rule violations, traffic summonses, vehicle safety checks and even passenger commendations. The…
  • Taxi Windshields Will Get These Stickers Reminding Hacks Not To Run Over Pedestrians

    21 Sep 2014 | 1:49 pm
    The Taxi & Limousine Commission has voted on a proposal that would require taxis drivers to post stickers in their vehicles reminding them to watch for pedestrians while making turns. The proposal was part of a package of bills presented at a TLC meeting today, all of which aim to support Mayor de Blasio’s Vision Zero initiative to eliminate transit fatalities. These safety stickers, placed behind a cab’s rearview mirror, will be mandatory in all vehicles: Drivers also have the option of posting an additional warning sticker on their rear bumpers, reminding other drivers that…
  • Woman killed by taxi despite bystanders who lifted cab off

    29 Aug 2014 | 6:16 pm
    A woman was fatally run over by a taxi on the Upper East Side — despite the heroic efforts of good Samaritans who hoisted the cab off of her, cops and witnesses said. The 58-year-old pedestrian was crossing East 79th Street at Madison Avenue just before 2 p.m., Friday, when she was leveled by a yellow cab SUV turning onto East 79th, authorities said. Nearly two dozen bystanders flipped the cab onto its side, and the woman was rushed to Lenox Hill Hospital, but she was pronounced dead on arrival, according to police. Cops did not immediately release the woman’s identity. It was not…

  • Postcard Thursday: The Lenox Library

    Michelle and James Nevius
    30 Oct 2014 | 9:30 am
    Today's postcard, sent August 30, 1906, shows the Lenox Library, which stood at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 70th Street. Designed by Richard Morris Hunt, the library opened in 1875 and housed the rare book collection of philanthropist James Lenox. However, due to the library's curtailed hours (Tuesdays and Thursdays only, with advance permission from the librarian), the building was more of an architectural monument than anything else. Life magazine spoofed the library in 1884 (below), showing cannons on the rooftop and New Yorkers who'd dared attempt access strung up like criminals.The…

    23 Oct 2014 | 8:57 am
    We just acquired this postcard recently, showing Morgan's Bank and the New York Stock Exchange. The exchange (on the right) was new in 1904 when this card was sent, having opened on April 22, 1903. It is unclear when the image was actually produced, but notice that pediment of the NYSE is blank. While's there's a chance that this is because the image predates sculptor JQA Ward finishing his monumental work that adorns the pediment, "Integrity Protecting the Works of Man" (below), it is more likely that the pediment was erased when making the postcard to make the image easier to read.On the…

As we write in Inside the Apple:On February 2, 1653, New Amsterdam officially became the first legally chartered city in America.

    One of the most storied buildings in Lower Manhattan is Fraunces Tavern at the corner of Pearl Street and Broad Street. (And storied is the right word, since much of the building's history seems to be made up.) Known as the place where George Washington bade farewell to his officers, it had originally been the home of Stephen Delancey, a prosperous merchant in the English Colonial period.In 1700, Stephen married Anne Van Cortlandt, the daughter of the city's former mayor, who had purchased the lot some years earlier and gave it to Stephen and Anne as a wedding present.

While many folks I know appreciate the value of Ikea's .99-cent breakfasts and kids-eat-free Tuesdays, there are more eclectic options to fit all budgets.

    Halloween inevitably ends with way too much candy, which is why we're big fans of donating or repurposing excess treats. But you know what else we have too much of on the holiday? Decorative pumpkins and gourds. Often they sit and rot on windowsills and stoops until they cave in, at which point parents can finally convince their kids to chuck 'em in the trash. But there's a more fun and environmentally friendly way to get rid of your jack-o'-lanterns: Recycle them at Pumpkin Smash, a series of FREE composting events being held throughout the five boroughs this Saturday, November 1.
