Click here for high-resolution version NEW YORK, NY–(Marketwired – Sep 10, 2013) – Enjoy a time-honored Thanksgiving tradition in an all-new way at the brand-new Courtyard New York Manhattan/Herald Square, as its sleek new 17 floors offer up some of the best views in town of the age-old Thanksgiving Day Parade. As one of the newest choices among New York City’s Midtown Manhattan accommodations , the Courtyard New York Manhattan/Herald Square combines enviable location with state-of-the-art technology. Guests will appreciate the hotel’s position near Times Square and Herald Square just as much as they will enjoy the hotel’s complimentary Wi-Fi access and the lobby’s inviting theater and GoBoard technology. In addition to staying entertained, visitors can stay on top of the latest travel conditions while they’re on the road, with these lobby features. But as the holiday season approaches, there’s an even grander reason to book a room at this new property: the Thanksgiving Day Parade on November 28, 2013. As part of its Thanksgiving Day package , the hotel provides visitors a choice among three room options as well as a welcome amenity so that they can sit back in contemporary style and comfort as they watch one of New York City’s greatest traditions unfold before their eyes. Punctuating the magic of this Thanksgiving event are the thoughtful appointments guests will encounter during their stay. Guestrooms, for example, offer a spaciousness that’s highly prized among Midtown Manhattan hotels , and large desks with convenient lighting and ergonomic chairs provide an ideal workspace. Plus, with the hotel’s ideal location near New York’s fashion district and renowned Fifth Avenue shopping, Black Friday will be an experience almost as memorable as Thanksgiving itself.

There were stretches in the second half where their passing offense looked virtually unstoppable. A healthy Hakeem Nicks and an emerging Rueben Randle, along with the always explosive Victor Cruz , is too much for the Cowboys’ overmatched secondary. They also did a great job limiting big plays by the Cowboys. The longest gain from scrimmage by Dallas was only 23 yards. If the Giants can match this formula and hold onto the ball, they will win this game. Expect a few long gainers from Dallas but continued struggles against the Big Blue air attack and far less turnover gifts. Prediction: Giants 28, Cowboys 24 Week 13: @Washington Redskins Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports The Redskins were excellent stopping the run in 2012, allowing only 95.8 yards per game and an acceptable 4.2 yards per carry. If Week 1 was any indication, the 2012 Redskins run defense is history. They allowed an embarrassing 263 yards to the Eagles, with running back LeSean McCoy accounting for a majority of this total with a 184-yard effort. David Wilson may want to solve his fumbling woes in time for this game because it appears the Redskins might have some issues containing shifty, speedy backs. Speaking of running the ball, the Redskins did it at will to the Giants last season. They piled up a ridiculous 456 yards in two games. Robert Griffin III ‘s ability to execute the read option was a big reason why, as the Giants routinely looked off balance and unsure against the unique offensive set. RG3 was clearly rusty against the Eagles following offseason knee surgery that caused him to miss all of the preseason.

The look: A black va-va-voom mermaid gown featured a silky slip top that shimmied down to a red-carpet-worthy train, while a frothy bias-cut dress of the palest sage winked toward a nightie cut. A black embroidered romper dazzled with up-to-there hemlines and sprays of beading.Flirty corsets laced up the back of cropped utility jackets and well-cut trenches, and a tailored cream sheath dress came in need-to-touch suede.

Allbritton adds New York site to Politico empire

He got into the mayors race in May, and aside from a few dust-ups with hecklers, was largely well-received at first, holding the lead for most of June and July. But then an obscure gossip website named The Dirty released X-rated exchanges between Weiner and a 22-year-old woman that took place well after the candidate quit the House. Weiner and his wife, top Hillary Rodham Clinton aide Huma Abedin, held an emergency news conference in which the candidate vowed to stay in the race. But his campaign never recovered. He plunged in the polls. He increasingly engaged in angry exchanges with voters, including a shouting match in a Brooklyn bakery last week. And his media attention largely dried up, except for the occasional combative interview and late-night talk show mockery of his online sexting pseudonym, Carlos Danger. Spitzer resigned as governor in 2008 after admitting he paid for sex with prostitutes. In exile he bounced around television as a pundit. Then, just four days before the deadline, he announced he was running for comptroller. Unlike Weiner, who made a point of fielding voters questions about his scandal, Spitzer apologized a few times and then refused to talk about it. He largely eschewed retail campaigning situations that could have led to awkward exchanges with voters in favor of national TV interviews and a big-budget television ad campaign, financed with his own millions. Spitzer played up his time as Sheriff of Wall Street while New York attorney general and focused his campaign on minorities living outside Manhattan. He took early lead in the polls, but the race tightened dramatically in recent weeks as the Democratic establishment rallied around his opponent, Scott Stringer, Manhattan borough president.

New York as Comeback City? Voters pass judgment on Weiner, Spitzer

Allbritton said the three-year-old Web site will focus laser-like on New York and its power centers, including the media, city and state politics, culture and business. It will target a sophisticated insider audience of New Yorks most powerful. The price was not disclosed. The move follows Allbrittons statement that he wanted to double down on digital media when he put his television stations on the market in May. He sold the stations including flagship ABC affiliate WJLA-7 to Sinclair Broadcast Group of Baltimore. The acquisition allows Allbritton to use a relatively small investment of several million dollars to enter a high-profile, highly competitive market and experiment with a business model that could pay off. Politico co-founder and executive editor Jim VandeHei, who will remain in Washington, will become president of Capital New York. Capital New York has fewer than 10 editorial employees, but VandeHei said he plans to expand the staff so he can blanket three news beats: New Yorks City Hall, Albany politics and the business of media. Our hopes are to hire two-dozen editorial employees in the next 30 to 45 days, and all in those three areas, VandeHei said. The idea is to go in heavy. Capital New York co-founders Josh Benson and Tom McGeveran will stay on to run the Web site. It sounds like they are going to hire a bunch of people in New York, which is good, said Craig Aaron, president of Free Press, a Washington-based media watchdog group. Capital New York appears to be under-resourced, and the types of things that Capital New York does is in line with the kinds of stories Politico wants to write. Capital New York is expected to follow Politicos business playbook, which is a combination of issue-based advertising, subscription revenue and sponsored events.
