Their latest assault is their billboard outside the Lincoln Tunnel that takes direct aim at Christmas. Comment.

Finally, our predictions for the new year!

A new year is upon us. In the grand old tradition, we asked borough luminaries to make some predictions for the next 12 months, and threw in some of our own for good measure. Some of these you can actually expect to happen, others are, well, fun guess work. So if any come to fruition, remember, you heard it here first! Comment.
