AFTER PARIS NYC REACHES OUT TO MUSLIMS -- AP's Jonathan Lemire reports: In the aftermath of last month's terror attacks in Paris, New York City officials have bolstered security and quietly stepped up outreach efforts to Muslim residents, trying to calm fears of possible hate-filled retaliation while trying to extend government services to a community that often has felt neglected. The city has increased its presence in Muslim neighborhoods, sending staffers to visit mosques and build better relationships with imams and worshippers. Police officials have briefed community leaders on new counterterrorism procedures.
Happening today -- Mayor Bill de Blasio [will] deliver a speech at an Islamic community center, reaffirming that the city's 800,000 Muslims have the same rights as all New Yorkers while pledging protection from any hate crimes, the mayor's aides told The Associated Press on Thursday. De Blasio's speech at the Jamaica Muslim Center, or Masjid Al-Mamoor in Queens, is the most high-profile move the administration has made to calm jittery Muslims since the Nov. 13 attacks that killed at least 129 people in Paris, and this week's slaying of 14 people in San Bernardino, California. But it's far from the only step the administration has taken to reach out to Muslims, some of whom deeply feared discrimination after 9/11.
Teams from the mayor's office and city council have spent time at mosques and community centers, hoping to improve relations with imams who could also advocate city services, such as free pre-kindergarten and municipal identification cards, that would improve some Muslims' level of civic engagement and potentially ward off alienation. "This is a community that has not always had the best relationship with city government," said Marco Carrion, head of the mayor's community affairs unit. "Some have never seen a helpful government and welcomed us with open arms. But other times we face real resistance and mistrust." READ MORE HERE: http://apne.ws/1YMTYA9
WAKE-UP SCOOP: Gov. Andrew Cuomo has held several meetings this week at his midtown Manhattan office with nonprofit groups and top members of his administration to discuss the city's ongoing homeless crisis, sources familiar with the talks told POLITICO New York's Laura Nahmias. The governor held one meeting on Monday with nonprofit groups that handle outreach efforts for the homeless and seemed particularly taken with the idea of tackling street homelessness, those familiar with the gathering said. The administration also held meetings on Wednesday and Thursday with the nonprofit groups to discuss youth homelessness, homeless victims of domestic violence and homeless veterans. Another meeting is planned for Friday morning at the governor's office on Third Avenue to discuss mental health and substance abuse among the homeless, the sources said. Sources familiar with the meetings said administration officials have been asking representatives from the nonprofit groups what they want to see done to address the homeless problem. The officials have emphasized the state's limited financial resources and have asked for suggestions on how regulatory changes could help ease the crisis. http://politi.co/1XE9cu4
-- This is occurring after a Tuesday night meeting between Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, which was described by the New York Post as repairing relations between the two men. http://bit.ly/1IGZWcE
-- Sources told the Wall Street Journal that the meeting wasn't fruitful. Aides disputed that: "There were only four people at the dinner on Tuesday, and we are the only ones with knowledge of the discussions that night," said Emma Wolfe, a top aide to Mr. de Blasio, and Melissa DeRosa, a top aide to Mr. Cuomo. "The company and conversation was constructive-the fish, however, was dry." http://on.wsj.com/1XEcldp
-- After the dinner, the state and city reached an agreement about tax-exempt housing bonds, and on Thursday the two joined Attorney General Eric Schneiderman in announcing the results of a crackdown on 128 landlords receiving 421-a tax breaks without offering the required rent-stabilized leases. http://nydn.us/1IH0yPo
TIPS, BY NEIGHBORHOOD -- "What your neighborhood says about how you tip for takeout," by Post's Jennifer Gould Keil: "The more New Yorkers pay in rent, the less they tip for their takeout food, according to a new study from the Web sites StreetEasy and Seamless. Residents of more affordable areas of the city, such as Bushwick, Sunset Park and Greenpoint in Brooklyn, regularly tip more than 15 percent - which is higher than those in posh neighborhoods, such as Manhattan's Carnegie Hill, where residents shell out an average of 12.2 percent for tips. The study found 17 of the 20 worst-tipping neighborhoods were in Manhattan, while middle-class areas Astoria and Ridgewood in Queens ranked in the top 10." http://bit.ly/1SC69MG

SILVER'S CAREER A TRAJECTORY OF CORRUPTION - Wayne Barrett for City & State: "The poetic irony of the Silver verdict was that a jury of mostly blacks and Latinos, and mostly women, convicted a man with such an ignominious history on race and harassment issues. Of all of Silver's crimes, the most disturbing was his abuse of cancer research funding, steering it to a doctor who sent him lucrative asbestos referrals. Everyone has felt cancer in their lives - afflicting family, friends or themselves. Silver's brother succumbed to the disease shortly before the speaker started trading precious funding for millions in his bank account. Every dollar spent on research to fight cancer should be awarded on the comparative merits of the research, carefully vetted by medical experts. Silver's half-million in grants were delivered in a dark alley, a silo of secrecy, payoffs without conscience. The Assembly's Democratic conference is filled with the high-minded, progressives on almost every big-picture social issue. But, faced with the greatest moral test of their lives, they looked away for years, shrugged, wrestled to find fine lines, and prospered from their silence, too ambitious or fearful to take on the elephant in their conference, a leader who advertised his conflicts, if not his criminality." http://bit.ly/1PBJcvk
-- Silver filed for his pension on Tuesday, and could be eligible to receive over $98,000 a year. http://on.rocne.ws/1QX9zf5

MAKING IT OFFICIAL -- Speaker suggests an increase in pay, declines to say how much -- POLITICO New York's Gloria Pazmino: City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito made an official pitch on Thursday asking the city's Quadrennial Advisory Commission to approve raises for the council, but declined to specify how much the raises should be. In a letter submitted to the commission, Mark-Viverito cites the rising cost of living in the city, saying member salaries are no longer on par with private and public sector jobs with similar duties and obligations. The speaker also argues the 51-member body has become "more productive" and its work "more complex" over the last ten years - the last time the members received a raise.
"It is critical that Council Member compensation accurately reflect the essential nature of their service, as well as the economic realities of living in the City; not just for the benefit of current Council Members but so the institution can continue to attract future legislators who are the very best our City has to offer," Mark-Viverito writes. "I therefore believe it is clear that Council Member salaries should be increased." The Quadrennial Advisory Commission, a three-member panel, was convened by Mayor Bill de Blasio in September to study whether the city's elected officials deserve pay raises.
