Thursday’s Headlines: Penn Station Edition

1:57 AM EDT on November 4, 2021

Look, there was a lot of news yesterday, so let's get right to it:

    • The big story was Gov. Hochul's announcement of a new plan to renovate Penn Station. Lots of outlets did first-day stories (NYDN; NY Post, skeptical; amNY; Gothamist, with a twist), but our own Dave Colon was smart enough to push the story forward with a second-day story ... on the first day!
    • This story about a drunk-driving cop — and the ensuing field sobriety test — should send a chill through all of us. (NYDN, NY Post)
    • The hunger-striking yellow cabbies finally won a huge victory. (NY Post, NY Times, amNY)
    • The time has come for all of us to go to Puerto Rico the day after the election. (NY Post, Gothamist)
    • Here's a post-mortem on some seemingly no-brainer ballot referenda (ooh, good use of the Latin plural!) that nonetheless failed. (NY Times)
    • And, finally, Justice Alito — WTF?
