POLITICO New York Playbook: ANTI-TRUMP protests in Midtown -- CUOMO-DE BLASIO calculus after Dem debacle -- CHRISTINE QUINN on reliving history

11/10/2016 07:23 AM EDT

By Jimmy Vielkind in Albany and Azi Paybarah in Manhattan, with Addy Baird and Daniel Lippman

DEM DISASTER BOOSTS CUOMO - POLITICO New York's Jimmy Vielkind: His long-time friend Hillary Clinton was handed a stunning upset in her bid for the presidency. Republicans continue to control a majority in both houses of Congress. His efforts to help Democrats win the state Senate are sputtering toward failure. But on Tuesday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo may just have gotten the Democratic disaster he's been waiting for. Clinton's unexpected defeat will hit the reset button within the national Democratic Party and allow him to rise to the forefront for 2020. And continued Republican control of the state Senate - likely to be buttressed, again, by the chamber's Independent Democratic Conference - keeps a system in place that has worked for Cuomo during the last six years. "He never had it so good," said Hank Sheinkopf, a political consultant who advised the governor's 2014 re-election bid.

-- Times' J. David Goodman and William Neuman: "Tuesday's results also created a complicated calculus for Mr. Cuomo, who has long been close to the Clintons, and who campaigned on Mrs. Clinton's behalf this year. If Mr. Trump pursues hard-right policies in the White House, Mr. Cuomo could find himself one of a handful of liberal bulwarks against Washington. That would cheer some on the left. 'The problem is, a Republican-controlled State Senate would carry Trump's agenda,' said Bill Lipton, the political director of the Working Families Party. 'The governor didn't do enough to support Senate Democrats, but he can still press them to unite into a majority conference.' "

-- Bill de Blasio: "I commit to working with the new administration, positively and constructively, to rebuild our infrastructure, create more jobs, protect our residents and preserve the liberties that New Yorkers enjoy ... I take solace in the fact that the president is a dyed-in-the-wool New Yorker."

ANTI-TRUMP PROTESTS -- "'Not Our President': Protests Spread After Donald Trump's Election," Times' Christopher Mele and Annie Correal: "In New York, crowds converged at Trump Tower, on Fifth Avenue at 56th Street in Midtown Manhattan, where the president-elect lives. ... They chanted "Not our president" and "New York hates Trump" and carried signs that said, among other things, "Dump Trump." Restaurant workers in their uniforms briefly left their posts to cheer on the demonstrators.

The demonstrations forced streets to be closed, snarled traffic and drew a large police presence. They started in separate waves from Union Square and Columbus Circle and snaked their way through Midtown. Loaded dump trucks lined Fifth Avenue for two blocks outside Trump Tower as a form of protection.

Emanuel Perez, 25, of the Bronx, who works at a restaurant in Manhattan and grew up in Guerrero, Mexico, was among the many Latinos in the crowd. "I came here because people came out to protest the racism that he's promoting," he said in Spanish, referring to Mr. Trump. "I'm not scared for myself personally. What I'm worried about is how many children are going to be separated from their families. It will not be just one. It will be thousands of families."

-- "At least 8,000" in NYC, 'according to estimates.'" -- Daily News' John Silverstein, Andy Mai and Leonard Greene:

STATE SENATE WAITS ON LONG ISLAND - Newsday's Michael Gormley: "Democrats were still fighting for control of the State Senate on Wednesday with a candidate who had a 33-vote lead over a Republican incumbent in Nassau County, according to complete but unofficial results. With all precincts reporting, the state Board of Elections on Wednesday showed John Brooks, 66, of Seaford, a Republican running on the Democratic line, with 64,499 votes, while his opponent, Republican Sen. Michael Venditto (R-Massapequa), had 64,466 votes in the 8th Senate District in Nassau County. Absentee ballots have yet to be counted. 'John Brooks finished the night ahead and won the election,' said Senate Democratic spokesman Mike Murphy. 'The reality is there are majority Democrats in the Senate. . . . The Senate GOP took a premature victory lap.' If Brooks' win stands, each party would have 31 votes in a chamber in which 32 votes control legislation. Conservative Democrat Sen. Simcha Felder of Brooklyn, who has sat with the Republican conference, would be the tiebreaker."

-- More than 13,000 paper ballots will be counted in the Marcellino and Gaughran races that haven't been conceded yet. In the district in which Marcellino holds a 2,425-vote lead, 13,425 ballots were sent out, according to GOP election lawyer John Ciampoli. 7,921 of these have been returned so far. And in the district in which Venditto is trailing by 33 votes, 8,730 were sent out and 5,456 have been returned, according to Ciampoli.

WHAT NOW? -- After Trump's win, no clear answers for New York City's undocumented immigrants -- POLITICO New York's Gloria Pazmino: There were few answers in the immediate aftermath of the presidential election for New York City's three million immigrants and at least half a million undocumented immigrants on how Donald Trump's victory will affect their lives. Mayor Bill de Blasio, seeking to comfort disappointed New Yorkers on Wednesday, stopped short of providing any specific policy details or possible plans that his administration might consider to protect the hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants living in the city. De Blasio, speaking for less than five minutes in City Hall's Blue Room hours after Hillary Clinton had delivered her concession speech ... "We stand behind Lady Liberty with open arms to welcome immigrants and refugees. We always have, and we always will," de Blasio said.

-- Sanctuary city? The city currently has a law preventing federal immigration authorities from having officers in city jails, and a law which requires the NYPD and the Department of Correction to ignore federal detainer requests for people in custody unless a federal judge issues a warrant. The de Blasio administration also signed into law the city's first municipal identification program, which allowed thousands of undocumented people to obtain a legal form of identification for the first time. ... City officials did not provide details on what could happen to the city's status as sanctuary city - which Republicans have vowed to dismantle - or if there was any way to protect the city's open door, no questions asked policy regarding residents' immigration status.

-- Post's Joe Tacopina: "A proposal to ban Muslims from entering the United States appears to have been removed from Donald Trump's website. The statement, which first appeared last December, called for a 'total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on.' As of Wednesday evening, it was gone."

STILL PROBING -- Election results not altering Schneiderman's Trump investigations -- POLITICO New York's Colby Hamilton: Donald Trump's legal troubles in New York aren't going away any time soon, even as he secured enough electoral college votes to become president elect of the United States Tuesday. According to a spokeswoman with New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's office, there's no post-election change of plans for the case against Trump and his now-shuttered university. "The Trump University litigation continues to move through the appellate process," Amy Spitalnick, the AG spokeswoman, said in a statement. The case in New York is running in parallel to a federal case in California, the continued litigation of both meaning that for the first time in the modern era, a president will likely take the oath of office facing ongoing prosecution. An email sent to Trump spokespeople seeking comment was not returned. ... Schneiderman's office also continues to investigate the practices of the Trump Foundation. The AG's office told the foundation to stop fundraising practices in October, after finding it was out of compliance with its reporting to the New York, which the foundation agreed to do.

DEJA VU -- "Christine Quinn relived history as Clinton's presidential bid crumbled," by POLITICO's Laura Nahmias: "You know, I had some sense of, obviously how bad she would feel because she lost, but I also had a sense of how ... difficult it would be for her to face the reality, face the people she believes she let down," Quinn said, haltingly.

"She didn't let anybody down. I beat myself up. I didn't let anybody down, but you feel like you did. You feel like, when you're running to make history, that the community you're striving to make history for, in my case for women and the LGBT community, in her case women, you feel like you had an extra responsibility, and you feel an extra sense of having let that community down," she said.


The tide has turned -- Jim Rutenberg: "The news media's self-reflection on Wednesday brought to mind the awkward position Fox News found itself in four years ago, when it was criticized for creating an insular information bubble that led some viewers to believe Mitt Romney would defeat President Obama. That raised questions about Fox News's objectivity. Now it is mainstream news outlets, which Fox News so often portrays as liberally biased, that are facing a wave of skepticism."

No 'failure' for fourth estate -- Jack Shafer: "All that digging by the press corps meant a lot, and its message hit home. ... The election of Trump, then, can't be reduced to a 'failure' of the 'broken' press -- to lean on two worn-out descriptions of the craft. Nobody would ever say the American electorate 'failed' or proved itself 'broken' because it voted in numbers large enough to place a political monster in the White House. So the election of Trump doesn't render the many journalistic findings published during the campaign worthless. Journalism at its best can only provide a set of traffic advisories. It is not and it can't be an autopilot for life's trip."

The 'false equivalence' argument -- Kelsey Sutton reports: "At the heart of the criticism among some Clinton sympathizers and supporters in the media was a deep frustration about what they saw was a false balance in the media's framing of Clinton's shortcomings when compared to Trump's. In their eyes, balancing reporting on Trump's comments with reports on Clinton's use of a private email server tipped the scales in Trump's' favor by suggesting that both candidates' behavior was equally inappropriate."

POINTING FINGERS -- Polling? -- Washington Post's Philip Bump: "Where polls were further from the mark was at the state level. This likely happened for a variety of reasons, including the fact that there simply weren't a lot of state polls for much of the election. ... This was one weird, high-profile election out of thousands. It featured two exceptionally well-known and exceptionally disliked candidates facing off in the first national contest in an era of social media maturity."

OUCH -- NY faces $850M hole in budget if Obamacare is repealed -- POLITICO New York's Josefa Velasquez and Dan Goldberg: Fresh off a victory that gave them control of the White House and retained their grip on both houses of Congress, Republicans on Wednesday repeated their promise to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. How that will play out remains to be seen. In the mean time, health insurance for millions of people in New York and across the nation hangs in the balance. One thing seems clear for New York: if Republicans make good on that pledge, it could blow an $850 million hole in the state budget. The Cuomo administration took advantage of the Basic Health Plan, also called the Essential Plan, a section of the ACA that offers low-cost, subsidized health insurance to people who do not qualify for federal Medicaid assistance. Because New York State had been paying 100 percent of the costs for many people who did not qualify for federal Medicaid, the federal program saved the state $850 million per year. ... A spokesman for the state's budget office said it's "extremely premature for such speculation."

LACKAWANNA BURNS - Buffalo News' Aaron Besecker: "The massive blaze that started early Wednesday at the former Bethlehem Steel plant off Route 5 is under control, but still burning. Route 5 will remain closed until Thursday afternoon, Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz said. Nearby residents were also told to shelter in place overnight and keep windows and doors closed. Emergency officials at the site also advised not touching any debris from the plume. Frontier Central School District and St. Francis High School will be closed on Thursday. Mayor Geoffrey M. Szymanski said officials are meeting at 6 a.m. on Thursday to decide whether Lackawanna schools will be closed or not. At a press conference Wednesday evening, Buffalo Fire Commissioner Garnell W. Whitfield Jr. said the fire is contained to the site, but the blaze is still not out."

EAT BEAT -- "NIMBYs Are Annoyed About Paulie Gee's New Greenpoint Slice Joint Opening," by Eater's Serena Dai: "Uber-popular Greenpoint pizzeria Paulie Gee's pizza-by-the-slice offshoot is facing a roadblock in the path to opening. Owner Paulie Giannone wants to open Paulie Gee's Slice Joint at 110 Franklin St. in Greenpoint, this time serving classic New York slices instead of the inventive wood-fired pies he's known for at his flagship. But the residents of nearby Noble Street are blasting Giannone's request for a liquor license - saying that it will disrupt the street. Nearly 150 people have signed a petition against it. Giannone is requesting a beer, wine, and cider license for the new restaurant, which he says will be an opportunity for people to take pizzas home. He's told Eater that it will have 'the spirit is an old '60s New York slice joint,' with bright orange booths, a bar, and simple slices like plain and pepperoni. But residents, who addressed a petition to Brooklyn Community Board 1, still say that the new business would be 'too loud' and bring 'excessive noise, drunk behavior, garbage' to the street."

TECHNOLOGICAL DIFFICULTIES -- "Uber rival Karhoo shuts down after blowing through a reported $250M in funding," by TechCrunch's Ingrid Lunden: "Karhoo - a company that wanted to take on Uber by pulling together prices and offerings from competing car services into a single app - [has] announced that it is shutting down its service and looking for 'the next steps for its business' after running out of money and failing to raise more... Karhoo, founded by Daniel Ishag (who stepped down as CEO several days ago), had never publicly disclosed how much it raised. A report in the FT last year written with cooperation from the company claimed it was around $250 million with ambitions to raise $1 billion in total. (CrunchBase further notes two rounds, with an undisclosed amount coming in January.) We've had tips from sources disputing that funding figure, however, saying it was much lower... Karhoo was active in London with starting trials in New York and ambitions also to extend to Singapore. It also had an R&D operation in Tel Aviv, Israel. In London, Karhoo claimed a network of 200,000 cars, with partners including the likes of Addison Lee and ComCab in the UK. In its New York trial, meanwhile, it had some 10,000 cars and its partners included Carmel. Karhoo's business model was based around it taking a 10 percent commission on rides booked through its platform, providing a competitive edge on Uber's 20-25 percent."

ON STAGE -- "Review: Election Night With the Gabriels, a Play in Real Time," by NYT's Ben Brantley: "It was not, as was mentioned several times by the friendly, anxious people preparing dinner, an evening that anyone should spend alone. And though they often broke my heart as I listened to them trying so hard to sound hopeful, I am grateful to have spent Tuesday night with the members of the Gabriel family of Rhinebeck, N.Y. They ...put me in touch with feelings that I had been trying to avoid all day. ... While millions of my fellow citizens gazed like frustrated fortunetellers into onscreen maps of the United States turning shades of red and blue, certain New York theatergoers chose to hunker down with the Gabriels for election night. This opportunity was graciously provided by the Public Theater, where 'Women of a Certain Age - Play 3 of the Gabriels: Election Year in the Life of One Family' opened on (and is set on) the very night that Americans went to the polls to select their next president. The Gabriels are the tenderly wrought creations of the playwright Richard Nelson... And, yes, these women do talk occasionally of Mrs. Clinton, whom they wish were a little closer to perfection than she, being mortal, has turned out to be. Karin has even put together a one-woman show that traces the chapters of Mrs. Clinton's life, to be performed (and not without irony) later that evening." Brantley gave the play the NYT Critics' Pick stamp of approval. More at NYT:

REAL ESTATE, with POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg:

-- "Gateway tunnel builder expresses hope for Trump administration," by POLITICO New York's Dana Rubinstein: "The day after Donald Trump won the presidency, the guy running the most important transportation project in the New York metropolitan region, if not the country, struck an optimistic tone when asked what Trump's presidency might portend for the project's fate. 'The Gateway Program partners are pleased that President-Elect Trump has identified infrastructure investment as one of his top policy priorities,' said John Porcari, interim executive director of the Gateway Development Corporation, the federal and state group spearheading the more-than-$20 billion project that is supposed to, among other things, string a new rail tunnel between New Jersey and New York City."

-- "President-elect Trump unlikely to hurt real estate industry that made him," by Crain's Joe Anuta and Daniel Geiger: "Donald Trump's upset presidential victory on Tuesday Nov. 8 sent ripples across financial markets and shocked the country's political establishment, but the city's real estate industry, where the Trump family made its fortune, remained unshaken. Several industry executives predicted a Trump presidency would do little to upend years of rising real estate prices, foreign investment, and favorable tax breaks. 'We have a New York City real estate guy in the White House,' said Hauspurg, the chairman and CEO of the commercial real estate brokerage Eastern Consolidated. 'There's a sense that he's not going to pass policies that will hurt business, especially the one he came from.' Among the concerns of a Trump presidency were promises he made during the campaign to stop the offshoring of American jobs, a pledge that his critics said could lead to trade tariffs and staunch the global flow of capital and investment."

-- Market trend: Landlord concessions doubled over the past year in the Manhattan rental market, according to a monthly DouglasElliman report released Wednesday. While luxury market prices went down, price gains were seen elsewhere in the entry market last month. The median rental price went up slightly to $3,400 and the average price increased 3.1 percent to $4,223 during the same period. Read the report here:
