“Paper or plastic? Either way you answer, it could soon...



"Paper or plastic? Either way you answer, it could soon cost you 5 cents in New York City, where the city council is set to vote today on a fee for single-use paper and plastic bags. Under the proposed bill, retail, grocery and convenience stores, as well as some street vendors, would be required to charge a nickel a bag. The merchants, not the city, would pocket the money. Liquor stores, food carts selling prepared food, and restaurants packaging takeout orders would be exempt, as would customers paying with food stamps. On average, New Yorkers throw out 20 bags a person every week. That's 9.37 billion bags a year. For the city, that means about $12.5 million spent annually to dispose plastic and paper bags. Last week in Queens, @bryanthomasphoto captured one of the many plastic bags that had yet to make it to the garbage heap. #nytoday" By nytimes on Instagram.

"Amariyanna Copeny waved to President @barackobama this afternoon as he made a statement in Flint, Michigan. The president traveled to Flint after an appeal from the 8-year-old, who is known among many as Little Miss Flint. She asked to meet with him when she went to Washington for a Flint hearing on Capitol Hill in March. "I've come here to tell you that I've got your back, that we're paying attention," @barackobama told a crowd today. Our staff photographer @nytmills traveled to #Flint to document @barackobama's visit to Flint, which was his first since the water crisis began." By nytimes on Instagram.

"A reflection of a rowhouse in Sharswood, a neighborhood in north central Philadelphia that has some of the city's worst rates of poverty, crime and violence. The city's housing authority is taking a new approach to neighborhood revitalization. It plans to bring in shops, offices and schools, along with housing, in an ambitious program to breathe new life into a struggling community. The goal is to address the underlying causes of urban distress. The $500 million project, just 2 and a half miles from downtown, is supposed to recreate a middle-class community that never recovered after rioting in the 1960s, agency officials say. @markmakela took this #puddlegram while on assignment in Philadelphia."

"Believe it or not, @jason_bateman has been on our screens for 35 years. Starting out on TV shows like "Silver Spoons," he became the rare child star to forge a successful adult career. These days, @jason_bateman, now 47, is probably best known as Michael Bluth on "Arrested Development." But he has also starred in and directed films. In "The Family Fang," his 2nd directorial effort, he and Nicole Kidman play siblings, the adult children of a quirky performance artist couple who enlisted their children in their strange and sometimes shocking work. @benjaminnorman photographed @jason_bateman at the @sohograndhotel in New York."

"@nytimes photographer @joshhaner took this #aerial photo of Isle de Jean Charles, Louisiana, in April. Because of the impacts of #climatechange, a $48 million federal grant has been allocated to resettle the island's residents. The resettlement plan is one of the first programs of its kind in the world, a test to see if it's possible to respond to climate change without tearing communities apart. The island's residents are to be resettled to dryer land and a community that currently doesn't exist. But even a plan like this — which would move only about 60 people — has been hard to pull off. Many people simply don't want to go. Whether to leave is only the first of the hard questions: Where does everyone go? What claim do they have to what is left behind? We'll be sharing more photos by @joshhaner later this week. Visit the link in our profile to read about the first American #climaterefugees." By nytimes on Instagram.

""As an artist, I'm intrigued by the juxtaposition of strength and power with beauty and fragility," photographer @neillatham told the #LensBlog. His photos of racehorses, like Kitten's Joy, pictured here, are shot at rare proximity and at all hours. @neillatham slept in the groom dorms at Saratoga Race Course and camped in a tent in Kentucky. The rare proximity to famous horses let him capture the behavioral and attitudinal flourishes of his subjects, including their mix of pride and arrogance. His goal, in the end, was to capture "pure essence." Photos from @neillatham's "American Thoroughbred" will be on display at @stevenkashergallery in New York beginning on June 9.

"@berniesanders rebounded to win the Democratic primary in Indiana tonight, providing a bright spot for his campaign even as @hillaryclinton sharpens her message for the general election. The state offered a test of whether @hillaryclinton could win over some of the white, working-class voters who have been drawn to @berniesanders. The outcome won't significantly narrow his delegate gap with @hillaryclinton, but it does provide a lift for him during a difficult period.

"The Republican presidential candidate @cruzforpresident ended his campaign tonight, his loss in Indiana extinguishing any chance of denying @realdonaldtrump the nomination. "Together we left it all on the field in Indiana," @cruzforpresident told supporters in Indianapolis as cries of "Nooo!" rained from the crowd. "We gave it everything we've got. But the voters chose another path." To dismiss #TedCruz as an also-ran would diminish his unlikely feat in outlasting nearly every rival: His calls for conservative purity have been, for better or worse, the most consistent message in the field, his rage against the "Washington cartel" a signal of the nation's ever-dimming view of its leaders. @cruzforpresident had pinned his hopes on Indiana, but @realdonaldtrump held a strong polling lead in the state. @ericthayer photographed @cruzforpresident with his father, Rafael, and wife, Heidi.

"@hamiltonmusical made history today, earning 16 @thetonyawards nominations, more than any show in #Broadway history. The #hiphop musical is already a sold-out smash hit, a rare piece of theater that crossed over into pop culture. Today, nominators deemed the show prize-worthy in every category: acting, writing, directing, dance, music and design. "It's unbelievable — it's absolutely humbling and incredible," said Lin-Manuel Miranda, the show's 36-year-old creator and star. @nytimes photographer Sara Krulwich took this photo of Anthony Ramos, left, with Lin-Manuel, Daveed Diggs and Okieriete Onaodowan during a performance in July. Sara, who covers theater for @nytimes, has been lucky enough to photograph the play twice — once on Broadway and once at its earlier home, @publictheaterny. #Hamiltonmusical" By nytimes on Instagram.

"This has been a great year for crawfish — a result of an exceptionally wet and mild winter, according to the owners of Hawk's, a restaurant near Rayne, Louisiana. The boiled crawfish at Hawk's are cooked in water seasoned with both cayenne and a commercial Chinese pepper mix. But first, they undergo a 36- to 48-hour cleansing process that makes them expel the bitter-tasting waste material in their gastrointestinal tracts. @alphabeach took this photo of 2 individual servings of #crawfish (which are sometimes called mud bugs) while on assignment for @nytfood."

"3-year-old Amiya Brunet sat on the bridge the leads to her family's home on Isle de Jean Charles, in Louisiana. During storms, the house fills with up to a foot of mud. Amiya's parents, Keith Brunet and Keisha McGehee, want to leave. Keith, who has worked as an oysterman, a fisherman and a tugboat captain, grew up on the island. "It's hard to move when you've lived here all your life, but I've got to look to my kids' future," he said. Earlier this year, @hudgov announced a $48 million grant for Isle de Jean Charles — the first allocation of federal tax dollars to move an entire community that is struggling with the impacts of #climatechange. But unlike Amiya's family, many of the island's residents don't want to leave. Attachment runs deep. Visit the link in our profile to read the full story. We'll be sharing more photos by @nytimes photographer @joshhaner later this week." By nytimes on Instagram.

"Celebrities walked a red (or red-ish) carpet at #MetGala2016, where @nytimes staff photographer @damonwinter was on assignment tonight for @nytimesfashion. The model @louiseparker, whose feet are pictured here, was an early arrival. Officially, the #MetGala is the @metmuseum's Costume Institute Benefit, a #blacktie extravaganza held the first Monday in May. Unofficially, tonight's festivities have been called many things, including "the party of the year," "the Oscars of the East Coast" and, somewhat pointedly, "an ATM for the Met," by the publicist Paul Wilmot.

""It's always a hustle," @margotrobbie said. "I thought it would be a mountain, where you get to the top, and then it's like: 'Wheeee! It's so easy after this.'" Instead, the 25-year-old actress told @nytimes: "Any time I get near the top, I'm like, 'There's another mountain!' The hustle continues." @margotrobbie's journey to stardom began at roughly the moment that a worldwide audience discovered her in "The Wolf of Wall Street." Her formidable performance (and Noo Yawk dialect) became her calling card. This summer, she will star in 2 franchise movies. First, she'll play a self-reliant and decidedly un-dainty Jane in @legendoftarzan, which opens July 1. Then, on August 5, she'll star in @suicidesquadmovie, based on the @dccomics series, as Harley Quinn, a cracked-up criminal psychologist who wields a baseball bat and a Brooklyn accent with equal ferocity. The photographer @emilyberl took this portrait of @margotrobbie at a home in the Hollywood Hills." By nytimes on Instagram.
