POLITICO New York Playbook, presented by The Business Council of New York State: JAMES BENNET to head Times edit board -- SHELTER crisis details -- SILVER-SKELOS judgment hour

03/15/2016 07:10 AM EDT

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

NYT EDITORIAL BOARD CHANGE -- POLITICO New York's Joe Pompeo: In a seismic shift in the upper ranks of The New York Times, longtime editorial page editor Andy Rosenthal is stepping down and will be replaced by James Bennet, editor of The Atlantic. Times publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr., to whom the editorial editor reports, announced the change on Monday, saying he had asked Rosenthal to begin writing online columns on subjects including the election. POLITICO first reported on Sunday that Bennet was in talks to return to the Times, where he had worked from 1991 to 2006 in roles including White House correspondent and Jerusalem bureau chief, in a senior position. "I feel very honored to have served in this position for longer than any editorial page editor in the modern history of The Times and during a period of such sweeping change, both in our business and in the world we cover," Rosenthal, 60, said in a prepared statement.

JUDGMENT HOUR: APRIL 13, 10 A.M. - New York Times' Benjamin Weiser: "The two recent public corruption trials in Manhattan - of Sheldon Silver , the former State Assembly speaker, and Dean G. Skelos, the former State Senate majority leader - were notable, among other reasons, for their timing. At one point, both trials moved ahead almost in sync, in federal courthouses near each other, each drawing crowds of spectators and reporters. Now both former politicians will be sentenced at precisely the same hour on the same day."

ABOUT BROOKLYN NIGHT: Brooklyn is on "fiya," State Sen. Marty Golden of Bay Ridge proclaimed several times at an event the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce held at the Hart Theater Lounge in the Egg in Albany Monday night. Not fire - "fiya." The event, which showcases the delicacies of Brooklyn and its small businesses had about everything that's synonymous with the borough- Nathan's Hot Dogs, Junior's Cheesecake, mountains of Utz chips and what appeared to be the crowd favorite, Ikea meatballs. Lt. Gov Kathy Hochul, of Buffalo, was given a rousing introduction as lawmakers and hordes of staffers nibbled on egg rolls and mini cupcakes. Pans of what appeared to have been lasagna from Michael's were pillaged by attendees and finished the event as a sloppy mess. (It was delicious, appearances be damned.) Assemblyman Joe Lentol, the dean of Kings County's delegation, was in attendance along Sens. Marty Dilan and Ruben Diaz, a Bronxite who sported his signature cowboy hat. New York City Councilman Vincent Gentile was also present, seen chatting with attendees in front of cannoli display, which offered traditional pastries as well as a frozen version of the Italian treat in a honeycomb-type cone. --Josefa Velasquez

VIRTUAL TIE FOR SKELOS SEAT - POLITICO New York's Bill Mahoney: The candidates for a vacant Long Island Senate District are effectively tied, according to a new Siena Research Institute poll. Democrat Todd Kaminsky received the support of 47 percent of likely voters, and 45 percent said they favored Republican Chris McGrath. Both have similar approval ratings, with 44 percent of respondents viewing Kaminsky favorably and 20 percent unfavorably; for McGrath, the split is 43-23. The two are competing for the seat long held by Dean Skelos, who was removed from office when he was convicted on corruption charges late last year.

** A message from The Business Council of New York State: One obscure law is holding New York back from economic opportunity and job creation. A law called Non-CPA Ownership is placing undue restrictions on who can take partner-level positions at auditing firms, and it's costing New Yorkers over 1,000 jobs and more than $6.5 million in state revenue.

LITTLE FRUIT FROM CUBA TRIP - City & State's Jon Lentz: "On his return flight from Cuba last spring, Cuomo said he was surprised he was departing the island nation with two business deals already in the works. 'Frankly, I did not believe we would make that much progress in that short a period of time,' Cuomo told reporters. 'I was shocked that they made as much progress as they did in two days.' But nearly 11 months later, there is little sign that the governor has actually generated much new business, raising questions about whether expanding trade between New York and Cuba is a top priority for his administration and spurring criticism that his visit was little more than a taxpayer-funded photo op. 'If you evaluate the trip based upon the return on investment, the amount of money that was spent - almost $200,000 - and what was achieved, it is a substantial negative rate of return for the taxpayers of New York state,' said John Kavulich, president of the U.S.-Cuba Trade and Economic Council. 'For the ego of the governor, it's a triple-digit return on the investment.' Skeptics say the concerns were there ever since the details of the trade mission came out. One common complaint was that the trip, which spanned only a day and half, was far too short to develop any real business ties."

SHELTER CRISIS -- "NYC homeless would rather risk the street than hellish shelter system," Daily News' Edgar Sandoval, Dale Eisinger, and Greg Smith: " Thousands of faceless New Yorkers huddling under blankets - on sidewalks or on subway cars - would rather risk freezing to death than face the chances of being beaten, robbed or stabbed inside a city shelter. An unprecedented review of shelter records by The News reveals a cruel system where violence is an everyday event, where predators set upon the vulnerable, and where children are subjected to conditions that no child should have to endure. ... Records obtained by The News show that in 2015, there were 1,687 so-called 'critical incidents' in the city's shelters. That's about five a day or 32 a week with a significant number of attacks carried out by mentally ill residents."

-- Rape, domestic violence in shelters -- " NY1 obtained through a Freedom of Information Law request never-before-seen crime reports, which, for the first time, detail violent and what are called critical incidents that were reported in all of the city's homeless shelters in 2015. The data and reports show that domestic violence has overrun the system, overdoses occur in bathrooms, and bedrooms and sexual assaults happen behind closed doors. These are all horrific and violent incidents plaguing a system that is supposed to provide sanctuary and shelter for the neediest New Yorkers. 'We do have security guards or whatever, but it doesn't really matter because it's just getting worse and worse by the day here,' said Nicole Souza, who stays at the Parkview Hotel. NY1's Courtney Gross:

-- NYPD to overhaul shelter security -- POLITICO New York's Laura Nahmias: City Hall is bringing senior New York Police Department officials in to overhaul security at the city's more than 600 homeless shelters. The NYPD staff will be conducting a full review of the security procedures currently in place at the city's shelters, a move that comes on the eve of the finalization of a 90-day review of the city's homeless services system ordered by Mayor Bill de Blasio back in December. That review is being overseen by First Deputy Mayor Tony Shorris and Human Resources Administration Commissioner Steve Banks.

IN THE ZONE-"Council reaches deal on de Blasio's housing plans," by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg and Gloria Pazmino: "The City Council is poised to pass two of Mayor Bill de Blasio's housing plans next week, giving him the authority to enact the first citywide policy to require below-market-rate development in exchange for a rezoning and to overhaul the 45-year-old zoning code. The Council announced its deal Monday afternoon and Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito said she is 'comfortable' she has enough votes to pass the two proposals known as Mandatory Inclusionary Housing and Zoning for Quality and Affordability. The Council's land use committee is expected to pass it on Thursday; the full Council will vote next week. ... In response to complaints the proposal did not require enough mandated housing for low-income New Yorkers, the Council introduced a fourth option for developers - that they build 20 percent of their units for those making 40 percent of the area median income, which is $31,075 for a family of three in the city. The other three options require between 25 percent and 30 percent of the apartments be set aside for New Yorkers making between 60 percent and 115 percent of the area median income. The Council reduced the highest option from 120 percent to 115 percent and is forcing developers to build at least 10 percent of those units for even lower-income families."

HAPPENING TODAY - "U.S. Senators Kirsten Gillibrand, Elizabeth Warren and Charles E. Schumer and New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, with Grammy award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda of the Broadway show Hamilton, [today] at 10:30 AM [in the Senate Small Business Committee Hearing Room], will announce a new push to address the humanitarian and economic crisis in Puerto Rico. Senators Gillibrand and Warren will introduce new legislation that would give Puerto Rico the ability to file for bankruptcy protection and restructure its debt in a transparent, orderly way."

CHOOSE YOUR VIEWS, Trump violence edition:

-- Post: "Blaming Donald Trump even in part for the violence that has broken out at his rallies is nonsense. This is the same left-wing agitation that has plagued the nation for decades now, a rage that fixes on one target of opportunity after another. ... if he were inciting violence in any real way, you'd see Trumpites disrupting other candidates' gatherings."

-- NYT: "Trump's calls to violence are the sickest part of the con that is his presidential campaign. ... Trump, who blathered on about 'winning' on Sunday, has not a single solid, truthful idea about how to address the roots of this seething anger. He is basking in the energy created by turning one American against another..."

REAL ESTATE -- HITTING THE BRAKES-"City to reverse controversial crane ban," by Crain's Joe Anuta: "The city is looking to back off stricter rules for cranes instituted after a nearly 600-foot-tall machine collapsed in February and killed a man in lower Manhattan. In the wake of the Feb. 5 accident, which cost 38-year-old David Wichs his life and damaged four buildings when the crane's boom crashed down along the north side of Worth Street, the city's Department of Buildings prohibited crawler cranes, which can be driven around on tank-like treads, from operating in sustained wind speeds topping 20 miles per hour. Now a working group that was established to review the city's crane rules in the wake of the crash has recommended lifting that emergency ban."

-"Are unions losing their grip in NYC?" by The Real Deal's Kathryn Brenzel: "In the 1970s, union members had a monopoly on New York City's skyline. At the time, card-carrying union workers made up a stunning 90 percent of the city's construction workforce. Not surprisingly, that number is down significantly today. The latest stats peg the non-union market share at 40 percent - and some say it may be as high as 50 percent. Union contractors' hold on the industry has been slipping for several years, but their role in NYC development has never been in as much jeopardy as is it now. ... In blunt terms, it's seemingly a perfect storm for a non-union takeover."

-"An End to a Chess Grandmaster's Eviction Battle Could Be Near," by Times' Matt A.V. Chaban: "William J. Lombardy was in the midst of explaining the virtue of the Philidor Defense when a knock came at the door of his sixth-floor apartment in Stuyvesant Town on May 27, 2014. A grandmaster and a mentor to Bobby Fischer, Mr. Lombardy excused himself to answer the door. He walked past a few tarnished and taped-together trophies, rough abstract sketches of chess pieces, a cross from his years in the seminary and old cigar boxes stacked nearly everywhere. When Mr. Lombardy opened the door, a man on the other side handed him a package, which he passed to his student, David Siudzinski. Inside were eviction papers stating that Mr. Lombardy was $27,124.82 behind on rent."

THE HOME TEAMS, by Politico New York's Howard Megdal : The NCAA basketball women's bracket is out, and chock full of local teams. St. John's, an eight seed, faces nine seed Auburn for a likely chance to take on top seed Baylor. St. Bonaventure, a 10 seed, will take on seven seed Oklahoma State. Albany is a 12 seed, and in their fifth straight NCAA bid, are a fashionable upset pick over fifth seed Florida. Army, the 13 seed, will go to Syracuse to face the fourth-seeded Orange. Buffalo, who parlayed an eight seed in the MAC tournament into that tournament's auto bid, earned a 14 seed to face third seed Ohio State. And Iona earned a 15 seed and a game against vaunted Maryland, the two seed.

** A message from The Business Council of New York State: You've probably never heard of Non-CPA Ownership - but you should know that it's costing New York an estimated $6.5 million in state revenue and over 1,000 jobs. New York is one of the only states in the country that restricts appraisers, actuaries, IT specialists, tax pros, and other financial sector professionals from taking partner-level positions at accounting firms.

The ability to fully integrate non-CPA experts into the culture of a firm by offering them partner-level positions is in the public interest. The average accounting firm partner salary is over $450,000 - that's nearly $6.5 million in tax revenue New York is leaving on the table. Even worse, competitor states like CT and NJ have already passed favorable non-CPA ownership rules. New York is being left behind. Learn more at **
