DE BLASIO TO BIDEN: DON'T BOTHER -- We don't need any more Democrats to run for president -- POLITICO New York's Dana Rubinstein: "Look, if you're talking about the state of the presidential race, I think it's pretty straightforward. We have a very impressive group of Democratic candidates right now," de Blasio told NY1, according to a transcript released by the station, which will air the interview Thursday evening. "I don't think we need additional candidates."
De Blasio managed Hillary Clinton's first campaign for the U.S. Senate, but in a bid to raise his national profile as a progressive leader, he has very publicly declined to endorse her just yet. "I still think there's some issues that we have to hear a little more on, but I think with each passing day she's put forward a stronger and clearer vision," de Blasio said last week. http://politi.co/1XRLKY5
EXPLAINING CUOMO -- "How governor went from dismissing NYC mayor's proposal for $13 wage floor to calling for $15 himself" -- WSJ's Eric Orden and Josh Dawsey: "Earlier this year, after New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio floated raising the minimum wage to $13 or more an hour, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo was dismissive. A 'non-starter' with lawmakers, the governor's aides said publicly. Privately, their language was even more colorful. ... Yet in a speech on Thursday, Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat, proposed raising the state's minimum wage to $15 per hour, up from $8.75 now. ... A confluence of factors seemed to bring him to that moment: accusations from liberals in New York that he had strayed from Democratic principles, polls demonstrating growing support for a higher wage, a sense the national Democratic Party was shifting left and the belief that Mr. Cuomo could make the issue a defining part of his legacy. ... Or as a former aide to Mr. Cuomo's father put it, 'it's a legacy item.' 'Same sex-marriage, gun control, minimum wage,' he said. "It's a trifecta.'" http://goo.gl/l0m1nt

ASSEMBLY PROBING SEXUAL HARASSMENT COMPLAINT AGAINST WOZNIAK-POLITICO New York's Jimmy Vielkind: "The Assembly's ethics committee is investigating a sexual harassment complaint against Angela Wozniak, a freshman legislator from suburban Buffalo who was elected in the wake of a previous sex scandal. An attorney for Wozniak, Steven M. Cohen, said the assemblywoman has spoken to investigators from the bipartisan committee and that he is sending computer records in response to their request. Cohen first confirmed the probe to Time Warner Cable News late Wednesday. The complainant is Elias Farah, according to Cohen and multiple outside sources with indirect knowledge of the situation. Farah is a former candidate for the Erie County legislature who joined Wozniak's Albany staff in April. According to a person familiar with the complaint, Farah alleges he was coerced into a sexual relationship with Wozniak while they were working in Albany. When others learned of the relationship, Farah stopped going to the office; records indicate he is still on the Assembly payroll, but Cohen said, "It is my understanding that he no longer shows up for work." http://politi.co/1K04X2p

POLICE RECORD -- Who tackled tennis star James Blake? -- WNYC's Robert Lewis: "The police officer who tackled a retired tennis star in an apparent case of mistaken identity this week was the subject of a WNYC investigation last year that revealed a history of civilian complaints. Police Officer James Frascatore was the plainclothes cop who body-slammed former tennis-pro James Blake on Wednesday, a law-enforcement official confirmed for WNYC. Frascatore was part of a plainclothes unit investigating credit-card fraud and identity theft when he mistakenly went after Blake, who bears a striking resemblance to a suspected fraudster. In December, WNYC reported that Frascatore was named in five civilian complaints during one seven-month period in 2013. The story, part of a series on police misconduct and discipline, included a recording of Frascatore and other officers arresting a mother in front of her crying children because she wasn't quick enough to hand over a bike they wanted as evidence. The Civilian Complaint Review Board said Frascatore made false statements under oath in that case, and referred the matter to the NYPD's Internal Affairs Bureau, records show. The NYPD declined to comment for that story." http://goo.gl/QQpedz
-- 'An Embarrassment': "[I]t was Mr. Bratton's acknowledgment that excessive force may have been used when an officer threw him to the ground that put a renewed national focus on the everyday arrest tactics long criticized by members of minority groups. The officers failed to report the mistaken arrest, as they were required to do, raising the possibility that it would not have come to light had Mr. Blake not spoken out. The incongruity of a Harvard-educated professional athlete being manhandled by six white plainclothes officers on a sidewalk in Midtown Manhattan quickly became an embarrassment for the Police Department and a headache for Mr. de Blasio, exposing the kind of unprovoked aggression that he and elected leaders across the country have sought to stamp out." Times' Benjamin Meuller, Al Baker and Liz Robbins: http://goo.gl/PoiXlE
--"People Are Filming the NYPD - And It's Making It Easier to Investigate Misconduct," by Vice's Tess Owen: "For many years, New York's Civilian Complaint Review Board (CCRB) - the agency that investigates complaints against NYPD officers - was a dysfunctional and notoriously inefficient kangaroo court that rarely reprimanded cops. But that seems to be changing. According to the CCRB's latest bi-annual report, far more claims of excessive force are now being fully investigated and substantiated than in previous years. CCRB chairman Richard Emery attributes the improved substantiation rate to the rise of civilian-recorded videos that catch police red-handed when they're behaving badly." http://bit.ly/1iixDuA
GRODENCHICK WINS CROWDED PRIMARY -- Former state assemblyman secures 28 percent of the vote -- POLITICO New York's Gloria Pazmino: Barry Grodenchik clinched the Democratic nomination for an open City Council seat on Thursday, defeating a crowded field of candidates that included a former aide to Mayor Bill de Blasio and the president of the one of the largest co-op associations in Queens.
-- Grodenchik, a lifelong resident of Queens who had the backing of the county's Democratic Party, along with the United Federation of Teachers, the Uniformed Firefighters Association and the Transportation Workers Union, won with nearly 28 percent of the vote according to the city's Board of Elections. Grodenchick will face off against Republican candidate Joseph Colcannon in November to fill a seat vacated by former councilman Mark Weprin, who stepped down earlier this year to take a job in the Cuomo administration. The district leans heavily Democratic. Only 6,740 voters turned out to the polls on Thursday, on a day in which candidates expected a particularly low turnout due to the off-year election and the rainy weather.
-- The numbers put the former Assemblyman just slightly ahead of Bob Friedrich, the president of one of the biggest co-op complexes in Queens, who came in second place with 1,554 votes, or 23 percent of the vote. Rebecca Lynch, who took a leave from the de Blasio administration to run for the seat, came in third place with 1,352 votes despite having the support of the the Working Families Party, several labor unions including the Teamsters Joint Council 16, and the City Council's Progressive Caucus. http://politi.co/1ERhYMW

ONE WAY TO DO IT -- "'Dr. Doom' economist Nouriel Roubini offering NYFW meditation sessions," by Post's Emily Smith and Ian Mohr: "Roubini, who is equally known for his model-packed hot tub parties at his Manhattan apartment as for his market predictions, is generously offering his pad for soothing 'special meditation sessions' - plus a dip in the tub - during New York Fashion Week. Famed economist Roubini - whose boisterous hot tub bacchanals have been a steaming source of anger for his East Village neighbors - will be hosting a meditation session with the Path at his triplex penthouse on Tuesday, followed by a promised plunge in his hallowed Jacuzzi." http://pge.sx/1O5dOUn
MEDICAL MARIJUANA INSURANCE COVERAGE-POLITICO New York's Josefa Velasquez: With about four months left before the state's medical marijuana program is slated to become fully operational, many insurers have no plans to cover the Schedule I drug under their current policies. Excellus BlueCross BlueShield, one of Western New York's largest insurers, only covers drugs approved by the Food and Drug Administration under its current policy, a spokesman told POLITICO New York. An Aetna spokesman echoed the sentiment, adding that the insurance company already covers Marinol, an FDA-approved drug that contains some of the same elements as marijuana and is used to treat nausea. Emblem Health, one of the state's largest insurance providers, also has no plans to cover medical marijuana. Medicaid will not cover it, either. "It has been a major concern for patients and families," said Julie Netherland, the deputy state director of the Drug Policy Alliance. "Some patients are going to simply be left behind because they're not going to be able to afford the medicine." http://politi.co/1M0hZh9
STATE JUDGE DISMISSES CHALLENGE TO UBER-Crain's Erik Engquist: A state judge has slammed the door on a legal challenge by opponents of Uber, clearing the way for the rideshare giant to run traditional taxis off the road. In a decision unveiled Wednesday, Queens Supreme Court Justice Allan Weiss ruled that for-hire vehicles could use electronic hails to compete with yellow cabs-something they have been doing well enough to threaten the existence of the iconic 80-year-old industry. If that means yellow-cab medallions worth a collective $10 billion or so just two years ago become worthless, the judge suggested, so be it. "Any expectation that the medallion would function as a shield against the rapid technological advances of the modern world would not have been reasonable," he wrote. "In this day and age, even with public utilities, investors must always be wary of new forms of competition arising from technological developments." http://bit.ly/1KHawGv
RAY KELLY defends his stop-and-frisk record -- POLITICO New York's Azi Paybarah: Former New York City police commissioner Ray Kelly on Thursday defended the widespread use of stop-and-frisk during his tenure and said the rate of stops here was lower than in other cities. "Not everybody liked stop-and-frisk. I understand that," Kelly, whose memoir about his life and tenure at the NYPD was released this week, told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos. "But if you go into communities of color, they're very much concerned about crime.
-- In his book, "Vigilance: My Life Serving America and Protecting Its Empire City," Kelly went further to defend his record. Kelly wrote in the book that when he returned to the NYPD in 2002 (he also served as commissioner from 1992-94), he kept Joe Esposito on as chief of department, the highest ranking uniformed position in the NYPD. "We have to put our hands on more people," Esposito said, according to Kelly. He also wrote ... "It's a legal, time-honored and effective crime-fighting technique. There is nothing inherently oppressive about it at all" and that "As time went on, our stop-question-and-frisk numbers went up - in part due to increased activity, in part due to better record keeping. ... This enhanced activity was a good thing as was the careful recording of it. It showed that police on the street were doing their jobs." http://goo.gl/yZdfYn
MEDIA MORNING -- "CNN Staffers Complain to Jeff Zucker About Obsessive Trump Coverage," by The Wrap's Jordan Chariton: "At a network town hall on Thursday, producers complained about the obsessive coverage the network has given the GOP frontrunner, including airing full campaign rallies and an endless amount of segments dedicated to Trump. One producer expressed concern that the network ... bumped an Anderson Cooper special on the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina last month to air a post-Trump-rally hour hosted by Don Lemon. On overall Trump coverage, Zucker simply responded 'we are not perfect.'" http://bit.ly/1i31uql

But It Makes Sense to Note How Jewish Politicians Came Down on the Iran Deal," by Slate's Joshua Keating: "After taking significant flak on social media that it definitely should have anticipated, the New York Times has significantly altered its graphic on the Democratic members of Congress who are opposing the Iran nuclear agreement, which originally noted, with helpful highlighting, if a member is Jewish. It was not a great look." http://slate.me/1J2gVEU
LESTER HOLT in PARADE, "The bass-playing anchor rediscovers weekends off," by Beverly Keel -- Q: "Is it different reporting the news vs. watching?" A: "After 9/11 it took almost a full year in which the flood of emotions came over me, because at the time we were so focused on covering this fast-moving story. We weren't experiencing it like the rest of America. We were in shock and horror, but the tears didn't really flow until the one-year anniversary, which hit me very hard. This is also nice." ... Q: "What do you love about working in news? A: "I love that I have a job where no two days are the same. I like the dynamic nature of what we do. We witness life turn on a dime and how people's lives can just flip-flop - a horrible tragedy, winning a $100 million lottery. We never know what is around the corner. That fascinates me and scares me." http://parade.com/lesterholt

SPEED READ -- "Four Years After a Fire, a Congregation Returns to Its Synagogue," by Times' Joseph Berger: "Four years ago, Rabbi Haskel Lookstein gazed with fear and sorrow at the smoke billowing from the roof of the synagogue in Manhattan he had presided over for more than three decades. But instead of lamenting what had been lost in the fire, he recalled, he found himself wondering what the building that would replace the structure would look like. ... On Thursday, just in time for the start of Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year, the rabbi formally got to see what his congregants did next. As scores of men and women danced horas with 13 Torahs and a huppah on 85th Street on the Upper East Side, Kehilath Jeshurun opened its doors again after the devastating fire in 2011 and a near-total reconstruction." http://nyti.ms/1LnAyce
REAL ESTATE -- POLITICAL CHATTER-"Mayor, REBNY talk 421-a, Times Square and crime at private meeting," by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: "Mayor Bill de Blasio and New York City's top real estate developers discussed the future of a state-controlled tax abatement during a closed-door meeting Thursday, multiple sources said. The fate of the 421-a tax break, which is to be decided this fall, was a primary focus during the mayor's meeting with the executive committee of the Real Estate Board of New York, sources privy to the discussion said.
"Negotiations over the measure will begin after the Jewish High Holidays. Per an agreement mandated by Governor Andrew Cuomo, real estate developers and construction trade unions must settle their dispute over whether to include a wage mandate in agreement that governs the tax break." http://politi.co/1iB3vKM
REMEMBERING SEPT. 11--"At Trade Center Towers, Outside Is In," by WSJ's Keiko Morris: "Most of the integration of the World Trade Center site into lower Manhattan has unfolded at ground level, as barricades fall and streets reopen. But it also is coming into view hundreds of feet up, as office-tower designs incorporate terraces and create buildings more open to the city than those of the old World Trade Center, which stood at a remove from the neighborhood. ...
"Fourteen years after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks on the Twin Towers, developers' vertical embrace of the outdoors gestures to the 2003 master plan for the area designed by Daniel Libeskind. The plan was never intended to set the specific site design but provide an outline that was expected to evolve, Mr. Libeskind said." http://on.wsj.com/1iBb4RV
--"The Things They Left Behind," by Times' David W. Dunlap: "Before the National September 11 Memorial Museum, an impromptu museum of World Trade Center artifacts existed in Hangar 17 at Kennedy International Airport, which the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey used to store as many as 1,284 objects. Today, the hangar is almost empty, because the authority has found homes for most of the artifacts. Those that remain - not yet picked up or claimed - paint a poignant picture of everyday life at the trade center before Sept. 11, 2001, and the recovery efforts that followed." http://nyti.ms/1L669Ub

"There are two important design objectives for me in thinking about the site, and one was to make absence sort of tangible and visible, and that sense of that violent rupture that occurred here; finding a way to capture that and that sense of ongoing absence and emptiness," he said. http://bit.ly/1J1eGl4
