Hello there On New Year's Eve 2009, Nathan and his friend Andrea headed toward the Apple Store near Central Park to meet another friend and some of his friends, who were all going to a party on the Lower East Side. Milagros "was wearing a big, goofy hat and eating a hot dog from the hot dog cart," Nathan said. "Something about her caught my eye. " On the ride to the gathering, Milagros could see Nathan watching her in the subway window's reflection. They started talking at that party, and also checked out another one in the apartment next door.

NEW YORK - They are tobogganing on Broadway this week. And diving for touchdowns in a foam pit just off Times Square. Helmeted mannequins in full NFL uniforms share the Coach and Lancôme displays at Macy's. On 42d Street Wednesday night, the Harlem Boys Choir serenaded America's Game. The Super Bowl may be played in New Jersey on Sunday, but it is being played out in full measure in New York City this week. In recognition of an outdoor game at a cold-weather site, the NFL and New York have turned a 13-block stretch of Broadway - the spiritual heart of this great city - to an open-air temple for all things football.

Bruno is back, baby! Angelo Bruno, whose reign as Philadelphia mob boss ended with a shotgun blast to his head in 1980, is experiencing a posthumous resurgence.

A year after enthusiastically announcing that Philadelphia was throwing in its hat to seek the 2024 Summer Olympic Games, Mayor Nutter has pulled that hat back. Citing concerns about cost and the logistics of hosting other large events here in the near future, Nutter said the timing was just not right. "The time, the effort, the fund-raising, the prospect of creating new venues . . . it is a tremendous, costly endeavor," Nutter said Wednesday. "We decided that, at this time, we would not put in or submit a bid. " The mayor notified the U.S. Olympic Committee earlier this month of the city's decision not to pursue a bid to host the 2024 summer games.

Atlantic City's attempt to auction off its defunct municipal airfield, Bader Field, has been postponed until Aug. 4, city officials said. Elizabeth Terenik, the city's planning director, said the sealed-bid auction was postponed due to a "technical issue regarding the advertising required. " She did not say how many, if any, bids were received before Thursday's original deadline. Bader Field, a historic airstrip on Albany Avenue leading into the city, once fetched an $800 million offer from a company contemplating a casino complex.

ATLANTIC CITY - In the latest blow to Atlantic City, layoff notices were issued to Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino employees Monday, advising them that the casino will close in mid-September.

About 1,600 workers would be affected by this latest shutdown. Trump Plaza issued a statement just before noon Monday stating: "WARN notices were sent to the employees of Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino today to advise them that the management and board of directors of Trump Plaza Associates L.L.C.

Mayor Kenney might have persuaded City Council to support a tax on sweetened beverages. But in the end what could matter most is if his lawyers can persuade the courts. Minutes after Council passed the unprecedented per-ounce levy Thursday, the beverage industry vowed to continue a fight it has already poured more than $5 million into by filing suit. Kenney wasn't rattled. "We're ready," he said. But a particularly qualified voice says Kenney shouldn't be so confident. Former state Supreme Court Chief Justice Ronald Castille has called the tax unconstitutional.

  While we mourn his passing with sadness, John Timoney, who was once described as having "the soul of a street cop, the analytical skills of a professor, and the gruff tenacity of - in his words - an 'egomaniacal loudmouth,'" will be remembered by many for having revolutionized the way the Philadelphia Police Department looked at and developed strategies to fight crime. It could be said that Timoney was an innovator at a time when innovation in law enforcement was in short supply.

Most likely Mayor Kenney had a number of ideas when he was merely a councilman that he can finally put into action now that he's the top dog at City Hall. But the fact that he can doesn't necessarily mean that he should. Three years ago, for example, when then-Councilman Kenney proposed selling the luxury box seats that the city acquired in exchange for helping to fund construction of Lincoln Financial Field and other sports venues, the idea fell upon Mayor Nutter's deaf ears and went nowhere.

In his fiction, Jay McInerney chronicles New York City life. From the coked-up wannabes he portrayed in his now-classic first novel, Bright Lights, Big City , to the titans of various industries who are now a good three decades older in his new and eighth novel, Bright, Precious Days (which is out on Tuesday), McInerney gives us characters and dialogue that could happen only in Manhattan, and we love him all the better for the critical lens he shines on these very particular island inhabitants.

TRENTON - New Jersey lawmakers on Thursday passed legislation that would nearly double the state's minimum wage to $15 an hour over the next five years, despite Gov. Christie's veto threat. Effective Jan. 1, 2017, the bill would raise the wage from the current $8.38 an hour to $10.10. The legislation would phase in greater increases through 2021, when the wage would reach $15 an hour. The wage would be tied to inflation to adjust for the cost of living. The legislation passed the state Senate by a vote of 21-18 on Thursday.
