Hundreds of NYC rapists could be roaming free after cops fail to collect rape kits: sources
“Hundreds” of rapists could be roaming free in New York City because NYPD officers failed to retrieve DNA evidence from area hospitals for analysis in a “complete breakdown” of the system, The Post has learned. The shocking revelation quietly emerged weeks ago, when rape kits in dozens of active cases were found languishing in hospital storage, stunned police sources said this week. “The total number of released rape kits citywide that should have been picked up by SVD [Special Victims Division] detectives may total several hundred,” said an NYPD source, who asked to remain anonymous out of fear of reprisal.

The real loss of shoplifting: Why America’s ‘great rip-off’ hurts everyone
It’s just shoplifting, what’s the big deal? Everything is insured. The stores just write it off, right? But anyone who has ever stood in front of a locked case of toothpaste, waiting for someone to free the Colgate, knows it’s far more than that. Worse, anyone who has lived in an area that shops are abandoning en masse due to the shoplifting problem knows what is lost. The impulse to dismiss shoplifting as no big deal is wrong. A mass shoplifting problem is evidence of societal decline and degradation. There’s an urge by media outlets and liberal activists to downplay shoplifting and...

‘Noise cameras’ coming to NYC to punish loud drivers as complaints surge
“Noise cameras” that detect souped-up cars, motorcycles and other loud vehicles are coming to a street near you. A new bill authorizing the cams, authored by Councilman Keith Powers (D-Manhattan), is expected to pass Thursday. Under the measure, the cameras would activate if a vehicle reaches at least 85 decibels from 50 feet or more away. It would snap photos of the law-breaking vehicles’ license plates, triggering a ticket to be sent directly to the registered owner — similar to how the state’s red-light and speed cameras work. “Noise complaints are way up and enforcement has been very difficult — especially in my...
No one would care for NY’s tuberculosis patients — except these heroic women
In 1929 in Savannah, Ga., Edna Sutton dreamt of being a nurse. But, as a young black woman, she had few opportunities in her hometown, which was still ruled by Jim Crow laws. The only nursing she could do was visiting the Negro settlements on the outskirts of the city, administering whatever homespun help she could to ailing patients in clapboard shacks. So, she headed to New York, where there was a widespread nurse shortage. Amidst the tuberculosis epidemic, young white women were leaving the field in droves for less dangerous opportunities. The city recruited young black women from the Deep South to fill...

How much snow will NYC get in winter 2023-2024? A look at 3 forecasts
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — While the reports may vary in details, the common consensus across the forecast community is that the winter of 2023-24 will bring about greater precipitation amounts to New York City than the winter of 2022-23. The anticipated return of near average frosty precipitation amounts will be a welcome sight for those who missed regular snowfall (those not responsible for shoveling). Last winter, it wasn’t until Feb. 1, 2023, that Central Park received some calculable snowfall amounts. The late coating marked the latest first measurable snowfall for the winter season since record keeping began all the way back in 1869, according to the National Weather Service (NWS). As noted by AccuWeather, New York City only received 2.3 inches of snowfall in the 2022-2023 season, a far cry from the yearly average of 29.8 inches.
