    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — As New York City reopens, tourism is slowly returning, but so are unlicensed street vendors. Some people in Chinatown and SoHo say the so-called fake bag bonanza is taking over their neighborhoods in a way they’ve never seen before.

    New York : The controversial clock was added at the end Photo: Andrés Correa Guatarasma / Courtesy From the January 1 New York has one of the few great reasons to celebrate amid the pandemic that has caused death, population exodus and many business closures: the reopening of a Penn Station that for years was condemned to neglect. But also there was at least one tragedy en route to that remodel: in the final stage, when the pandemic was just beginning, on March 17 executive Michael Joseph Evans Palacio hanged himself, apparently a victim of exhaustion and insomnia due to the pressures of the great work schedule. Evans was born in Cali (Colombia), but his family moved to Dallas (Texas) when he was just a baby. At the time of his death he had just turned 40 and was already president of the public-private consortium Moynihan Station Development Corp. He had spent most of his career converting the “James A. Farley” post office into the gleaming, bright, newly opened train station at a cost of...
    NEW YORK (WABC) -- Governor Andrew Cuomo outlined an ambitious vision for public sector redevelopment - including major renovations of Penn Station and the Port Authority Bus Terminal - during day four of his State of the State address.Citing New York's long history of spearheading major public works projects, Cuomo announced an ambitious $306 billion infrastructure improvement program, which he called the largest ever undertaken by any state in the nation."Building new projects, enhancing public life, lifts people's spirits," Cuomo said, adding that only the public sector can build the common foundation for a region's economic growth.At the center of the planned project is a new Midtown West transit hub, to be created on 140 acres in Manhattan.The transit-oriented development will continue to rebuild and reimagine Penn Station following the January 1st opening of the Moynihan Train Hall.Leveraging federal funds, Cuomo said, the state will acquire an additional block south of Penn Station, allowing the addition of eight more tracks to the station's existing 21 tracks.The so-called Empire Station Project also calls for the addition of two new tunnels under...
    After decades of planning, Penn Station's Moynihan Train Hall is open to the public in New York City. Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who oversaw the project's completion, cut a ribbon revealing the 255,000-square-foot hub to the public in a ceremony on New Year's Day. Penn Station and Moynihan Train Hall, which will service Amtrak and LIRR as well as some limited New Jersey Transit lines, will operate as a single complex. According to Amtrak's website, "Amtrak customers will be directed to use Moynihan Train Hall as Amtrak’s 'front door' for boarding trains although access to and from Amtrak trains will always be maintained through New York Penn station." The $1.6 billion project was nearly 30 years in the making. The idea of converting the century-old James A. Farley Post Office into a transit hub was originally conceived by Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan, whose name the station bears. The new train hall boasts several modern features including an open, spacious concourse and a 92-foot-high skylight. "Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan was a man of true vision. He saw the potential in an underutilized...

    By DAVID PORTER, Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo and transit officials cut the ribbon Wednesday on a gleaming new train hub that will give travelers an alternative to cramped, dingy Penn Station across the street. The Moynihan Train Hall takes up 255,000 square feet (23,690 square meters) of what formerly served as a mail sorting and loading area in the James A. Farley Post Office building, once New York’s main postal center from the early 20th century. Amtrak and the Long Island Rail Road will use the new hall, which connects to Penn Station under Eighth Avenue to the east and provides access from Ninth Avenue to the west and to the Eighth Avenue subway. It’s named after late New York Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan, a public transit advocate who pushed for the project in the 1990s. In contrast to Penn Station's subterranean network of claustrophobic, windowless hallways and concourses, the new train hall is spacious and illuminated by a 92-foot-high skylight featuring more than an acre of glass. At Wednesday’s ribbon-cutting, Cuomo called the $1.6...
    (Reuters) - A new $1.6 billion train hall at New York City's Penn Station will be unveiled to the public on Wednesday, significantly expanding North America's busiest train terminal amid a public transit crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The construction of a new concourse in the iconic Farley Post Office building across Eighth Avenue from Penn Station had been talked about for decades before being set on a concrete path by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo in 2016. The 255,000 square-foot Moynihan Train hall, named for the late U.S. Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, who championed the project, will serve passengers on Amtrak and the Long Island Rail Road when it opens for business on Jan. 1, 2021. Featuring a 92-foot high glass skylight and a lounge for nursing mothers, the new facility is designed to provide more space for the notoriously congested transit hub, which served some 650,000 people daily before the pandemic. In a statement on Sunday, Cuomo hailed the project as a "shot of hope" amid the dark days of the pandemic and said its completion was...

Donald Trump was a relatively small player in the New York real estate world in 1975, but the Commodore Hotel promised to put him in the big leagues. The area around the famous old hotel next to Grand Central Station was decrepit, but Trump saw a rare (and cheap) opportunity to remake the famous property and bring new business to Manhattan’s then-seedy Midtown. The mayor at the time was Abe Beame, a Brooklyn politician who was close to Trump’s father, Fred. In talking to one of the men responsible for selling the Commodore, Beame described his relationship to the Trumps in simple terms. “Whatever my friends Fred and Donald want in this town, they get,” the mayor said, according to journalist Michael D’Antonio’s recent Trump biography, Never Enough. What Trump wanted...
    By Gabriella Borter NEW YORK (Reuters) - A few dozen travelers got off a train from Miami at New York City's Penn Station on Thursday and were greeted by a team of public health workers and mayoral office staff who handed them informational fliers about the state's new COVID-19 quarantine rules. The team, comprised of Mayor Bill de Blasio's public engagement unit and the city's COVID-19 Test & Trace Corps, were running a "checkpoint" starting at Penn Station on Thursday to ensure that visitors from any of the 35 states on New York's travel advisory were aware of the 14-day quarantine mandate. Their measure aims to keep the infection rate low in the city, formerly the epicenter of the nation's epidemic in the spring with thousands of new cases per day. Matthew Joseph, 46, getting off the train from Miami, said he had not been aware of the quarantine order when he boarded. "I'm not as much of a believer on a lot of this stuff, but I follow whatever's necessary to accommodate everyone else," he said. Checkpoint staff handed...

    New York Giants: Saquon Barkley Receives BTN All-Decade Honors By: Cay North June 30, 2020 Follow ESM On Social Facebook Twitter Youtube Flipboard Instagram ShareTweet0 SharesThere’s not many running backs in the NFL more prolific right now than New York Giants star Saquon Barkley, and this season, Barkley might break through and establish himself as the top running back in the league as a whole. However, Barkley’s history of dominance stretches back to before his NFL career. The Giants drafted him at number two overall because of his accomplishments as one of the top backs in the country at Penn State. More recently, Barkley was recognized by the Big Ten Network for his play in college which saw him lead Penn State in their revival as one of the top programs in the country. Barkley played at the same time as multiple other influential running backs in the conference, Ezekiel Elliot included, but at the end of the day it was Barkley that was selected by BTN for their All-Decade Team. ...
