WESTCHESTER COURTS GE - POLITICO New York's Jimmy Vielkind: Officials in Westchester County have been actively gathering - and pitching - potential sites for General Electric to move its headquarters there. "We're open for business and we would love to have GE here, and we wanted to make sure that they know what we have to offer," said Ned McCormack, a spokesman for Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino. "Now that this has been out there for a couple of weeks, there's a couple of places that seem to be in play." POLITICO New York reported that Gov. Andrew Cuomo visited the industrial conglomerate's C-suite in Fairfield, Connecticut, on July 30.

-- David Sirota stitches together GE's campaign contributions, record on Hudson River dredging and Cuomo's current efforts to woo the company.

KING LEANS BUSH, MULLS TRUMP -- POLITICO New York's Brendan Cheney: Rep. Pete King hasn't made an endorsement yet in the Republican presidential primary, but he has some preferred candidates. In a conversation with POLITICO New York, King, a Republican representing parts of Long Island, said that he is leaning toward Jeb Bush, and is also considering Donald Trump, among others. 'It's too early to see who is going to be standing,' he said. "I'm not sure who can make payroll next month. ... Trump is providing a certain leadership right now."

UBER FOR ... TAXIS -- Crain's Andrew Hawkins: "It's called Arro, and it may be the traditional taxi industry's best shot at survival in the age of Uber. Eighteen months in the making, the new smartphone application allows users to hail and pay for yellow and green taxi rides in New York City, essentially mirroring a service that Uber already provides called UberT. But Arro's designers claim their app is faster, cheaper and more reliable than Uber's. ... When a user taps the app, a nearby cab driver is sent the passenger's name, the pickup address and cross streets. The rider is sent the driver's name and ID number so she can identify the car. Users save their credit card information in the app, allowing them to pay the metered fare-plus tip-automatically. ... That leads to the next feature that Arro says gives it a leg up on Uber: no surge pricing, which increases the fare during periods of high demand. 'It's always just the price on the meter,' said [Mike Epley, director of product management at Arro]."

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "I'm sending him a sympathy card." -- Assemblyman Dov Hikind during a protest over Rep. Jerry Nadler's support for Obama's deal with Iran, via Observer's Ross Barkan:

BONUS QUOTE OF THE DAY: "A Sunday morning host is what I always wanted to be." -- Rev. Al Sharpton after having his weeknight show moved to Sunday morning, via News' David Hinkley:

SHARPTON SHOW SHIFTED TO SUNDAY -- 'I never wanted to be a weeknight pundit' -- News' David Hinkley: "As part of an ongoing shakeup at the cable news channel, Sharpton's "Politics Nation" will shift from 6 p.m. weeknights to 8 a.m. Sundays. His last weeknight show will be Sept. 4 and his first Sunday show Oct. 4. Sharpton deflected a suggestion that he had been demoted. 'I'm very happy,' he said Wednesday. 'First, I can reach a wider audience of people who don't get home by 6 at night. Second, I can now get the A-list guests and newsmakers I want. And third, a Sunday morning host is what I always wanted to be. I never wanted to be a weeknight pundit. I wanted to be a Sunday morning newsmaker. I wanted to be Dr. Martin Luther King, not Larry King.' ...

-- "The Sunday move means Sharpton will be on the air for only one hour a week rather than five ... The network has basically eliminated opinion shows after its "Morning Joe" telecast on weekdays. Chuck Todd will host a politics show at 5 p.m. and a network spokesman said a new show will be announced to take Sharpton's slot in the coming weeks. The evening lineup of Chris Matthews at 7, Chris Hayes at 8, Rachel Maddow at 9 and Lawrence O'Donnell at 10 remains unchanged."

ORTHODOX CRITICISM OF NADLER -- Observer's Ross Barkan: "Blasting Congressman Jerrold Nadler for choosing to support a controversial nuclear accord with Iran, a group of Orthodox Jewish leaders promised [Wednesday night] that the veteran Democrat would feel the full wrath of his constituents-and one even suggested Mr. Nadler would be vulnerable to a primary challenger. 'This is the defining issue for me. I would never support him,' Assemblyman Dov Hikind, a conservative Democrat, told the Observer at the Brooklyn rally. 'I believe there will be a challenger, someone to the left of me who can actually win and I think there will be tons of money to help that person.' ... The rally was held in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, home to a large Orthodox Jewish population, and was also intended to pressure New York members of Congress who have not weighed in on the deal brokered by the United States and five other nations."

-- Post headline: "Holocaust survivors blast Nadler's support for Iran deal"

CARDINAL DOLAN STEPS IN -- City and archdiocese to partner on homelessness, affordable housing -- POLITICO New York's Laura Nahmias: Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the head of New York's Catholic Archdiocese, met with Mayor Bill de Blasio to talk about affordable housing and homelessness in New York City, agreeing to pursue a partnership to find ways to increase shelter and housing options amid record levels of homelessness across the city.

Some solutions could include using buildings that the Catholic Archdiocese currently owns that are underutilized, City Hall said in an official release. "I've been invited by the Mayor to partner with him in this crucial challenge that we've got in providing affordable housing and emergency shelters," Dolan said. "We still got some meat and potatoes to work out," he said, referring to the details of the partnership, "but I think it's a go."

INCREASING PATROLS -- NYPD to double police presence in Times Square -- POLITICO New York's Azi Paybarah: The police department plans to add about 50 officers to the area from 42nd to 49th streets, between Broadway and 7th Avenue. By the beginning of October, about 100 officers will be patrolling the area, said James O'Neill, the NYPD's chief of department.

There will also be changes in how the department deploys the officers: Over the past 10 years so, the area has been patrolled by a rotating brigade of between 50 and 130 officers as part of Operation Impact. They are mainly younger officers, right out of the police academy and are eventually re-assigned to permanent posts, usually in local precincts. The 50 new officers will be assigned permanently to Times Square as part of the NYPD's expanding neighborhood policing effort.

-- Urbanist group backs petition drive to save Times Square -- POLITICO New York's Dana Rubinstein: On Wednesday, the Municipal Art Society emailed supporters asking them to sign a petition urging Mayor Bill de Blasio and his police commissioner, Bill Bratton, to jettison any thought of removing the plaza. "Ripping up the plaza would cause more traffic injuries and remove a vital open space, and it won't address the underlying problem-the lack of a legal framework for pedestrian plazas in general, and Times Square in particular," reads the message, which was sent to the Society's 20,000-strong email list.

-- What they're suggesting: The Municipal Art Society on Wednesday sought to ensure its voice in particular would be heard. It offered some alternative policy prescriptions, including: "Consider how vending is managed in our city's parks;" and "Update city law to create a set of regulations for plazas, similar to how the city has specific laws for streets, sidewalks and parks, so that appropriate enforcement and management can take place." And it linked readers to a petition sponsored by another urbanist group, the Design Trust for Public Space. "Aggressive street performers and 'desnudas' are an enforcement problem," reads the petition, which more than 1,100 people have signed. "They aren't a plaza problem."

COMING ATTRACTIONS -- "Pope Francis May Pass Through Central Park During New York Visit," by Times' Emma G. Fitzsimmons: "When Pope Francis visits New York City next month, the best place to catch a glimpse of the popular pontiff may be in Central Park. Officials with the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York said Wednesday they were in 'serious discussions' about having the pope's motorcade travel through part of the park."

AMERICAN PHAROAH ARRIVES - Ed McNamara in Newsday: "The American Pharoah road show will roll into Saratoga Wednesday, when the Triple Crown champion will be greeted like the conquering hero he is. 'To see him means a lot to people,' trainer Bob Baffert said Tuesday on a conference call. 'It's the Pharoah tour, and it's pretty incredible. I feel like I'm bringing the Beatles to town.' ... Sunday's announcement that Pharoah would run in Saturday's 146th Travers Stakes thrilled the locals and the New York Racing Association. American Pharoah was made the 1-5 morning-line favorite and drew post 2 in a field of 10. His opponents, with odds, from the rail out: Upstart, 15-1; Mid Ocean, 50-1; Texas Red, 8-1; Frammento, 30-1; Frosted, 6-1; Keen Ice, 12-1; Tale of Verve, 30-1; King of New York, 50-1; Smart Transition, 20-1."

PIC OF THE DAY: American Pharoah exits his plane-Air Horse One-at Albany International Airport.

#PatakiWatch: Pataki was spotted by Jacob Kornbluh having a kosher lunch at Mike's Bistro in Manhattan.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Assemblyman Gary Pretlow and Saleem Cheeks of Eric Mower and Associates.

PROPOSED: NO SODAS FOR KIDS - POLITICO New York's Dan Goldberg: A Staten Island Democrat wants to ban the sale of large sugary drinks to children. Assemblyman Matthew Titone says sugar is dangerous and New Yorkers are likely consuming far more than they realize because foods and drinks aren't labeled in a way that is easy to understand. Titone's package of legislation would prohibit the sale of sugary drinks 16 ounces or larger to minors and require a warning label on foods and beverages with about 40 grams of sugar. The state Department of Health would determine the phrasing of the label.

EAT BEAT -- "Cozy Greenwich Avenue Oyster Bar Opening New Location in East Village," by DNAinfo's Lisha Arino: "A West Village oyster bar known for its intimate and narrow space is expanding into roomier digs in the East Village this fall. Virgola, which opened in a six-foot-wide alleyway on Greenwich Avenue two years ago, will move into a second location three times larger at 111 East Seventh St. in November ... Despite the extra elbow room, Virgola's new location will have the same vibe as the original ... with a dimly lit, black interior similar to the Greenwich Avenue bar and a new steel bar."


-- Stop-and-frisk, declining -- "Stop-and-frisk activity by NYPD officers continued to decline in the second quarter of this year, dropping just over 9 percent from the previous quarter and putting the city on pace to come in with less than 28,000 stops in 2015. Police officers carried out 6,469 stops in the quarter ending June 30, compared with 7,135 in the first quarter of this year, according to figures obtained by Newsday. The quarterly pace so far this year suggests that the NYPD will carry out slightly more than 27,000 stop-and-frisks, a fraction of the 685,000 done in 2011, the highest level ever recorded." Newsday's Anthony DeStafano:

-- "Raid of Rentboy, an Escort Website, Angers Gay Activists." Times' Stephanie Clifford:

-- "New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio enjoyed a lunch of Bronx Pale Ales and lobster salads with a colleague at The Lure Group's Ambrose Beer and Lobster in NYC."'s Alisson Schulman:

-- Disappearing book stores: "A new Target store is slated to take over the space currently occupied by Barnes & Noble at 7000 Austin St., in Forest Hills ... The store will be the first small-scale store in Queens for Target, which has recently been offering more small format locations for city-dwellers across the country. The stores were supposed to be known as TargetExpress, before the retailer giant changed its branding tack earlier this year. Target inked a deal for a 15-year, 20,795-square-foot lease and is slated to open at the property in mid-2016." News' Katherine Clarke:

-- Tech companies are relocating because "Prices in Chelsea are not quite as ridiculous as those in Soho -- $55 and $67 per square foot respectively." The Square Foot's Aaron Susman:

--"As Service Gaps Remain, City Says Verizon Broke Promise on FiOS," by Times' Patrick McGeehan: "When New York City was preparing to let Verizon offer its high-speed FiOS Internet service in 2008, a city councilwoman, Gale A. Brewer, warned that 'New Yorkers need to know whether they are going to wait three years or six years.' For many frustrated residents ... it has already been seven years and there is still no FiOS in sight."

THE TALK OF WALL STREET -- "A New York hedge fund is having a monster month thanks to market mayhem," by Business Insider's Julia La Roche: "New York-based Capstone Investment Advisors, a $3.6 billion hedge fund ... founded by Paul Britton, runs a number of portfolio-protection funds that seek to profit from wild moves in asset prices. One of the smaller funds in the firm's tail-risk strategy has delivered a 55% return so far this month."

REAL ESTATE -- SITE SAFETY-"Construction injuries jumped 34 percent in one year, data shows," by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: "The city Department of Buildings, which is investigating Tuesday's construction-related fatality in Manhattan, reported a steep rise in accidents and deaths at work sites over the past fiscal year, data shows. Construction-related injuries increased 34 percent, from 211 in Fiscal year 2014 to 283 in F.Y. 2015, which ended June 30, according to agency statistics. There were 187 injuries each year in F.Y. 2012 and 2013 and 128 in F.Y. 2011 and 206 in F.Y. 2010, the annual Mayor's Management Report shows."

MEDIA MORNING-"AP to move headquarters to Brookfield Place," by POLITICO New York's Joe Pompeo: "The Associated Press is joining the march of media companies downtown. The nonprofit news cooperative announced Wednesday that it will relocate from its current global headquarters in Midtown Manhattan to the Brookfield Place office complex near the World Trade Center. The move will take place in early 2017, CEO Gary Pruitt told AP employees today."

-- "Here Are the Horniest Companies in Media, According to the Ashley Madison Hack," by Gawker's Sam Biddle : "We found dozens of accounts that appear to have been created with computers owned by Fox News (49), the New York Times (85), Condé Nast (29), and, yes-the AP (30)."

TIME OUT-"'Subgroup' to address spread of street performers beyond Times Square," by POLITICO New York's Laura Nahmias: "City Hall is forming a 'subgroup' of the task force Mayor Bill de Blasio formed last week to find ways to curb rowdy costumed characters and topless women in Times Square. The subgroup will address growing concerns from elected officials in other parts of the city who say they have seen a proliferation of the costumed and topless street performers in other tourist destinations like Battery Park City and Coney Island." [PRO]

THE HOME TEAMS -- POLITICO New York's Howard Megdal: Mets 9, Phillies 4: Bartolo Colon dominated, Michael Cuddyer homered. Basically, everyone on the roster is playing well except for Eric O'Flaherty. Bet that's awkward for him. Doesn't matter though, Mets now lead the division by 6.5 games.

-- Astros 6, Yankees 2: Old friend Collin McHugh pitched well and Evan Gattis homered twice. There's no shame in losing to the Astros this year.

-- Fire 3, Red Bulls 2: Despite a neat bit of trickery on a corner kick, the Red Bulls still saw their unbeaten streak end at six games.

-- The day ahead: The Mets go for the four-game sweep in Philadelphia.

--"The New York Mets fixed their biggest weakness, and now they look like one of baseball's scariest teams," by Business Insider's Scott Davis: "The New York Mets have transformed into one of baseball's scariest teams in one month. ... Since the trade deadline, the Mets are one of baseball's hottest teams, and amazingly, one of the most explosive offenses. They have a 20-8 record since July 24 and hold a five-and-a-half-game lead on the Nationals for first in the NL East."
