Dozens of protesters, including suspected members of the anti-fascist group Antifa, rampaged through Williamsburg over the weekend, trashing several national chain stores and spraying anti-police graffiti, according to police and sources. The rowdy mob marched through the Brooklyn neighborhood late Saturday, with police first receiving a 911 call at 8:20 p.m. about vandalism at an Apple Store on Bedford Avenue, where they found broken windows and the letters “FTP”—typically meaning “F–k the police” in this context—spray-painted on the wall, cops said.(Snip) “The irony of it is you can clearly tell that everyone on the video is white,”

Just north of the Golden Gate Bridge, yet a world away from San Francisco, in an unincorporated and oft-overlooked area known as Marin City, sea level rise is rarely the first worry that comes to mind. Traditional flood maps for this predominantly Black and working-class community suggest that the area is safe until the sea-level rise reaches three feet or more. But sea level rise is a lot more complicated than just waves breaking over seawalls and beaches disappearing. Imagine the groundwater beneath your feet. As the ocean moves inland, it will push all this trapped water upward until it breaks the surface.

President Trump on Monday ripped Mayor Bill de Blasio as a “communist” and a “fool” who’s transformed the Big Apple into a lawless city of homelessness and violent crime. “He’s a socialist, communist, maybe he’s a fool,” the president said in an interview on “Fox & Friends.” “He got rid of some of the most talented policemen that there are in the world. And that includes looking for very bad things beyond New York.” Trump pointed to the surge in gun violence the city has grappled with since the NYPD dismantled its anti-crime unit.(Snip) “Look at the shootings,” Trump continued. “When I left New York

For Hell’s Kitchen resident Bernadette Mastrangel, a lunch date with a friend ended ugly—discourtesy of an unhinged and uninvited guest. A bare-chested homeless man, wearing a red, white and blue cowboy hat, flew into a rage when the restaurant manager told him the bathroom was for customers only. “F–k you!” he screamed before turning on Mastrangel’s pal at a nearby table. “He goes crazy, started yelling at us, gets in our faces,” recalled Mastrangel, an eight-year neighborhood resident. “And he spits into her food.” The bizarre and unprovoked incident comes as residents of the Manhattan neighborhood complain their streets are increasingly

That’s because she is also a beauty school owner, The Post has found, as is a second member of the state board that licenses salon workers. A third person on the panel runs a membership and lobbying group for the cosmetology school industry. That’s out of four total board members. If their training-before-shampooing mandate passes, hair washers would have to spend an average of $13,354 on beauty school each
