NYC's pizza Godfather on pizza

You think you know New York pizza. You’ve seen it in movies, waited in lines for the trendiest pies, heard all of the cliches, and eaten too many dollar slices to count. But few people really know the city’s full connection — both past and present — with pizza. Brooklyn native Nino Coniglio wants to change that. Coniglio is like a relic from New York’s past, despite being in his 30s. An old-school Italian guy with a religious respect for the pizza trade, he’s more than just a pizza expert. He...

Questions Surround Miami Massage Mogul’s Role In Trump Photo Ops

Two Chinese-born tech executives managed to pose for pictures with Trump at a paid dinner, possibly thanks to a deal with a South Florida massage magnate, the Miami Herald reported Thursday. Li “Cindy” Yang reportedly ran a business that offered to link Chinese executives with President Trump and other Republican notables. But one December 2017 fundraiser at a glitzy Manhattan restaurant raises questions about how the two Chinese tech execs managed to snap selfies with the President — particu...

Instead Of Trashing Or Replacing Its Old-Style, Stereotyped Colonists-Meet-Indians Diorama, This Museum Is Interrogating It

The American Museum of Natural History in New York has a 1939 diorama purporting to show a diplomatic meeting between governor Peter Stuyvesant of New Amsterdam (today’s Manhattan) and some Lenape Indians, and — not everything in it is wrong (Stuyvesant really did have a pegleg), but in 2019, you can’t call it accurate. So the Museum decided to make the diorama an exhibit on old stereotypes, with labeling explaining the differences between what’s shown and what’s known of the site’s actual hist...

UC Irvine eager for chance to avenge last year’s loss to Kansas State

If there’s one thing that UC Irvine enjoys, it’s avenging a past loss. Last year’s loss to Cal State Fullerton in the Big West Tournament championship game only made this season’s 28-point win over the Titans in the title rematch that much sweeter. When the Anteaters watched the bracket reveal on Selection Sunday, their anticipation grew as they waited for Louisville’s opponent to be revealed. The Cardinals beat UCI in the NCAA Tournament four years ago in Seattle, and that potential pairing had...

Ex-U.S. Attorney Bharara to Trump: don't mess with Manhattan probes

Any such attempt, Bharara predicted, would likely prompt Democrats in Congress to start the impeachment process. Bharara, who was fired as head of the office soon after Trump became president, wrote a book, "Doing Justice: A Prosecutor's Thoughts on Crime, Punishment and the Rule of Law," that goes on sale Tuesday. A recurring theme in the book is the reputation of the Manhattan U.S. Attorney's office – formally known as the Southern District of New York – for political neutrality and independ...
