By Azi Paybarah in Manhattan, Jimmy Vielkind in Albany, and Mike Allen in D.C., with Daniel Lippman

NOW, DE BLASIO ACKNOWLEDGES HOMELESS CRISIS -- POLITICO New York's Laura Nahmias and Azi Paybarah: New York City does have a major problem with homelessness, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Tuesday in an interview with WNYC's Brian Lehrer. The 15-minute interview came as de Blasio faces mounting criticism over the city's expanding homeless population. De Blasio emphasized repeatedly that he believed the homelessness problem had its roots in decades of national economic conditions and bad policy decisions that pre-date his administration.

-- "I think there is both a perception and a reality problem," de Blasio said , after a period of weeks in which he has alternately publicized the city's efforts to address homelessness and blamed the media and political critics for directing attention to the issue. "Yes, there is something real going on here," he said of the homelessness crisis, adding, "It is much more an economic problem than it's being acknowledged to be."

-- "After Playing Down a Homeless Crisis, de Blasio Changes Course" - Times' Matt Flegenheimer, Nikita Stewart and Mireya Navarro: " In mid-July, facing a swelling public outcry over street homelessness in New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio suggested that residents' eyes were deceiving them. 'Homelessness is not going up, thank God,' he said. ... Mr. de Blasio had begun to hedge by early August. "The numbers have not appreciably increased," he told reporters. On Tuesday, Mr. Lehrer summed up the mayor's bind before welcoming him to the airwaves. 'When The New York Post and the Coalition for the Homeless agree about something,' Mr. Lehrer said, 'it's probably happening.' ... City officials, including Ms. Barrios-Paoli, rebutted any suggestion that her departure came at the mayor's urging. (Asked last week by The New York Times if Ms. Barrios-Paoli was resigning, the mayor's office issued a sharp denial.) Ms. Barrios-Paoli, who turns 69 this week, said that quitting her high-pressured job 'was a gift to myself.'"

-- Newsday's headline: "Mayor Bill de Blasio: Increasingly visible homeless population is 'real' and they need city's help"

-- Newsweek's headline: "New York Mayor Bill de Blasio Swears Homelessness Is on the Decline"

-- Gothamist's headline: "De Blasio Wrestles With NYC Homeless Crisis Following Deputy Mayor's Departure"

AIDES GRUMBLE AT DE BLASIO'S MANAGEMENT STYLE -- WSJ's Josh Dawsey and Mara Gay: "The mayor often shows up at City Hall after 10 a.m. He calls young men in his administration 'dude' and gives high-fives and fist bumps when he is pleased. After 12 years of former Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a self-made billionaire with a corporate executive's approach to management, Mr. de Blasio has brought a decidedly different and sometimes unorthodox style to City Hall. ...

-- "Nearly every week, Mr. de Blasio holds late-night meetings, with aides taking black SUVs to Gracie Mansion, the mayor's residence. He sends emails to his staff long after midnight, asking aides about media coverage and various agency issues. ... [D]e Blasio often tells his staff he understands politics, citing his experience running campaigns and winning office multiple times. ... Some aides said the mayor's confidence in his own political instincts can make it hard to persuade him to move in a different direction. Despite frustrations, aides said they are loyal because they are proud of the administration's accomplishments and they like the mayor personally. ... When he served as the city's public advocate, he often drove staff members home and persistently urged those who smoked to quit. ... Mr. de Blasio typically begins his day by 7 a.m., first sending emails to aides and later exercising in Brooklyn. Aides have questioned the time of his gym routine, but they said Mr. de Blasio is committed to it."

PAGE SIX - "Ousted WABC reporter: I was 'fired for telling the truth,'" by Emily Smith: "Award-winning former WABC journalist Sarah Wallace is suing her ex-employer for gender discrimination in a bombshell $600,000 lawsuit - and will claim she was 'fired for telling the truth' about a murder. Wallace, 59, was ousted from her investigative reporter position at Channel 7's 'Eyewitness News' last winter after 30 years, 13 Emmys, a Peabody and two Edward R. Murrow Awards. She says in court papers that 'male employees [who] performed equal or less work' were paid more. She will also claim in soon-to-be-filed papers that she was axed after reporting on what she believes was a wrongful conviction. ... Wallace believes she was unfairly treated by her boss Camille Edwards, who is so tough she was nicknamed 'Camevil' by newsroom staff."

MEDIA MORNING -- "Bloomberg layoffs total 55, hit DC and sports desk hardest," by Talking Biz News' Chris Roush: "Layoffs at Bloomberg's editorial operations began Tuesday morning and totaled 55 in the United States - much less than the 80 to 100 estimates ... The cuts hit the Washington newsroom and the sports desk the hardest. Bloomberg had also conducted some layoffs in Washington in August 2014. Bloomberg News had also made some layoffs in November 2013. One staffer who remained at Bloomberg said the layoffs were lower than expected because of a number of voluntary departures and retirements in recent weeks."

--"Fox News anchor sues Hasbro over toy rodent with same name," by N.Y. Post's Kate Sheehy: "In her $5 million federal lawsuit, Harris Faulkner of Fox News Channel says she suffered 'emotional damage' after the company gave her name to a character in its popular Littlest Pet Shop toy line. Hasbro's Harris Faulkner is a tiny tan-and-white hamster with blue eyes and a butterfly perched on its head - but it's still a little too close for comfort for the Emmy-award-winning journalist. ... 'Hasbro's portrayal of Faulkner as a rodent is demeaning and insulting,' the anchor of 'Fox Report Weekend' says in her suit."

--"'Today' show set is getting a makeover," by Post's Ian Mohr: "NBC's 'Today' show studio is getting a face-lift for fall, and viewers can expect to see less orange in the morning - and we are not talking about Matt Lauer's tan. Spies told Page Six that even though the show's Studio 1A at 30 Rock was overhauled in 2013, producers are again 'freshening up' the design. The new look debuts Tuesday. 'We're giving the studio a back-to-school makeover,' said 'Today' Senior VP Noah Oppenheim. "It will feel brighter, more modern ... and a little less orange."

WILL HIS DIRECTIONS BE TRUTHY? "Stephen Colbert can now give you directions in Waze," by The Verge's Chris Welch: "You'll be able to hear Colbert - set to debut on The Late Show on September 8th - until September 22nd. ... 'For years, I navigated the roadways using a compass, a sextant and the guidance offered by the stars,' Colbert said in a statement. 'But now I can just listen to my own dulcet tones instructing me on Waze.' Waze is also adding Neil Patrick Harris and Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots as other voice options."

FRANK SERPICO FOR TOWN BOARD - Times Union's Chris Churchill: "Look out, world. Frank Serpico is running for office. He's a Democratic candidate for the Stuyvesant Town Board. Serpico, of course, is the former New York City cop whose fight against police corruption was memorably played by Al Pacino. He's lived for decades in a rustic cabin on 45 wooded acres in rural Columbia County, mostly avoiding publicity. But that changed when he became embroiled in a bitter dispute with a neighboring property owner who Serpico accused of trespassing on his land, disrespecting the environment and knocking down trees on Serpico's land."

POLICE AND DE BLASIO -- Paul Bacon in the Observer: "Almost everywhere I went as a beat cop in South Harlem, I felt welcome. I joined the NYPD right after the September 11th attacks ... Now, almost 14 years later, some cops feel as if public opinion has turned against them. ... [L]ike every other cop I spoke with, [Officer Broderick, not his real name] said he was flabbergasted when Mayor Bill de Blasio seemed to insinuate that his police force was rife with racists. ... I felt sorry for Mayor de Blasio when every cop I interviewed cast him as the enemy."

BRATTON EMBRACES A MOYNIHAN REPORT -- POLITICO New York's Azi Paybarah: At the beginning of the year, Bratton responded to a nationwide series of protests following the killings of unarmed black men by police officers in Missouri and Staten Island by making a heartfelt plea for police and residents to "see each other." On Tuesday, appearing on MSNBC's Morning Joe program, Bratton emphasized a different part of the equation, and went further than in the past. He seemingly embraced a controversial report issued a half-century ago by a young official in the administration of Lyndon Johnson. The document bore the formal title of "The Negro Family: The Case For National Action." It is more commonly called the Moynihan report, after its author, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, future U.S. senator from New York.

-- Post headline: "Bratton blames murder spike on 'crumbling' black families"

CUOMO KEEPS PUSHING ON UPSTATE ECONOMY: The governor's office released a 1,979-word Huffington Post op-ed that details the Democratic governor's efforts to spur the upstate economy. The effort comes two days after a secession rally in Chenango County, and as Cuomo announced a $50 million facelift for the state fairgrounds in suburban Syracuse. It also comes as Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie has toured the districts of his upstate members. Cuomo's op-ed notes he has cut business taxes, created a statewide system of economic development councils, introduced a competitive element to funding projects and is brokering another competition for $1.5 billion in on-time surplus funds. The governor reiterated that regions should present "propositions for actual pending transactions."

-- Cuomo acknowledged at the State Fair that more work needs to be done in the Southern Tier. "You know, the state can only do so much and then it's up to the localities to also come up with a business plan," he said. "But [the] Southern Tier, we have more work to do, there's no doubt about it. But overall, the arrows in every region are pointed up, and we just have to build on that."

COURT OF APPEALS WON'T HEAR CHIMP RIGHTS CASE - POLITICO New York's Colby Hamilton: The state's highest court won't hear the appeal of two cases that sought to provide a pair of chimpanzees rights normally reserved for humans. The Nonhuman Rights Project had argued that the captivity of the two chimps - Kiko, owned by a Niagara Falls couple, and Tommy, owned by a Fulton County couple - violated their rights. It sought a change to the conditions of their confinement, along with their release to a sanctuary in Florida. But Court of Appeals spokesman Gary Spencer said this would have required recognition that a chimp qualifies as a "person" under state law. "With the Court of Appeals refusing to hear the cases, this should be the end of the line for Tommy and Kiko unless the Nonhuman Rights Project takes it to the U.S. Supreme Court," Spencer said in a statement.

BIKE BEAT -- "First Citi Bike Stations Roll Out on Upper East and Upper West Sides," by DNAinfo's Shaye Weaver: "The first Citi Bike stations rolled out on the Upper East and Upper West sides on Tuesday morning. Commuters can now pick up a Citi Bike from two brand new stations at East 67th Street and Lexington Avenue, and West 63rd Street and Broadway. The rest of the locations are expected to be installed by the end of this month."

HILLARYWATCH -- "The 11 gushiest emails in Hillary's inbox," by Nick Gass: "New Year's wishes ... The Oscars and politics ... Praise from Gordon Brown ... 'Great ideas (no surprise)' ... 'My favorite secretary of state' ... Diane Reynolds'/Chelsea's 'favorite secretary' ... 'Hillary would approve ... not too many swear words' [from Harvey Weinstein] ... 'I love you. I respect you. I miss you.' ... 'Please please please * note there are *three pleases' ... A longtime staffer's departure ... 'Let's hear it for the nuns'."

TRUMP TALK -- "Donald Trump Returning to NBC for 'Tonight Show' Appearance," by The Hollywood Reporter's Kate Stanhope: "The Republican presidential candidate and former Celebrity Apprentice host will stop by The Tonight Show on Sept. 11."

REAL ESTATE -- LANDMARKS FACEOFF-"Showdown looming over controversial landmarks bill," by Crain's Joe Anuta: "Opponents and supporters of a City Council proposal that would impose time limits on the Landmarks Preservation Commission are girding themselves for a public hearing next week. Preservation groups including the Historic Districts Council and the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation blasted out an email Monday criticizing the bill, which would give the commission a year to decide on an individual landmark and two years on a neighborhood or district once a proposal for historic status has been made. ...

"But on the other side, union, real estate and affordable groups, along with the Archdiocese of New York and the Manhattan and Brooklyn chambers of commerce, are amassing support of their own and are also expected to testify in favor of the proposed legislation."

STAIRCASE TO NOWHERE-Bloomberg-era health initiative hits dead end, by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: "As his third term was winding down in July 2013, former mayor Michael Bloomberg made one final effort to slim down New York's collective waistline-a proposal to enhance stairwell access in all new construction. Developers, who rarely embrace additional mandates on their buildings, shunned the idea. At the time they raised safety concerns.

"For now, it seems they've gotten their way. More than two years after one of Bloomberg's last public health pushes, the idea has gone nowhere, although the de Blasio administration on Tuesday voiced an interest in resurrecting it."

CROWD CONTROL-"Manhattan Gets First Crowdfunded Condos," by Bloomberg's David M. Levitt and Oshrat Carmiel: "New York's first real estate project financed significantly though crowdfunding is set to open, a step forward for a nascent investing model that has yet to prove itself in commercial property. AKA United Nations, an extended-stay hotel-condominium on East 46th Street near Second Avenue, will start taking guests Sept. 10. Sales of the suites have already begun. Of the $95 million it cost to buy and fix up the existing hotel, $12 million was raised from online pledges."
