    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Thousands of people are marching down the streets of Manhattan for the 95th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Last year’s parade was scaled back significantly because of the pandemic, but now it returns in a big way.

On Wednesday, the crowd grew and grew on the Upper West Side, as people got a sneak peek of the giant balloons. “I think it’s amazing,” Manhattan resident Gianna Martinez said. “All of my friends said they’re not coming, so it’s going to be a pretty hard brag.

    Perhaps it’s nostalgia for life before the internet, but I love perusing public message boards. I’m old enough to remember when you discovered useful information by glancing at lampposts, and somehow the city seemed more alive. I knew I was in the right place when I spotted a flyer that caught my eye in the doorway of a coffee shop, on a library wall or tacked to a telephone pole. Photo by Bill LindekeThat’s why I’ve been photographing these message boards for almost twenty years, beginning with a piece of fence in Minneapolis’ Kingfield neighborhood. It was just a small bit of fencing between two neighborhood shops, but in 2005, it was a perfect spot for want ads, campaign flyers, lawn lawn mowing services, community meetings, roommates wanted — that kind of thing. Today on certain corners, old-school message boards are still somehow thriving. If you glimpse one, it’s a sign you’re at an urban hotspot, part of a city alive with the footsteps of strangers. Until a few years ago, the message board on the corner of Como and Carter...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — Her calls for help were ignored. Another victim of the Chicago Park District scandal involving young lifeguards comes forward after two scathing reports led to disciplinary action against dozens of employees and the resignation of the Park District Superintendent last month.

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — With the clock ticking down on Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration, he is once again trying to get rid of carriage horses in Central Park. This time, de Blasio is developing eleventh hour legislation to replace the popular tourist attraction with electric show cars, CBS2’s Marcia Kramer reported Friday.

The distinctive clip-clop of horse-drawn carriages in Central Park – a loud and vibrant reminder that after nearly eight years in office, de Blasio has failed to make good on one of the central promises that helped him win the job of mayor. He told the animal rights activists, who donated heavily to his campaign, he would retire the horses and...
    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Homeless cleanup only in rich neighborhoods? That’s what one Sacramento property owner says is happening and now he’s suing the city. Every street in one north Sacramento neighborhood was lined with trash. People were camping directly on park property. Daniel Alweiss, the owner of vacant land off of Eleanor Avenue, says he wants to fight for his neighborhood that is now afraid to speak up.

    LIVERMORE — A South Livermore office park that has sat vacant for nearly a decade is expected to see new life early next year following a renovation and the city allowing a broader mix of businesses there. After two redevelopment plans were rejected over the past several years at the site, formerly known as the Sunset Office Plaza, six of the 10 buildings have been renovated and rebranded as The Well at Sunset. Meanwhile, the city approved plans to demolish the other four buildings on the northern portion of the site and put up a 128-unit senior living facility. Construction could begin in late 2022, according to city reports and one of the developers. The former office park, owned for decades by the Mehran family’s San Ramon Sunset Development Company, has been vacant since about 2013. That company’s varied plans for homes, an office building and townhouses on the site were rejected by the city in 2014 and 2015, in large part because of pushback from some residents. The property, at Holmes Street and Concannon Boulevard with 10 buildings on...

    You've seen the pictures: The Eiffel Tower with sky ablaze in brilliant color. The Taj Mahal with no tourists. Lakes with perfectly mirrored mountain reflections.  Unfortunately, the photos often have been doctored. Many places can't live up to the expectations set by photography that has been filled, brushed, blurred, and balanced to a flawless finish. It can leave travelers feeling disappointed when they see famous sites in real life. But the splendor of some places can't be fully captured in a photo — edited or not.

    An Orange County Superior Court jury on Monday acquitted a 75-year-old homeless woman on four misdemeanor counts of remaining in Fountain Valley’s Mile Square Park after closing hours. The trial verdict caps a battle between Nancy Wood, who demanded that she be allowed to sleep in her tent in the park, and Fountain Valley officials determined to keep her out. “We accept the jury’s verdict if they thought the evidence they heard supports it. We respect it,” said Alexandra Halfman, an attorney for the city. Fountain Valley officials were not seeking criminal penalties against Wood. Rather, they wanted a “stay away” order to keep her out of the park, Halfman said. Halfman said it isn’t clear how Fountain Valley officials will continue to enforce the city’s no-loitering ordinance at Mile Square Park and Wood’s continued encampment there. The verdict, she said, could give pause to cities, counties and other agencies throughout California trying to enforce similar laws at parks. “People will have to get together to find a solution” for the park issue as well as homelessness generally, Halfman said....

    After nearly 10 years, Terrapin Crossroads, the San Rafael music venue and restaurant owned by former Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh, has closed. Phil and Jill Lesh broke the news via Facebook on Friday after speculation that the famed venue might close. The business had a lease agreement with the property owner. A separate lease with the city for Beach Park, a 3/4-acre site along the waterfront, was also in limbo. The lease required Terrapin to pay the city $15,000 a year in rent for the park, offset by any permanent improvements the owner made. Terrapin made more than $200,000 of improvements to the park, providing much-needed restrooms and parking. “We explored all possible options in an attempt to keep Terrapin at its current location, but after carefully considering a number of various partnerships and collaborations, we decided that the best thing for us, and for Terrapin, was to bid farewell — for now,” the post reads. “In that spirit, while Terrapin’s time at its current location may be coming to a close, we know that Terrapin Crossroads was never...
    A federal grand jury has issued subpoenas seeking information about cash and other payments to public officials and cannabis consultants as part of a criminal investigation into pot licensing in Baldwin Park and nearby cities, The Times has learned. Federal authorities, including agents from the FBI and Internal Revenue Service, have been interviewing witnesses and are seeking a wide range of records regarding Baldwin Park city officials who approved cannabis licenses and consultants who helped businesses obtain the permits, according to interviews and a copy of a grand jury subpoena reviewed by The Times. Agents are also probing connections between Baldwin Park businesses and consultants who have obtained or sought cannabis licenses in other cities, including Montebello and El Monte, according to the subpoena and interviews. The subpoenas follow a series of scandals in Baldwin Park, a 6.8-square-mile city 23 miles east of Los Angeles, in the heart of the San Gabriel Valley. Late last year, The Times reported that FBI agents had served search warrants at the city attorney’s office and the homes of two officials in...

    Home for 75-year-old Nancy Wood has been a tent — sometimes two — in Fountain Valley’s Mile Square Park. But the city wants her gone. Police officers have tried for months to persuade her to leave. Even the sidewalk would be a better alternative, police told her. But she stood fast, saying she had a right to sleep in the park. Her insistence has led Wood to the defendant’s table at Orange County Superior Court in Westminster. After dozens of contacts, officers began arresting Wood, tearing down her encampment and finally charging her with seven misdemeanor counts of being in the park after closing hours — each count punishable by a maximum of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine. During Wood’s criminal trial Wednesday, three counts were dismissed by Orange County Superior Court Judge Kathleen Roberts because of a lack of evidence. A fourth count also may be dismissed Thursday, when the jury trial continues. Alexandra Halfman, a lawyer with the City Attorney’s Office, said Fountain Valley will not seek jail time or a fine if Wood is...

                      by Kyle Hooten  A Minnesota city is hiring for a position that pays up to $125 an hour and requires that applicants subscribe to various left-wing racial theories. “The Brooklyn Park Economic Development Authority (EDA) and North Hennepin Community College (NHCC) are seeking a Project Manager to coordinate collaborative work and fundraising for the Center for Innovation and the Arts,” reads the job posting. The applicant selected for this role will be charged with “support[ing] the development of more arts programming in the community” and increasing donations to the city’s planned arts center. Apparently these tasks require a firm faith in progressive ideas about race. One of the “desired qualifications” is a belief in systemic racism. The preferred candidate “acknowledges the history in our country of the oppression of black and indigenous peoples, and the power, privilege, and access disparities along the lines of social identities.” There is other coded language that alludes to more leftist concepts. For example, job applicants are required to understand the “anti-racist framework.” On its face...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — New York City spent millions of dollars last year building a skate park in Brownsville, Brooklyn, but many kids in the neighborhood didn’t know how to use it, until now.

    Not giving the devil his due. The Star Tribune’s Erin Adler reports: “A Satanic Temple has lost its court battle with the city of Belle Plaine, four years after the religious group attempted to put a monument in the local Veterans Memorial Park. … The temple asserted in two separate lawsuits that the southwest metro city had violated its rights to free speech and free expression of religion, among other things. But a federal judge dismissed most of those allegations in 2020 and decided in September that the city didn’t breach a contract when it revoked the temple’s permit to install the monument. … Belle Plaine is pleased with the court’s decision, said Dawn Meyer, the city administrator” Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan on the new social studies standards. For Sahan Journal Becky Z.

    IRVING PARK — When gun violence increased in some North and Northwest side neighborhoods last year, officials and residents pushed for a two-fold solution: more police in the short term and community-based interventions to keep everyone safer in the long term. Almost a year later, some Irving Park residents got their first look at the longer-term plan this week, meeting violence interrupters who have worked the area for months, trying to quell gang-related conflicts and support at-risk locals. On Tuesday, violence interrupters from the Alliance of Local Service Organizations joined a block party hosted by Irving Park East Neighborhood Association, sharing pizza and s’mores while the outreach team introduced themselves and talked to neighbors about their concerns. “I’m a firm believer of not just showing up when an incident like a shooting happens,” said Samuel Santana, who oversees outreach teams in Belmont Cragin, Avondale and Albany Park. “It doesn’t have to be a violent problem for us to help; it could be anything. And we’re not just here to fix a problem and leave — we’re part of this...
    Los Angeles is shutting down another public park for so-called "rehabilitation" efforts, signaling a growing problem seen in major metropolitan areas across the country.  As homeless encampments have littered public spaces with drug paraphernalia and human waste, public safety concerns have forced out extracurricular activities once enjoyed by residents seeking green refuge in inner cities.  It’s unclear whether the latest plight to clean up Los Angeles’ MacArthur Park will be met with similar controversies seen across the city in months’ past. Hundreds of protesters blocked city crews trying to clear a homeless encampment in Echo Park in March and dozens were arrested.   And ironically on the other side of the spectrum, a "safe camping" program meant to protect tents from being removed in Venice Beach drew outcry from residents and vendors alike, as some called for the recall of L.A. City Councilman Mike Bonin over the initiative.  DENVER PARK TO CLOSE TEMPORARILY AFTER HUMAN WASTE, NEEDLES FOUND; CHALLENGES REACHED ‘TIPPING POINT’  Launching a 2020 mayoral bid centered on addressing the state of homelessness, L.A.

    SAN JOSE (KPIX) — A plan in San Jose aims to rein in the parking chaos plaguing the city’s east side. The city’s planning commissioner Rolando Bonilla announced an effort to implement a parking permit system but some neighbors are taking matters into their own hands. Bonilla has fielded complaints about vehicle owners traveling to east San Jose and leaving damaged or in operable cars parked in neighborhoods for long periods of time. READ MORE: Police Arrest Suspect In SF Mission District Stabbing, HomicideâPeople are absolutely using East San Jose as storage for their extra vehicles,â said Bonilla. As a result, homeowners have taken to placing orange cones or pylons to reserve spots directly in front of their home. Majesty Mayfield, who lives near I-680 and King Road, says multi-generational families on her street and an apartment complex nearby, has lead to more vehicles and more demand for parking. âThereâs even times when people get into fights, over parking. Maybe not physical fights, but definitely âHey I was gonna park there!â or âHey, you shouldnât put a cone there!â...
