A new Web site reveals public pensions paid to New York state retirees, including the $261,000 paid annually to a former teacher. He’s among the almost 1,400 retirees pulling down at least $100,000 a year.

Two-thirds of the retirees in that group are retired police and firefighters.

The Empire Center for New York State Policy Web site also shows former state Comptroller Alan Hevesi qualifies for a $105,000 pension. The Democrat resigned in 2006 after pleading guilty to using state workers as chauffeurs and companions for his wife.

It also includes former Senate Majority Leader Joseph Bruno, a Republican who’s in line for a $96,000 pension. He retired before being convicted in a public corruption case earlier this year.
