When the city pushed ahead with a controversial rezoning plan for East Harlem in 2017, the de Blasio administration made a promise: to find a permanent home for the people, equipment and trucks that handle the neighborhood’s trash. The neighborhood’s sanitation garage at 343 E. 99th St. and First Avenue has been partially unusable since […]
Under the new ranked choice voting system, New Yorkers got to cast ballots for their top five choices for mayor and other municipal offices in last month’s primary.

Mayoral candidate Eric Adams notched another $1.3 million in taxpayer-footed public matching funds Thursday — but the latest campaign finance numbers show how his top female primary rivals gave him a run for his money.
