Recordings played during the Riverdale synagogue trial shed light on the role that Shahed Hussain, the government informer, played in the bomb plot.

New York's landlords are one of the few groups left supporting Sen. Pedro Espada, Jr. Espada, who heads the Senate's housing committee, gets a big chunk of his campaign contributions from landlords and real estate groups.

Speaking of Pedro: the NY Post says he has the most violations so far this election season for posting campaign fliers illegally, racking up over $30,000 in fines.

Next week's election could affect how much rent you pay. The Riverdale Press takes a closer look at where Espada and rival Gustavo Rivera stand on housing issues, like vacancy decontrol.

A raccoon broke into a Highbridge apartment building early this morning.

A Westchester woman accused of faking an illness to score free wedding gifts says doctors at a Bronx clinic falsely told her she had leukemia.
