Mayor's leadership after 9/11 could make him president

He put the bite back in the rotting Big Apple, cracking down on crime, cleaning up decaying neighbourhoods and putting the unemployed to work. Then came September 11 and, overnight, New York's mayor was rechristened as America's mayor.

Is New York's Mr Fixit ready to run for the White House?

Fishy business

The beloved Fulton Fish Market stinks. Its decrepit premises in Lower Manhattan, where it has been since 1822, are largely open to the elements. So the city's decision to shift it to a massive new edifice in the Bronx was supposed to reduce the stench on the streets. But another kind of odour - just as tough on the nostrils - is now delaying the move.

Aliens invade New York

Republicans have rarely shown any great affection for New York. Former president Gerald Ford's attitude was summarised in the famous newspaper headline, 'Ford To City: Drop Dead', in the 1970s.

Giuliani drama may herald new role

It is being billed as 'Hamlet on the Hudson'. The sudden tortured sensitivity from New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani - formerly seen as one of America's toughest big-city politicians - is now the talk of the nation.

Cost of crime-fighting

As far as civil disobedience goes, the daily scene outside the New York City police department's headquarters has the choreographed quality of a Jackie Chan fight sequence.

Protesters, most of them black and many well-known local figures, virtually line up with their arms outstretched to be handcuffed.
