POLITICO New York Playbook: UBER vs. City Hall Round 2 -- GEORGINA BLOOMBERG's new flame - CAREY GABAY, 43

09/17/2015 07:10AM EDT

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

ON TAMING TIMES SQUARE -- Times' Charles Bagli: "The City of New York should set aside areas in Times Square exclusively for the topless painted women, costumed characters and other cash solicitors who have proliferated among the hundreds of thousands of tourists and office workers who ply the neighborhood every day, according to a report by a coalition of elected officials, property owners and business leaders.

-- "The report, scheduled to be released on Thursday, comes the same day Mayor Bill de Blasio's new task force will meet for the first time to discuss how to handle the rapid increase of topless women who solicit cash for photos on the Times Square pedestrian plazas. The women's images have been splashed across the front page of the city's tabloids in recent weeks, prompting Mr. de Blasio to promise action to control their behavior. ... The coalition is asking the city to legally redefine Times Square but is not calling for a ban that might run afoul of First Amendment protections ... But no one in the coalition wants to eliminate the plaza." http://goo.gl/PK5P9W

UBER VS CITY HALL, ROUND 2 -- WSJ's Josh Dawsey and Mara Gay: "Uber Technologies Inc. is raising doubts about a city traffic study targeted at the app-driven car-service by commissioning its own study of the issue. The move may signal another collision between the company and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's administration.

-- "Uber hired a firm to make recommendations about how a study should be done and said the city was moving too quickly with its study, which the company agreed to participate in. The city's study is due to be completed in November. Meanwhile, the company plans to expand upstate as soon as next month, launching an effort to build business and political support outside the city, according to people familiar with the matter.

-- "City Hall is paying McKinsey & Co. about $2 million for its congestion study, which is designed to look at the effect of for-hire vehicles on traffic, air quality and other factors. Mr. de Blasio has said the car service has caused traffic problems. ... As part of an agreement, the car service said it would turn over data for the congestion study. When asked if Uber had provided the required data, a spokeswoman for the mayor declined to comment." http://goo.gl/OpcYyb

HILLARY'S FUNDRAISER AT NOTORIOUS STATEN ISLAND 'WHITE HOUSE'-- Post's Bruce Golding: "It was an offer she couldn't refuse - a lucrative fund-raising event in the notorious Staten Island mansion built by mob boss Paul Castellano. Hillary Clinton - whose private computer server is being tested by the FBI for traces of 'wiped' emails - ignored the symbolism of setting foot inside a house once bugged by the feds for a $2,700-a-head party for her presidential campaign Wednesday night at the late Mafia chief's compound.

-- "The Todt Hill manse - called the "White House' by both gangsters and the FBI during Castellano's reign as head of the Gambino crime family - is now owned by Selim 'Sal' Rusi, who paid $3.1 million for it in 2000. Rusi, a Republican, said he agreed to host the political fundraiser for his dad, who 'worships' Clinton and hubby Bill for supporting ethnic Albanians when he was president during the late 1990s war in Kosovo. Rusi expected around 100 attendees from New York's Albanian-American community to hear a speech and pose for photos with the former Secretary of State." http://goo.gl/Gtpxd4

DE BLASIO'S EDUCATION AGENDA -- POLITICO New York's Eliza Shapiro: Mayor Bill de Blasio unveiled a slew of new education initiatives on Wednesday, supplementing his administration's key education agenda item - universal pre-kindergarten - with programs for students in grades K-12. Critics have questioned when de Blasio would announce the bulk of his education policies, considering he has focused mainly on pre-K and the city's 94 struggling "Renewal Schools" since taking office. The mayor answered that call Wednesday with a wide-ranging speech delivered at Bronx Latin School, pledging $186 million a year beginning in 2021 on new Advanced Placement courses, computer science courses in all city schools, Algebra and reading help and more college guidance. ... "A lot of this [speech] is things I've believed since I took over, so none if it is a surprise," City Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña said. http://goo.gl/0WoZdM

SOFTBALL: De Blasio staff is playing the City Council in a softball game on Staten Island, starting at 7 p.m. at the Richmond County Bank Ballpark in St. George. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and admission is free. Details, via S.I. Advance's Anna Sanders: http://goo.gl/Wqd2us

SNEAK PEEK -- Fresh off the Uber campaign, Metropolitan Public Strategies hired a new Director of Data/Analytics: Akram Hasanov. He was most recently at State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's office as a key part of team that led the national mortgage settlement with the big banks in 2012. MPS' founder Neal Kwatra said in a statement, "Akram is a talented analyst who brings a unique skill set to our team. While at the Attorney General's office, his data-driven work helped build some of the most important cases brought by that office. We are really excited to add his strategic perspective and use of the latest analytic tools to our campaigns."

STEWART in DC -- "Mr. Stewart goes to Washington: With scolding and jokes, the comedian took on Congress over funding for 9/11 survivors," by Politico's Noah Weiland: "Jon Stewart arrived outside Congress Wednesday in a t-shirt, khakis, and boots, ready to spar with Congress over funding for 9/11 first responders. ... Stewart and others want a permanent extension of the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, which provides annual health care and compensation for World Trade Center survivors and responders." http://politi.co/1KiY2PV

TABS -- Post: "'Beautiful Carly trumps The Donald'" and bottom banner: "Dolans sell Cablevision to French" -- News: "All about Trump in 'junior high' debate: CLOWN NEWS NETWORK: Hosts can't control GOP's petty sludge; Carly put Donald in his place as insults fly" -- amNY: "VICTORY FOR 9/11 HEROES: On day Jon Stewart lobbies in DC, leaders vow to extend Zadroga Act" -- El Diario [translated]: Cheated: An elderly woman from Queens falls into the trap and has $90,000 stolen.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "I need a PR company to recover from working for a PR company." -- Anthony Weiner, who is out of a job at MWW, via POLITICO New Jersey's Matt Friedman: http://goo.gl/MMgmQY Page Six: http://pge.sx/1iRgyb7

HAPPY BIRTHDAY: TJ Helmstetter, regional spokesman for the Democratic National Committee.

'I DO NOT WANT TO LIVE IN A WORLD WITHOUT BILL HAMMOND'S COMMENTARY' - Alexis Grenell in City and State: "At first blush, Bill Hammond appears to be a mild mannered intellectual, unremarkable in a uniform of blue jeans and a blazer. You will never hear him pontificate, although his furrowed brow is a sure sign he has something to say. He barely ever speaks above a whisper, but give him a pen and his voice roars off the page. Agree or disagree with him, when Bill Hammond writes, he must be read." http://bit.ly/1OxstXH

-- Hammond was laid off Wednesday. Joe Pompeo has full details of the downsizing, which will continued today. http://politi.co/1LzbZck

-- Here are Hammond's thoughts on Troopergate, the State Senate coup, Carl Paladino, same-sex marriage, the SAFE Act, the potential promise of new Albany leaders Eliot Spitzer, David Paterson , Dean Skelos , the downfall of Client Nine, David Paterson, and Dean Skelos, and Cuomo calling for reform yet accepting huge donations in 2006, 2012, and 2015.

CAMPBELL BROWN OPENS THE BUSINESS COUNCIL - POLITICO New York's Jimmy Vielkind in Bolton Landing: As protesters denounced her as a "puppet for billionaires," former television news anchor Campbell Brown pitched the state's largest business group on her lawsuit against teacher tenure, imploring them to support charter schools and do more to take on the teachers unions who mocked her in effigy. "It's a battle. It's a battle every single day. It's not going away because there's no compromise possible," Brown told the Business Council of New York State Wednesday evening at its annual conference. "It is about us letting our political leaders know that this is a test of who they are. This is right versus wrong and there is no middle ground. It's letting them know that whatever political wheeling and dealing takes place, these decisions have a direct impact on the lives of these children.

Her speech keynoted the opening evening of a three-day conference here, where representatives from the state's major industries mingle over wine and hors d'oeuvres. The event is always infused with state officials, and this year Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul arrived for an "unscripted" welcome address, in which she said the Cuomo administration was "1,000-percent laser focused" on creating jobs. "Please consider me a friend and an ally. We cannot have the state we have without all of you investing in us, and believing in us," Hochul, a former congresswoman who oversaw lobbying for M&T Bank before Cuomo named her his lieutenant last year. http://politi.co/1OgAjWx

CAREY GABAY, 43 - Winnie Hu and Benjamin Mueller for the Times: "A Cuomo administration lawyer who was shot in the head during a predawn celebration before the West Indian American Day Parade last week died on Wednesday evening, according to a friend of his family. The lawyer, Carey W. Gabay, 43, was a bystander caught in a shootout in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, that the police believe to have been between gangs. Mr. Gabay was taken to Kings County Hospital Center, where he was in critical condition in a coma in recent days. His family and friends had been keeping vigil there. He was declared brain-dead on Tuesday night, and then taken off a respirator." http://nyti.ms/1Ye7cXt

PAGE SIX - "Georgina Bloomberg has found love again with ESPN anchor," by Emily Smith: "After splitting with the equestrian father of her young son, Georgina Bloomberg - former Mayor Michael Bloomberg's spirited daughter - has found love again. ... The 32-year-old billionaire Bloomberg heiress has been posting pictures of her new relationship with Weissman, who is a host of ESPN's 'SportsCenter.' The lovebirds were pictured on her Instagram kissing on the beach in Santa Monica, Calif., and she wrote, 'Turns out the West Coast isn't so bad at all.' Weissman also posted a shot of the happy new couple yachting into the sunset over the holiday weekend, with the caption, 'Happy Labor Day! Sailboats and sunsets with @georginabloomberg.' They have been dating since the start of the summer." With pix http://pge.sx/1MdFMd

RIKERS DATA -- Council committee approves Department of Correction reform bills -- POLITICO New York's Gloria Pazmino: The City Council committee on fire and criminal justice unanimously approved a package of reporting bills on Wednesday that will require the Department of Correction to submit detailed data to the Council and the public on a range of issues, including the department's use of force and the number of visits inmates receive.

Greater oversight: Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley, a Democrat from Queens who sponsored part of the legislation, said the bills will improve jail operations and give the Council greater oversight of the department and Rikers Island, which Crowley said has been "plagued by increasing incidents of violence for far too long." The legislative package also includes a proposal which would create an "inmate bill of rights and code of conduct," to be written in plain language and given to all inmates upon entering Rikers Island. "This would clear the lines of communication between inmates and staff, conveying to them behavior requirements and their right to services such as medical care and visitation," Crowley said. http://politi.co/1LyPBjk

EAT BEAT - "The best new cookies, pizza and burgers to pig out on this fall," by Post's Hailey Eber and Beth Landman: "Bagels and nosh ... The sweet is on! ... The fry's the limit ... Midtown gets the munchies ... Oui not?! ... We've got the beef! ... Other openings of note." http://bit.ly/1ij3Npo

MEDIA MORNING - "Mathew Katz joins TIME as News Editor. Matt was previously a reporter and then an editor at the local New York City news website DNAinfo and a reporter for public radio station KDNK in Western Colorado. A Columbia Journalism School graduate, Matt's work has appeared on National Public Radio, the CBC and the BBC."

Wesley comes to The Times from Grantland ... Jennifer Senior will be joining The New York Times as a book critic focusing on nonfiction ... [and] comes to us from New York Magazine."

--"Vogue Launches First-Ever Podcast, Hosted By André Leon Talley," by HuffPost's Julee Wilson: "'I've been a longtime storyteller at Vogue and it's just another format for telling stories -- as at Vogue, we love to tell the story of style, fashion, and what is absolutely a part of the culture at the moment,' Talley told The Huffington Post. The inaugural episode features none other than Vogue's legendary editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, who waxes poetic about Givenchy's first New York Fashion Week show, Beyoncé, and who also gives her opinion on Kanye West's alleged quest for the presidency." http://huff.to/1gsf1GT The podcast: http://vogue.cm/1LyZjT4

THE TALK OF WALL STREET - "The Weekend Client Raid That Blew Up: How a Brokerage Battle Went Public," by Bloomberg's Neil Weinberg : "The weekend client raid is an open secret. A financial adviser quits late on a Friday and spends the next couple of days helping his new employer solicit his old customers. There's even a broker pact that suggests it is all a refined gentleman's game. Until things fall apart. A new arbitration case alleges that Oppenheimer & Co. stepped well beyond the bounds of propriety in mounting a client raid over a three-day weekend earlier this summer. Such incursions are common ... What's unusual is for details of these raids to become public, in part thanks to an industry pact that governs broker job-hopping in an effort to tamp down litigation. The Oppenheimer matter -- told through arbitration and court filings, letters and e-mails -- provides a vivid study of some of the new strains to the old ground rules of client raiding." http://bloom.bg/1gtIv7b

REAL ESTATE -- RENTAL BUST-"Tenant Loses Apartment Over Market-Rate Rentals," by New York Law Journal's Andrew Denney: "A tenant illegally profited from her rent-stabilized apartment by renting rooms to more than 100 guests through AirBnB at 2 1/2 times her monthly rent and jeopardized the security of fellow tenants by giving her guests the access code for her building, a Housing Court judge ruled. Writing in 335-7 LLC v. Steele, 77007/11, Manhattan Housing Court Judge Phyllis Saxe awarded on Aug. 6 a final judgment of possession against Tracy Steele, who rented a three-bedroom apartment at 337 West 14th Street, located in the West Village." http://bit.ly/1QGJn5E

KING'S CORNER-"Brooklyn rents hit record high in August," by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: "Brooklyn's hot rental market is showing no signs of cooling, with prices last month hitting a record high, according to the latest Elliman report. The median monthly rent in the borough was $3,112 in August, a 10.8-percent increase from August 2014, when the median rent was $2,808. ... In another indicator of Brooklyn's high rents, August marked the first time the borough's median price topped $3,000, according to Elliman." http://politi.co/1OgxiFC

TRUMP TROUBLE-"Donald Trump's Manhattan buildings are being outperformed 10% over by comparable city towers," by News' Katherine Clarke: "Republican candidate Donald Trump calls his GOP rivals losers-but the term more accurately applies to owners of apartments in his buildings. That's because apartments in Trump's Manhattan buildings are appreciating at a significantly slower pace than units in comparable buildings across the city. No one is forced into bankruptcy, of course, but Trump owners are simply doing worse than other sellers." http://nydn.us/1OgxLrx

THE HOME TEAMS -- POLITICO New York's Howard Megdal: Marlins 6, Mets 0: A rough night for Bartolo Colon. The offense was quiet. Don't panic: the magic number is still just ten.

-- Yankees 3, Rays 1: Another strong start for the young phenom Luis Severino, an RBI double for Greg Bird, followed by a homer from Bird in the ninth. Bird's really going to help this team- and he already is.

-- Revolution 2, Red Bulls 1: Tough, physical game with a pair of early goals was decided by a Kelyn Rowe goal in the 65th minute to put the Revolution back into first place in the Eastern Conference.

-- NYCFC 2, Toronto FC 0: Incredibly, Frank Lampard scored AND the NYCFC defense held Sebastian Giovinco in check.

-- New sports podcast: Columbia University's football team is 0-21 -- after losing every game for two consecutive seasons. WNYC's Ilya Marritz takes a look at the team as they start a new season and try breaking that streak. -- Azi HEAR THE INTRO: http://www.wnyc.org/shows/theseason/

#UpstateAmerica: A Tonawanda car salesman is raising money to bring the Guinness Book of World Records to Orchard Park Sunday to measure an attempt by Bills fans to make the loudest crowd noise ever recorded in an outdoor stadium. http://bit.ly/1grZruE
