    NEW YORK (AP) — Officials say New York City created or preserved over 24,500 affordable homes last year, breaking a record for the nation’s biggest city. Mayor Bill de Blasio (dih BLAH’-zee-oh) is announcing the statistic Tuesday. The previous record was just over 23,100, set in 1989. De Blasio has made affordable housing a centerpiece of his two mayoral campaigns. The Democrat was re-elected last year. The city invested over $1 billion in affordable apartments last year. The effort mostly preserved affordable homes — over 17,300 of them. Another 7,200 new ones were created. Nearly half the homes financed rent at levels affordable to an individual making about $33,400 per year, or $43,000 for a family of three. The city has preserved or created over 87,500 affordable homes in the last four years.

    NEW YORK (AP) — A Turkish butcher and chef known widely on the internet for his videos of preparing and salting steaks with a dramatic flourish has opened a restaurant in New York City. Nusret Gokce (NOOSE-ret guck-CHEH), famous online for his videos that earned him the moniker “Salt Bae,” opened one of his Nusr-Et steakhouses in midtown Manhattan on Monday. The New York Times reports he also opened a Miami steakhouse this year. Gokce founded Nusr-Et over a decade ago, which has locations in cities like Istanbul and Abu Dabi. The 35-year-old chef says butchering was once considered a degrading job in Turkey, saying “thanks to me, all the kids want to become butchers.” He says he plans to open a Nusr-Et in London after the New York location hits its stride. ___ Information from: The New York Times, http://www.nytimes.com

    NEW YORK (AP) — Sen. Charles Schumer wants federal transportation officials to urge foreign airlines to work better with the operators of New York’s Kennedy Airport after winter weather woes cascaded into days of cancellations and delays this month. Schumer wrote a letter Monday to the federal Department of Transportation. The Senate Democratic leader notes that the department issues documents allowing foreign airlines to operate in the U.S. He suggests that it “utilize that leverage” to encourage foreign carriers to “develop more meaningful communication systems and contingency plans” with Kennedy’s governmental and private operators. The recent problems were centered in terminals that handle international flights. The department has no immediate response to Schumer’s request. Former Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood is investigating the problems, at the request of the two-state agency that runs the airport.

  • Some remain skeptical of changes coming to Cohoes BoulevardSome remain skeptical of changes coming to Cohoes Boulevard

    COHOES, N.Y. (NEWS10) – A dangerous stretch of road will soon be given a facelift with the hope of making it safer, but not everyone is on board. In June 2016, 16-year-old Brittany Knight was hit and killed while crossing a busy stretch of 787 in Cohoes. The accident sparked outrage from neighbors and a demand for change. Not a day goes by that Charles Hunter doesn’t worry. “Monday through Friday we fear for him every time,” he said. To get to school, his 15-year-old son is forced to cross at the same intersection of 787 where Knight was killed. “I could never imagine getting that phone call: your son has been hit or hurt,” he said. Hunter’s son was classmates with Knight. “He was pretty traumatized by it,” Hunter said. But the issues at that intersection began long ago. “This is Bridge Avenue Raceway,” Hunter said. “They fly through here all the time.” Many accidents have taken place in front of Hunter’s house. “All the time,” he said. “At least two a week.” After joining his neighbors to fight for change, there is hope on the horizon. The Department of Transportation announced it would raise the pavement at the Bridge Avenue intersection as well as at Dyke Avenue and Ontario Street. It will work as a terrace. By gently elevating the road four inches, the hope is it will force cars to slow down. Brian Macaravey lives nearby. Cars fly by every day. “You get used to it after a while,” he said. He supports the planned changes, but Hunter isn’t so sure. “At least something is in the process, but the roundabout, the raised pavement, I don’t think any of that is going to work,” he said. Construction for the raised pavement will begin later in the year with the hope of completion in 2019.

Nadine McKenzie was among 12 people displaced by Sunday’s blaze at a multi-family house in Mount Vernon. Sunday was the first anniversary of Shamoya McKenzie’s burial. The eighth-grader was shot in the head while riding home from basketball practice in her mother’s car Dec. 31, 2016. Prosecutors say the gunman was aiming for a gang rival of his. Authorities aren’t certain what sparked Sunday’s blaze. Mayor Richard Thomas says officials saved photos and trophies from Shamoya’s room and hope more can be salvaged. Her mother tells The Journal News the fire is bringing her down, but she’s trying to “relax and pray a lot.”

    NEW YORK (AP) — Hundreds of Haitian-Americans and others have rallied in Times Square in New York City to denounce racism and remarks that President Donald Trump is said to have made disparaging African countries and questioning further U.S. acceptance of Haitian immigrants. Politicians including Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio (dih BLAH’-zee-oh) joined the demonstration Monday. Protesters carried Haitian flags and signs with messages including “peace, love, power, dream.” Police at one point ushered demonstrators out of space designated for walking, but there were no immediate reports of any arrests. Trump is accused of using a vulgarity to describe African nations and questioning why to allow more immigrants from Haiti, rather than countries like Norway. The Republican has said the comments “weren’t made” and that he’s not a racist. He’s said he has “a wonderful relationship with Haitians.”

    ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) – New York is one of the last remaining states in the nation that doesn’t allow early voting. Groups that want to change that are now calling on Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo to include money in his state budget proposal to allow for the change, which they say could cost local election agencies about $7 million. Groups urging the governor to set aside the money include Citizen Action, Common Cause and the League of Women Voters. Cuomo has proposed a requirement that all local election boards open at least one polling place for the 12 days before an election. Supporters of early voting say it encourages voting by making it convenient. Cuomo will release his budget proposal on Tuesday.

    ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York’s governor is urging the federal government to exempt the state from the Trump administration’s plan to expand offshore oil and gas drilling. Gov. Andrew Cuomo sent a letter Monday to Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke. The Democratic governor says the Republican administration’s drilling plan “is trampling on the interests of New Yorkers and threatening the future wellbeing of our state.” The Interior Department has no immediate response. Cuomo is the latest in a series of coastal governors to seek such exemptions. So far, only Florida has gotten one. The plan would greatly expand offshore oil drilling from the Atlantic to the Arctic and Pacific oceans, including more than a dozen states where drilling is now blocked. Industry groups have praised the plan. Environmental organizations have denounced it.

    ALPLAUS, N.Y. (NEWS10) – One man’s property in Alplaus is showing us a new meaning to an ice jam. Covered in thick ice, Larry Andrews used his plow to break up as much as he can. “I’ve never had this down here this has been the worst down here.” Andrews is used to flooding at his Brookside Place home. This time overflow from the Mohawk River and Alplaus Creek froze and formed chunks of ice all over his property, and blocked his driveway. Luckily, his house is untouchable and hoisted nine feet above the ground. “When it floods down here over my head, my electricity, water, everything stays on so I’m good. The fire department keeps checking on me down here, ‘are you good’ I say, yeah I’m good.” Andrews has lived here for 20 years. He prepares for winter months in advance learning something new each time. On Saturday, water covered the fifth step to his porch. Andrews takes the good with the bad. “I could have fished right off here if I wanted to. I was getting dinner right here. I was catching perch, bullhead.” If temperatures warm up and more rain falls, Andrews says he’ll get flooded again. To Andrews, this is all worth summers on the river. “It’s nice down here. I’ll put up with this for what I have in the fall and the summer. It’s beautiful down here.” Andrews is bringing in an excavator to break up all of these chunks of ice.

  • Gov. Cuomo reveals possible 2018 budget proposalGov. Cuomo reveals possible 2018 budget proposal

    ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – On Tuesday, Governor Andrew Cuomo will be presenting his budget proposal. “People are sort of shadowboxing their way through the beginning stages of the budget battle,” Blair Horner, Director of NYPIRG, said. The budget battle, as Horner refers to it, has already begun, with Senate Republicans announcing their plan as budget negotiations begin. “This is about what are we doing to keep people in the state of New York, how we are making things affordable and what are we doing to actually create jobs,” Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan said. The Senate Majority’s plan does little to address the projected $4 billion budget deficit, with its goal to cap state spending and cap taxes. However, Horner believes the deficit shouldn’t be too big of a concern. “It’s a relatively small number of the budget and my guess is that lawmakers will figure out some way to scotch tape together a budget on time,” Horner said. “It is, after all, an election year and that’s not a good year to raise taxes, to cut services or be late on the budget.” A few key items in the budget that people expect will be addressed will be the following: The education budget. Education groups are asking for more money next year. Assembly Democrats say that this will be at the top of their budget priorities. Middle-class tax relief, since the state is expecting a shortfall due to the federal tax bill. Sexual harassment and corruption. How the state will address health insurance with the federal subsidies being reduced. “The core functions of the government, I think everyone is about 90 percent there. The fight is usually over the remaining $5 billion,” Horner said. NEWS10 ABC will have full coverage of the budget proposal on Tuesday.

  • Footprints in snow may have cracked case in several home burglariesFootprints in snow may have cracked case in several home burglaries

    COLONIE, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Following footprints in the snow may have helped Colonie police crack the case of several local home burglaries. It was a case of $15,000 in stolen jewelry from a home on Old Niskayuna Road. Colonie Police say it was good old-fashioned police work that helped them solve the case when they followed footprints in the snow. Those footprints lead straight to the parking lot of a neighboring business where employees remembered seeing a red Mercury Sable parked in the lot during the time of the alleged burglary on January 10. “Investigators continued to follow up and located some surveillance footage from the area. We were able to identify the vehicle which returned to Mr. Harris,” Colonie Police Lt. Robert Winn said. Police say the vehicle and its owner, Paul Harris, were located at his Albany apartment on Hoffman Avenue. “He did have some jewelry on him. However, it was not from our burglary. It appears as though our jewelry from our burglary was already disposed of at a local second-hand store or pawn shop.” Colonie Police say the 66-year-old is a career burglar who has been working with his alleged accomplice, 26-year-old John Pietrzak. Both are facing burglary, grand larceny, and criminal mischief charges. “It’s extremely likely that they are suspects in other burglaries. Primarily in Albany County, Southern Albany County, Altamont, Guilderland, and Bethlehem.” Winn says Colonie Police are working with those agencies to see if the suspects are connected to those crimes.

  • KKK flyers attacking Martin Luther King Jr. distributed in the Capital RegionKKK flyers attacking Martin Luther King Jr. distributed in the Capital Region

    JOHNSTOWN, N.Y. (NEWS10) – KKK flyers are popping up again in the Capital Region. This time, instead of recruiting members, their message attacks Martin Luther King Jr. ahead of Monday’s holiday. Christopher Steding lives in a quiet neighborhood in Johnstown. Over the weekend, he reached out to us to let us know about a disturbing discovery he made on his way out the door Sunday morning. “At first I thought it was just a joke, a bad joke, done in poor taste, but I don’t know anyone that crass to use that as a joke. Then the reality sunk in and it was kind of upsetting.” Tucked into his car windshield was this small piece of paper with a picture of Martin Luther King Jr. surrounded by the letters KKK. He says he felt like he was in some sort of time warp. “It was bizarre to find something in this day and age like that on my car.” The flyers refer to doctor king as a communist pervert and encourage people to question whether they want to promote “this type of man” as a national hero to our children. Toward the bottom, there’s a website and numbers for a Klan hotline. “It’s somewhat laughable in its entirety, but it’s just ignorant.” Steding says he was aware that these flyers had been popping up in surrounding communities, but says he thought that by now they’d have moved on. “I thought they would just come and die, but no they seem to be perpetuating themselves and that’s what’s probably most disturbing.” While the content is legal, under freedom of speech whoever is behind this could face charges for littering and trespassing. “Stay off my property. The only way this stuff gets to grow and succeed is if no one does nothing if people just sit back and let it happen and think someone else is going to take care of it. You gotta put the light of day on them and they usually die from that.” Police say they want to hear from you if you’ve found one of these flyers.

    NEW YORK (AP) — Prominent lawmakers and community leaders took aim at President Donald Trump’s racial rhetoric at a New York commemoration of Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday. The event Monday was led by the Rev. Al Sharpton, who spoke to a crowd of 200 at the National Action Network in Harlem.

  • Should New York State allow early voting?Should New York State allow early voting?

    ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York is one of the last remaining states in the nation that doesn’t allow early voting. Groups that want to change that are now calling on Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo to include money in his state budget proposal to allow for the change, which they say could cost local election agencies about $7 million. Groups urging the governor to set aside the money include Citizen Action, Common Cause and the League of Women Voters. Cuomo has proposed a requirement that all local election boards open at least one polling place for the 12 days before an election. Supporters of early voting say it encourages voting by making it convenient. Cuomo will release his budget proposal on Tuesday.
