TROOPERS PATROL TIMES SQUARE-Daily News: "State Police descended on Times Square Saturday as the topless painted ladies and their male managers who have been preying on tourists for tips were questioned on whether their basic business practices are on the up and up. One state officer was armed with a clipboard and grilled the women, trying perhaps to find a way to kick them out of the Crossroads of the World once and for all. Sources said the police were working on behalf of state Labor Department investigators looking into the jiggly panhandlers. Gov. Cuomo, in a phone interview with the Daily News Friday said the answer to the topless terror is simple: 'either the activity is legal or it's illegal.' Cuomo said if the bare-breasted buskers are operating as a business, then the state needs to ensure they are in compliance with tax laws and workers' comp requirements." http://nydn.us/1Judhs8

-- Cuomo said a City Hall proposal to remove the pedestrian plazas would be "problematic." http://politi.co/1JufyUe

-- Empire State Development quietly passed a resolution on Thursday saying "behavior" that "has a tendency to disrupt commercial activity" should be policed under the penal law. http://politi.co/1JudqMe

-- Dozens of women (and men) marched topless through midtown Manhattan. http://nyti.ms/1Juf0xF

-- State Sen. Ruben Diaz Sr. has introduced a bill making toplessness illegal for men and women anywhere but at the beach. http://politi.co/1Jufq7l

-- Times editorial: "[Topless womens'] presence has been enough to stir a Lower Manhattan tabloid into a righteous fury. ... Predictably, distressingly, our leaders took the bait. ... [D]e Blasio's sudden willingness to roll back years of ambitious streetscape redesign, are a monumental overreaction. The mayor could save everybody a lot of time. He could just meet with a few First Amendment lawyers and some of the women and men who make their living posing for tips. He doesn't have to wait a month - he could get a report this afternoon. It would remind everyone that being shirtless in the city is perfectly legal, a privilege men have enjoyed since forever. That the people who flock around the painted women in Times Square do not seem terribly offended. And that those who are can always walk away." http://goo.gl/uwEWuq

PRIVATE MEETINGS ABOUT PUBLIC SCHOOLS -- Post's Susan Edelman: "Mayor de Blasio is fighting to shut the public out of important "School Leadership Team" meetings even after a judge ruled they should be open. Despite the judge's decision, which the city is appealing, Chancellor Carmen Fariña still refuses to open the meetings. She has told principals the teams should work behind closed doors. Under state education law, every school must have a School Leadership Team. At least 10 members - the principal and a select group of teachers and parents - review their school's educational plan and budget. Mayor de Blasio's stance belies his promise to run a more open government than predecessor Mike Bloomberg, critics say.

-- "In the latest court papers, the city claims the SLT meetings "have never before been open to members of the press and general public," and that complying with the state Open Meetings Law would be a 'sea change in the status quo.' But New York Lawyers for the Public Interest cite evidence that SLTs, which started in 1998, were always open before de Blasio took office. ... DOE spokeswoman Devora Kaye said letting non-members attend 'would impede discussions' on personnel issues, individual students, and school safety plans. SLTs normally do not discuss individual personnel or students. If necessary, they could do so in a closed session, experts say. Schools have separate committees on safety." http://goo.gl/rRxYAJ

FAMILY BUSINESS -- "The Heirs: A three-way mostly civilized family contest to become the next publisher of The Times," by Gabriel Sherman in New York Mag: "The House of Sulzberger is made up of four families, all descendants of Ochs's daughter, and each harbors its own ambitions and grievances. ... [T]he outcome is not just a matter of family politics; the next publisher of the New York Times will be responsible for preserving the independence of the country's greatest newspaper in an increasingly challenging media environment. ... Three finalists have emerged: There's the current chairman and publisher Arthur Ochs Sulzberger Jr.'s 35-year-old son, Arthur Gregg 'A.?G.' Sulzberger, best known for leading the committee that produced the digital wake-up call known as the 'Innovation Report'; Sulzberger's nephew David Perpich, 38, a Harvard M.B.A. who successfully launched the paper's digital subscriptions; and Sam Dolnick, 34 ...

"A.G. and Sam have ascended through the newsroom ranks as Perpich climbed the business side ... A.G. - with management and newsroom experience, not to mention the Sulzberger name - is generally considered to be the front-runner. ... All three cousins grew up steeped in Times mythology, gathering at Hillandale, the onetime Sulzberger Connecticut estate, where copies of the Times were placed on benches in the gardens, and imbibing the belief that the family are stewards of a public trust. This indoctrination is how the Sulzbergers keep each new generation attached to the institution." http://nym.ag/1JuAISf

WATCH OUT -- "Member of de Blasio's security team shot in butt with pellet gun," by Post's Larry Celona, Gabrielle Fonrouge and Shawn Cohen: "A member of Mayor de Blasio's security detail was shot with a BB gun outside Gracie Mansion Sunday night, police said. The plainclothes detective, who was hit in the buttocks while getting out of her car at about 7:15 p.m., was treated and released from Lenox Hill Hospital, and a suspect in the apparent prank was in custody ...

2017 CHATTER OF THE DAY: "Business bigwigs-some with ties to Gov. Cuomo-have begun discussing the possibility of bankrolling an early effort to go after Mayor de Blasio in hopes of further weakening him in advance of the 2017 elections, sources say. ... Home Depot founder Ken Langone ... had private preliminary discussions last week about the idea of putting together a group to help raise money and coordinate a public campaign designed to chip away at the mayor, sources said. Those involved in the talks don't yet have a specific candidate to challenge the mayor in mind ...Besides Langone ... others mentioned as potentially getting involved in the effort are billionaire Paul Singer ... and Tudor Investment Corporation founder Paul Tudor Jones." News' Ken Lovett: http://goo.gl/3yUUeA

YESHIVA PROBE -- 38 of 39 are located in Brooklyn -- Associated Press' Karen Matthews: "There was no science, no geography and no math past multiplication at the ultra-Orthodox Jewish school Chaim Weber attended. And the only reason he ever heard of the American Revolution was when a seventh-grade teacher introduced it as 'story time.' ... Now, for the first time, the city Department of Education is investigating more than three dozen of the schools to make sure their instruction is up to the most basic standards. ... The investigation itself is shrouded in secrecy. The names of the specific yeshivas that are being targeted have not been released because of fears of retaliation. ... What is known is that 38 of the 39 yeshivas are in Brooklyn, the center of the city's Hasidic community." http://goo.gl/pKZAgT

TISH JAMES' LEGAL ACTIVITY -- Times' Nikita Stewart: "Her ease in the legal arena has had an unexpected effect: It has put her at odds with Mayor Bill de Blasio, a fellow Democrat, normally a reliable ally... As of last week, Ms. James was the listed plaintiff in nine lawsuits and four amicus briefs, mostly against city agencies. That is more lawsuits than her three immediate predecessors combined filed over 20 years. In Mr. de Blasio's four years in office, he filed a total of two lawsuits, four amicus briefs and an emergency motion, according to data provided by Ms. James's office." http://goo.gl/2lJ4oW

THE RAY KELLY TOUR -- Promoting his book, defending his legacy -- POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: New York City's former police commissioner, Ray Kelly, will kick off his national book tour in the coming weeks with a party co-hosted by Michael Bloomberg and Vanity Fair, three sources familiar with the event told POLITICO New York. Invitations are set to go out Monday for the Sept. 8 event, one of Kelly's representatives said over the weekend.

-- The party is planned for the Bloomberg Foundation headquarters on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, according to the representative, who would only speak on background and not for attribution. Kelly-who was commissioner for two years under David Dinkins and all three of Bloomberg's terms-is planning to speak about his memoir, 'Vigilance: My Life Serving America and Protecting its Empire City,' throughout the country. He will also do national television interviews. ... Kelly's publicity tour is likely to include plenty of questions about Mayor Bill de Blasio, whose campaign for mayor in 2013 targeted the commissioner's policies, particularly the department's use of stop-and-frisk. http://goo.gl/poIOUJ

CAPITOL MOVES: A top aide to state Comptroller Tom DiNapoli has jumped to the Cuomo administration, a rare instance of cross pollination between two officials whose relations are normally frosty. At the same time, the governor lost yet another education adviser. Cathy Calhoun, who had served as DiNapoli's deputy comptroller for intergovernmental affairs since he won his first full term in 2010, started a new job as chief of staff for the Department of Transportation on July 1. Calhoun shares Central New York roots with the department's new commissioner, Matt Driscoll, who took the reins from Joan McDonald. ... A Cuomo administration official also confirmed that Elana Sigall has left her position as deputy secretary for education after less than a year. Sigall was the fourth person to hold that title in five years; she was appointed in November. http://politi.co/1JuaiQs

REAL ESTATE -- PARTY CITY-"Real Estate Board of NY chief has 'power lunch' with state senator," by Post's Richard Johnson: "Sometimes lunch is just lunch, but when new Real Estate Board of New York (REBNY) boss John Banks broke bread at the Capital Grille in Midtown with state Sen. Mike Gianaris (D-Queens), it looked like eating wasn't the priority. REBNY contributed big bucks to help Republicans keep their majority in the state Senate in 2014, but the GOP lawmakers then sided with labor in demanding that a renewal of the 421-a affordable housing law include a prevailing wage provision." http://pge.sx/1Nuttwm

LAX TAX-"Tax on $3.6M Williamsburg loft is just $24," by Post's Jennifer Gould Keil: "A luxury loft in hipster Williamsburg is on the market for a hefty $3.65 million-but it comes with a mere $24-a-year tax bill. ... The listing attributes the teeny tax bill to a J-51 exemption-in effect until 2025-and a J-51 abatement. That's similar to the controversial 421-a tax-abatement program. Even though it was intended to boost affordable housing, the 421-a program has been criticized for giving deals to billionaires-like the buyer of the city's first $100 million condo, at 157 W. 57th, who has a $17,000-a-year property-tax bill." http://bit.ly/1NuqOCP

NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH-"New Condos in Astoria's Kaufman Arts District," by Times' Alison Gregor: "A 24-block section of Astoria, Queens, known as the Kaufman Arts District and home to Kaufman Astoria Studios-one of the world's oldest continuously active movie studios-will soon see the addition of its first major new apartment building in years. The Marx, a seven-story building with 33 condominium units at 34-32 35th Street, is under construction and is expected to be completed by early spring 2016, said Eric Benaim, the founder of Modern Spaces, a brokerage marketing the apartments." http://nyti.ms/1Nus3Sn

THE HOME TEAMS -- POLITICO New York's Howard Megdal: Galaxy 5, NYCFC 1: The NYCFC defense looked about as ready for Robbie Keane (two goals, two assists) and friends as you'd expect from the rest of the season. Frank Lampard, once again, missed the game due to injury. Tough year for Jason Kreis.

-- Indians 4, Yankees 3: On Andy Pettitte Day, CC Sabathia was injured and the Yankees fell out of first place.

-- Mets 5, Rockies 1: Even the spot starters for the Mets are dominating. This time, Logan Verrett, pitching to keep Matt Harvey below a team-imposed innings limit, allowed one run over eight innings, striking out eight.

-- Fever 80, Liberty 79: Epiphanny Prince's jumper missed in the waning seconds, and the Tamika Catchings push by the Fever in the season's second half reached a sixth straight win and sliced the Liberty's lead in the Eastern Conference to a single game with eight left in the season.

-- The day ahead: David Wright is scheduled to return for the Mets, who play in Philadelphia. The Yankees host the Astros.

#UpstateAmerica -- Boonville's annual Woodsmen games were Sunday. http://bit.ly/1JuhBI1
