And yet, last summer, the cameras went dark, a casualty of partisan politicking in Albany and a potent reminder of the capital’s reputation for dysfunction. Now they are being revived, and then some: The newly Democratic-led State Legislature on Tuesday voted to renew and vastly expand the speed camera program, in a nearly fivefold increase that … [Read more...] about Speed Cameras Will Surround Every New York City Public School
Competition for precious street space in New York City just keeps growing, with cars, trucks, buses, bicyclists and pedestrians all trying to navigate an increasingly congested city. Now comes another player — mopeds. A moped-sharing program that started modestly with 68 electric vehicles in a small slice of Brooklyn has expanded dramatically in recent weeks to 1,000 Vespa-style scooters, spread across many more neighborhoods in Brooklyn and now reaching into Queens. Frank Reig, a founder and chief executive of Revel, the company that started the program, said moped sharing “fits New York City of 2019.” Too much of the city’s public transportation network, he said, is focused on funneling riders into Manhattan, while treating the other boroughs as afterthoughts. “But if you need to move anywhere within Brooklyn or Queens, and get within the six million people that live here, it’s a hassle,’’ said Mr. Reig, during an interview at … [Read more...] about Now Crowding New York’s Streets: Rented Mopeds Going 30 M.P.H.
A 42-year-old mother of two from California was critically injured Monday morning when she was struck and pinned between two taxis on a Midtown Manhattan street, police sources said. Rosemarie Mifsud was putting her luggage in the trunk of a cab outside 750 Seventh Ave. about 6 a.m. when another taxi hit her from behind, wedging her between the two vehicles, cops said. "The cab pinned her,” her husband, Paul Mifsud, 44, said in a phone interview from their home in the San Francisco area. “She was putting luggage in the trunk,” he said. “So from her perspective it just came out of nowhere. He hit her pretty hard.” The devastated husband said his wife was with her brother-in-law and was headed to JFK to catch her flight home. She was in New York to attend the wake of a friend, he said. Mifsud, a software account manager, has two boys, 8 and 11, and was taken by ambulance to Bellevue Hospital in critical condition, officials said.

An upstate woman vowed to disobey a judge’s orders to send her child to visit his ne’er-do-well father in prison, saying she’d rather go to jail than connect the boy with the biological dad. Vanessa Volino, 35, spoke exclusively to the Daily News in the aftermath of an appeals court ruling that she must send her son Vincenzo Volino, 5, to visit his father, David Kadio, in prison. Volino said she would ignore the recent ruling — even if the Court of Appeals upholds it. “They’re going to have to put me in jail because he’s not going,” Volino told The News. “My child is not going to a maximum-security prison.” Kadio has completed four previous stints in state prisons for attempted burglary, burglary, reckless endangerment and leaving the scene of an accident dating back to 1990, according to the state Department of Corrections. Volino met Kadio while he was incarcerated in the same prison as her brother. The two … [Read more...] about Judge orders New York mom to let son visit dad in upstate prison, but she vows to disobey
