NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Manhattan’s Upper East Side is known for its luxury apartments, but one neighborhood residence there is so spacious, it has been described as a “palace in the sky.” A gracious lifestyle has long been associated with the UES and the sweeping, luxurious home CBS2’s Natalie Duddridge recently toured for this week’s Living Large is a perfect example of that. Noble Black of Douglas Elliman took Duddridge to the penthouse at 170 E. 87th St., a spectacular triplex space where there are three levels of fantastic entertaining, living, dining and family areas. “It is about 7,000 square foot interior and you’ve got about 3,000 exterior,” Black said.

The Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, has issued a thinly veiled threat that Turkey could release jailed Islamic State fighters and send them to Europe, a day after the country began its controversial policy of deporting foreign jihadis in its custody. “You should revise your stance toward Turkey, which at the moment holds so many Isis members in prison and at the same time controls those in Syria,” Erdoğan told European countries in remarks to reporters in Ankara on Tuesday. “These gates will open and these Isis members who have started to be sent to you will continue to be sent. Then you can take care of your own problem.” The Turkish leader’s remarks come in the wake of a fresh push to repatriate some of the 1,200 foreign Isis fighters in Turkish detention centres and 287 captured recently in Syria, including those who have been stripped of western citizenship in an attempt to prevent them returning home. Interior ministry spokesperson … [Read more...] about Turkey will free Isis fighters and send them to Europe, says Erdoğan

FILE PHOTO: The cover of the Financial Times newspaper is seen with other papers at a news stand in New York U.S., November 9, 2016. REUTERS/Shannon Stapleton Barber said on Tuesday he would leave in January after 14 years as editor and 34 years at the Nikkei-owned newspaper, which had one million paying readers in 2019, with digital subscribers accounting for more than 75% of total circulation.
