An Amtrak train bound for Washington, D.C., had a minor derailment as it was leaving New York's Penn Station at the height of Friday's morning rush, bumping an NJ Transit train and shattering windows but causing no serious injuries, authorities said.

An architecture studio has presented a striking U-shaped building for midtown Manhattan. Oiio Studio, based in New York City and Greece, has posted renderings of the building, dubbed “The Big Bend,” to its website. “What if we substituted height with length?” the tongue-in-cheek post reads. Oiio introduces the building as a reaction to the city's developers building further upwards in the pursuit of prestige. There’s little chance such a building will come to fruition, and architects at the studio are “well-known for designing subversive proposals to stir discourse among the profession,” according to Architizer. Still, renderings of the building offer an interesting take on how developers may follow lofty buildings like 432 Park Ave. and 111 W. 57th St. as they look to set new records and bring attention to their ambitious, if impractical, projects.

President Donald Trump said "we'll see what happens" Friday morning as the Republican health care overhaul cleared a procedural hurdle on the way to a climactic vote on the bill later in the day. Republicans were plunging ahead to repeal and replace Obamacare despite uncertainty over whether they had the votes to prevail in what loomed as a monumental gamble for Trump and his GOP allies in Congress. Debate began hours after White House officials told fractious GOP lawmakers at a Thursday night Capitol meeting that Trump was finished negotiating with GOP holdouts and would move on to the rest of his agenda, win or lose. "We'll see what happens," Trump said in response to a reporter's question about what happens if the vote on the Republican-backed health care bill fails in the House. Asked if House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., should remain as speaker if the bill fails, Trump said, "Yes."
Is today the day? Some think so, but the zoo isn't so sure.
