Tuesday’s Headlines: Steve Cuozzo Has Gone Too Far This Time Edition

12:01 AM EDT on September 4, 2018

Welcome back to the grind! First off, we start our second week of State Senate primary coverage with a Brooklyn-Staten Island battle pitting Jasmine Robinson vs. Diane Savino. Savino was a member of the much-hated Independent Democratic Conference, which gave the Republicans control of the Senate...yet StreetsPAC declined to endorse Robinson. Kinda tells you something, right? So will her answers to our questionnaire.

In any event, all of our prior coverage is archived here, so if you missed our stories last week, this is a good time to bone up before the Thursday, Sept. 13 primary.

Now, the news:

    • The Post and the Daily News also reported that a cyclist who was run down by mob of assailants on all-terrain vehicles last week died over the weekend. Died, Steve. Died. (NYP, NYDN)
    • And the Post even showed how bad driving could kill a beloved police dog, too. (NYP)
    • The 7 train was delayed on Sunday because of a cormorant — not that the NYPD could properly identify it. (NYP)
    • The Times offered a green-cab-driver's eye view of the Uber and Lyft explosion.
    • It was a rough holiday weekend for New Jersey Transit, but the future looks good for Amtrak users at Penn Station starting today. (NYT). Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal offers one reason why NJT service is so bad (insert fake cough here).
    • People really should not beat up bus drivers, amNY reminds us.
    • Legal heavyweight Stephen L. Carter gets a parking ticket and realizes what I just pointed out last week on Streetsblog: The parking is too damn low! (Bloomberg)
    • Oh, and in case you missed it, the Village Voice is really dead this time. (Gothamist)
    • And another ICYMI: The mayor lied on Friday's WNYC radio show, saying, "the NYPD is intensely committed to Vision Zero, both in terms of enforcement and investigation," which we all know isn't true. Well, maybe the mayor is just preparing his sketch for the Inner Circle comedy show because that line always kills!
