President Donald Trump is a lifelong New Yorker, albeit not a typical one. He's partied at Studio 54 and he has buildings emblazoned with his name, but New York's hardly loved him back, despite his being one of the city's most familiar faces.

Trump recently filed to change his residency from New York to Florida—even referring to Trump Tower as his former home. After the story broke, the President addressed the move on his Twitter account.

Trump's decision to revoke the Obama-era DACA policy, thousands of activists rallied in Manhattan's Foley Square and marched across the Brooklyn Bridge.

Dr. Ricardo Cruciani was arrested on rape charges in New York City on Tuesday and pled guilty to groping women at a Philadelphia clinic for years in November 2017. The past charges for the neurologist include multiple counts of sexual abuse. According to Philadelphia Magazine, Cruciani "fondled and groped women under his care," "tried to forcibly kiss a woman in his office," "tried to force a woman to touch his penis," and would also masturbate in front of patients. In November 2017, Cruciani pled guilty in Philadelphia Municipal Court to misdemeanor counts of sexually predatory behavior, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. He was sentenced to seven years probation and had to register as a sex offender.

According to NJ.com, his latest arrest for rape was spurred by a former patient, Hillary Tullin, 45. Tullin called a sexual abuse hotline last year, alleging that Cruciani repeatedly abused her between 2005 and 2012. Cruciani previously worked at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City.
