CLOSE TO CLINTON -- "For Clinton, Sharply Different Ties to Cuomo and de Blasio Camps: While governor keeps front-runner close, the mayor continues to distance himself " -- WSJ's Erica Orden and Josh Dawsey: "Since Hillary Clinton announced her presidential campaign, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has endorsed her, talked to her by phone and pledged to help her bid, all while his family has raised funds for her. Meanwhile, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has withheld his endorsement, praised her Democratic rival and had little contact. Now, his aides say, he wants her to appear to explain her ideas on income inequality at a presidential forum he is planning to host for candidates this fall. He is expected to ramp up his push for progressive ideas, holding a series of events this fall as she campaigns.
-- "The day after Mr. de Blasio praised Mr. Sanders on CNN, Mrs. Clinton publicly backed the Cuomo administration's planned $15 minimum wage for fast-food workers-a fact Mr. Cuomo's staff then promoted. ... the de Blasio dynamic is likely to grow even more tortured: In coming months Mr. de Blasio is expected to host a presidential forum on income inequality, to which he plans to invite both Democrats and Republicans, an adviser said. Such an event is likely to highlight that Mrs. Clinton, who has faced skepticism about her progressive credentials, has yet to count as an ally the leading liberal voice in her home state." http://goo.gl/h3lcuj
-- Flashback, Q poll, 8/5: "Do you think Bill de Blasio's involvement in national issues is or is not distracting him from his duties as Mayor?" Yes, distracting: Total: 53% - Dems: 47% - White: 61% - Black: 37% - Hisp: 60% http://goo.gl/o3X3Ky
CRITICIZING A CITY HALL HIRE -- Post's Michael Gartland: "Fellow Democrats yesterday slammed Mayor de Blasio's decision to create a $150,000 job to promote his immigration agenda nationwide - a post handed to Stephanie Yazgi, his aide's girlfriend. 'It does raise questions when you don't advertise the position and you're hiring the partner or relative of someone in your administration,' state Sen. Tony Avella (D-Queens) said of Yazgi, 38, becoming the national campaign director of the Mayor's Office of Immigrant Affairs.
'It has the appearance of impropriety.' ... Dick Dadey of watchdog group Citizens Union called on the mayor to provide a full explanation. 'Regardless of one's qualifications, whenever a relation of a senior mayoral aide is hired, it should be the result of a transparent and competitive process,' he said. 'And when the switch is made to use public funds to employ a well-connected person, the bar for hiring becomes even higher.'" http://goo.gl/XAYF5f

CLINTON'S CASH -- "The top 30 ZIP codes fueling Hillary Clinton's cash machine," by Politico's Daniel Lippman: "Clinton raised more than $3.6 million across 13 different ZIP codes in Manhattan alone. ... She raised $1.5 million from just five ZIP codes on the old-money Upper East Side ... [where] prominent donors include Steven Rattner ... Robert Rubin ... Lewis Cullman ... John Catsimatidis ... and Tom Glocer ... Two ZIP codes on the Upper West Side ... gave $806,000 to Clinton. In the 10023 ZIP that stretches from West 60th to West 76th, the donors that gave almost $415,000 included Kati Marton ... Ruth Porat ... Kathleen Begala ... and author Letty Pogrebin ... In Chelsea ... Clinton raised almost $343,000. She also raked in $158,000 from Greenwich Village and $179,000 from 10013, which encompasses parts of Tribeca, Little Italy and Soho. Not included on the list? The Brooklyn Heights ZIP code of 11201, where the Clinton campaign headquarters at One Pierrepont Plaza is located." http://politi.co/1PoFXDZ
HAMPTONS REPORT -- "Bill and Hillary Clinton spending $100K on Hamptons rental," by Post's Emily Smith: "The Clintons are renting a four-bedroom home from Republican art collector Andre Nasser and his real estate guru wife, Lois, at 44 Broadview Road - a hidden cul-de-sac in Amagansett that boasts wealthy neighbors, including Harvey Weinstein." http://pge.sx/1DPhhDq
MEDIA MORNING -- "Louboutin stiletto gets stuck in Condé Nast escalator," by Post's Stephanie Smith: "Condé Nast's shiny escalators ground to a halt when a Christian Louboutin stiletto got stuck in the grate. One editor must have been walking around like 'the Cinderella of fashion' Thursday when her black Louboutin shoe wedged in the escalator at the company's 1 WTC headquarters. Photos of the abandoned, lone, red-soled heel surfaced on Instagram ... A Condé rep told us, 'We're doing everything we can to save the shoe.'" http://pge.sx/1J7RR41

DATA DU JOUR -- "Subway Was Delayed Almost 500,000 Times Last Year," by NYMag's Jen Kirby: "The subway's 'on-time performance' ... averaged 74 percent on weekdays last year, down from a little more than 80 percent in 2013. Overall, the subways recorded nearly 500,000 delays. ... The 4 train is the worst ... with more than 50,000 weekday delays and an on-time performance of less than 50 percent. The rest of the overcrowded Lexington Avenue line also fared poorly, and the 2 train only notched an on-time rate of 51 percent. Not including the shuttles, the L train was the surprise winner; the train got to its last stop punctually more than 93 percent of the time." http://nym.ag/1J7ROVU
SPEED READ -- "Taxi king of New York admits he slammed young wife against wall," by Post's Rebecca Rosenberg: "The so-called taxi king of New York took a plea deal Thursday in Manhattan court for slamming his beautiful young wife against a wall weeks before she filed for divorce. Gene Freidman, 44, who owns more taxi medallions than anyone in the city, copped to harassment as a violation, not a crime, for the March 3, 2015, attack on Sandra Freidman." http://bit.ly/1WopwMs
CUOMO WON'T ATTEND TUNNEL PROJECT MEETING WITH FEDS-Bloomberg's Freeman Klopott: "New York Governor Andrew Cuomo won't attend a meeting with U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx to discuss reviving Amtrak's Gateway tunnel project under the Hudson River. Foxx is set to be joined by Governor Chris Christie and U.S. Senator Cory Booker, both of New Jersey, in a meeting next week to discuss the $16 billion tunnel proposed by Amtrak in February 2011. The tube would connect New Jersey commuters to Manhattan and serve the Northeast Corridor rail line from Boston to Washington. Beth DeFalco, a Cuomo spokeswoman, said in an e-mail that Cuomo isn't planning to attend." http://bloom.bg/1UFXRVx
CUOMO RENT PROTECTIONS WEAKER THAN PATAKI-The Real Deal: "Governor Andrew Cuomo pushed through an inflation-adjusted vacancy-decontrol threshold lower than the one Governor George Pataki put in place in 1997 because political backing for stronger rent protections has dwindled over the last 18 years, according to tenant advocates. The waning power can be traced back to Pataki's decision to reinstitute vacancy deregulation in 1997, allowing apartments to become market rate when unit rents hit $2,000 ($2,973 in today's dollars, adjusted for inflation), advocates told WNYC. Cuomo set the limit at $2,700 a few weeks ago." http://bit.ly/1DR3JqF
MCCRAY'S JURY DUTY -- News' John Marzulli, Jennifer Fermino and Larry McShane: "The city's First Lady Chirlane McCray bailed out on jury duty Thursday - and her one-time Brooklyn neighbors think she's guilty of dodging her civic duty. McCray's visit to Brooklyn Federal Court ended shortly after she claimed a busy schedule made her service impossible, sources told the Daily News. Hours later, City Hall was busy backpedaling after Mayor de Blasio said his wife was returning to jury duty in two months and court sources insisted she suggested a three-year pass from serving. 'The mayor was saying that she is ready and eager to serve as early as October, not that she is already scheduled,' McCray spokeswoman Erin White finally clarified. ... A check of McCray's schedule showed just one public appearance so far this month: a media roundtable on mental illness.
-- "Before the first couple moved to Gracie Mansion on the Upper East Side, their Park Slope home address put them squarely in the Eastern District of New York ... she instead received a pass because she no longer lives in Brooklyn, with her next jury call slated for 2018 ... A courthouse source said McCray was removed from the juror rolls in Brooklyn after her Thursday appearance. And it was McCray who suggested the 2018 date for her return to jury duty, sources said. McCray was apparently unaware she had a geographic excuse to escape jury duty when she brought up her lack of free time." http://goo.gl/CFpLpE
SUMMER OF QUINN -- Christine Quinn emails about her 'amazing' post-election experiences -- POLITICO New York's Dana Rubinstein: In a lengthy email to supporters of her campaign, Quinn described the several "amazing" experiences she's had since losing the Democratic primary. The email is Quinn's first communique from the Quinn for New York account since she lost the election, according to a former campaign aide.
"It has been awhile since we've chatted, but I wanted to let you know that I haven't stopped fighting and delivering for the progressive values we share," the email begins. "Because your support and friendship over the years has meant so much to me, I wanted to take a moment to share with you some of what I have been up to these past few months." As she notes in the email, Quinn completed a fellowship at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government and has since been working as a special advisor to Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

DE BLASIO LINKS COMPLAINTS TO MEDIA COVERAGE -- POLITICO New York's Azi Paybarah: Mayor Bill de Blasio acknowledged Thursday that there has been an increase in complaints about the homeless, but said that's because of the recent media attention the issue has received and that the number of homeless people in the city is actually dropping.
-- "I think the media has put a lot of attention on this issue lately, more than previously," de Blasio said at an unrelated press conference in the Bronx. "I'm not sure that the attention given is proportionate to what's happening. I think it's caused people to be more and more concerned." As of Aug. 9, there had been 20,242 calls to 311 about homeless people so far this year, compared to 25,357 calls for all of 2014, DNAinfo reported. In 2013, there were 21,882 calls about homelessness. http://goo.gl/2P5Iys
HOUSING DEBATE -- "Show Me a Hero," the new mini series about a housing fight in Yonkers, from the creator of the Wire, David Simon, is the launchpad to talk about differing views on housing in New York City. Times' Ginia Bellafante: "In New York there are those, like Brad Lander, a progressive Brooklyn city councilman, who believe that a healthy city cannot be sustained if classes exist in isolation from one another. When affordable housing is built, essentially it should be built so that the poor live among the better off. ... On the other side of the debate are those, like Alicia Glen, the deputy mayor for housing and economic development, who believe that in a place like New York - where the supply of affordable apartments falls so woefully short of demand - it is our moral obligation to build wherever we can. Is it necessary that the janitor live down the hall or across the street from the tax lawyer? Ms. Glen would say it is not." http://goo.gl/QiyVB0
BAG BILL IS BACK -- POLITICO New York's David Giambusso: City Council members took to the streets Thursday to promote legislation that would impose a 10-cent fee on all plastic bags, a measure designed to discourage plastic bag use citywide. "Everyone agrees we should do something about plastic bags," Councilman Brad Lander said as he and several other members handed out free, reusable canvas bags along Broadway, outside City Hall. Lander, chief sponsor of the legislation, was joined by environmental protection committee chair Costa Constantinides, sanitation committee chair Antonio Reynoso, Councilman Mark Treyger and environmental advocates to drum up support for the bill. http://politi.co/1EpJcVh
BATHROOM RULES -- Associated Press: "A bill has been introduced in New York City that could soon force businesses to convert some of their bathrooms to gender-neutral facilities. The legislation was introduced Thursday by Council Member Daniel Dromm. The proposed bill changes the wording of some city codes to remove regulations that require plumbers to create separate washrooms for each sex. The law would mainly require businesses to change the signage on single-occupancy restrooms. It does not affect multi-stall lavatories. Comptroller Scott Stringer, whose office helped craft the bill, has said businesses would essentially only need to purchase a sign to comply with the law." http://goo.gl/M2BmJj
THE TALK OF WALL STREET -- "Wall Street's Gilded Maternity Perk: Nannies Fly Free," by Bloomberg's Devin Banerjee: "KKR & Co. ... is rolling out a new perk in the struggle to hire and retain talent: flying nannies. Billionaire co-founders Henry Kravis and George Roberts in May extended the company's leave time for new parents and added a benefit allowing them to bring a new child and caregiver on business trips, paid for by KKR. ... Across the 10 biggest buyout shops, 9 out of 10 senior managers are men, ... In investment banking, women hold about 16 percent of senior positions ... In venture capital, the number is about 15 percent." http://bloom.bg/1hBugyg

REAL ESTATE -- MANDATORY UPDATE-"Mayor backs off estimate for mandatory inclusionary zoning," by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: "Mayor Bill de Blasio on Thursday backed off his campaign estimate that mandatory inclusionary zoning would create 50,000 units of affordable housing. Speaking at an unrelated press conference, the mayor simply said the policy-which he recently unveiled and will officially introduce for consideration next month-would be a 'crucial building block' in his overall goal of building 80,000 affordable units and preserving another 120,000 over a decade. ...

The two buyers wanted to be in the same building and 'saw this as an opportunity to create unique spaces together,' said Ramin Kamfar, CEO of Bluerock Real Estate, which is developing the project with Victor Group. Mr. Kamfar declined to identify the buyers but said they are American. Both sales closed last week." http://on.wsj.com/1NeTAX3
