ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — A New York state lawmaker is demanding a federal investigation into New York state's care for the disabled following a recent Associated Press story that revealed the case of a man infested with maggots in a state-run group home.Democratic Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi, of Utica, told the AP on Saturday that he is asking the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to investigate the group home and other state-regulated facilities for the disabled where there have been allegations of abuse and neglect.A copy of the report was obtained by The Associated Press, which found that New York state is not alone in making it difficult for members of the public to access records about allegations of abuse and neglect in state-regulated facilities for the disabled.

Ian Schrager, co-founder first of New York’s infamous Studio 54 and later the boutique hotel industry, made his mark in San Francisco in 2001 with a radical remodel of the Clift Hotel and its renowned Redwood Room.In lieu of bellmen and turndown service, you’ll pay a lower rate for a Manhattan address with buzzworthy bars and restaurants close at hand.Inspired by yacht cabins and the digital age, the minimally decorated, mostly small rooms offer hardwood floors, comfortable platform beds, 50-inch flat-screen TVs with Apple TV, 10 easy-access outlets and USB ports, wall-to-ceiling windows with triple-glazed glass and electronically operated blackout shades.Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s grill-themed, multiethnic Public Kitchen and market/cafe Louis, three bars (including a popular rooftop locale), and a multimedia/performing arts space attract locals, while verdant gardens soften the edges.Within walking distance are the New Museum, a showcase for contemporary artists, and the Tenement Museum, which focuses on urban immigrants and their decidedly pre-gentrified lodgings; check the calendar for live music at the Bowery Ballroom.Most rooms limit occupancy to two; for more space, book the king room with sofa bed (269 square feet, maximum three occupants), which also offers a soaking tub, or the one-bedroom suite (565 square feet, maximum two occupants).

- Nearly 2 tons of seized ivory to be crushed in Central Park
By MARY ESCH, Associated Press - Thursday Aug 3, 2017
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Nearly two tons of trinkets, statues and jewelry crafted from the tusks of at least 100 slaughtered elephants are heading for a rock crusher in New York City's Central Park to demonstrate the state's commitment to smashing the illegal ivory trade.[...] state environmental officials, who are partnering with the Wildlife Conservation Society and Tiffany & Co. for Thursday's "Ivory Crush," say no price justifies slaughtering elephants for their tusks.Last year, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service instituted a near-total ban on the domestic commercial ivory trade and barred sales across state lines.Since August 2014, New York law has prohibited the sale, purchase, trade or distribution of anything made from elephant or mammoth ivory or rhinoceros horn, except in limited situations with state approval.The World Wildlife Fund says the illegal wildlife trade not only threatens animal populations, but also endangers national security by funding terrorist cells.
