New York City’s COVID-19 vaccination passports disproportionately disadvantage black communities and it isn’t even close.
Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the city’s plan to implement COVID-19 vaccination requirements for gyms, restaurants and other businesses.
“It’s time for people to see vaccination as necessary to living a good and full and healthy life,” de Blasio said during a news conference.
Beginning on Sept. 13, New York City citizens will be forced to show either their “Key to NYC Pass” or the state’s “Excelsior Pass” if they wish to enter the aforementioned businesses.
“It will require vaccination for workers and customers in indoor dining, in indoor fitness facilities, indoor entertainment facilities,” the mayor said.

The shooting unfolded in the Queen’s neighborhood of Corona just before 11 p.m. Saturday. Police said 40 shell casings have so far been recovered from the scene near 99th Street and 37th Avenue.
“This was a brazen, coordinated attack, for lack of a better word,” NYPD Chief of Detectives James Essig said during a news conference. “This is unacceptable, and it has to stop.”
In a separate news conference on Sunday, Democratic mayoral candidate Eric Adams referred to the incident as a “mass shooting.”
NYPD officials released surveillance video of the two unknown males approaching the group on foot. Both men brandished firearms and began firing at people standing in front of the barbershop. Two other unknown males on mopeds followed behind the shooters and picked them both up before fleeing.
Police said that bystanders were walking along the sidewalk and that a party was in progress at a restaurant a few doors down from the barbershop at the time of the shooting.

Bombshell Report Surfaces On COVID Deaths In New York Nursing Homes
Republicans were outraged. U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., called for a Justice Department investigation.
“The families of thousands of dead New York seniors deserve accountability and justice for the true consequences of Governor Cuomo’s fatally flawed nursing home policy and the continued attempts to cover it up. It’s clear what’s happening here is criminal,” Zeldin said.
The Post report coincided with a second correction from state officials in as many weeks about underreported nursing-home deaths.
ALBANY, N.Y. — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo had one overriding message Tuesday as he delivered his annual budget address from New York’s state Capitol: If Washington doesn’t send New York $15 billion as part of a pandemic relief package, he’ll have no choice but to slash public payrolls, cut services and raise taxes on the rich.
Cuomo argued that the state is uniquely entitled to those funds because the pandemic hit New York so hard last spring and was comparatively defenseless thanks to federal government bungling.
He went one step further and threatened to pursue litigation if the federal government did not acquiesce to his ask, though officials, when asked, did not immediately say whom the state might sue or what legal arguments New York could employ.
For the moment, though, it’s uncertain whether the state will get what it is asking for, and its new budget, due at the end of March, reflects that uncertainty. “We don’t know, in short, what level of aid we will get, but the budget is dependent on that number,” he said.
The full amount would mean New York could avoid squeezing its localities out of their allotted aid, offer relief to small businesses and restaurants, focus on education and workforce issues, and get on the road to recovery, he said. Anything less, he said, would be an affront to the suffering the state experienced as one of the first to be overwhelmed by the pandemic, calling it a “2021 version of the federal government saying ‘drop dead’ to New York.”

It’s mass transit, all right.
New York City subway riders were fuming Saturday over the utter lack of social distancing on a very packed train, video shows.
Dozens of straphangers were already squeezed “like sardines” inside an N train when it pulled into the Lexington 59th street station around 5:00 p.m., according to the footage.
Some riders jammed into the car — but one outraged woman asked “What the f–k distance is this? They’re squeezing like sardines.”
“It’s because MTA don’t give a f–k about the people,” said a man standing outside the overflowing train doors.
“The MTA is running as much service as we can with the crews we have available,” MTA spokesman Aaron Donovan said in a statement.
