Today's Big Stories

1. New Yorkers gather to watch the partial solar eclipse

New Yorkers and out-of-town visitors gathered across the city this afternoon to take in the partial solar eclipse. 

Watch parties were held at sites throughout the five boroughs, including at the American Museum of Natural History. The eclipse was first visible in New York City around 2:20 p.m. The peak of the eclipse was around 3:20 p.m.

2. New York appeals judge rejects Trump’s request to delay his April 15 hush money trial

A New York appeals court judge today rejected Donald Trump's bid to delay his April 15 hush money criminal trial while he fights to move the case out of Manhattan — foiling the former president’s latest attempt to put off the historic trial.

Justice Lizbeth González of the state’s mid-level appeals court made her ruling after an emergency hearing where Trump's lawyers asked to postpone the trial indefinitely while they seek a change of venue. Trump was seeking an emergency stay, a court order that would prevent the trial from starting on time.

3. Pay-by-plate parking meters to replace paper receipts in NYC

As Earth Day approaches, the city’s Department of Transportation knows it’s not getting every car off the street, but it is taking another long-term approach to helping the environment with new pay-by-plate parking meters.

The new parking meters will work like the Park NYC app, with plate and payment information going to traffic agents' handheld devices.

4. New York lawmakers pass another state budget extender through Thursday

Another state budget extender was passed today by the New York state Senate to keep the government running through Thursday, but will fund pay for state employees through next Tuesday.

The state Assembly approved the measure over the weekend. Gov. Kathy Hochul signed it into law this afternoon.

5. First on NY1: Latimer releases first TV ad in primary bid against Bowman

Westchester County Executive George Latimer is releasing the first TV ad of his primary bid to unseat progressive Rep. Jamaal Bowman, touting “real progressive results” from his years in county government.

The 30-second spot, which is the first part of a seven-figure ad buy on cable and digital, was shared exclusively with NY1's Kevin Frey ahead of its Tuesday rollout.

6. Actor Jonathan Majors sentenced to probation, avoiding jail time for assaulting ex-girlfriend

Actor Jonathan Majors has been ordered to complete a yearlong counseling program but avoided jail time today for assaulting his ex-girlfriend in a high-profile case that derailed the once-promising star’s career.

The 34-year-old star of “Creed III” and other films had faced up to a year behind bars after he was convicted of misdemeanor assault by a Manhattan jury in December.

7. New York Libertarian Party launches petition drive to get on the presidential ballot

The New York state Libertarian Party is gearing up to get their presidential candidate on the ballot in the Empire State. Due to new ballot access provisions, the Libertarians and other parties without automatic ballot access will need to collect 45,000 signatures between April 16 and May 28 to get their party on the ballot.

The Libertarian Party has placed a candidate on the ballot for president in New York every cycle since 1976 with their best performance on their own line coming in 2020 with Jo Jorgenson receiving over 60,000 votes.
