Gov. Christie's Right Back in Campaign Mode

Wednesday, November 06, 2013

Fresh off his 20-plus point win in Tuesday's election, many say Governor Chris Christie is right back in campaign mode — this time, for a run for the White House in 2016. Maggie Haberman, senior political writer for Politico, said the Republican is very good at capturing and leveraging national media attention.

"There is no question that he is extremely good about using the bully pulpit that he has, he's right next to the New York media market, and he is seen as a sort of quote-unquote sensible Republican by the press, that seems to work in his favor," she said.

Renderings of St. Nicholas Church Released

Thursday, October 31, 2013

For the first time since its destruction in the collapse of the twin towers on Sept. 11, 2001, the public is seeing images of what the rebuilt Greek Orthodox Church, St. Nicholas, will look like — and to some, it will look like a mosque. The New York Times' David Dunlap wrote about the design in Thursday's paper.

"The architect, Santiago Calatrava, has drawn for his design very heavily on traditional Byzantine influences," he said to WNYC's Amy Eddings. "It is a cubic building with a shallow dome on top of it, a ribbed dome at that, and alternating bands of stone, alternating colors at the corners of the drum of the dome."

Dunlap compares it to the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul.
