Three people were busted in New York’s Holland Tunnel today after cops somehow couldn’t help but notice their pickup truck, decorated in a ludicrously charming “hillbilly teens playing Army” motif, was allegedly packed with loaded guns, combat equipment, body armor and drugs. Why? Rescue mission, obviously!
President Barack Obama was in New York City this week to join Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show. Moments before his motorcade cruised across Park Avenue, some apparently oblivious or brazen bicyclist thought they could “make the light” and cross before POTUS. The cops were not having it.
Cops, panicked, jog by. A Range Rover swerves through an alley, screeches to a halt and backs into a police car. Metal crunches, glass shatters, and in the background a familiar accent is shouting for the cops to “shoot him! Shoot him!” This isn’t a movie. It’s just another Monday in New York City.
Whose side are you on? Are you a stone-cold originator, or some sugary carpetbagging poseur? Would you like sprinkles with that, or might a tasty chocolate dip be more to your liking? Are you in or are you out? Sugar cone or waffle? Most importantly: Mister Softee or New York Ice Cream?
There is nothing sadder on the road than a road rage fight, except when it’s a road rage fight between two slightly older guys pulled over on the side of a gray and drizzly New York City highway. That’s what makes it so excellent when two cops run up and end it with nothing but pure, competent justice.
The City of New York just live-streamed their police crushing a parking lot’s worth of unlicensed dirt bikes and ATVs. The vehicles were presumably confiscated from hooligans who’d been caught using them to do stunts in streets. Anybody feel better now?
“Our issue is not the quality of the product,” Cadillac’s brand director Melody Lee told Bloomberg. “Our challenge is relevance.”
The L train, connecting Manhattan with Brooklyn’s hip neighborhoods of Bushwick and Canarsie, carries 225,000 people on an average weekday. At some point in the next few years, it’ll have to be completely shut down for repairs. It’s in a dangerously bad state. Here’s why, and how it’ll be fixed.

Amid all of humanity’s fantastical projections of future technology, one stands out: we may live to see a day when it is impossible to piss between moving New York City subway cars.
[A sweet van under the lights. Police escort, New York City.]
We’ve all considered a classic “TEAM USA” tattoo above the eyebrows. What better way to advertise your allegiance? Makes it hard to get away with crimes though. Speaking of which, if you see this particularly patriotic face the NYPD would like to hear from you.
This scheme to cheat a driver out of parking spot was so audacious it made The Telegraph. Finding parking in New York City is for real.
Fifty years ago this evening, at roughly 5:15pm, every light connected to New York’s power grid flickered out–along with those of 30 million people throughout the Northeast. Chaos didn’t ensue, oddly enough.
Everyone who told you that you never use math when you grow up was lying. I used math just the other day to figure out some awesome shit: if it makes sense for me to rent a shipping container as a garage for my crappy ass old car.
The Pope, AKA Pope Francis, AKA “Cool Pope,” is a heavenly man. But since he’s visiting New York, he will officially make travel here a living hell. Thankfully, a helicopter service in New York will raise all of our cross-town travels a little closer to God, as they’re offering the low-low rate of $95 just to go from…
We knew that the US Department of Transportation was testing connected vehicle technology in the relatively small town of Ann Arbor, Michigan. But now that tech is getting a big test in a big city: New York.
It’s not just the trains that are decrepit in the New York City subway system, it’s the stations as well. But everything is surely fixable, right? Well, a new report from the Citizens Budget Commission, a non-partisan non-profit, says that really, it is totally fixable. Though at current repair rates, it will take 52…
