The New York State Fair is about to start its 13-day run to wrap up summer. There are some new additions to classic attractions like the butter sculpture, racing pigs and Cornell barbecue chicken. On Sunday the 25th, a full day of “Christmas in August” events are planned at the Expo Center including a visit from Santa. New food choices are coming to the Pizza Emporium -- including “Chicken and Waffle Pizza” and a “Spicy PB&J Bacon Dog.” New trackless trains with bubble-blowing smokestacks will make it easier to get around the fairgrounds. There are also free trams and an overhead Skyliner ride. The fair runs from Wednesday through Sept. 2. More than a million people attended the fair last year. Copyright 2019 The Associated Press.

340 tax subsidies requested. 340 tax subsidies approved. An I-Team analysis of the Public Authorities Control Board, a little-known but powerful New York State financial regulator, shows the oversight body rarely turns down requests for public money. In fact, between January 2017 and November 2018, the PACB approved $42 billion worth of grants, loans and government-backed bonds. Not a penny of requested money was denied. “All we are doing is throwing money out the door to have a shiny new object located here,” said Sen. Michael Gianaris (D-Astoria). “And part of that has been the PACB just rubber-stamping deals without really evaluating them properly.” Top Tri-State News Photos Getty Images Last month, the Democrat-controlled Senate nominated Gianaris for one of three voting seats on the PACB, but Gov. Andrew Cuomo declined to confirm the nomination. It was widely believed Cuomo blocked the nomination because Gianaris fiercely opposed the $3 billion … [Read more...] about Want a Tax Subsidy?

The authority has also asked people without immunization to contact a healthcare provider if they face symptoms of measles which includes, rash, cough, fever, pink eye and running nose. Symptoms of measles usually appear 10 to 12 days after the exposure. The Department of Health also released a chronology of the tourist's travel route. • Feb. 16-19: La Quinta Inn, 31 West 71st St., New York • Feb 16-17: Oasis Bible Tours at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1000 5th Ave., New York • Feb. 19: Watchtower Educational … [Read more...] about Measles warning issued after Australian tourist visits New York City
By Meredith Goldstein Globe staff Sometimes I hear about a kind of jealousy between people in New York City and Boston. But it has nothing to do with baseball. It’s about a different thing. My single friends in Boston tell me it would be “sooo much easier” to find love if they lived in New York City. Those friends (and some Boston-area readers of my Globe advice column) believe that the dating options would be more plentiful in New York, and that there’d be a better night life scene for meeting strangers. They know for certain there’d be a more diverse dating pool — and perhaps fewer men on apps in TB12 hats. (Not judging the apparel, but that particular look and fandom isn’t for everyone.) Meanwhile, some of my single friends and readers in New York City have wondered whether it might be easier to find a partner in Boston. Those New Yorkers assume that in a smaller city, people might be less transient. Less fickle. They believe that in a … [Read more...] about Which city is better for singles: Boston or New York?
