A VERY NEW YORK PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE - POLITICO New York's Dana Rubinstein: Gov. Andrew Cuomo got a cameo in Thursday night's nationally televised Democratic presidential debate in Brooklyn. During a confused argument over whether or not Hillary Clinton supports a $15 minimum wage - she "of course" would support it if Congress passes it, but would prefer $12 at the national level - the former secretary of state lavished praise on Cuomo's handiwork in New York. "We've got to be smart about it, just the way Governor Cuomo was here in New York," said Clinton. "If you look at it, we move more quickly to $15 in New York City, more deliberately toward $12, $12.50 upstate, then to $15. That is exactly my position." And it is, she said, "a model for the nation."
It's not often that Cuomo gets mentioned during a presidential primary debate. It's also not often that Brooklyn plays host to a presidential debate in advance of a New York primary that might actually be competitive. Depending on the poll you prefer, Clinton holds anywhere from a 10- to 17-point lead over Bernie Sanders in the April 19 contest. And so on Thursday night, in a Brooklyn Navy Yard warehouse filled with local politicos, Clinton and Sanders touted their hometown bonafides and said "New York," "9/11" and "Brooklyn" a lot. http://politi.co/1V5yKhS

THE REPUBLICANS GATHER - Jimmy's dispatch from the Grand Hyatt Hotel: Donald Trump has built his campaign around tearing down the very people he addressed Thursday night: well-heeled donors, party leaders, lobbyists and big businessmen who, lined up in dinner jackets and black ties, form an almost stereotypical portrait of Republican insiders. So what did he talk to them about during a fundraising dinner hosted by New York's Republican State Committee? Manhattan real estate. The audience laughed at a joke about picking an address on Park Avenue over 42nd Street. They snickered, knowingly, at stories of the never-ending lunch breaks of unionized tradesmen and the copper piping at the Wollman Rink that was stolen time and again. They chortled again, as perhaps only this audience could, when Trump invoked the name of Richard Ravitch, the developer and one-time lieutenant governor, as long-winded.
There were no mentions of a wall with Mexico, President Obama's birth certificate, the horrible, unfair liberal media or protesters who should be expelled - but please, not too violently. He didn't mention his electoral opponents by name, and even his swipes at fun straw men - he said Bill de Blasio could very quickly let the city slip back into the bad old days, and said Jeb Bush would be more energetic if he lived in the five boroughs - were almost good natured. Instead, the tuxedo-clad version of Donald Trump was warm, relaxed, funny and, if you can believe it, quiet charming. In a crowd leery of a billionaire developer whipping up populist fervor to become the standard bearer of the party of Nelson Rockefeller, you could almost hear a sigh of relief. http://politi.co/1V5xImf
-- "This, right now, is the center of the universe and it's important," said Rob Astorino, the Republican Westchester County executive and the party's 2014 gubernatorial nominee. "He's got to start reaching out. He's got to get to 1,237-he's not there yet. All the county chairs are here, and you've got potential delegates if not designated delegates already. I think people are still curious to see how he's going to act and behave and when he's going to start pivoting toward being presidential. That's what we hear all the time."

TEXTING-FRIENDLY MOVIE THEATERS? -- AMC C.E.O. Adam Aron tries luring millennials to the big screen -- Variety's Brent Lang: "Would appealing to millennials involve allowing texting or cellphone use?
-- Aron: "Yes. When you tell a 22-year-old to turn off the phone, don't ruin the movie, they hear please cut off your left arm above the elbow. You can't tell a 22-year-old to turn off their cellphone. That's not how they live their life.
"At the same time, though, we're going to have to figure out a way to do it that doesn't disturb today's audiences. There's a reason there are ads up there saying turn off your phone, because today's moviegoer doesn't want somebody sitting next to them texting or having their phone on.
-- Lang: "Would you have a certain section for texting?
TABLOID WARS -- Post editor Col Allan is retiring -- POLITICO New York's Joe Pompeo: Col Allan, longtime editor in chief of the New York Post and consigliere to News Corp chairman Rupert Murdoch, has announced that he will retire at the end of the month. In an announcement Thursday evening, Murdoch called Allan "one of the most outstanding editors of his generation." The announcement noted that Allan, 62, is the longest serving editor at News Corp (42 years), which has owned the Post for decades.
Allan will be succeeded on May 1 by Sunday editor Stephen Lynch, 43 , who will report to Jesse Angelo, another close Murdoch confidant and longtime Post fixture who rose up to become the tabloid's publisher in 2012. http://goo.gl/UqoBGh

SCANDAL FALLOUT -- BDB's approval rating at 35% Daily News' Jennifer Fermino: " Mayor de Blasio, whose administration is dealing with the fallout from scandals involving the NYPD and a highly criticized land deal, is mired in low approval ratings. Only 35% of voters rated his job performance as 'good' or 'excellent,' according to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC 4 New York/Marist Poll. That's down 11 points from a May 2015 poll, and down three points from November. The poll of 767 New York City voters - conducted between Sunday and Wednesday - comes after a spate of bad headlines for City Hall." http://goo.gl/3iwYXU
-- Cuomo at 41% -- - WSJ's Josh Dawsey: "Among voters statewide, 41% described New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's job performance as excellent or good, up slightly from a 37% approval rating last year. Any potential challenger to Mr. de Blasio, a Democrat, would face significant headwinds as the mayor retains deep labor support and a high approval rating among black voters, who dominate his party's primary. It is unclear whether anyone will challenge Mr. de Blasio for his party's nomination in the September 2017 primary. Still, Mr. de Blasio's support appears increasingly shaky, even among his political base, with 37% of Democrats describing his job performance as fair and 17% calling it poor. Among voters who consider themselves liberal or very liberal, 54% said his job performance was fair or poor, compared with 43% who said it was excellent or good." http://on.wsj.com/1SdGZEV
-- The Mayor's Nonprofit Experiment and His Reelection Bid: "...These two nonprofits, besides helping the mayor achieve defining victories of his term - the establishment of universal pre-kindergarten and City Council approval of key pieces of his affordable housing plan - give a snapshot of the support de Blasio has built among labor unions, real estate developers, and advocacy groups, many of which were big independent spenders in the 2013 elections. As 2017 approaches, de Blasio has had a choppy first two-plus years, but remains fairly popular, especially with his base, and the power of incumbency with crime low and the economy strong is attractive to many donors eager to curry favor."

COOKING THE BOOKS IN ROCKLAND - Times' Ben Weiser: "Christopher St. Lawrence, the elected supervisor of Ramapo, a town in Rockland County, N.Y., has been charged in a federal fraud case that stems from the financing of a local minor-league baseball stadium that has long been a divisive issue for the town's residents. The charges against Mr. Lawrence and a second person are expected to be announced at a news conference on Thursday morning by Preet Bharara, the United States attorney for the Southern District of New York, and Diego Rodriguez, the head of the New York office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The second defendant is N. Aaron Troodler, who was the executive director of the Ramapo Local Development Corporation, a nonprofit organization that was established to undertake development initiatives in Ramapo." http://nyti.ms/1Vt5IJD
CULTURE CHANGE -- NYT A1, "Met Maestro Plans to Step Down, Ending a Dramatic 40-Year Era," by Times' Michael Cooper: "[O]n Thursday, after a vigorous internal debate in recent months over his future, the Met announced that Mr. Levine, 72, would step down after this season to become music director emeritus, a position in which he would still conduct. Mr. Levine summoned the orchestra and chorus to an unusual meeting Thursday afternoon in List Hall, a small auditorium at the opera house, to deliver the news. There he spoke frankly about his health and his love of the company ... and at one point quoted a letter about artistic integrity by Samuel Beckett. Some listeners grew teary, and at the end Mr. Levine's colleagues gave him what so many audiences had over the years: a standing ovation." http://nyti.ms/1TVrFiR
BROADWAY BUZZ -- "Broadway ad agency SpotCo shows how campaigns are born," by AP's Mark Kennedy: "If you close your eyes and think of a really special Broadway show, there's a good chance an image born at SpotCo will pop up. That's the advertising agency behind two decades of memorable campaigns, from the gritty logo for 'Rent' to the black-and-white photos of slinky dancers in fishnets for 'Chicago,' to Lin-Manuel Miranda's silhouette for 'Hamilton.' A new book celebrating SpotCo's 20 years of campaigns is out this month ... 'On Broadway: From Rent to Revolution,' published by Rizzoli, has personal anecdotes from theater stars, never-released ads, behind-the-scenes stories and tales of how the campaigns were executed. Readers will learn that Nicole Kidman agreed to have her jeans digitally removed for 'The Blue Room' ads; how a SpotCo employee's pet rabbit ended up in an Easter campaign for 'Dirty Rotten Scoundrels'; and the time a taxi was covered in fur to promote 'Avenue Q.'" http://yhoo.it/1QbL5cn

INSIDE THE CAMPAIGNS - "Bernie Sanders's Brooklyn H.Q. Is Exactly How You'd Imagine It: Welcome to the nerve center of the revolution," by Vanity Fair's Tina Nguyen: "Sanders's Brooklyn shop ... is a starving artist's dream: a warehouse with exposed wood beams vaulting into the ceiling, crammed with the normal detritus befitting a political campaign-boxes of flyers, bags of buttons and pins, foldout gray tables, couches seemingly sourced from the 'free' section of Craigslist. And of course, ubiquitous Bernie posters, in all languages, in all colors, several of them homemade and scribbled by hand, others just silhouettes of his windblown white hair and glasses.

CHRISTIE CHRONICLES -- "New Jersey Billboards Hit Christie Over Trump Endorsement," by Time's Phil Elliott: "Bridges Over Politics for New Jersey plans to post billboards and online ads calling on Christie to denounce the rhetoric that has propelled Trump to the top ... In one such billboard, Christie is pictured standing behind Trump with a thought bubble leaving the governor thinking to himself: 'Help.' ... Another billboard simply captions the same image as 'sad.'" http://ti.me/1qXFYse
TRUMP'S DELEGATE CHALLENGE -- "Trump poised for New York landslide," by Politico's Shane Goldmacher and Scott Bland: "Donald Trump is poised to win New York in a landslide on Tuesday but he could leave as many as two-dozen critical delegates on the table by failing to win an outright majority in every corner of the state ... Under the state's complex rules, all three delegates in each of the state's 27 congressional districts are awarded to the winner if he or she gets to 50 percent there - meaning that even a dominant Trump performance short of that mark could leak some delegates to his rivals. ... In [a new Optimus Consulting] poll, Trump's strongest showings are on Long Island and in Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island in New York City, where he's above or within the margin of error of 50 percent in 10 congressional districts." http://politi.co/1QbGLdc
REAL ESTATE -- RACE MATTERS-"Segregation Issue Complicates de Blasio's Housing Push," by Times' Mireya Navarro: "As New York City tries to spur construction of tens of thousands of apartments to meet an accelerating need for below-market-rate housing, a deeper problem has largely gone unmentioned by municipal officials: the persistence of residential segregation in one of the world's most diverse cities. Nearly 50 years after the passage of the federal Fair Housing Act, segregated neighborhoods remain entrenched around the country, a result of decades of discrimination and a byproduct of powerful, present-day economic forces, like New York's punishing real estate market. Now, the unfinished business of eliminating such segregation has become a renewed focus of the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development, which last year adopted a rule requiring local governments to set realistic goals to reduce barriers to choice in housing, and advance integration - or risk losing federal housing funds." http://nyti.ms/1SdFhnc
REAL ESTATE -"East New York rezoning clears City Council land use committee," by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: "Mayor Bill de Blasio has reached a deal with the City Council on the first neighborhood rezoning of his tenure - for the low-income, blighted East New York area of Brooklyn. The plan was approved by a vote of 18-1 in the council's land use committee on Thursday and will likely pass the full council next week. The two council members who represent the area were split: Rafael Espinal, whose district includes the bulk of the rezoned neighborhood, negotiated the final deal, while acknowledging it is not "a perfect plan." Inez Barron, who oversees a sliver of it, voted against the rezoning because she believes it will result in her poorest constituents getting priced out." http://politi.co/1W1nulz
-"Another Rent Freeze Is Possible in New York City," by Wall Street Journal's Josh Barbanel: "Falling fuel costs may give New Yorkers who live in rent-stabilized apartments a reprieve from significant rent increases for the consecutive third year. At a meeting Thursday, the New York City Rent Guidelines Board released a key price index suggesting the cost of operating rental buildings in the five boroughs fell in the last 12 months, for only the second time since 1969. The release set off a debate over the accuracy of the index, as the board prepares for a May vote on whether to increase, decrease or freeze regulated rents for apartment leases signed on or after Oct. 1, 2016." http://on.wsj.com/1SdIV0f

The singer of 'Respect,' 'Chain of Fools' and other classics took the night off, content to smile and nod her head along to performances by the Dizzy Gillespie All Stars and Dennis Edwards of Temptations fame.

** 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: NuclearMatters.com. **
