Real-life scandals of NYC’s ‘Gilded Age’ more shocking than any HBO show

The Gilded Age,” premiering Monday at 9 p.m. EST, chronicles the lifestyles of the rich and famous in Manhattan during the late 1800s — with ostentatious displays of wealth, ridiculous parties and heaps of tabloid-worthy gossip and scandal.Created by Julian Fellowes, the man behind “Downton Abbey,” the series also highlights the deep-rooted rivalries and prejudices among NYC high society (and the social climbers desperate to get a leg up).Here, The Post looks at some of the wildest stories of the real Gilded Age.To this day, the creations of Gilded Age architect Stanford White define New York City: the Washington Square Arch, Judson Memorial Church and the Players Club, among many other wonders.But it was his 1906 murder, and the shocking reason behind it, that really rocked the city.White, 52, had attended the premiere of the musical “Mam’Zelle Champagne” at the original Madison Square Garden, which he also designed.

'Shameful' viral photo of teacher taping mask to schoolboy's face sparks outcry
US school teacher has sparked controversy after an image of her taping a face mask to a student went viral as it caused outrage online.The image appear to show a woman taping a black face mask, required in certain schools due to coronavirus, onto a male student as he sits at his desk with a laptop.The incident took place at a school in the North Penn School District in Pennsylvania but it is unknown who or when the photo was taken.A local group called North Penn Stronger Together shared the photo on Facebook, and revealed the incident happened at Pennfield Middle School.The group has asked parents to contact the administration and raise the incident at the upcoming board meeting.In the post, they said: “Pro-mask or anti-mask, I hope we can all agree that taping masks to children’s faces crosses the LINE. This was not a joke for the child or the parents.“I am calling on the North Penn Neighbours for Progress and North Penn School District to address this photo of a Pennfield Middle school co-teacher taping a mask to a child’s face to district parents and families ASAP.”The response online to the incident has forced North Penn School District to respond to concerns and apologise in a statement.The North Penn School District said: “An image taken in one of our classrooms last week and circulating on social media does not represent the universal values that the North Penn School District strives to instil in both our students and staff.“After an immediate investigation, it was determined that while the incident was isolated and no malice was intended, the actions of the teacher were entirely inappropriate and unacceptable, no matter the context.
