Could this land on Staten Island become a New York City landmark? In 1972 Dorothy Day who founded the Catholic Worker movement bought a pair of bungalows that were part of a 1920s retreat known as Spanish Camp. There she found a refuge alongside her working-class brethren looking to escape the toil and grime of the city. A developer bulldozed her cottages in 2001 to make way for mansions that were never finished like the one in this photo by @nytchangster. While Dorothy is considered a…

Prabhjot Kaur 17 relaxing on a #hammock on the American Prairie Reserve in #Montana. Prabhjot was one of six New York City high school students with an aptitude for science who received grants from Sponsors for Educational Opportunity an academic program to help low-income students at New Yorks public schools earn college degrees. They spent time on the #prairie for experience and insight into their scholastic passions as well as to observe prairie dogs dig up dinosaur bones and study bison…

The 40th Precinct or as it's known to police the 4-0 is a 2-square-mile area at the southern tip of the Bronx. Across New York City homicides plummeted to 333 in 2014 the lowest since comparable statistics started to be kept a half-century ago.

Staten Island Sunday: Sights and scenes in Midland Beach

Midland Beach: This East Shore neighborhood -- in the midst of a slow but steady climb back from the devastation that Hurricane Sandy wreaked there two years ago -- presented a diversity of scenes Sunday morning, with surviving one-story bungalows, some occupied and others vacant, standing in sharp contrast to modern multi-story homes next door.

Sunrise over the #BeringSea in #Alaska. @jimwilson125 recently traveled to the far western reaches of the state. His destination: St. Lawrence Island which was once home to a 4800-acre radar station called Northeast Cape. Roughly 600 military installations across Alaska were never fully cleaned up after World War II and the Cold War. As a result health problems in communities nearby have lingered and festered. Today several longtime residents on St. Lawrence Island are speaking up about the…

The @WhiteHouse seen from afar earlier this evening by @zachgibson5 a photographer in the #Washington bureau of @nytimes. Earlier this summer @michelleobama announced the end of a longtime ban on photography during public tours of the #WhiteHouse. With this in mind we asked our politics reporter @nickwouldgo to put on his tourist hat. On Wednesday morning @nickwouldgo will make a #Snapchat story live on The New York Times Snapchat (username: thenytimes). You never know who might pop in to…

Children at a playground in #Havana. Unlike many developing nations Cubas demographics look more like the graying communities of Northern Europe or Japan societies trying to figure out how to finance the needs of their old people without a large youth population. Much has been made of the historic shift underway in #Cuba. But measurable change will come slowly stalled between the leaderships desire for prosperity and its determination to maintain control.
