Check Out This Killer House With White Hot Intensity

Every family has their little rituals. One of mine is to keep our DVR at a healthy 65 percent. It never fails that when I hit that sweet spot, our daughter comes home from school and the available space plummets down to 5 percent for the length of her visit. It is one of the perils of having a daughter that is also a film student. Everything gets recorded. I mean everything.

Restaurant owners fear losing $25,000 outdoor dining sheds

Now that summer is ending, the question of outdoor dining in permanent structures is top of mind for many restaurant owners in the Big Apple.

Earlier this year, Mayor Bill de Blasio proposed an amendment that would make the program permanent, by removing restrictions on the placement of outdoor cafes. The current Open Restaurant program expires at the end of 2022, when New York is slated to begin accepting applications for permanent structures.

3 Underrated Free Agent Signings From the Past 3 Decades

With high marks from this offseason’s free agency takeaway, we look back at a few under-the-radar great signings by the Knicks. The New York Knicks were among the most active teams of the 2021 free agency period. They re-signed Julius Randle, Derrick Rose, Taj Gibson, Nerlens Noel, and Alec Burks to multi-year extensions while bringing on former Celtics Kemba Walker and Evan Fournier to address the gaps in last year’s squad: three-point frequency and shot creation. All due respect to the departed Reggie Bullock and Elfrid Payton, but Fournier and Walker are undoubtedly the superior backcourt pairing.
