CUOMO AND DE BLASIO FIND COMMON GROUND ON TOPLESS WOMEN- WSJ's Mike Vilensky: "After months of friction over everything from housing to Legionnaires' disease, Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio have found a common cause: reining in the topless women in Times Square. Mr. Cuomo spoke out against the painted, bare-breasted women on Wednesday, the day after Mr. de Blasio made similar remarks. For tips, the women pose with passersby for photographs. The governor described a situation bleaker than the mayor did, saying the women invoked a time in New York City history when sordidness reigned. 'Forty-Second Street was a symbol of degradation,' Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat, told TV station NY1. Mr. Cuomo said the women were breaking the law and vowed to take action but didn't specify what that would be. The governor and the mayor may finally be on the same page, but civil-rights attorneys and New York historians questioned Mr. Cuomo's stance."

-- Murky grounds -- POLITICO New York's Dana Rubinstein and Laura Nahmias: "It's possible, and I sound like I'm being an accommodationist here, it could be that de Blasio and Cuomo are both partially correct and partially incorrect," Siegel said. "It's conceivable that if the women are doing it not as a commercial enterprise, then it's protected, but if they're doing it as a commercial enterprise then they could be regulated." He said city officials were pandering on the issue, and suggested a better way to handle the problem in Times Square would be to try to educate both the desnudas and tourists about their rights in public spaces.

-- Daylight between leaders -- NY1's Grace Rauh: "Unlike the governor, though, the mayor seems to recognize that what these women are doing is not technically illegal. Women have the right to be topless in New York City, and panhandling, as long as it is not aggressive, is also permitted by law. The mayor said the city will look for appropriate ways to regulate the practice."

DE BLASIO CEDES TURF ON HORSE ISSUE -- Councilman calls it 'strange' -- POLITICO New York's Gloria Pazmino: Mayor Bill de Blasio, who had made a campaign pledge to ban the carriages from Central Park his first week in office, said he still wants the industry banned - but for the first time since making the promise, he signaled that the ban's fate is in the Council's hands.

"I think ultimately you are going to see an end of the horse carriage industry in this city, but we have to do this through the City Council, where there is a wide range of views," de Blasio told Lehrer in a wide-ranging interview. The mayor also fielded listener calls and discussed progress on the universal pre-K program, affordable housing, rising water rates and the taxi industry. But so far, the administration hasn't succeeded in shoring up support among Council members, who remain largely undecided on the proposal, which would take several steps to phase out the carriages by 2016 and give their drivers an opportunity to drive green cabs instead. Only a minority of the members have come out in support.

DE BLASIO vs. CITY COUNCIL -- Sept. 17 softball game open to the public -- S.I. Advance's Anna Sanders: "City Hall will take over the home of the Staten Island Yankees next month for a second softball face-off between the de Blasio administration and members of the City Council. The game has been set for the night of Sept. 17 at Richmond County Bank Ballpark in St. George after a Council meeting that afternoon. The match is expected to be open to the public. ... De Blasio's team was defeated in last year's matchup at MCU Park in Coney Island 17 to 13. The Council coasted to victory after Minority Leader Steven Matteo (R-Mid-Island) hit a grand slam in the second inning. The Council's most valuable player of the night, Matteo also fielded de Blasio's first and only hit."

HILLARY'S HAMPTONS HOUSE -- "Sea views, sweeping lawns, and a private beach - how Hillary Clinton plans to spend break from campaigning among 'ordinary Americans' in $50,000-a-week Hamptons home," by Daniel Bates in The Daily Mail: "Exclusive pictures ... show what exactly the Democratic Presidential candidate is getting for her $100,000 - which covers just a two week rental. She will be able to relax in the 50ft pool, stroll the lush manicured lawns and sit on the easy chairs that overlook the gently curving beach, to which it has private access. She can also take advantage of the huge, airy lounge with a fireplace and patio or take a walk through the gardens." With 22 pix of the house, grounds and views on one page

STERN FLOATED -- "Ex-NBA commish David Stern is being urged to run for NYC mayor," by Post's Richard Johnson: "Friends of former NBA Commissioner David Stern are urging him to run for mayor in 2017, now that Mayor de Blasio is looking less likely to be re-elected to a second term. ... 'He's pretty bored ... He's always been interested in politics, and he's always been interested in running for office.' Stern is an associate at the Council on Foreign Relations. ... 'He's tough as nails. He's popular with the black community,' said one associate. 'New York would be lucky to have him as mayor.' Stern, though 'flattered,' said he is not interested in running. 'I remain a happy Westchester resident and am very busy as a senior adviser to a number of enterprises.'"

JAMES FLOATED -- Business Insider reported that Public Advocate Letitia James is considering challenging fellow Brooklyn Democrat for mayor, according to a "local Democratic insider familiar with her thinking." The quote: "She's being told left and right by people who support her that she ought to consider it, and when you're told that enough, eventually you start to think about it."

-- Related; Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. went to hang out with his friends in the Queens Democratic Party, stirring more talk among attendees about his plans for higher office.

-- Cold water: For sitting city officials, the incentives of floating trial balloons about running against de Blasio in 2017 (boost in exposure, fund-raising) far outweigh the cost of actually running against de Blasio in 2017 (giving up a safe re-election, attack ads, etc.). -- Azi

TABS -- News: HOLD YOUR HORSES@ Mayor admits he doesn't have the votes to ban city's beloved carriages" -- Post: "Subway Jared underage sex shock: ENJOY A FOOT LONG IN JAIL" -- amNY: "MTA'S NEXT STOPS: EXCLUSIVE: Exiting transit prez on ups and downs of his tenure -and what lies ahead" -- Metro: "Gov agrees with mayor: 'Desnudas' must go" -- Observer: "SOFT POWER DRESSING: Hillary's warmed up look could win the White House" -- Newsday: "TUNNEL TROUBLE" -- Village Voice: "WTF!!?? The Voice came up with a list of emoji that New York City needs ASAP!" -- El Diario [translated]: Recovered wages

FRONT PAGES -- NYT, 3-col. above the fold: "Clinton and Black Activist, Raw and Unscripted" -- WSJNY, 1-col. above the fold: "Cuomo berates topless women"

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "I don't believe you change hearts. I believe you change laws, you change allocation of resources, you change the way systems operate." -- Hillary Clinton to Black Lives Matters activists, via Times' Maggie Haberman:

BONUS QUOTE OF THE DAY: " Clinton pointed to her record on civil rights work, but she never apologized for, or even acknowledged, her and her husband's role in giving America the dubious distinction of having the world's highest incarceration rate. ... She was agile and evasive, for sure. She bobbed and weaved like Floyd Mayweather." Times columnist Charles Blow on Clinton's answers to Black Lives Matters activists:

EXTRA BONUS QUOTE OF THE DAY: "The Daily News has been exactly right here. The Daily News has taken the school of journalism where they find an injustice and they harp on it until the public understands." -- Gov. Andrew Cuomo, on topless Times Square performers

#PATAKIWATCH -- "George Pataki, in Presidential Bid, Fights to Jog Voters' Memories," by Times' Alex Burns: "As former Gov. George E. Pataki of New York strolled through the luncheon for seniors, bending his 6-foot-5 frame downward to make small talk over a soundtrack of square-dance music, he earned a rare smile of recognition. ... Mr. Pataki spends a lot of time these days reminding voters that he used to run the State of New York. The former three-term governor faces vast obstacles in his bid for the Republican presidential nomination, but none may be more daunting than the electorate's fleeting memory. In a political culture that prizes novelty and high drama, Mr. Pataki is a genial, low-key campaigner who left office nearly a decade ago, and sounds like it."

EAT BEAT - "12 Excellent, Always-Busy Restaurants to Sneak Into Before Labor Day," by Grub Street's Chris Crowley: "Atera ... Cherche Midi ... Estela ... The Four Horsemen ... Gramercy Tavern ... Locanda Verde ... Marta ... The NoMad ... Noreetuh ... Oiji ... Rebelle ... Untitled."

MEDIA MORNING -- The Sulzbergers have a number: "The New York Times Won't Skimp on the Cost of Journalism - Even if That Means Selling Itself," by Re/code's Edmund Lee: "The New York Times has long been the pinnacle of journalism, and whether or not you're convinced of its investigative mettle, there's no doubting the Times' impact, like when a 10,000-word, two-part feature on nail salons prompted the passage of a new state law. ... It's that kind of expensive-to-produce, influential reporting that makes the Times the Times, and the family owners, the Ochs-Sulzbergers , know that better than anyone. If - and here's the kernel if - the business ever diminished to the point that required significant cuts to its editorial staff, the family, led by publisher Arthur Sulzberger, would seriously consider a sale to preserve it, multiple sources say. Curtailing the talent would destroy the paper's very reason for being, the thinking goes. ...

"There isn't a magic number of journalists the Times needs in order to keep its mojo, but sources suggest the publisher doesn't want to go too far below 1,000 - the newsroom currently supports 1,300 journalists and was once as low as 1,100."

-Times Co. C.E.O. Mark Thompson disputes the thrust of Lee's reporting. "I am in regular conversation with members of the Ochs-Sulzberger family and have never heard a whisper of a newsroom size - or frankly, any other calculation - that would cause them to consider a sale," he says. "The family's focus is not on arbitrary numbers but on maintaining the quality and editorial independence of The New York Times."

--"Bloomberg to lay off about 100 editorial employees," by N.Y. Post's Kevin Dugan: "The financial media giant, which employs about 2,700 journalists across the globe, is planning to lay off about 100 employees, or about 3.7 percent, in its editorial division as soon as Labor Day ... Many of the layoffs are expected to target politics and government reporters out of the New York and Washington, DC, bureaus ... Mike Bloomberg is looking to cut the fat ... [and] the spigot in new hires has been turned off."

SUMMER READ -- "The Smells of Summer," by Times' Kate Taylor: "On certain days in July and August, simply walking down a New York City block means being assaulted by smells: garbage, sweat, cigarettes, food carts and the hard-to-classify odors that come blasting on waves of hot air out of subway grates and building vents. How, we wondered, would a true expert describe the scents of summer in the city? So on Monday, when the temperature in Central Park tied a daily record of 95 degrees, we took a tour with a sommelier, Pascaline Lepeltier, the beverage director at Rouge Tomate in Manhattan; and a perfumer, Céline Barel, who develops scents for major fragrance companies at International Flavors & Fragrances in Manhattan."

CONN. GOVERNOR PLAYS DEFENSE ON G.E.-CT Post's Neil Vigdor: "Fairfield's top office holder says Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is preparing an aggressive counter-offer to try to keep General Electric Corp. in Connecticut after New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently visited the company's local headquarters. First Selectman Michael Tetreau said he expects the package to be laden with economic incentives, but that he wasn't privy to the framework of any negotiations between Malloy's administration and GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt. 'They're putting together a proposal,' said Tetreau, who like Malloy is a Democrat. 'The governor is directly involved in that. I'm not getting in the middle of Jeff and the governor talking.'"

--"GE's Death Perk for Immelt: A $22 Million Life Insurance Policy," by Bloomberg's Anders Melin: "General Electric has helped CEO Jeffrey Immelt amass $22 million of life insurance coverage that one day could help his heirs cover the tax bill for his estate. GE paid $314,511 last year for Immelt's two life insurance plans, the most for a CEO in the Standard & Poor's 100 Index."

RANDY CREDICO, PROFILED- New Yorker's Jennifer Gonnerman: "Before the term 'mass incarceration' started appearing on the front pages of newspapers, before Obama became the first sitting President to visit a federal prison, before Democrats and Republicans began working together on criminal-justice reform, Randy Credico was screaming about the injustices of America's incarceration policies. He wasn't writing angry op-eds for newspapers; he was, literally, screaming. It would have been easy to dismiss him as just another New York City crank. He certainly looked the part, with his curly hair askew, a soggy cigar stuck between his lips. But, as I learned, his animosity toward the prison system was well founded."

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY: 14 years ago yesterday, Roger Clark started working at NY1 [h/t Facebook].


-- Attorney Todd Banks is suing Uber alleging the company's anti-de Blasio robocalls violated federal laws prohibiting unsolicited robocalls for commercial purposes. Bloomberg's Christie Smythe:

-- Uber spokeswoman Alix Anfang said the company is "disappointed" that "de Blasio continues to attack and make false statements" about the company, referring to his remarks on WNYC yesterday. News' Dan Rivoli:

-- Unlike NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton's headline-making declaration about not serving until the end of a potential second term under de Blasio, NYC Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña, when asked how long she planned to serve, said, "I'm having a wonderful time and I take my life one day at a time." Observer's Ross Barkan :

-- A man was arrested in Texas Wednesday for calling in a fake bomb threat to the Statue of Liberty that forced the evacuation of thousands of visitors, U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara's office said. Jason Paul Smith of Lubbock, Texas, called the city's 911 in April, saying he was an Islamic State-connected terrorist named Abdul Yasin and was preparing to blow up the Statue of Liberty. POLITICO New York's Colby Hamilton:

-- Former NYPD commissioner Ray Kelly will be the featured guest at a luncheon at the Harvard Club sponsored by the Manhattan Institute on Friday, Sept 18. Kelly made news recently by criticizing the policing strategies of Mayor Bill de Blasio and current police commissioner Bill Bratton. See the Manhattan Institute event details here:

HOW THEY SPEND IT -- "Billionaire hedge funder said to buy lavish NYC apartment," by Post's Emily Smith: "Ken Griffin may be going through a messy divorce, but he is said to be buying a lavish apartment for himself at ultra-exclusive 220 Central Park South, dubbed 'the billionaire's bunker' by real estate insiders. Chicago-based Citadel founder Griffin, who is worth $7 billion, is mired in an ugly divorce from his wife of 11 years, Anne Dias-Griffin, who is asking for $1 million per month in child support. While they battle over their homes in Chicago, Aspen, Colo., and Manhattan's 820 Fifth Avenue, Griffin is rumored to be buying a condo at 220 Central Park South, the Robert A.M. Stern-designed, 950-foot-tall tower now under construction, where prices run from $30 million to $160 million-plus."

ENGAGED - Jessica Schumer to Mike Shapiro -- They met working together for Gene Sperling in the West Wing of the White House, and moved to Brooklyn this summer. Mike is an economic policy advisor on the Clinton Campaign and Jessica (the daughter of Sen. Chuck Schumer) is starting at the Robin Hood Foundation as chief of staff after Labor Day. He proposed Saturday afternoon under the Brooklyn Bridge in the garden outside the River Cafe. (He knew the Bridge is one of Jess' favorite places in the world.) He had arranged a table with rose petals and champagne. They then celebrated with both sets of parents Sunday night. Pic

HILLARYWATCH -- "State Department: Mills and Abedin official BlackBerrys likely gone," by Politico's Josh Gerstein: "BlackBerry devices the State Department issued to former Hillary Clinton aides Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin have likely been destroyed or sold off as surplus, a State official said in a court filing Wednesday."

--"How Hillary Clinton squandered a savvy campaign on an idiotic scandal," by Jill Lawrence in The Week: "[W]hy does it feel to some Democrats as if they are enduring the five stages of grief - denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance - all at the same time? This should have been a period of unalloyed excitement about a uniquely qualified frontrunner with the potential to make history as the first woman commander in chief. But that's hardly the universal mood as Clinton campaigns amid the completely predictable fallout from her decision to use a private email account as secretary of state."

REAL ESTATE -- FIT FOR A QUEEN-"Massive development-with pedestrian bridge to Roosevelt Island-pitched for Long Island City," by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: "A group of investors led by Rudy Giuliani's former chief of staff is proposing a multimillion-square-foot development near the Queens waterfront-a mixed-use project that would include a pedestrian bridge connecting Long Island City to Roosevelt Island, POLITICO New York has learned. Three sources briefed on the plan described it as the brainchild of Bruce Teitelbaum, who has quietly been presenting it to people in recent months."

WILLETS WOES-"New York City Declines to Fight in Court for Complex Near Citi Field," by Times' Charles V. Bagli: Talks broke down on Wednesday between the de Blasio administration and the Related Companies and Sterling Equities, the developers looking to remake Willets Point, which lies adjacent to Citi Field in Queens. The developers filed an appeal asking the Court of Appeals to overturn a decision that the city could not use a parking lot next to the stadium for a million-square-foot mall. The mayor decided to stay out of it.

HOUSING DEBATE-"De Blasio: Housing critics want poor neighborhoods 'to remain poor,'" by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: "Mayor Bill de Blasio shot back at critics who say his affordable housing plan isn't producing enough inexpensive apartments Wednesday morning. 'Some people, I think, almost argue we have some poor neighborhoods and they should just remain poor,' he said during an appearance on 'The Brian Lehrer Show' on WNYC. 'I'm caricaturing, but I think it makes the point.' ... He was responding to a question from Lehrer about concerns over whether it is sufficient to reserve 25 or 30 percent of units in a given development for low-income apartments - the requirement in the mayor's 'mandatory inclusionary housing' plan announced earlier this month.

THE HOME TEAMS -- POLITICO New York's Howard Megdal: Yankees 4, Twins 3: Get to know Greg Bird, who had his first two MLB home runs Wednesday, and is a good bet to play first base for a long time after Mark Teixeira is finished.

-- Orioles 5, Mets 4: Carlos Torres gave up a home run on the first pitch of the bottom of the ninth. The Mets really need relief help, and that's not easy to find at this point in the season.

-- Liberty 73, Stars 45: Off a surprisingly loss to Tulsa Saturday night, the Liberty went down to San Antonio and held the Stars scoreless for the first six minutes of the second quarter, racing out to a 36-12 lead. And they really didn't let up.

-- NYCFC 2, Columbus 2: A lightning delay followed Poku's brace.

-- The day ahead: the Yankees host the Indians. The Bills play an exhibition game against the Browns.
