POLITICO New York Playbook: POLL: Cuomo should lead, but from Albany -- ALEC BALDWIN on not being Trump -- Second Avenue Subway 'Museum'

12/21/2016 07:37 AM EDT

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

NEW YORKERS FOR CUOMO (STAYING PUT) - New York Daily News' Kenneth Lovett: "While New Yorkers want Gov. Cuomo to help lead the charge against President-elect Donald Trump's policies, they are not sold on him running for President in four years, a new poll found. State voters by a 50% to 43% margin say they'd like to see Cuomo become a national leader against Trump, according to a Quinnipiac University poll. But by a 56% to 36% margin, they don't want him to run for President in 2020. A majority also doesn't believe he'd make a good President, though many believe it would be good for the state if he ran, the poll found. Meanwhile, Cuomo, whose administration has been rocked by a pay-to-play scandal, has a job approval rating of 49% compared with 34% who disapprove. It was 50% to 40% in the last Quinnipiac poll in July."

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "The lawyers can give you updates on anything that's going on with that." -- Mayor Bill de Blasio, responding to a reporter who asked about the grand jury probes into his administration, which the mayor's spokesman immediately said was an inaccurate answer and that City Hall would not allow reporters to talk to "the lawyers" the mayor referenced. via @ChayesMatthew and De Blasio press secretary @ErikFPhillips:

TRANSITIONS - Sean Magers emails friends and colleagues: "I wanted to send a quick note to let you know that I will be leaving Congressman Tonko's office at the end of the month.

AS A MESSAGE TO TRUMP, DE BLASIO PUSHES ENROLLMENT IN OBAMACARE -- POLITICO New York's Dan Goldberg: Insisting that an Affordable Care Act enrollment surge would represent a repudiation of President-elect Donald Trump and Republican priorities, Mayor Bill de Blasio on Tuesday urged New Yorkers to sign up for health insurance over the next several weeks. "We as New Yorkers have to fight back, and one of the best ways to fight back is to sign up the maximum number of people under the Affordable Care Act," de Blasio said during a press conference at Gouverneur Health in lower Manhattan. The mayor said he would like 50,000 more New Yorkers insured either in private health insurance plans or through Medicaid. That's about 10 percent of the total number of people who remain eligible for health insurance and are unenrolled, the mayor said. About 1.6 million New York City residents have signed up through the state-run exchange, New York State of Health, through Jan. 31, 2016, according to a report from the state's Department of Health. De Blasio's push comes one month before Trump and a new Congress, intent on repealing Obamacare, are sworn into office. The mayor said Obamacare was President Obama's "number one accomplishment" and enrolling, or helping people enroll, was a civic duty for those disappointed by the election.

CUOMO SENDS MORE TROOPERS TO NYC -- 'Insiders say the move is an Extension of His Ongoing Feud with the Mayor' -- NY1's Zack Fink: "State troopers will soon be more visible in New York City with Governor Cuomo deploying of them to patrol state-owned facilities including MTA bridges and tunnels. In an interview Monday night on 'Inside City Hall' de Blasio downplayed any suggestion this was part of his feud with the governor. But he noted that he and the Governor have not spoken about the plan. 'I assume what we all believe in and certainly commissioner [James] O'Neill believes in is a division of labor where state police work all around the state including on facilities - MTA facilities for example owned by the state,' the mayor said. ... But insiders say there were tensions between the mayor and the governor over this because Cuomo felt the state police did not receive enough credit in the aftermath. People close to the Governor say the increase in manpower for 'Troop NYC' is actually not new. The 150 additional troopers were announced in October. ... While the Cuomo administration downplays any tensions with the mayor over this particular issue, it's hard not to view some of these unilateral actions as stick in De Blasio's eye from Cuomo. Just last week, the two leaders battled via press release over the fate of a wayward deer that ended up dead."


-- NEXT STEPS FOR CHRISTIE'S NEWSPAPER 'REVENGE BILL': From my piece this morning: "New Jersey publishers will continue their fight against what has become known as Gov. Chris Christie's newspaper 'revenge bill,' emboldened by this week's failure among lawmakers to rally enough support to bring the controversial legislation to a vote, but ever wary of its potential, they say, to obliterate tens of millions of dollars in annual revenue and hundreds of journalism jobs. 'We're not slowing down,' Rich Vezza, publisher of New Jersey's largest newspaper, The Star-Ledger, told POLITICO. 'We're very concerned. We know we've got a governor who is actively pushing this. ... Since day one he's gone after the press, and I think Bridgegate just pushed him over the edge.'"

-- ROGER AILES 'FINALLY ANNOYED' WITH COVERAGE OF SEXUAL HARASSMENT ALLEGATIONS : From yesterday's gem of a Daily News item describing a surprise phone call from the disgraced former Fox News chief: "Ailes called the Daily News' MediaBlast Monday -- to complain about a headline. 'I was hoping you would be a gentleman and apologize,' Ailes said, citing MediaBlast's Sunday column, which compared the latest allegations of sexual harassment against him with the decline and salacious details behind the fall of Viacom chief Sumner Redstone. The headline he hated: 'Gropey old men.' ... MediaBlast asked Ailes why -- out of the mountain of stories about his alleged behavior -- was he responding specifically to The News. He said because he had read Sunday's column, it was now in front of him and he was 'finally annoyed.'"

-- HOW DOES ALEC BALDWIN PULL OFF HIS UNCANNY DONALD TRUMP IMPERSONATION? "It has been suggested," Sarah Maslin Nir writes in her New York Times piece about Baldwin's wildly popular 'SNL' skits, "that Mr. Baldwin, 58, is uniquely able to portray Mr. Trump -- and to rankle him -- because of their similarities. In 2011, Mr. Baldwin mulled running for mayor of New York City. They can both appear thin-skinned. Antagonized by paparazzi and feeling harassed by what he says are false accusations that he uttered slurs, Mr. Baldwin has at times publicly denounced the media. On Twitter, he can be pugilistic, notably with Mr. Trump and with his brother Stephen Baldwin, over their divergent political views. Such a comparison profoundly pains Mr. Baldwin."

SCHNEIDERMAN BOOSTS DE BLASIO - POLITICO New York's Gloria Pazmino: Attorney General Eric Schneiderman filed an amicus brief Tuesday evening supporting the city in an ongoing lawsuit over data collected by the municipal ID card program. In the motion, Schneiderman argues in part that publicly releasing any information obtained through the program will put thousands at risk of identity thefts and hate crimes. "The threat posed by the public disclosure of nearly 900,000 New Yorkers' personal information is a matter not only of local concern but also of state concern, as it greatly increases the risk of identity theft and of hate crimes, and the prevention and prosecution of crime is a quintessential state concern," the brief reads. Two Republican Assembly members from Staten Island, Nicole Malliotakis and Ron Castorina, announced earlier this month initiated a lawsuit against the city to prevent City Hall from destroying records related to the program. The lawsuit was in response to a promise by Mayor Bill de Blasio to purge the records to protect the thousands of undocumented immigrants who have applied to the card.

MONEY BAGS: "City projected to end year with $439 million budget surplus despite slowed tax earnings" -- Daily News' Erin Durkin:

TOP COURT RULES ON SOUND RECORDINGS - The Hollywood Reporter's Eriq Gardner: "In a decision that could save satellite radio giant SiriusXM at least $5 million and represent a huge relief to terrestrial radio operators and others who broadcast older music, a New York appeals court on Tuesday concluded that New York's common law doesn't protect the public performance of pre-1972 sound recordings and therefore broadcasters don't have to pay. The decision comes in one of the many putative class action lawsuits brought by Flo & Eddie of the Turtles, best known for their 1967 hit, 'Happy Together.' The duo filed litigation in New York, California and Florida with the contention that SiriusXM needed their authorization to play their songs. Because their works were authored before Feb. 15, 1972, when sound recordings became protected under federal copyright law, they sued under various state laws to be compensated for what was played on stations like SiriusXM Radio's '60s on 6."

CONTROVERSY ON THE EAT BEAT -- "Whole Foods Slammed For $8 Chopped Cheese Sold From Columbus Cart," by Eater's Serena Dai: "A Whole Foods in Manhattan is facing backlash for serving a chopped cheese sandwich that costs far more than it typically does in a bodega - and for selling it from a cart that's literally a reference to Christopher Columbus. The Harlem-born bodega staple, made with ground beef, onions, melted cheese, and more on a hero, has become a symbol for gentrification and cultural appropriation in the city recently. It usually costs around $4 or $5, but the Columbus Circle Whole Foods is selling it for $8. It's also being made at a cart called "1492," the year that Christopher Columbus set sail.

It's nothing new for upscale restaurants to sell typically low-cost foods for higher prices. (See BEC, a Chelsea restaurant dedicated to serving bacon egg and cheese sandwiches. A classic one costs $8.50.) But the chopped cheese in particular has sparked discussions about privilege this year. After Insider put up a video calling the chopped cheese "one cool thing" that most New Yorkers don't know about, the publication was criticized for ignoring the people who grew up eating it. YouTube personality Jeffrey Almonte called Insider a modern day Columbus in a popular reaction video. April Bloomfield and Ken Friedman's new Upper West Side restaurant started selling a version for $11, and the Times wrote a feature about the whole controversy.

So Whole Foods isn't the first upscale purveyor to get in on a fancy chopped cheese. However, they are the first ones to literally reference Christopher Columbus while doing so."

AT THE (SUBWAY) MUSEUM -- "Is the Second Avenue Subway the Best New Museum in New York City?" by Architectural Digest's Becca Sobel: "New York's Upper East Side-home to historic Museum Mile-has a new permanent installation thanks to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's 31-year-old Arts & Design Office and its $4.5 million public art budget. Governor Andrew M. Cuomo recently revealed works by artists Sarah Sze, Chuck Close, Vik Muniz, and Jean Shin on the walls of the soon-to-be-opened 96th, 86th, 72nd, and 63rd Street stations of the Second Avenue subway line. Using tiles and mosaics, the artists (who each have a station devoted to their work) have crafted large-scale public art that recalls the design of the city's other subway stations. While the talents have all created work in their individual styles, the subjects of their installations are inspired by Gotham an. Sarah Sze's 'Blueprint for a Landscape' evokes the hustle and bustle of the city; Chuck Close's 'Subway Portraits' mosaic features famed New York artist Kara Walker; Vik Muniz's 'Perfect Strangers' is a life-size depiction of subway riders waiting at the edge of the platform; and Jean Shin's 'Elevated' reimagines the Second Avenue elevated train before it was demolished in the 1940s. Each artist pays tribute to the city and its people. On January 1, with the swipe of your MetroCard, you'll be able to see these works in person at what could be called Manhattan's newest museum."

ON BROADWAY -- "'Dear Evan Hansen' Is Shaping Up to Be a Hit," by NYT's Michael Paulson: "The new musical 'Dear Evan Hansen' grossed more than $1 million at the box office last week, crossing the symbolic milestone for the first time and suggesting that the show is on its way to becoming a rare Broadway hit. The musical, about an anxious adolescent whose social status improves after the suicide of a high school classmate, has benefited from strong reviews and positive word of mouth. And, in another sign that it is breaking through in a crowded theater season, it has begun attracting a stream of celebrities - Scarlett Johansson was at the first preview; Zendaya has seen it twice; and other audience members have included Tina Fey, Carole King, Emma Stone, Calvin Klein and Mindy Kaling. "Dear Evan Hansen," with songs by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, a book by Steven Levenson and direction by Michael Greif, had multiple obstacles to overcome. It is an original musical with an unfamiliar title in a market dominated by adaptations and revivals; it has no major celebrities in its cast; and the subject matter is dark.

-- "But the show built a fan base through pre-Broadway productions at Arena Stage in Washington and Second Stage off Broadway, and a powerhouse performance by 23-year-old Ben Platt (best known for the 'Pitch Perfect' movies) in the title role has helped make the show a must-see. The show grossed $1,051,248 during the week that ended Sunday, according to figures released Monday by the Broadway League. That is a strong showing for any Broadway production, but all the more so because 'Dear Evan Hansen' has fewer seats to sell than most - it is playing at the 984-seat Music Box Theater, which is smaller than the houses generally used for Broadway musicals. (By way of comparison: 'Paramour,' the Cirque du Soleil musical, is playing in an 1,896-seat house - nearly twice the size - but nonetheless grossed slightly less than 'Dear Evan Hansen' last week.)"

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

-"Court tosses lawsuit against city over Kingsbridge Armory development," by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: "A plan to develop a massive sports complex at the Kingsbridge Armory in the Bronx, which has been beset by financial troubles, political spats and legal battles, hit another roadblock Tuesday, when a judge threw out a lawsuit against the de Blasio administration. Kingsbridge National Ice Center, the company planning the armory's redevelopment, had sued the city Economic Development Corporation in April, claiming the agency had breached its contract by not turning over the lease to the property. The city agency, which owns the 750,000-square-foot vacant armory, refused to allow entry to the company until it provided $158 million for the first phase of development. The development firm, which is counting on a combination of private and state funds, argued the city was unjustly withholding the lease, thereby hindering its fundraising abilities."

-"City's East Harlem plan would allow retail development on NYCHA properties," by Crain's Joe Anuta: "The de Blasio administration's plan to rezone East Harlem would allow nearly half-a-million square feet of retail to be developed in three public-housing complexes, city documents show. The Department of City Planning has proposed a rezoning for roughly 95 blocks in East Harlem, which would allow commercial retail development in parts of the Taft, Jefferson and Johnson houses that border four major thoroughfares. The areas proposed for rezoning currently are open spaces and parking lots running along Park, Lexington, Third and Second avenues between East 115th Street and East 112th Street. A NYCHA spokeswoman said there are no specific plans to develop the sites. But City Planning said that by rezoning the edges of the complexes, the authority would have the leeway to come up with a more targeted plan down the road, though it would likely only use a fraction of the 489,000 square feet that the rezoning could make available."

-"Vance, s call $10K fine in construction death 'Monopoly money,'" by POLITICO New York's Colby Hamilton: "Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr. and Department of Investigation Commissioner Mark s issued a joint statement calling the $10,000 fine of a construction firm found guilty in the death of a worker earlier this year 'Monopoly money,' and urged lawmakers to raise the maximum fines for corporations. In June, Harco Construction LLC was found guilty of manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide and reckless endangerment in the death of 22-year-old Carlos Moncayo. In what Vance's office called a landmark victory, acting Supreme Court Justice Kirke Bartley Jr. found that the construction firm and its subcontractors failed to heed repeated warnings that safety protocols were not being followed at a construction site at 9-19 Ninth Avenue in Manhattan's Meatpacking District neighborhood. On April 6, 2015, an unsecured trench wall collapsed and killed Moncayo."
