    Brooklyn: Anyone with a modicum of sensitivity to animals feels the palpable wrongness of the beleaguered horses being forced to spend their days lined up in chaotic traffic on Central Park South.

  9. Cracked foundations: Home property taxes fall hardest on working-class communitiesRead the original story w/Photo

    Oct 14, 2018 | New York Daily News

    Take a wild guess about where in New York City property taxes fall most heavily on homeowners, compared to what the city Department of Finance deems real estate worth.
