POLITICO New York Playbook: DE BLASIO's quiet Senate cycle -- GIULIANI's prison connection -- CARRIE BUDOFF BROWN named editor of POLITICO

DE BLASIO SITTING OUT SENATE ELECTIONS - POLITICO New York's Josefa Velasquez, Sally Goldenberg and Colby Hamilton: After going all-in to campaign for a Democratic-controlled state Senate in 2014, only to be handed a bruising loss with traumatic effects on his agenda, Mayor Bill de Blasio looks to be sitting out the upcoming election cycle. The mayor's decision not to campaign for Senate Democratic candidates is partly an acknowledgment of the losses that candidates he stumped for in 2014 suffered throughout the state. It also comes as that effort is under investigation for possible skirting of election law.

"I think it is very safe to say that he will be otherwise engaged, using that time to be out rebuilding his own political standing," said one Democratic source. "At a moment like this it's about self-preservation more than anything."

TWO VIEWS -- De Blasio defends Black Lives Matter as Bratton decries 'narrow' protests -- POLITICO New York's Azi Paybarah: Moments after Mayor Bill de Blasio praised the Black Lives Matter movement as having "hit the right note" on racism and police violence in America, his police commissioner, Bill Bratton, complained that "no one seems to be marching" when shooting victims refuse to cooperate with police to solve crimes. Bratton also said that the demonstrations materialize in response to the "narrow issue of shootings by police," adding, "I see it as a different kind of bigotry." The mayor and police commissioner expressed these contrasting views as they sat next to each other in NYPD headquarters Monday while speaking to the press about monthly crime figures and related policing issues. What emerged was a gulf between the city's chief executive and its top law enforcement official on how constructive the Black Lives Matter demonstrations have been in healing the wounds from racism and police violence that have roiled the country over the last several years. Just last week, an off-duty NYPD officer fatally shot a man who approached his vehicle, in an incident caught on surveillance video. The death of the victim, Delrawn Small, is being investigated by the New York State Attorney General's Office and the officer in that incident has been stripped of his gun and badge, Bratton said Monday.

-- SUING SYRIA - Marie Colvin's family decided to sue the government of Syria for allegedly targeting and intentionally killing the Sunday Times of London war correspondent (and Long Island native) in 2012 because, "It just didn't feel right to let her killers go unaccountable and not to have to answer for their crimes," Colvin's sister, Cat Colvin, told CNN's Christiane Amanpour yesterday. "Just absolutely disgusts me that she could be targeted so ruthlessly and have nothing happen."

-- PATCH TAKES MANHATTAN - The once-troubled hyperlocal journalism pioneer has quietly launched about half a dozen websites in the borough over the past two weeks, with neighborhoods including the Upper West and Upper East sides, Harlem, Washington Heights, Midtown, Downtown and Central Park. That builds on a dozen Patches in Brooklyn, and it brings to nearly 1,000 the company's full roster of sites, up from around 900 when AOL sold its majority stake to Hale in 2014. A source familiar with the books said Patch brought in roughly $15 million in revenue last year and has been reinvesting pretty much all of its income so as to operate effectively in break-even mode for the time being.

FIGHT OVER ERIC GARNER PROBE -- 2nd anniversary of his death is days away -- Times' Alan Feuer and Matt Apuzzo: "[A]ccording to those involved, a heated disagreement over how - and even whether - to go forward. Prosecutors with the United States attorney's office in Brooklyn, whose jurisdiction also extends to Staten Island, Queens and Long Island, have expressed doubts that they can prove in court that a crime had been committed; their counterparts in Washington have claimed that they are confident they have sufficient evidence to proceed. ... Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch. Ms. Lynch, formerly the top federal prosecutor in Brooklyn, must now decide between siding with her former colleagues or with the special civil rights team that investigates such cases. It is unclear both what and when she will decide. ... a vigorous debate between prosecutors in Washington and Brooklyn. Lawyers in the Justice Department's civil rights division believe they have enough evidence to prove that Officer Pantaleo acted willfully. But some with the United States attorney's office have been hesitant; according to three current and former federal law enforcement officials, the Brooklyn prosecutors went so far as to argue against taking the case to a grand jury in the first place."


-- POLICE SHOOTING: "NYPD: Sergeant Fatally Shoots Burglary Suspect Who Drew Gun; Police encountered suspect jumping over a fence in Brooklyn" WSJ's Pervaiz Shalwani and Mark Morales:

CITY: SCHOOL WATER IS SAFE, DESPITE SOME LEAD -- Lead found in 509 schools -- News' Ben Chapman: "City students can safely consume drinking water at the public schools despite elevated levels of lead detected in water at 509 school buildings, officials said Monday. City officials found the high lead levels in 1,341 samples taken from public school buildings in March, April and May. But the amounts did not indicate potential harm to students, Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña said. 'Families can rest assured that water in school buildings is of the highest quality and is safe for students and staff to drink,' Fariña said. ... Queens College environmental science Prof. Steven Markowitz said there is no safe level of lead for human consumption, but called the city's test results reassuring overall. He said the results of the city's lead tests should be no cause for concern for the families of 1.1 million kids currently enrolled in the city's public schools."

RUDY'S LINK TO PRISON COMPANY -- News' Greg Smith: "As Rudy Giuliani rails against Black Lives Matter, his law firm reaps tens of thousands of dollars lobbying Congress for the biggest operator of private prisons in America. In January, the former law-and-order mayor left his longtime firm, Giuliani & Bracewell, and jumped to Greenberg Traurig, a major lobbyist law firm with dozens of deep pocket clients. One client is a subsidiary of the Corrections Corporation of America, the Nashville-based for-profit firm that runs or manages 77 prisons housing 88,500 inmates across the U.S. Giuliani's law firm is currently fighting a law that would bar the government from hiring private contractors like CCA to run prisons. ... From 2013 through March, a subsidiary, CCA of Tennessee LLC, has paid Greenberg Traurig $350,000 to 'monitor issues pertaining to the construction and management of privately-operated prisons and detention facilities.' Giuliani joined the firm Jan. 19 as a senior advisor to the executive chairman and as chairman of the firm's cybersecurity, privacy and crisis management practice. In the first quarter of 2016, CCA paid his firm $20,000. Records for the second quarter have yet to be filed."

UPROAR OVER STATE HISTORIAN DOWNGRADE - Times Union's Paul Grondahl: "The normally placid pool of local historians has been roiled by a downgrading of the state historian position that critics consider an affront and a further diminishment of history's role in the wider culture. The controversy boiled over on the New York History blog, where commenters launched an attack on State Museum officials, who recently appointed Devin Lander, 38, of Wynantskill, as the 16th State Historian. The position was created in 1895. Their criticism centered on a restructuring of the State Museum's history department that placed Lander under Chief Curator of History Jennifer Lemak and Museum Director Mark Schaming instead of giving Lander full autonomy."

SCOOP - WSJ A1, "Trumped! Candidate Was Clinton Fan in 2008" (online headline: "Donald Trump Said Hillary Clinton Would 'Make a Good President' in 2008,") by Michael Rothfeld and Mark Maremont: "Donald Trump is attacking Hillary Clinton these days, but eight years ago, in the midst of the 2008 Democratic primary race, he said she would 'make a good president' and a lot of people thought pairing her with Barack Obama would be a 'dream ticket.' His kind words for Mrs. Clinton came in a previously unreported clip from 'Trumped!,' a syndicated radio feature that aired from 2004 to 2008 and consisted of a daily commentary of about 60 seconds from the real-estate mogul."

HOT TICKETS -- Hillary Clinton is hosting a high-dollar fundraiser tonight for supporters to see the Broadway hit Hamilton in New York. Attendees can watch the musical with HRC in a "preferred seat" for $5,000. "Event chairs" need to contribute $100,000 ... Hillary comes to D.C. on Thursday for a "Summer Celebration with Hillary" at Lee Satterfield and Patrick Steel's home. "Host" level is $27,000, but a "champion" ticket goes for $2,700.

--"Poll: Clinton struggles to make inroads with young Americans," by AP's Julie Pace and Emily Swanson -- Per a new GenForward poll: "The majority of the nation's younger blacks and Asian-Americans have a favorable impression of Clinton, but the presumptive Democratic nominee struggles with whites and Hispanics. Just 26 percent of young whites and 49 percent of Hispanics have a positive opinion of the former secretary of state. Both groups overwhelmingly say she is not trustworthy."


SKY'S THE LIMIT-"Tishman Speyer closes $707M deal on Long Island City office development," by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: "The de Blasio administration and Tishman Speyer have closed on a $707 million deal to develop two 27-story office towers in Long Island City, Queens, the two parties announced Monday morning. The 1.1 million square feet of space on Jackson Avenue will be split between pre-leased office space and 250,000 square feet for WeWork, the office sharing venture. Construction on the Raul De Armas-designed buildings will begin early next year and is expected to be finished in 2019, the city's Economic Development Corporation said. The project is expected to cost the city $65 million in benefits from the city's Industrial Development Agency, and is anticipated to bring in a net of $254 million in tax revenue for the city, according to public documents."

-"Brooklyn Reaches for the Sky," by Wall Street Journal's Josh Barbanel: "The Brooklyn Cultural District is getting a lot of new neighbors-all at once. Five rental towers are poised to bring more than 2,200 households to the streets that surround the Brooklyn Academy of Music. 'We are saying welcome to the neighborhood,' said Katy Clark, president of BAM. The area had once been a gritty expanse of empty and underused buildings divided by parking lots created when government programs decades ago cleared the sites in the name of urban renewal. The towers, set to open this summer and through next year, will turn an area that emptied out after the last curtain into 'a 24-7 neighborhood,' said Andrew Kalish, director of cultural development at the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership."

-"Vanbarton pays $104M for the Astor's retail on UWS," by The Real Deal's E.B. Solomont: "The Vanbarton Group dropped $103.5 million for valuable retail space at the Astor condominium on the Upper West Side. The Gary Tischler and Richard Coles-led investment firm snagged the retail condo unit at 235 West 75th Street, also known as 2139 Broadway, from Madison Capital and Prudential Real Estate Investors, according to property records filed with the city Monday. Vanbarton also took out a $67.5 million loan from Mesa West Capital, records show. At roughly 19,000 square feet, the retail space has 210 feet of frontage along the west side of Broadway, and frontage on West 75th and West 76th streets. Tenants include Barneys New York, Lululemon Athletic and L'Occitane."
