    Hundreds of New Yorkers came together to protest hate messages and offensive symbols Sunday at a Brooklyn Heights park that is named after a late Beastie Boys star. 

    Comptroller Scott Stringer, New York Sen. Daniel Squadron and Beastie Boys member Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz were among the large crowd who flooded Adam Yauch Park to spread messages of love and unity days after playground equipment was defaced with two swastikas and a pro-Trump message. 

    "Offensive symbols and discrimination have no place in our city," Stringer said. "Especially in our playgrounds and in front of our kids."

    Adam "MCA" Yauch was Jewish. The Beastie Boys star died from cancer in 2012.

    Public Advocate Letitia James joined protesters in a rendition of "This Land is Your Land" as others carried signs with slogans like "We Gotta Fight for Our Rights" and "Love Wins." Two men played snare drums to the tune of the song.

    Visitors laid flowers near the park entrance as a peace offering in an effort to put messages of hate to rest. The metal locomotive jungle gym showed no trace of the offensive graffiti as kids played on the park's recreational equipment.

    Horovitz was upset that someone defaced the playground dedicated to his late friend, but was glad to see so many come together to protest against the disrespectful actions.

    "Everybody that heard about this came out," he said, smiling. "We got old friends and new friends."

    Among those old friends was actor Ben Stiller, who said the singular event is representative of a larger wave of hate crimes that have taken place in recent times. 

    "It's important for us to stand up and say it's not all right," he said. "It's important for the president-elect to say it's not okay, too."

    Stiller called on President-elect Donald Trump to take a stand against the acts of intimidation happening across the country.

    Amid reports of a spike in acts of hate or intimidation, Trump said in a Nov. 13 interview on CBS' "60 Minutes" that he did not hear about the violence and harassment in his name or in some cases directed at his supporters, other than "one or two instances." 

    He added: "I am so saddened to hear that. And I say, 'Stop it.' If it -- if it helps. I will say this, and I will say right to the cameras: 'Stop it.'"  

    The Southern Poverty Law Center said that there were 701 hateful incidents of harassment reported around the country in the week since the presidential election, though not all reports have been verified. About 65 percent of the incidents were from the first three days following the election, and there has been a steady drop-off since, the hate-tracking group said.  

    The Sunday afternoon rally in Brooklyn Heights is one of several that have taken place throughout the city protesting hate speech and offensive symbols. According to the NYPD, police are investigating 31 percent more hate crimes this year compared to 2015.

    In midtown Sunday, protesters gathered at the Grand Hyatt hotel to await President-elect Donald Trump’s newly appointed Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, who was expected to attend a gala there. Some of those rallying said Bannon is an anti-Semite.

  • 11/21/16--05:41: Group Protests Bannon in NYC

  • Protesters gathered outside a hotel in midtown Manhattan on Sunday night as they awaited President-elect Donald Trump’s newly appointed Chief Strategist Steve Bannon.

    The group blocked access to the entrance of the Grand Hyatt hotel, where Bannon was expected to attend the 2016 Zionist Organization of America's annual gala. It’s unclear if he ever showed up.

    The group IfNotNow helped organize the protest and many in the crowd were young and Jewish. On social media the group boasted that up to "700 Jews" prevented Bannon from speaking at the gala.

    They argued that Bannon is an anti-Semite — a charge that the Trump transition team has repeatedly denied.

    Bannon, 62, is one of Trump’s most controversial hires. He joined Trump's campaign as CEO in August after serving as the head of Breitbart News — a far-right outlet that is one of Trump's biggest backers.

    Bannon, onetime Breitbart News chief, worked for Goldman Sachs, then started his own media-focused boutique investment banking firm. After selling the business, he became a film producer, which introduced him to conservative publisher Andrew Breitbart and author Peter Schweizer. Bannon led the Breitbart website, which has been widely condemned as racist, sexist and anti-Semitic.

    But the Anti-Defamation League, while addressing Breitbart's inflammatory stance under Bannon's guidance, observed that Bannon has never made any anti-Semitic remarks.

    "While there is a long fact pattern of evidence that Breitbart served as a platform for a wide range of bigotry and there is some controversy related to statements from Mr. Bannon’s divorce proceedings in 2007, we are not aware of any anti-Semitic statements made by Bannon himself," the organization said in a statement.

    Bannon's ex-wife claimed in a 2007 divorce filing, though, that he made three separate anti-Semitic comments when they fought over which private school to send their kids nearly a decade ago in Los Angeles, NBC News reported. Bannon has denied the allegation.

    Jewish groups and a long list of Democratic leaders have denounced Bannon's hiring and called on Trump to reconsider.

    Trump Tower was also the scene of a rally on Sunday. Supporters of Trump held signs of approval for the president-elect. At one point they came face-to-face with a large group of anti-Trump demonstrators. Police used barricades to keep the peace. 

    On Sunday, Trump met with more than a dozen potential cabinate appointees at his western New Jersey golf club, Trump National Golf Club.

    “Great people coming, you’ll see,” Trump said.

    Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence met with Rudy Giuliani and Gov. Chris Christie but made no announcements Sunday.

    Meetings will carry on at Trump Tower on Monday and Tuesday as Trump continues his transition into the White House.

    A man was arrested after disrupting a performance of the musical "Hamilton" in Chicago on Saturday night, reportedly screaming obscenities in support of President-elect Donald Trump.

    John Palmer, 56, was taken into custody around 9:30 p.m. at the PrivateBank Theatre, located at 18 W. Monroe St. in the city's Loop, according to police.

    Palmer, of the 100 block of E. Illinois St. in Chicago, began "causing a disturbance" and was asked to leave by the theatre's staff, authorities said. He refused and was detained by security until officers arrived and placed him under arrest.

    Palmer was charged with one misdemeanor count of criminal trespass to land, Chicago police said.

    According to multiple reports, Palmer appeared intoxicated and began screaming things like, "Our side won! You lost! Get over it!" as well as several profanities.

    The incident was reportedly sparked by cheers at the line "Immigrants - we get the job done" in the song "Yorktown (The World Turned Upside Down)."

    Audience members left the auditorium to ask staff to remove Palmer, according to BroadwayWorld.com, who then struggled with security for "at least two numbers."

    Several audience members took to social media to describe the outburst, adding that Palmer was also threatening those around him.

    "This is why we train," actress Karen Olivo, who plays Angelica in the production, tweeted Sunday. "So when the obstacles come we conquer them with skill and precision."

    Broadway in Chicago did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    The incident came just one day after controversy surrounded Vice President-elect Mike Pence's attendance of "Hamilton" in New York City.

    Pence drew boos and some support from the audience as he walked to his seat before the show on Friday night. Following the performance, the cast addressed Pence directly in a statement for which Trump demanded an apology. 

    "We, sir, we are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us, our planet, our children, our parents, or defend us and uphold our unalienable rights, sir," actor Brandon Victor Dixon said, adding, "But we truly hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf of all of us.”

    Trump took issue with the speech on Twitter, claiming Pence was "harassed" and calling for the cast and producers to apologize "for their terrible behavior."

    Pence, however, said Sunday that he wasn't offended by the cast's speech, and said he would "leave it to others whether that was the appropriate venue to say it" when asked if he thought an apology was necessary.

    Clashes between protesters and authorities over the Dakota Access Pipeline escalated Sunday night after an estimated 400 people tried to breach a law enforcement barrier, NBC News reported.

    The sheriff's office described the clash as a "riot" prompted by "very aggressive" activists, while protesters said authorities used tear gas, rubber bullets and a water cannon in below-freezing temperatures.

    In a statement, the sheriff's office said tear gas and other "less than lethal means" were being used after protesters "engaged in organized tactical movement and attempted to flank and attack" a law enforcement line near a bridge. A protest organizer said they had removed a truck that had been on the bridge since Oct. 27 to gain access to North Dakota Highway 1806.

    The clash comes days after organizers held coordinated demonstrations across the country to protest a 1,170-mile oil pipeline that has generated the largest American Indian protest movement in modern history. Thousands of people have flocked to North Dakota, where the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe argues that the proposed pipeline could permanently contaminate its water source, the Missouri River.

    Over 2 million New Englanders are expected to travel over the Thanksgiving holiday, according to AAA projections.

    AAA projects that 48.7 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more over the holiday. AAA believes 2,175,000 of those travelers are from New England – which is a 2.4 percent increase from 2015.

    Relatively low gasoline costs and overall improvements in the economy contribute to the increase in travel. In Connecticut, the average cost of gas was about $2.30 Monday before the holiday, and had been falling for about two weeks.

    Driving is the most popular form of transportation for the Thanksgiving holiday, with 89 percent of travelers hopping in a car. AAA recommends drivers check the condition of their battery and tires before starting the trip – the motor club estimates it will respond to more than 370,000 calls for issues like dead batteries, flat tires and lockouts.

    Hillary Clinton may be fading from public view, but Bernie Sanders is staying firmly in the spotlight, and the progressive organizations and operatives who rallied around his presidential campaign feel like they are finally a force in the Democratic Party, NBC News reports.

    Sanders is now in the Democratic leadership in the Senate, while one of his allies is a front-runner to be the next chairman of the Democratic Party. The Vermont senator is also on a book tour, and everyone seems to want his opinion on the election, in part because he beat Clinton in many of the key Midwestern counties she lost to Donald Trump.

    Meanwhile, the digital firm that helped Sanders raise more than $200 million in small donations is reaching out to out-of-work Clinton staffers, and his network of progressive activists is gearing up to resist Trump's policies.

    "This is the political revolution. It's here," said Winnie Wong, an Occupy Wall Street activist who started the group People for Bernie. "What we know is that the Bernie Mafia feels confident and united."

    Andrew Luck and Ben Roethlisberger are set for a Thanksgiving night showdown as the above-average offenses and subpar defenses of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Indianapolis Colts meet indoors.

    Pittsburgh (5-5) is tied with the Baltimore Ravens atop the mediocre AFC North, while the Colts (5-5) are in striking distance of the Houston Texans in the AFC South.

    The Steelers game Sunday against the aimless Cleveland Browns came at just the right time to snap a four-game losing streak, but looked unconvincing in the process. Luck and the Colts, meanwhile, finally won back-to-back games this season with a win over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday thanks to a pair of early touchdown passes from Luck.

    Indianapolis will try to make it three in a row against a Steelers defense that, despite eight sacks on Sunday, has not given most quarterbacks a tough time this season.

    Roethlisberger has thrown for four touchdowns in three games since returning from an injury, but Pittsburgh struggled to finish drives Sunday against the Browns. The Steelers' only touchdown came after the Browns committed two penalties with no time left on the clock at the end of the first half.

    Indianapolis, meanwhile, was outscored 17-3 after scoring touchdowns on each of its first three drives.

    The game kicks off at 8:30 p.m. ET on NBC.

    Players to Watch:
    Pittsburgh running back Le’Veon Bell: Ran for 146 yards and a score Sunday, but maybe Pittsburgh just kept it simple against one of the most yielding run defenses in the NFL.

    Pittsburgh wide receiver Antonio Brown: Among the NFL receiving leaders with seven touchdown catches so far this season.

    Indianapolis linebacker Erik Walden: Leads the Colts with eight sacks and is the only significant pass-rush threat they pose.

    Indianapolis wide receiver Donte Moncrief: Has scored a touchdown in three straight games and has been targeted 21 times in those games, during which the Colts are 2-1.
