The tallest filing cabinet in the world.

Our old man editor needed a day off, so he’s somewhere in America sending back pictures, starting with today’s shot of the tallest filing cabinet in the world. So let’s get straight to the weekend roundup:

  • All these police unions endorsing president trump is disturbing Not because cops love Trump, but because of how whiny our snowflake police forces have become. Reminder: it’s not the job of politicians to “support” cops. It’s the cops job to follow the laws and policies created by politicians. (NY Post)
  • Clayton Guse of the Daily Newsuh has been all over the train window vandalism story, but now the Times has done the full broadsheet treatment. Meanwhile, amNY focused on the MTA’s security response, which is, literally, broken windows policing.
  • Friend of Streetsblog — and a member of the mayor’s ignored Surface Transportation panel — Sarah Kaufman argued in a Forbes op-ed that the city needs to do much more to give essential workers options.

  • There’s a petition drive to get a bike path on the Verrazzano Bridge. (Brooklyn Paper)
  • Pat Foye continues to be amNY’s most prolific writer.
  • Motorcycle crashes continue to be the year’s biggest road carnage story. On Saturday, a dirt bike rider was killed in Queens (amNY), on the same day as another Queens crash (NYDN) and one day after another motorcyclist was killed in Brooklyn (NYDN)
