Owner Of Mysterious Silver Spaceship Tank Revealed To Be Brooklyn Dad, Of Course


(image) Last winter, our inbox was inundated with photos of a spaceship/tank hybrid with Midwest plates in the heart of Brooklyn. The vehicle—which was spotted all around Williamsburg, Fort Greene, Bushwick and Prospect Heights—continued to stalk the borough over recent months. Was it a Burning Man structure?

After half a year without any answers, we finally know the identity of the vehicle's owner: it's a random dad. [ more › ]

Forecast: Steamy, Sunny Skies Have Returned


(image) We've got an oddity on tap for today. For the first time in more than two weeks it is going to warm into the upper 80s, and perhaps even hit 90 this afternoon. The warm weather is coming on the heels of a cold front passing through the city last night. That seems contradictory, but the air at the leading edge of the arriving high pressure is sinking from above and when air sinks it gets compressed and heats up. So, expect lots of sun, highs ranging from near 90 west of the city to the mid 80s east of us, and humidity steadily dropping through the day. Tomorrow won't be nearly as warm, the high will be in the lower 80s, but it will still be sunny. [ more › ]

Game Of Whoops: HBO Europe Accidentally Leaks Next Episode Of 'Game Of Thrones'


(image) HBO has been plagued with problems during what should have been a celebratory summer filled with dragons, incestuous romantic pairings and ratings bonanzas.

Watch Colbert's Post-Trump Presser Monologue, Rewritten 30 Minutes Before Airing

'They Didn't Just Go Away': Historian Talks About NYC's 1939 Nazi Rally


(image) In the aftermath of this weekend’s chaotic, deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, several commentators have identified the event as the largest gathering of American White Nationalists and neo-Nazis in decades. But as Jelani Cobb and others have pointed out, the event was “not the first time this country has witnessed the mass mobilization of Nazis.” From George Lincoln Rockwell’s American Nazi Party to the attempted neo-Nazi march in Skokie, the vision put forth by Hitler has survived in pockets across the United States long after the Third Reich crumbled.
