Nation's Alterman keeps faith with de Blasio — In the end, Bill de Blasio won the 2013 Democratic mayoral primary so handily that you can forget he was an afterthought in the local-endorsement sweepstakes. Then-City Council speaker Christine Quinn got the News, Post and Times. De Blasio, the public advocate, got The Nation.

The ‘Corrupt’ Politician I Kinda Loved — Plated before me was a sandwich of warm kosher bison meat on rye. Across the dining room, Shelly Silver was serving up some icy stares in my direction. It was August 2008, and I trailed the Assembly Speaker to the only kosher restaurant in Denver. We were both there for the Democratic National Convention.

Political Orchestrator Honored By CUNY — By: Josh Robin Text size: + - TWC News: Political Orchestrator Honored By CUNY Play now There is a movement underway to create a lasting honor for one of New York's most influential behind-the-scenes political players, David Garth, who is credited for helping elect four of the city's last six mayors.

Rudy Giuliani on His 9/11 Bluff, the Museum Controversy and the Rise of ISIS — We followed him. We listened to him, even those who had despised him, because at that broken time we needed him. Three hundred and forty-three firefighters were gone, and he told us the FDNY "was stronger than we were before." Rudy Giuliani admits now that he was sometimes "bluffing."

Zephyr Teachout Keeps Saying What Many Think About Andrew Cuomo — Long before Ed Koch became mayor, he was a small-time lawyer in Lower Manhattan with a quaint lunch break tradition. On the sidewalk, perched on a chair, Koch spoke about current events. "I really learned to speak in the streets, carry around a chair," Koch said much later, this time getting the last word for his own obituary.

Gaza, You’re No Good For My Marriage — It started with a blue T-shirt, so small you could barely fit a frisbee in it. It was a gift for my four-year old daughter from a relative, and but for the six multicolored letters below the palm tree and the grinning camel, it probably would have registered not a single wayward glance from anyone, let alone my wife, my little girl's mother.

Carriage Driver Accused of Working Horse in Hot Weather Says She's Being Threatened With Violence — By: Josh Robin Text size: + - TWC News: Carriage Driver Accused of Working Horse in Hot Weather Says She's Being Threatened With Violence Play now The heat wave has tempers flaring over the treatment of horses, as a carriage driver accused of working her animal in the hot weather says she's now being threatened with violence, even as she claims she did nothing wrong.

A Taste Test Of NYC's Best Bagels — Why a New York City bagel tasting contest now? Others have ranked New York bagels, but nothing recently - meaning they've missed out on a crop of new arrivals. We kept it simple: plain bagels only. No toasting. Cream cheese optional. Judges were invited to handle the bagels as they wished.

Charlie Rangel Really Might Lose This Time — When he's in charge, Charlie Rangel charms. The Harlem Democrat, longtime dean of New York City's congressional delegation, calls order at large meetings with piercing whistles, fingers in his mouth gym teacher style. "Hey gang!" Rangel, 84, pipes in an old time uptown accent - part Barry White, part Groucho Marx ("certain" is pronounced "SOI-tan").

Powerbroker Richard Ravitch Thinks New York Might Be Doomed — The man who rescue helped rescue New York City from bankruptcy in the 1970s says New York is in deep financial trouble again. And this time, it's the whole state that's in deep. Dick Ravitch, the longtime New York power broker and financial guru, can smell it when smiling politicians proclaim their governments' budgets fully balanced.
