POLITICO New York Playbook, presented by Nuclear Matters: CUOMO nukes prison loaf -- AN ODD YEAR for residential New York real estate -- 'MICRO' trend

12/29/2015 07:05 AM EDT

By Azi Paybarah in Manhattan, Jimmy Vielkind in Albany, and Mike Allen in D.C., with Daniel Lippman

NO MORE CREEDMOOR IN HOMELESS PLAN - POLITICO New York's Laura Nahmias: Gov. Andrew Cuomo is no longer considering a plan to convert some of the partially empty facilities at the former Creedmoor Psychiatric Center into shelter for the homeless, a senior administration official told POLITICO New York Monday. That idea, which was reported by the New York Post a little more than a week ago, was among Cuomo's potential plans for a larger initiative to address homelessness that the governor plans to announce in his annual state of the state address next month. The idea would have involved converting some of Creedmoor's campus - a 315-acre plot in an isolated section of Middle Village in Queens - into shelter for the city's homeless. The state-owned campus at Creedmoor was once home to 7,000 mentally ill patients, but was deinstitutionalized along with other state mental institutions in the decades between the 1960s and 1980s, amid a wave of moving the mentally ill out of such large institutions.

HOW CUOMO AND DE BLASIO FIGHT ABOUT HOMELESSNESS - Brendan Cheney in POLITICO New York magazine: Mayor Bill de Blasio and Cuomo are not the first New York City mayor and New York State governor to openly feud over personal and political disagreements. But unless the two have a breakthrough soon, they could be the first in decades who fail to set aside those differences to jointly fund a housing program for homeless New Yorkers. De Blasio recently announced a new city plan for supportive housing - which includes on-site services like case workers, counseling, and mental health - saying he could no longer wait on the state, and he called on Cuomo to "step up" and contribute as well. ... Through a spokesperson, Cuomo said that "it's clear that the Mayor can't manage the homeless crisis" and said he plans to outline his own plans. Previous mayors have found common ground in supportive housing, including Cuomo's father, Mario Cuomo, who negotiated the first such deal with his erstwhile rival, Ed Koch.

DEEP DIVE -- "How Are You Enjoying the de Blasio Revolution?" by New York Magazine's Andrew Rice: "Experiments in a mayoralty focused on disrupting a city that may not want the disruption."

GRADING THE MAYOR -- Tom Allon for the Huffington Post: Allon, a 2013 mayoral candidate and president of City and State gave de Blasio a "B" on crime because, although crime is low, "murder is up this year for the first time in a while."

-- Extra credit: 2015 will be the third lowest year for murders (a few shy of 2014, and 2013, but far below the 419 in 2012). 2015 will also be the first time murders increased since 2010. NYPD:

New city regs pave way for teeny apts." -- News: "Boy, 4, wore pop's cop shield to gret him: BYE BYE DADDY: Son's touching farewell to a hero" -- Epoch Times: "NYC Hotels Pledge to Cut Greenhouse Gas Emisions" -- Hamodia: "Jewish Man Robbed and Viciously Assaulted on Ave. M" -- El Diario [translated]: Vacation rentals in check

FRONT PAGES -- NYT, 1-col. above the fold: "JURORS DECLINE CHARGES IN DEATH OF CLEVELAND BOY: SHOT BY POLICE OFFICER: Prosecutor Cites 'Perfect Storm of Human Errors' in Case" -- WSJNY, 2-col. above the fold: "Malloy Wants 21 As Minimum Age for Adult Trials"

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "Amazing. Very affecting" -- Mayor Bill de Blasio at the movies after seeing Spotlight.

LISTS DU JOUR -- "Go Out on a High Note: Ring in the New Year with one of these 10 concerts, whether your taste runs Future or They Might Be Giants," by New York's Sarah Caldwell

CHANGING CITY -- "NYC may fit more 'micro' apartments into housing picture," by AP's Jennifer Peltz: "The apartments in a new Manhattan building boast little balconies, tall ceilings, dishwashers and storage space. All in 360 square feet or less. It's micro-living in the nation's biggest city, and New Yorkers could be seeing more of it. Planning officials are proposing to end a limit on how small apartments can be, opening the door for more 'micro-apartments' that advocates see as affordable adaptations to a growing population of single people. Critics fear a turn back toward the city's tenement past and question whether less space will really mean less expensive."

--"City Installs First Free Wi-Fi Hotspot in East Village," by DNAinfo's John Santore: "The first high-speed public Wi-Fi hotspot kiosk was installed at the intersection of Third Avenue and 15th Street in the East Village Monday. The hardware behind the LinkNYC network will replace the city's former phone booths. Each kiosk installed by CityBridge LLC will provide Internet access in a 150-foot radius, as well as free domestic calls to the United States and a tablet computer for internet browsing."

CUOMO ELIMINATES PRISON LOAF - Times' Jesse McKinley: "Used by prison officials to punish unruly inmates, the Loaf is a heavy-on-the-starch, heavy-in-the-stomach bread-like substance that is much despised by advocates for more humane treatment for those being held in Special Housing Units - a.k.a. solitary confinement. Prisoners in such units in New York were given the Loaf when they'd misbehaved particularly badly - throwing food or feces, or refusing to obey guards' orders during mealtime - and had already been deprived of any other amenities ... One quick addendum: last week, I was invited to a Christmas party in Albany, where two colleagues from Politico New York had used the recipe I dug up for the Loaf to make cupcakes ... it was surprisingly sweet: grainy, brown and unpleasantly textured, but sweet nonetheless. I swallowed a tiny piece. And left the rest."

GREENING THE CITY -- "Major NYC hotels pledge to cut greenhouse gas emissions," by AP's Jonathan Lemire: "The Waldorf-Astoria New York, the Lotte New York Palace, the Pierre-A Taj Hotel and the Crowne Plaza Times Square are among the 16 city hotels ... whose owners have agreed to cut greenhouse gases from their buildings by 30 percent or more in the next decade. Mayor Bill de Blasio's office is spearheading the NYC Carbon Challenge program, and will announce the hotels' commitment [today] ... The expansion to the 16 hotels - which also include the Grand Hyatt New York, the Westin New York at Times Square and The Peninsula New York among others - is estimated to reduce emissions by 32,000 metric tons and result in an estimated $25 million in energy cost savings."

HILLARYWATCH - "Baby on board! Pregnant Chelsea Clinton takes a Christmas stroll around Manhattan with husband Marc, Bill, Hillary and baby Charlotte - (but what IS Granny wearing?)" - The Daily Mail

WINNERS in 2015 -- NYO's Will Bredderman: "1. Preet Bharara ... The U.S. Attorney has managed to usurp Gov. Andrew Cuomo's spot as the most feared man in the state capitol ... 2. Carl Heastie ... signs of systemic reform in his branch of the State Legislature have been scant ... 3. Paul Ryan ... his holding onto his majority in Congress is all but guaranteed for the rest of the decade ... 4. Loretta Lynch ... She almost immediately catapulted herself onto the global stage with a string of arrests, indictments and guilty pleas ... 5. John Flanagan ... will be setting the agenda in the upper house of the State Legislature this coming spring ... 6. Uber ... In a year rife with humiliations for Mayor Bill de Blasio, the e-hail app dealt him perhaps the embarrassing blow of all: a loss on his own turf. ... 7. Daniel Donovan ... [He] is the sole member of the New York City delegation with a voice in the GOP majority, and appears on firmer footing than [his predecessor, Michael] Grimm ever enjoyed ... 8. Melissa Mark-Viverito ... unlike the mayor, she did not allow her cross-country travels to distract from her duties at home ... 9. Michael McMahon ... the former Democratic congressman showed he had more brains than guts when he decided not to take on Mr. Donovan ... 10. Gary LaBarbera ... Cuomo handed Mr. LaBarbera the ultimate trump card over the real estate industry in June: the 421a tax credit for developers."

PREDICTING 2016 -- Looking ahead to New York Politics next year -- Gotham Gazette's Ben Max:

BETA MODE -- Testing first free wifi kiosk, -- Gothamist's Christopher Robbins: "New York City's first free public Wi-Fi hub was installed [Monday] morning, but as is the case with any internet installation, anywhere in the United States, there is a catch: it doesn't work yet. According to a rep from the Department of Information Technology & Telecommunications, the shiny new LinkNYC kiosk on 3rd Avenue near 15th Street in Manhattan is still in its testing phase.

"The Wi-Fi's Hotspot 2.0 signal strength -- which will have a range of 150 feet and is supposed to be as fast as Google Fiber, is being assessed. The city has pledged to build 7,500 of the hubs in place of old pay phone booths over the next 8 years, with 3,500 of them coming in the next four years, and 499 more of them over the next 6 months. Expect to see a few more pop up on 3rd Avenue in the next few weeks. Advertising on the screens is expected to generate $500 million in revenue over a 12 year period."

HITTING BANKS FOR REFUSING TO ACCEPT MUNICIPAL ID CARDS -- NYT editorial: "Their unwillingness, presumably prompted by concerns about fraud, is outrageous. Federal regulators have already declared that the IDNYC may be used to verify a customer's identity, and many smaller banks and credit unions accept the card without hesitation, as does the New York City Police Department. The card's documentation requirements and fraud-prevention features are rigorous. What good reasons could there be for the city's major banks to resist IDNYC?"

REAL ESTATE -- LABOR DAY-"Attorney for anti-union construction group to raise for Cuomo," by POLITICO New York's Dana Rubinstein: "The attorney for a campaign against union construction labor is co-hosting a fundraiser for Gov. Andrew Cuomo. On Monday afternoon, the founding partners of Gotham Government Relations invited powerbrokers to a Jan. 7 fundraiser for Cuomo at the home of Brad and Cheryl Gerstman in Roslyn, on Long Island. The hosts are listed as the Gerstmans and David and Heather Schwartz. Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul is scheduled to make an appearance, according to the invitation. It's not clear whether Cuomo himself will attend."

YEAR IN REVIEW- For residential real estate, 2015 brings inconsistencies, by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: "In many ways, 2015 has been a year of inconsistencies in the city's residential real estate market. It was a year when the median price of a Manhattan apartment exceeded $1 million for the first time, while the homeless population proliferated. It was a year that saw a healthy building boom, buoyed by uncertainty over a popular development tax break, while the vacancy rate in Manhattan crept to a nine-year high. And it was a year that celebrated Manhattan's luxury market, with a record high sale of $100.47 million for a duplex penthouse at the famed One57 skyscraper in Midtown, but is ending with concerns about high-end property sales flattening out. The dichotomies were laid bare in the latest Olshan Luxury Market Report released on Monday. The end-of-year analysis of contracts signed for at least $4 million, the realty company's threshold for the luxury designation, showed that the high end of the market is cooling off, though it recorded its second-best year since 2006."

-"NYC's priciest pads of 2015," by Post's Jennifer Gould Keil: "A duplex on Manhattan's 'Billionaires' Row' and the former home of Eliot Spitzer were among the most expensive pads sold in the city this year. Topping the list was a $91.5 million sky-high palace in Midtown on a stretch of West 57th Street known for its luxury high-rise buildings. Bought by hedge-fund big Bill Ackman, the apartment on the 75th and 76th stories of the One57 tower was the second-costliest home ever sold in the city. ... A borough-by-borough analysis for The Post by real-estate Web site StreetEasy found that ex-Gov. Spitzer's childhood home was the priciest sold in The Bronx this year."


-- Housing: Micro' apartments could become popular in New York City. Assemblywoman Deborah Glick objects. "It just, on some level, is offensive: The only way we can manage to house people is to stick them in a closet. Associated Press:

-- Surveillance: Manhattan D.A. Cy Vance said cell phone and app encryption could impede investigations. WNYC's The Takeaway:

-- Sharpton on Rahm: "I don't see how he can continue governing now. I think there was an outside chance before, as he did reaching out behind the McDonald's tape ... now I think he's going beyond the point where he can eve govern with the trust of the people." via MSNBC, h/t National Review:

-- Charity: "Giving cash where it counts: An idiosyncratic list of charities that make New York City a better place." Errol Louis, in the Daily News:

BIRTHDAYS: Marlene Peralta, a senior associate at Progressive Cities ... Mike Pesca, reporter and host at NPR ... and Josh Vlasto, formerly a spokesman for Gov. Andrew Cuomo and before that, Senator Chuck Schumer.

THE HOME TEAMS -- POLITICO New York's Howard Megdal: The Yankees traded four minor leaguers for Aroldis Chapman, who allegedly pushed and tried to choke his girlfriend, then fired eight shots into a garage wall while she hid in the bushes. Chapman is expected to close for the Yankees.

-- Nets 111, Heat 105: Brook Lopez scored 26, and Wayne Ellington also scored 26-on seven threes-in a surprising road win.

-- The day ahead: Andre Drummond and the Pistons visit The Garden. The Islanders are in Toronto.

COFFEE BREAK -- "Times Square Visitors Say Goodbye to the Worst of 2015," by DNAinfo's

John Santore: "The 9th Annual Good Riddance Day let people unload themselves of events, people and thoughts that made the past year less than perfect - and shred them.

The event was co-sponsored by the Times Square Alliance and Countdown Entertainment.

If shredding wasn't good enough, a nearby mallet and safety goggles were also available - used by one visitor who brought with him an alarm clock that has woken him, unprompted, at all times of the night in the past 12 months.

Many submissions for shredding were personal and poignant.

Isabella Saffioti and Sabrina Ruffo, two 18-year-old college students, were excited to leave behind the difficult tests of their first-year biology classes.

Queens resident Nancy Bommer, 45, shredded the bills she had paid on time, allowing her to "invest in better dental care and a better me" in 2016.

Spencer Goodwin, 21, from Baltimore, shredded intolerance for the members of the LGBT community, asking for love to be free around the world."

#UpstateAmerica: "Upstate New York's music scene is even heavier than the snowfall."

** A Message from Nuclear Matters: Some of America's existing nuclear energy plants face early closure due to current economic and policy conditions. Providing more than 62% of America's carbon-free electricity, existing, state-of-the-art nuclear energy plants play a vital role in achieving our clean-energy and carbon-reduction goals.
