So Donald Trump just got sued for $40 million by the New York Attorney General, who claims that Trump University is an unaccredited, for-profit sham that defrauded thousands of people. “No one, no matter how rich or famous they are, has a right to scam hardworking New Yorkers. Anyone who does should expect to be held accountable,” said Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. Just think, if Trump had actually talked his way into the presidency (remember that?!), this would’ve been his Watergate.

Inequality and New York’s Subway [article]

Smart idea for an infographic. Whenever an image gets you to interact with a serious topic in a smart way, take a step back and think about why it’s so effective. That’s where the lessons are.

Jimmy McMillan, aka “The Rent is Too Damn High” guy, is running for mayor again. You might remember him from his memorable 2010 New York gubernatorial run, where a televised debate put him on the same plane as current governor Andrew Cuomo. He also ran for president in 2012, and even held a debate with Vermin Supreme, which we liveblogged for some reason. Now, Animal New York has created a gangsta rap-infused music video for McMillan’s 2013 campaign, sure to give him a bump in the polls. You’re welcome.

Penn Station can’t move. But Madison Square Garden can. Is it time to move the iconic arena so the outdated, decaying, poorly organized center of the East Cost transportation universe can grow? That’s what Vin Cipolla and Robert Yaro argue in the New York Daily News, stating, “The tracks stop there, so Penn Station can’t move. But the Garden can.” The current MSG is the fourth iteration of the iconic athletic venue, and you’re more likely to board your Amtrak train first at Penn Station if you look at the arrivals board, not the departures board. (photo by Mike Albans/New York Daily News)
