Every year, we are proud to welcome our nation’s sea servicemembers to New York City for Fleet Week, a celebration of the courage and commitment of all those who serve our nation — and those who have given their lives to protect it.

As a patriotic American and proud mayor, I want to extend my personal welcome to each and every servicemember joining us for the longstanding Memorial Day Weekend tradition.

Fleet Week is much more than just the official start of summer in New York. It is our city’s way of saying thank you to members of the Navy, Marines, and Coast Guard for their courage and commitment to serving our nation. It is because of your work and your sacrifices that we are able to enjoy the beauty and bounty of this nation, free to live our lives and uphold our values.

New York City is proud to be the first municipality in the country with a stand-alone agency dedicated to serving veterans and their families. We cannot thank them enough, and for those who have left us, we can never forget.

As a major port city and a symbol of freedom around the globe, New York City will always stand up and salute those who defend our nation and our values. And as a city that was attacked by foreign enemies on 9/11, we bear a special responsibility to honor those who gave their lives in the conflicts…

Today, Councilmember Alexa Avilés, Brooklyn Borough President Antonio Reynoso, and the Last-Mile Coalition gathered to commend the New York City Department of City Planning (DCP) on the City’s commitment to regulating last-mile warehouses via a special permit process in conjunction with the City of Yes for Economic Opportunity. Read the full letter from Deputy Mayor Maria Torres-Springer here.

For the past two years, advocates, community members, and elected leaders have sounded the alarm about the environmental impacts of last-mile warehouse clustering and await the next steps to establish a proper special permit process for these facilities. Deputy Mayor Torres-Springer’s letter of commitment responds to the Last-Mile Coalition’s zoning text amendment application from 2022 to create a special permit process for new last-mile warehouses. The Coalition’s proposal would seek to regulate the siting and operation of these facilities, including addressing the clustering, traffic congestion, and air pollution caused by last-mile warehouses.

Editorial

You should know that in one of his first public appearances, after having resigned as Governor for New York State, Andrew Cuomo will be visiting the South Bronx. His visit to the Bronx is to meet with Members of “The New York Hispanic Clergy Organization”, which I preside over.

As you know, last summer Governor Cuomo resigned, when he was accused and practically abandoned by all his friends, politicians, and community groups, whom he had helped in the past. These so-called friends, and groups that were all too happy to kiss his ring, joined the “cancel culture” environment, that plaques us all, without due process, they washed their hands with a dismissive attitude, sending the message “Crucify him, crucify him”.

Several courts and judges have dismissed the allegations of “sexual harassment” against Governor Cuomo. With this episode behind him, Governor Cuomo has begun to visit and make public appearances by visiting different faith-based organizations and community groups.

It is very important for you to know that Governor Cuomo’s first public visit was to “God’s Battalion of Prayer Temple” in East Flatbush, Brooklyn on Sunday March 06, 2022. His next planned visit is to the “New York Hispanic Clergy Organization” in the South Bronx.

You should also know that in a recent poll, Governor Cuomo, without being a candidate nor having announced his political aspirations, has polled with just four (4) points behind Governor Kathy Hochul.

As you know, Governor Hochul was a friend and she was handpicked by Cuomo to be his Lieutenant Governor. However, she was among one of the first to throw him under the bus, in the midst of the allegations, launched against him.

I imagine that those four (4) points will evaporate very soon and Governor Hochul will have to consider asking Governor Cuomo for his support, if she wishes to be officially elected by the people to the governorship.

As President of the “New York Hispanic Clergy Organization”, I am looking forward to hosting Governor Cuomo on Thursday, March 17, 2022. We welcome him to the South…

New York City’s tourism sector is approaching a complete recovery as visitor spending and related tax revenue have surpassed pre-pandemic levels, according to a new report from New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli. The city estimates it will exceed pre-pandemic levels and welcome a record 68 million visitors by 2025.

“The number of tourists is nearly back to pre-pandemic numbers in New York City,” DiNapoli said. “Visitor spending and the tax revenue this industry generates already exceed pre-pandemic levels, but the industry’s recovery won’t be complete until we see a full return of international and business travelers, and a full recovery of local jobs. Our city and state leaders need to focus on keeping New York a desirable and safe destination for individuals and families from around the world.”

In 2023, 62.2 million people visited New York City, about 7% fewer than the 66.6 million who visited in 2019. Though fewer, these visitors spent over $48 billion in 2023, up 1.3% over 2019, as prices have risen over that time, including average daily hotel room rates, which exceeded $300. The uptick is projected to generate a record $4.9 billion in sales and other tourism-related tax revenue for the city in fiscal year (FY) 2024, a 16% jump since FY 2020. This is significant for the city, as the tourism sector’s record $53.8 billion in economic impact in 2022 accounted for 4.5% of the city’s gross product that year.

Domestic travelers, especially those making leisure trips, have led the city’s tourism sector recovery. The 50.6 million U.S….

The sports betting market has grown significantly in recent years. Read on to find out why more and more US citizens are betting on sports.
By / Publisher

In 2023, the sports betting industry increased in value by a staggering 44.5% from the previous year, with over $11 billion in revenue. This growth represents more generated revenue than every other source of income in the gaming industry, including iGaming, table games, and slots. Several factors have contributed to this sudden growth, including legalization, technology, and a cultural shift. Below, we will discuss why more US citizens are betting on sports and what the future looks like. 

State-Level Legalization

Betting on sports was taboo, and it was illegal in most states in the United States. However, a shift in the legal landscape has enabled people to enjoy betting on all types of games, including sports. The Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, which occurred in 1992, meant that betting on sports was prohibited mainly in the United States. It was not until 2018 that the federal ban was removed, essentially making betting on in-person and online sports legal.

In 2020, 19 states made it legal to participate in online sports betting; by 2023, 33 states had joined in reversing the ban.

Some states, such as Tennessee and Kentucky, have partially lifted the ban. You can bet online in these states but cannot place sports bets in person, leading to a significant rise in digital betting in these states. It is likely that as time goes on, we will continue to see more states in the US lifting…
