    Primary Culler: Green Leads in Public Advocate Race, But Can He Dodge a Runoff?

    ​Mark Green was the first New York City public advocate -- a sort of Mayoral VP and public busybody -- and, after a two-term interregnum by Betsy Gotbaum, he looks good to become the third. But it's not such a sure thing as it once looked. When Green announced for the race he actually scared ... More >>

    Bob Kerrey to Quit New School

    You can question the New School occupation forces' methods in their April 10 protest. Their target, hated New School President Bob Kerrey, certainly did. But now it looks like the protesters are getting the last laugh: Bob Kerrey is leaving. He says he'll go when his contract expires in July 2011, w ... More >>

    Rally Today for Terminated Parsons Teachers

    Photo by Janice Faber. Another demonstration is planned at the embattled New School's Adminsitration Building at 66 West 12th Street at noon today; this one, however, is organized not by student occupiers, but by faculty to protest the recent staff cuts at the Parsons fine arts department, which i ...

    New School Aftermath: More Kids Smacked/Arrested, Kerrey Clings to Power

    If you want to know more about the whys-and-wherefores of the New School occupation, you can go to the New School in Exile site -- we sent them a note Friday and just got back a press release. NSIE carefully avoids identifying itself with the occupiers, whom they describe as "Situationist-inspired s ... More >>

    New School Occupied; Kerrey, Cops on Premises

    Last night a group of students from the New School (and from other local schools, in solidarity) "reclaimed the cafeteria at the New School University as an autonomous student center." (Amor y Resistencia has photos.) Their grievances are several: mainly they seem to be protesting the impending stat ... More >>

    New School Update: Occupation Still On

    New School in Exile, the blog of the occupying forces at the troubled institution, just updated that professor Jim Miller is "for our side." Miller is co-chair of the faculty senate that gave New School President Bob Kerrey a vote of no confidence last week. Also, "We have learned that there are 2 ... More >>

    Bob Kerrey's Anti-War Commencement

    When he took over as president of the New School in early 2001, Bob Kerrey must have installed a lightning rod in his office on West 12th Street. First there was trouble with faculty unions. Then came revelations about the killing of civilians during a raid in Vietnam. After his star turn as the Mos ... More >>

    Bob Kerrey's Buzz Cut

    The news that Bob Kerrey is considering a run for mayor has rocked the New York political world like a freak 70-foot wave. But waves pass, and this one is starting to look more like a swell than a tsunami. As the strategist for one Democrat already in the race told me Monday, "Kerrey is just noise ... More >>

    Bob Kerrey Is Very Angry

    If he makes good on his "I'm just crazy enough to do this" threat, Bob Kerrey wouldn't be the first famous guy to run for mayor of New York. Teddy Roosevelt did. So did one of the founders of The Village Voice, Norman Mailer. They both lost. If Kerrey decides to run, or even if he just takes a few ... More >>
