Good Tuesday afternoon in New York City, where voters are still trickling into polling places to cast ballots in the gubernatorial and Assembly primaries. Here's what else is happening:

  • Mayor Eric Adams again lauded the NYPD's arrest of a famous subway saxophone player in the 34th Street-Herald Square station, insisting that the musician — who performs alongside a collection of dancing robotic cats — was blocking pedestrian traffic.
  • The race for civil court judge in Lower Manhattan took a spicy turn last night when one candidate posted flyers around the East Village slamming candidate David Fraiden for being a fire-breather and juggler who attended clown school. (Fraiden, for his part, is proud of his clowning background.)
  • Around 5 a.m. this morning, the NYPD had to break up a fight in a Carnival Cruise ship nightclub as the boat was crossing under the Verrazzano Bridge. Authorities are now trying to sort out which jurisdiction would handle any discipline.
  • Ghislaine Maxwell has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for her role in Jeffrey Esptein's sex trafficking ring.
  • Grub Street has a lil' profile of New York Nico's band of mostly Italian-American food influencers.
  • Howard Stern said he's thinking about a run for president now that the Supreme Court has overturned Roe, a decision he doesn't agree with.
  • Pirates have raided oil rigs owned by the Mexican government twice in the past month.
  • The new trend among millennials who don't want to do traditional wedding stuff is to give guests small doses of mushrooms and other psychedelic drugs.
  • It seems the 2,000-ish people who watched Alec Baldwin interview Woody Allen on Instagram Live saw them talk about a bunch of nothing — and saw Allen's team help him get his phone to work.
