Dear Mr. Lynch, I am writing to express my extreme displeasure with your unnecessary – and wildly offensive – August 14th cover story headline and illustration. I am a native New Yorker, a longtime reader of the Post, and a proud Italian American. While I am no stranger to the Post’s attention grabbing headlines and graphics, I urge you to seriousl...

Governor Andrew Cuomo on Monday in a radio interview addressed at length the heated exchange his brother Chris had with a man who called him “Fredo” — a reference to the film "The Godfather" he said was demeaning to people with Italian heritage. In the video, the CNN anchor says the label is an “aspersion” to Italians, a reference to a character fr...

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo's profane confrontation with a conservative agitator who compared him to a character from "The Godfather" was the latest chapter in the Cuomo family's decades-long, public battle against Italian slurs and stereotypes. Cuomo, the CNN anchor, was captured in a video posted Monday showing him angrily threatening a provocateur wh...

Andrew M. Cuomo was resoundingly elected to a third term as governor of New York on Tuesday, riding Democratic enthusiasm in a deep blue state to beat back his Republican challenger and capture a victory for the party’s old guard. In defeating Marcus J. Molinaro, the Dutchess County executive, Mr. Cuomo, 60, soaked up the vast majority of votes in...

The Grande New York, part of the fleet of the Grimaldi Group, has been christened on Wednesday, April 18, 2018 in the Port of New York- New Jersey at FAPS Port Newark Auto Marine Terminal.

You know him as the face of CNN's morning lineup and Chris Cuomo, co-anchor of "New Day," credits his fight for a "good argument" from his family. Cuomo, the son of former New York governor, Mario Cuomo, and the brother of Andrew Cuomo, the current governor, spent much of his childhood moderating "really hot and heavy discussions" at the dinner tab...

The state Senate passed a bill late Wednesday night that would name one of Gov. Cuomo's signature projects after his late father. The bill, introduced at the end of the legislative session by Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan (R-Suffolk County) would name the new Tappan Zee Bridge under construction the “Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge.” The curr...

Last week, some of New York’s finest members of the Italian American community gathered to honor some of its brightest in business, sports, entertainment, and politics at Cipriani’s 42nd Street for The National Italian American Foundation’s (NIAF) Annual New York Gala. This year, there was a major focus on financial and professional services, with...

For Gov. Christie, it's what gives him his "emotional" side. Mayor de Blasio credits it for providing his "energy and creativity," while former Sen. Al D'Amato points to it as the source of his work ethic.   And for the late Mario Cuomo, it spawned in him an early love for baseball — thanks to a kindred feeling for Joe DiMaggio — and the imp...

If the Germans covered Albany, they'd have a word for the ambivalence that Andrew Cuomo provokes in those with fond memories of his father. The mostly friendly rivalry between him and Mario is no secret—how the son made sure to let people know that as a member of Bill Clinton's Cabinet, he'd attained a rank above that of mere governor; how the fath...
