More than 4,200 cars have been stolen in New York City this year alone, and they are easy targets for thieves. Some people were taking part Saturday in special programs aimed at cutting back on the trend.
It’s believed the livery driver hit a 19-year-old who was crossing Baychester Avenue in Co-Op City. The teen bounced off the windshield and was thrown to the other side of the street. He was taken to the hospital in extremely critical condition.
When police and EMS arrived, they found Michael Wright, 30, with a gunshot wound to the head. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Co-Op City in the Bronx, the nation’s largest cooperative housing complex, was set Wednesday to receive a government-insured $621 million loan that will require it to stay in an affordable housing program for decades.
Co-op City runs its own power, but the generator shut down around midnight Thursday. Fifty buildings in the huge apartment complex were affected.
There was no serious damage to structures within the five boroughs from Tuesday’s 5.8 magnitude earthquake, but what if a stronger quake hit?
The Joint Terrorism Task Force arrested a man for allegedly selling eight makeshift explosives in a Bronx parking lot, FBI officials said.
Investigators confirm a man matching the description of the suspect was arrested in Bergen County over the weekend.
Investigators said the suspect who stands about 6-feet tall and has a close-cut beard is responsible for a total of six robberies.
A mugger who has been attacking victims in city elevators with an ice pick has apparently struck again in Stuyvesant Town.
It’s a sight many New Yorkers don’t expect to see.
