MACK HELPS IN GE PUSH-POLITICO New York's Jimmy Vielkind: The Cuomo administration is engaging ex-Wall Street titan John Mack, an informal adviser to the governor, to help persuade General Electric officials to move their headquarters to the Empire State, POLITICO New York has learned. According to two people familiar with the lobbying efforts, Mack has contacted GE CEO Jeff Immelt several times over the course of the summer. The two have been social friends since Mack's time as CEO of Morgan Stanley, the investment bank. New York is among several states pitching the industrial conglomerate since its executives said in June they were thinking about moving their headquarters from Fairfield, Conn., in response to changes in Connecticut's tax structure. POLITICO New York first reported that Governor Andrew Cuomo met with GE executives in Connecticut on July 30.

REPUBLICANS FOR MOSKOWITZ -- "GOP so desperate to get rid of de Blasio it will back a Democrat," by Post's Carl Campanile: "GOP leaders searching for a challenger to topple Mayor de Blasio in 2017 are so excited that Democratic charter-school champion Eva Moskowitz is weighing a run that they're open to letting her enter the race as a Republican. ... Adele Malpass, chair of the Manhattan Republican Party ... said wealthy backers of charters are prepared to bankroll a Moskowitz campaign. Moskowitz, who, as a member of the City Council chaired the Education Committee, is the founder and CEO of the city's largest charter network, Success Academy. She has said she's considering taking on de Blasio, but would need GOP permission to run as a Republican."

MAYOR DEFENDS NYCHA INFILL -- POLITICO New York's Laura Nahmias: The city plans to announce in the coming weeks the selection of between two and four NYCHA sites for the development, setting off what NYCHA chairwoman Shola Olatoye has said will likely be months of raucous debate. The sites will eventually become home to about 7,500 units - half market rate and half affordable housing - over the next decade under the Next Generation NYCHA plan de Blasio unveiled in the spring.

-- The idea is similar to a plan put forth by former mayor Michael Bloomberg. However, Mayor Bill de Blasio took pains on Monday to emphasize the execution of his plan - the element which he said had foiled Bloomberg's plan - would be vastly different. "Obviously my predecessor had a plan which I did not agree with and we have a very different plan. Our plan focuses on affordable housing," de Blasio said during a press conference at the Queensbridge Houses in Long Island City. Where Bloomberg's plan was heavy on market rate housing - specifically, 80 percent market rate units and 20 percent affordable - De Blasio's calls for roughly the opposite. De Blasio also said he plans to do a better job selling the idea than Bloomberg did. "In every case we'll be working closely with residents of the development of the community. That's another thing that I did not think was being done properly under the previous administration," he said. "I don't think there was serious engagement with community members and residents to figure out what they needed.

FEWER ACCIDENTS IN TIMES SQUARE -- WSJ's Andrew Tangel and Josh Dawsey: "Mayor Bill de Blasio's administration is now weighing the possibility of re-opening the plaza ... But the city's own data could provide ammunition for arguments against closing the plaza ... After the city closed off portions of Broadway between West 42nd and West 47th Streets, the average number of traffic crashes with injuries there fell 14% to an average of 48 over the next five years, according to the data, which were supplied by the city Department of Transportation; the number of overall traffic crashes remained relatively flat.

"The data reflect reported injuries in the five years from June 1, 2004, through May 31, 2009, when the city closed streets to build the plaza, and then five years after, through May 31, 2014. The city data include crashes along Seventh Avenue and Broadway, between West 42nd and West 47th streets. The number of injuries suffered by motor-vehicle occupants dropped 50% to an annual average of 13 over the five years after the plaza's opening. Pedestrian injuries dipped from an average of 34 over the five years leading up to the plaza to an average of 32 in the years after."

PIC OF THE DAY -- "De Blasio Sends Son Dante Off to Yale While Wearing Mandals," by DNAinfo's Nicole Levy: "'I'm not the leading fashionista in my household,' Mayor de Blasio said at a New York Fashion Week event this winter. 'I'm fourth in terms of fashionista capacity.' We're inclined to agree with him after seeing photos of the city's first family sending off Dante to Yale on Sunday for his first year of college in New Haven. Pictures posted by First Lady Chirlane McCray on her official Tumblr, #FLONYC, show de Blasio wearing a pair of dark brown mandals."

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "We want to thank the former mayor Giuliani for his brain." -- Karen Hinton, de Blasio's press secretary, responding to complaints from the former mayor. via WNBC:

BONUS QUOTE OF THE DAY: "Are our reforms working? Yes." -- Joseph Ponte, commissioner of the NYC Department of Correction.

CUOMO'S LETTER TO THE TIMES EDITOR: "I have said repeatedly that I vigorously support the idea of a new [Amtrak] tunnel [under the Hudson River] and have expressed the desperate need for expediting its construction. ... There is a wide gap between politicians saying they will do something and actually getting it done. ... [G]etting the federal government to turn its rhetorical support into actual support is the essential cornerstone. Washington's only offer so far - of a partial loan - is not a viable financing plan and does nothing to make the project a reality. I am trying to hold the federal government's feet to the fire and get a meaningful commitment in the form of federal grant dollars so we can actually make progress."

COMING ATTRACTIONS -- "More Than 100 Craft Beers On Tap at Greenpoint Festival," by DNAinfo's Serena Dai: "More than 100 beers from dozens of craft breweries will be on tap at the Village Voice's 5th Annual Brooklyn Pour Craft Beer Festival, taking place at Greenpoint's Brooklyn Expo Center on Sept. 26. Local breweries, including Bushwick's Braven Brewing Company and Long Island City's Rockaway Brewing Company, will set up shop at the event. Other craft breweries and cider companies from outside the five boroughs, like Austin Eastciders from Texas and Traveler Beer Company from Vermont, will also provide samples."

BEACH BATTLE -- "In Fight for a Stretch of the Rockaways, Surfers and New Residents Collide," by Times' Corey Kilgannon: "The growing popularity of surfing in the Rockaways has created a resurgence, attracting large beach crowds, fueling new businesses and generating other economic boosts. But it has also made the two New York City-sanctioned surfing beaches, near Beach 90th and Beach 67th Streets in Queens, packed with wave seekers. ... Calling the crowded lineups of surfers potentially dangerous, many surfers are pushing for a new or expanded surfing area, specifically along a stretch from Beach 66th Street to Beach 60th."

#HILLARYWATCH: 'Barack Obama gives Joe Biden his 'blessing' for 2016 presidential run' -- News' Cameron Joseph: "'I wouldn't rule out the possibility of an endorsement during the Democratic primary,' White House press secretary Josh Earnest said during a briefing. He added that President Obama has said making Biden his running mate 'was the smartest decision he ever made in politics' and that those comments reflected on Obama's views of Biden's "aptitude" for the presidency.

-- "'I'll just say that the vice president is somebody who has already run for President twice. He's been on a national ticket through two election cycles now, both in 2008 and in the reelection of 2012,' Earnest said. 'So I think you could make the case that there is probably no one in American politics today who has a better understanding of exactly what is required to mount a successful national presidential campaign' than Biden, he continued."

-- "Undercover Republican Goes Hillary-Hunting in Clinton Library," by The Daily Beast's Jackie Kucinich in Little Rock: "He arrives at the [William J. Clinton Presidential Library] each day at 9 a.m. on the dot ... He is a staffer for the [RNC] ... dispatched to Arkansas to wade through the Clinton archives. He spends his days looking for contradictions, embarrassments ... nestled within the hundreds of boxes stored there."

-- 'WHIPPING BOY': "New York Mayor Bill de Blasio says he wants to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential race. Republicans are making his wish come true. De Blasio, a Democrat who vowed to use the campaign to raise the nation's awareness of income inequality, has instead become the target of Republican candidates who call him a symbol of inept liberalism. His role in helping Hillary Clinton get elected to the U.S. Senate 15 years ago makes him an even more attractive whipping boy." Bloomberg's Henry Goldman and Terrence Dopp:

2017 CHATTER OF THE DAY: "When the mayor appears to waste time traveling to Brooklyn for his workouts and shows up late to public events, it's an annoying bad habit, not a full-blown crisis. Hizzoner's inability to rid our city of horse-drawn carriages, Uber cars and topless panhandlers will not provoke a mass revolt by voters. ... a more serious problem will emerge if de Blasio doesn't move the needle on income inequality. In recent history, only three sitting New York mayors have been voted out of office - Abe Beame, Ed Koch and David Dinkins - and each man's fate was sealed when he failed to keep his central promise to voters." News' Errol Louis:

-- FLASHBACK, Nov. 2013: How de Blasio wants to be measured on impacting incoming inequality. POLITICO New York:

ON THE MOVE: The Albany Times Union hired Bethany Bump, a reporter at the Schenectady Gazette, to cover education. Mark Gearan, the president of Hobart & William Smith College, resigned as chairman of the Gaming Commission. Carrie Meek Gallagher was appointed director of the Department of Environmental Conservation region that includes Nassau and Suffolk counties.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Former Suffolk County executive Steve Levy, Republican congressional hopeful John Faso.

VIDEO OF THE DAY: Watch investigators re-trace the escape route through Dannemora prison.

THE GOVERNOR WRITES A LETTER-Cuomo responds to the Times: "'Mr. Cuomo Should Get on Board ' (editorial, Aug. 20) suggests that I am not 'on board' with a new Amtrak rail tunnel under the Hudson River. Nothing could be further from the truth. I have said repeatedly that I vigorously support the idea of a new tunnel and have expressed the desperate need for expediting its construction. I have even offered to help fund the tunnel and accelerate its review process. I believe that a governor's legacy is based on public infrastructure projects constructed during his or her term, and have demonstrated that by building more public works than any governor in decades."

NEW TRAILS-Post-Standard's Michelle Breidenbach: "New York state wants to develop a "hut-to-hut" trail system in the Central Adirondacks , the Department of Environmental Conservation has announced. It would link lodging and public lands in the towns of Newcomb, Minerva, Indian Lake, Long Lake and North Hudson. The DEC's announcement did not specify the kinds of huts or the kinds of trails. George Canon, town supervisor in Newcomb, said he expects the trails will accommodate hikers, bikers and snowmobilers."

REAL ESTATE -- "Land use chairman raises concerns about housing policy," by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: "The de Blasio administration's proposal to mandate low-income housing in rezoned neighborhoods has raised the concern of a prominent member of the City Council: land use committee chairman David Greenfield. The Brooklyn Democrat, who oversees the powerful committee that will have a vote on the plan, questioned why the city proposed only two options for rent thresholds. 'We're a little bit concerned about the one-size-fits-all across the city,' he said in a recent interview."

-"FAO Schwarz and Toys 'R' Us Looking to Open Combo Store at Brill Building," by Commercial Observer's Lauren Elkies Schram: "The future owners of the Brill Building are in negotiations with FAO Schwarz and sister company Toys 'R' Us for a co-branded store, Commercial Observer has learned. If the deal goes through, it would solve the mystery of where Toys, which didn't renew its flagship location in Times Square, and FAO, which vacated the General Motors Building in July, would reopen. There is about 50,000 square feet of retail space available in the Brill Building at 1619 Broadway at West 49th Street."

-"Firm pays $200 million for majority stake in St. John's Terminal, eyes big redevelopment," by Crain's Daniel Geiger: "A sprawling building, ripe for development and seen as a savior to the decaying Pier 40, now has a single controlling owner for the first time in years. Westbrook Partners paid more than $200 million to buy out a partner, Fortress Investment Group, to take a controlling ownership stake in St. John's Terminal, a 1.1 million-square-foot office property at 550 Washington St. The deal values the four-story, three-block-long building at about $650 million."

-"Smoke near the water: Brickman buys ex-LIC cigar factory," by Real Deal's Mark Maurer: "Brickman acquired a former DeNobili cigar factory a block from the Long Island City waterfront for $31.1 million, The Real Deal has learned. Although Modern Spaces marketed the four-story, nearly 103,000-square-foot office warehouse at 35-11 9th Street as a potential conversion to apartments, the new owner is taking a different route. 'We are going to continue to operate it as it had been previously operated,' Steve Klein, chief investment officer at Brickman, told TRD."

THE HOME TEAMS -- POLITICO New York's Howard Megdal: Mets 16, Phillies 7: David Wright not only returned to the lineup, he homered into the second deck at Citizens Bank Park in his first at-bat. A road game once again became a Mets love fest, thousands cheering as the Mets hit 8 home runs and 14 extra-base hits, the latter a franchise record. Afterward, standing at his locker, Wright said: "Emotionally, early on, a lot of Mets fans made this trip. Batting practice, the fans are cheering. Your first at-bat, running out to the field. I had to be careful, almost pulled a Wilmer Flores out there." Mets fans: this is real life.

-- Yankees 1, Astros 0: Old friend Oliver Perez walked three in the ninth, and old friend Carlos Beltran hit a game-winning sac fly.

-- The day ahead: the Mets are in Philadelphia again. The Yankees host the Astros.

COFFEE BREAK -- "CBS's 'The Late Show with Stephen Colbert' announces lineup of guests for premiere week" - Release: "Guests appearing on Sept. 8 are Academy Award winner George Clooney [and] Jeb Bush ... During The Late Show's inaugural week, Colbert will also welcome Scarlett Johansson, Amy Schumer, Stephen King, Tesla Motors and Space X CEO Elon Musk and Uber CEO Travis Kalanick. In addition, the show will feature musical performances by Grammy Award-winning artists Kendrick Lamar and Toby Keith, as well as Troubled Waters."
