Leonard Bernstein, the musician and conductor, would have turned 100 years old tomorrow. Bernstein, who died in 1990 at the age of 72, wrote symphonies and operas as well as scores to ballets and Broadway plays, like “West Side Story,” “On the Town,” “Wonderful Town” and “Candide.” He was also the director of the New York Philharmonic from 1959 to 1969. “He was eclectic down to his fingernails,” said Humphrey Burton, a friend of Bernstein’s who also wrote the biography “Leonard Bernstein.” “He’s not your average classical composer. He’s not your average showbiz composer, either. He struck a chord with a far … [Read more...] about New York Today: A Leonard Bernstein Centennial

Levine and Amy Zerba Sept. 5, 2018 Good morning on this heated Wednesday. More than one million New York City children head back to school today. Eliza Shapiro, who covers education for the Metro desk, filled us in on the biggest issues facing city public schools as their new chancellor, Richard A. Carranza, embarks on his first full year at the helm of our school district — the largest in the country. “The pressure will be on him this fall to back up his rhetoric with citywide plans for change in some of the areas he has identified as problematic,” Ms. Shapiro said. Most prominently: segregation. “New York is seen as a politically liberal bastion, and in the last year in particular, the fact that New York schools are some of the most … [Read more...] about New York Today: A Back-to-School Preview

Should we be worried that Hurricane Florence, a Category 4 storm, will hit New York? The short answer: probably not. “That is extremely unlikely,” said Joel Cline, a meteorologist at the National Hurricane Center. “At least not as a hurricane or a tropical storm.” [For more on Hurricane Florence, follow The New York Times live updates here .] The center’s models predict that the hurricane will make landfall in the Carolinas on Friday. A ridge of high pressure between the storm and New York should prevent the hurricane from moving toward us, Mr. Cline said. “It should move strictly west to northwest.” We could, however, see some indirect effects from the … [Read more...] about New York Today: Could Hurricane Florence Hit New York?

But the initiative raises more questions than answers: Just how will the plan work, and would that sum -- which comes out to a modest $170 per person -- really be enough to pay for what sounds like a massive increase in benefits? Details during the announcement on national TV, then later at a news conference at Lincoln Hospital in the Bronx, were sparse. But as Elisabeth Benjamin, vice president of health initiatives at New York City's Community Service Society, pointed out, New York City may have a head start when it comes to providing health care for low-income and undocumented residents that makes the plan more feasible than it would seem otherwise.That's because the plan, called NYC Care, builds on the city's existing public-option health insurance program called … [Read more...] about New York City experiments with health care for all
