On January 23rd, West 13th Street residents were amazed to find out that one of their neighbors, Charles McGonical, was not only a former Special Agent in Charge of the FBI New York Counterintelligence Division, but was also indicted and arrested for conspiring to commit money laundering and money laundering at the behest of a Russian oligarch who had been designated as a threat to national security. Since his arrest it has been rumored that he was the one who leaked the fact that the FBI had reopened an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails just before the 2016 election. His leak pushed FBI Director Comey into the position of having to confirm the investigation.

- Corcoran’s First Annual West Village Charity Dog WalkA while back I wrote a column about a fun day coming to the West Village for dogs. (Also, cats but dogs are the main focus as cats cannot really be walked on leashes.) This event, “Uniquely Dogs,” will raise money for underprivileged pets, primarily dogs. So, I want to bring you up to speed and let you know what the event will look like and how it will be run.
