POLITICO New York Playbook, presented by Nuclear Matters: NEW YORK on Trump campaign -- L TRAIN pain -- 'HAMILTON' on track for $100 million in first year

04/04/2016 07:50 AM EDT

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

NEW YORK MAG COVER STORY -- "How the Trump Campaign Actually Works ... OPERATION TRUMP: Inside the most unorthodox campaign in political history," by Gabe Sherman: "Trump's campaign employs a core team of about a dozen people; his campaign lists 94 people on the payroll nationwide, according to the latest ... filing (Hillary Clinton has 765). Trump has no pollsters, media coaches, or speechwriters. He focus-groups nothing. He buys few ads, and when he does, he likes to write them himself. He also writes his own tweets, his main vehicle for communicating with his supporters. And it was his idea to adopt Ronald Reagan's slogan 'Make America Great Again!' ...

"[Hope Hicks , Trump's 27-year-old press secretary, told] me about the time they were driving to a campaign event when Ivanka called to update Trump on a development. 'He said, "Go with the marble. Now I have to run, baby. I'm about to give a speech." ... When they're in New York, Hicks spends most of her day sitting in Trump's office with her laptop, fielding press inquiries and taking dictation from him to tweet. Lewandowski spends most of his time in the campaign office, organizing logistics. He's said to approve every invoice himself. Trump has given them both free apartments at a nearby Trump building.

"The small scale and near-constant proximity mean they can respond to events quickly. ... Trump is cheap, and proud of it. ... Lewandowski's bonus for winning New Hampshire was a paltry $50,000. ... 'I don't spend much money,' [Trump] told me. 'In New Hampshire, I spent $2 million' - actually $3.7 million - 'Bush spent $48 million' - actually $36.1 million - 'I came in first in a landslide, he came in sixth' - actually fourth. 'Who do you want as your president?''" ... See the cover.

-- "Donald Trump's 4-Hour Sleep Habit Could Explain His Personality," by The Daily Beast's Abby Haglage: "Perhaps he's one of the two percent of the population with a rare genetic mutation that allows him to get a perfect night's rest in nearly half the time. Upbeat, energetic, and healthy, those with the 'efficient sleeper' mutation are near-superhumans-a group of brains so advanced they've uprooting everything we know about sleep. They're the tireless, unwavering, 'sleepless elite.' ... '[N]atural short sleepers' ... [carry] a mutation on the DEC2 gene, they show near perfect health in their 90s and an endless supply of energy."

TOP TWEET -- @davidplouffe: "If Trump loses, not because he was 'treated unfairly'. It was because of epic political malpractice on many levels. Controlled his destiny."

-- CLINTON READIES FOR NEW YORK -- NY1's Josh Robin: "Clinton had tough words for Sanders about his record in the Senate regarding gun control. 'Contrasts are fair game. You know I really oppose his record on gun control, his refusal to take on the NRA. I think that's wrong for New York, wrong for America.' Clinton also took on the entire Republican field when she was asked about Donald Trump's reversal over whether women should be prosecuted for getting illegal abortions. 'They all went to make abortion illegal and if you make something illegal, you have to have consequences and that leads to punishment which is what Trump was advocating,' Clinton said. SEE THE INTERVIEW:

-- THE SOUL OF NEW YORK'S DEMOCRATIC PARTY - News' Harry Siegel: "The WFP is backing Sanders - their first-ever endorsement in a national contest - and if he breaks 40% in the popular vote here, it's another warning sign to Cuomo, Clinton and the other remaining Democratic centrists that, after the great collapse of 2008 and then Occupy Wall Street and now Black Lives Matter, the party's activist base, feeling its strength growing, is hungry for more, now."

WITH HEASTIE'S HELP, CITY FARES WELL IN BUDGET - POLITICO New York's Laura Nahmias: It could have been a lot worse. Mayor Bill de Blasio achieved a victory in this year's state budget, successfully avoiding a series of cuts and spending shifts Gov. Andrew Cuomo proposed in his January spending plan that could have cost New York City nearly $1 billion this year and more in the years after. Two of the biggest and potentially most damaging items Cuomo proposed in his executive budget - a $485 million increase in what the city pays for its CUNY schools and a proposal to require the city pay more of its own Medicaid costs, estimated to add $300 million to the city's spending this year and more in later years - were removed, in their entirety, from the final spending plan.

This year's state budget process, de Blasio's third since he became mayor, marked a significant strategic shift for de Blasio in two ways. The first and simplest piece of that: de Blasio's wish list was short this year. In the past, the mayor went to Albany seeking hundreds of millions of dollars for universal pre-kindergarten (in year one), or new money for the New York City Housing Authority (in year two). The second piece of the shift, possibly as a direct result of battles with the state: this year found de Blasio playing defense, mostly from New York City, allowing allies in Albany to speak up for the city's interests.So during the budget process this year, De Blasio made himself scarce in the state Capitol, preferring instead to rely on the city's allies in the state Legislature, particularly Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie, to fight back the menu of proposed cuts.

-- The final bills passed the State Assembly just before sundown on Friday. Senators finished around 9 a.m.

-- Times' Jesse McKinley and Vivian Yee: "As the gilded Capitol building devolved into a cage for semiferal legislators, lawyers, bill drafters and reporters, democracy appeared less glamorous, and less pristine, than ever. ... The metaphors lawmakers used to denounce the process, too, grew notably untidy. 'I was saying to some people, if you don't give me a menu and don't allow me to order, then don't put a baloney sandwich in front of me and call it steak,' said Senator Gustavo Rivera, a Democrat from the Bronx, who rose at 6:50 a.m. to register his objections to the way legislators had been hustled through the budget vote. 'This was a steak sandwich - maybe not a filet mignon - so I'll be voting in the affirmative,' he added. 'But it should not work like this.' "

-- Despite outcry from good-government groups, the $147.2 billion spending plan approved overnight last week added another $385 million lump of discretionary funding for unspecified projects around the state. The additional funds appeared in the capital projects budget bill in an amendment at 10:37 p.m. on Thursday - just over an hour before the budget deadline, and roughly four overnight hours before it cleared the State Senate by a 59-3 vote. It brings that total amount of money in the State and Municipal Facilities Program, or SAM, to $1.49 billion.

-- The final budget directed some community schools funding through the Foundation Aid formula (Click here for school aid runs), booked $250 million in savings from Medicaid, claws $200 million in bond savings from New York City, invests $200 million in water infrastructure and sets back tipped workers to a lower proportional minimum wage.

-- Heastie: "I think this is exactly the type of budget that Assembly Democrats dream about, but for us this year, it actually became a reality," the Bronx Democrat said. "I couldn't be more pleased. My colleagues couldn't be more pleased. For us, one of the few states to have this kind of an impact for the minimum wage increase and to have paid family leave."

ON THE MOVE: Damien LaVera is leaving Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's office for a position at Patricia Lynch Associates. UAlbany awesome women's basketball coach, Katie Abrahamson-Henderson, is leaving for a job at the University of Central Florida.

-- Molly Erman, a former associate director of communications at The New Yorker and a Vanity Fair alum, is starting today as communications director for New Lab in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, which is a hub of innovation in disciplines like robotics and A.I.

WHEN HABITAT FOR HUMANITY CAME TO BROOKLYN -- ProPublica's Marcelo Rochabrun: "In 2010, the New York City affiliate of Habitat for Humanity received a $21 million federal grant to work on a city neighborhood hit particularly hard by the foreclosure crisis and help stabilize it. The funds would allow Habitat-NYC to launch the most ambitious project in its 32-year history. Its neighborhood pick was Bedford-Stuyvesant, a historically poor neighborhood in central Brooklyn, where the charity would focus on buying and renovating abandoned apartment buildings. There was just one problem. With few vacancies in the gentrifying area, longtime tenants were pushed out of their apartments - some into homelessness - clearing the way for developers to sell to Habitat at a hefty profit, a ProPublica investigation has found.

"Ultimately, Habitat's project came with a cost: While scores of families gained new homes, other even needier ones were displaced. Though Habitat promoted the properties it acquired to renovate as "long-vacant," four of nine were still occupied shortly before the charity moved to buy them, records show. In two cases, Habitat targeted buildings just days after the last families living there moved out."

ACS FOSTER FATHER SEXUAL ABUSE SCANDAL -- Times' Nikita Stewart and Joseph Goldstein: "Over two decades, the city's child welfare agency sent 95 boys to live with Mr. Gonzales-Mugaburu, according to state records. Other child welfare agencies turned to him during that time as well. In all, 106 boys were placed with Mr. Gonzales-Mugaburu, as he became a sort of storybook hero to child welfare workers struggling to find suitable homes for troubled children."

BUSTED -- Arrested addicts instead of dealers -- Times' Joseph Goldstein: "A review of [several] trials ... illuminates what appears to be a tactic for small-scale drug prosecutions: An undercover officer, supplying the cash for the deal, asks an addict to go and buy $20 or $40 worth of crack or heroin. When the addict - perhaps hoping for a chance to smoke or inject a pinch - does so, he is arrested. In the case of the 21-year-old at the McDonald's, the undercover officer was an unkempt woman who gave the impression she was about to experience withdrawal, the 21-year-old testified. In one of the other cases, an officer allowed an addict to use his cellphone to call a dealer.

"It is impossible to determine how widespread this law enforcement tactic is, but the four recent cases reviewed by The New York Times raise troubling questions about the fairness and effectiveness of the way the Police Department uses undercover officers. Officers neither arrested nor pursued the dealers who sold the drugs to the addicts. Instead, the undercover officers waited around the corner or down the block for the addict to return with the drugs before other officers swooped in. ... Joan Vollero, a spokeswoman for the Manhattan district attorney's office, which prosecuted three of the four cases reviewed by The Times, declined to say whether the office considered such sting operations to be appropriate."

BROADWAY BUZZ - "'Hamilton' could score over $100M in first year on Broadway," by Post's Gregory Bresiger : "While Broadway saw its first $100 million-plus annual box office gross in 2014 with 'The Lion King,' according to Broadway World, 'Hamilton' may be poised to eclipse the Disney production. With the highest average ticket price at $161.82 and playing to standing-room-only houses, the Lin-Manuel Miranda-led musical could see a $105 million season in its first year on Broadway, according to theater analysts."

TRANSIT TROUBLE -- "L Train Pain Could Spread to Manhattan," by WSJ's Andrew Tangel: "A future shutdown of the L train's East River tunnel for repairs has had Brooklyn residents and businesses on edge, but Manhattan could get its own transit headache. A full closure of the tunnel-and both of its tracks potentially for more than a year-could lead to a shutdown of the L train stops in Manhattan in addition to halting subway service under the East River, cutting off a key crosstown route. An L train shutdown in Manhattan has been among the scenarios under consideration by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority ... Transit officials have also examined the possibility of maintaining limited L train service between the line's five Manhattan stops along 14th Street, between Eighth and First avenues."

MEDIA MORNING -- TODAY is "National Hug a Newsperson Day" To elicit more hugs, our tipster suggests: "Reporters should wear a button or something."

--NYT's T Magazine is launching a new column called "Perfect Strangers" in its upcoming Culture Issue (in print on Sunday, 4/17) and online this morning. "In the new column, T brings together two people for the very first time. The inaugural column features talk-show host Chelsea Handler and cultural critic and former longtime literary editor at The New Republic Leon Wieseltier in conversation mere moments after being introduced. They met on a chilly February afternoon in New York, and discussed everything from unconditional love to American politics and the danger of self-censorship."

REAL ESTATE -- NO GOOD DEED-"The mysterious partners who bamboozled city into luxury condo deal," by Post's Isabel Vincent and Melissa Klein: "The obscure Brooklyn company at the center of a City Hall scandal already owed millions of dollars in unpaid taxes, and its principals were accused of 'secretly scheming' against a former business partner, long before the city signed off on a sweetheart deal that netted the firm a $72 million profit, records show. The Allure Group, a cadre of young, seemingly disparate entrepreneurs, has been on a buying spree, snatching up nonprofit nursing homes across the city and turning them into for-profit cash cows. Its $72 million payday for flipping a nonprofit Lower East Side nursing home to a luxury condo developer - after first getting asleep-at-the-switch bureaucrats to lift a deed restriction that would have prevented the conversion - has ignited a scandal that's embroiled Mayor de Blasio and prompted two investigations."

ALLURE'S TIES TO DE BLASIO -- The Forward's Josh Nathan-Kazis: "At a recent fundraiser for the Bobov Hasidic group attended by New York City mayor Bill de Blasio, City Council member David Greenfield told the crowd that de Blasio 'did not forget his friends.' Now, de Blasio's ties to the Bobov have put him on the defensive, amid a scandal over a nursing home chain run by a prominent Bobov businessman. Allure Group made $72 million in February flipping a Lower East Side home for AIDS patients to a condo developer. Now, the New York City Comptroller and the city's Department of Investigation are investigating the deal, and de Blasio says that his administration was 'misled' by the firm. Allure's CEO, Solomon Rubin, is a prominent member of the Boro Park-based Bobov Hasidic group, one of the city's largest ultra-Orthodox sects. The Bobov enjoy a particularly close relationship with de Blasio, who represented Boro Park in the City Council from 2001 to 2009. On March 9, days before the Allure scandal broke, de Blasio attended a fundraising dinner for Amidei Zion of Mosdos Bobov, a Bobov charity, at the New York Hilton. The mayor announced trash collection schedule changes meant to ease congestion in Boro Park, earning vigorous applause."

CAPALINO SPEAKS -- Lobbyist With Tie to Land Deal Is Worry to de Blasio Aides -- WSJ's Josh Dawsey: "Mr. Capalino, speaking publicly for the first time about the deed change that is now under investigation by the city's Department of Investigation and the city comptroller's office, said there is no reason for the mayor's aides to be worried about him. He said he initially lobbied for the deed change, was unsuccessful and wasn't involved in the final deal. Mr. Capalino said there was 'no factual basis' for suggesting he was involved. Still, he said, he is reconsidering whether to continue fundraising for Mr. de Blasio while he is lobbying City Hall. 'We have a nation that is very dubious about the bona fides about government at all levels and suspicious about the intentions of people who hold power,' Mr. Capalino said."

CHECKOUT TIME -"Say goodbye to one of NYC's last living landmarks," by Post's Steve Cuozzo: "It took more than $1 billion to give us a haunting glimpse of century-ago New York - and, very soon, to obliterate it forever. In a few weeks, the 100-year old, faded painted ad for the Longacre Hotel at 157 W. 47th St. - 'Rooms $1, With Bath $1.50' - which has delighted nostalgia buffs for two years, will be swallowed up by concrete and steel for a new hotel going up next door. The Longacre checked out for good several generations ago. But its sign, steeped in the melancholy of lost urban strata, is a most stubborn vestige of an extinct city. It will only reluctantly be interred by the new Times Square Edition by Marriott Hotel going up at the northeast corner of Seventh Avenue and 47th Street."

VIVA LA VISA -"Extell seeking up to $200M in EB-5 funding for LES condo," by The Real Deal's E.B. Solomont: "Extell Development isn't just giving Asian buyers the first crack at buying apartments at its forthcoming condominium in Lower Manhattan. The firm is eyeing Asian investment in the project, dubbed One Manhattan Square, through the EB-5 visa program. The Gary Barnett-led firm is hoping to raise between $100 million and $200 million for the 815-unit project through the popular - and controversial - program, which offers foreign investors a U.S. green card in exchange for a $500,000 investment."

INDUSTRY MOVES -"Zuckerman to Step Down From Boston Properties' Board Next Month," by Bloomberg News' David M. Levitt: "Mort Zuckerman, who co-founded Boston Properties Inc. in 1970 and has been its chairman since 1997, will leave the company's board next month following its annual election of trustees. Zuckerman, 78, won't seek re-election at the company's annual meeting, Boston Properties, the biggest U.S. office real estate investment trust, said in a proxy filing Friday. In honor of his 'long and dedicated service,' Zuckerman will be named chairman emeritus and still be able to attend board meetings ... Zuckerman and co-founder Ed Linde were the guiding forces behind the growth of Boston Properties, whose holdings include the General Motors Building and former Citigroup Center in New York, Boston's Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, and the Capital Gallery in Washington."

THE HOME TEAMS - The Royals beat the Mets 4-3, in a season opener that looked uncomfortably like a continuation of the World Series.

The Syracuse women's basketball team beat Washington 80-59, and will play UConn in the final Sunday night.

#UpstateAmerica: The key to a stash of Nazi loot is buried somewhere in the woods near the former Grossinger's resort.

** A Message from Nuclear Matters: New York's existing nuclear energy plants provide 61 percent of the state's carbon-free electricity and play a vital role in achieving our clean-energy and carbon-reduction goals. Additional premature retirements of safe, reliable nuclear energy plants mean New Yorkers would pay more for electricity, the economy would suffer and we would face substantially higher carbon emissions.

New York has taken an essential step forward to address the premature closures of our nuclear energy plants. The proposed development of a Clean Energy Standard by the Public Service Commission would, for the first time, ensure that existing nuclear plants are valued for their carbon-free attributes.

We urge the state to include all of New York's existing nuclear energy plants, regardless of their geography in the state, in the proposed Clean Energy Standard. All nuclear energy facilities bring significant reliability and clean-air benefits to New York. Learn more: **
