    Crossing guard shortage troubling NYC parents

    On any given weekday, it’s a mad rush to get across Pearl Street in Lower Manhattan outside the Peck Slip Elementary school. “A car ran the light — a car was behind him and we almost got hit,” parent Stephanie Adams said. The school is located at the foot of the Brooklyn bridge and the FDR Drive. Parents said it’s obvious why an NYPD crossing guard is so needed outside this school in particular. “We have drivers who were bound up […]

    Zadroga Act expires, leaving 9/11 first responders at risk of losing health care

    WASHINGTON — The Zadroga Act, federal law providing medical monitoring and treatment for 9/11 first responders, expired overnight after Congress failed to extend it. Patients still can get their health care for now but the program’s administrators warn it will face challenges by February and will have to begin shutting down by next summer. “I’m almost ashamed to be an American today,” deputy FDNY chief Richard Alleys said of Congress’ action, or lack thereof. “They are leaving first responders, on the […]

    Brooklyn students to give Pope Francis musical welcome to NYC

    When Pope Francis arrived on the tarmac of Joint Base Andrews in Washington, D.C., a local high school band played him in to Pharell’s “Happy.” Here in New York City, staying true to the pope’s message, Xaverian High School in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, will be welcoming the pontiff on the tarmac of John F. Kennedy Airport. Forty-four students have been hard at work since they received the call from the Vatican on Labor Day that they would be honored with this […]

    The Upper East Side home that’s fit for a pope

    When Pope Francis was elected to lead the Catholic Church in 2013, it immediately became clear that he wasn’t into the pomp and circumstance that came with the position. He gave up the red shoes, ditched the formal luxury car, and chose not to live in the Apostolic Palace. Instead, Pope Francis opted for a modest two-room apartment next to the Vatican. Here in New York, he’ll stay at a simple house during his first trip to the Big Apple […]

    ‘Divine intervention’: Faithful whose parish closed now get to see Pope Francis

    MANHATTAN — Talk about divine intervention: Claudio Marte and Mercedes Sanchez are counting their blessings after winning the extremely rare tickets to Friday’s Papal Mass at Madison Square Garden. Just 20,000 tickets were available and the Archdiocese of New York distributed the passes to local parishes which then held a lottery for those who wanted a chance to see the pontiff. Sanchez has her family to thank for the big win. “My mom was at Mass and she asked my cousin to sign me up, because […]

    Four New Jersey singers secure coveted choir spots behind Pope Francis

    It was a competition to become part of the Papal Choir as members from churches across the tri-state area vyed for a spot on the altar when Pope Francis visits the U.S. this week. At Saint Gregory the Great in Hamilton, N.J., four members were hoping and praying they could make the cut. The four traveled to Philadelphia and auditioned in front of judges, much like a music competition on television. Susan and John Shaddy are married and had two very […]

    New Jersey brewery prepares pope-inspired beer ahead of pontiff’s visit

    CAPE MAY, N.J. – Tucked away in the hills of Italy are a group of Benedictine Monks. Their philosophy to live by is ” earn your own keep.” Therefore, these fine men came up with the idea to brew beer – a task dating back to the early 1600s. The beer they made has delivered to the Vatican and even sipped by Pope Benedict – who was caught on camera holding a pint glass of their beer. In 2013 when […]

    Beautiful tribute: How an FDNY chief remembers 19 colleagues killed on 9/11

    NEW YORK — FDNY Chief Nick DelRe’s unit lost 19 members in the Sept. 11 terror attacks. “It’s a tremendous part of my life,” he said. Fourteen years have passed since 9/11 attacks and a man who rose up in the ranks during his 30-year career with the department is now pausing, reflecting and remembering. “I was home watching a 3- and 6-year-old son,” he recalled. “I dropped my 6-year-old off at first grade and figured out a way to get [my […]
