POLITICO New York Playbook: PREET digs into Cuomo's Buffalo bucks -- DE BLASIO to appear on This Week -- CHRISTINE QUINN on her new job

09/18/2015 07:34AM EDT

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

PREET ON THE PROWL -- "Bharara investigating Cuomo's pricey Buffalo Billion project," by Post's Carl Campanile and Bruce Golding: "Manhattan US Attorney Preet Bharara has expanded his anti-corruption crusade to the far western edge of the state - investigating Gov. Cuomo's controversial Buffalo Billion revitalization project ... The probe of Cuomo's pet project is the first to touch his office beyond Bharara's investigation of the governor's shutdown of the Moreland Commission to Investigate Public Corruption last year. The new investigation is focused on the multimillion-dollar contracts awarded to build facilities for high-tech, drug-development and clean-energy businesses."

DE BLASIO PREPS FOR 2nd TERM, WILL TALK TO 'REAL NEW YORKERS -- Town Hall meetings too -- Daily News' Juan Gonzalez: "Mayor de Blasio is already fashioning his appeal to New Yorkers for a second term in office. ... The first nearly two years 'created the basic infrastructure for so much of what we want to do,' the mayor said in a wide-ranging interview Thursday with the Daily News Editorial Board. 'Now is the time to go out to the world and talk about that.'

-- "In the coming months, de Blasio is planning a series of public events, town hall meetings and media interviews to tell his story, he said. ... 'I'm going to be doing a lot of that, talking to real New Yorkers and answering their concerns,' he said."

-- Flashback, May 18, 2015, Newsday: "DeBlasio: No plans for town hall meetings"

TV THIS SUNDAY -- ABC's "This Week": de Blasio discusses the race for the Democratic nomination for president.

DE BLASIO'S MTA CONCERNS - Daily News' Jennifer Fermino: "Before Mayor de Blasio 'blindly' hands over $1.5 billion to the state for the MTA, he says, Gov. Cuomo must lay out a vision for the agency and guarantee the funds will be used for desperately needed improvements. Hizzoner said he'd consider helping the Metropolitan Transportation Authority - a state agency - if he genuinely thought it would reduce fares. 'The governor should come forward with a vision for how he's going to provide the resources he claims he's going to provide,' de Blasio said in an interview Thursday with the Daily News Editorial Board in which he touched on his issues with Hillary Clinton, how he's perceived by New Yorkers, and his regrets from his first year in office." ... The MTA backed Cuomo. 'This is nothing more than rhetoric from a mayor who refuses to support mass transit. The state has stepped up and committed to fund $8.3 billion toward our capital program in a 'lockbox' that will only be used for capital expenses. There are no more excuses,' said MTA President Thomas Prendergast."

NY LAWMAKER PLAYS HERO -- "Queens lawmaker chases, tackles alleged purse-snatcher," by Post's Carl Campanile and Natalie Musumeci: "A Queens lawmaker on Thursday chased down a beggar who allegedly robbed a stroller mom, and tackled and held the suspect until cops arrived. Assemblyman Ron Kim (D-Flushing) was parking his car near his office at about 1 p.m. when he spotted the vagrant darting down Main Street after allegedly swiping the woman's purse from the stroller near 37th Avenue. 'I saw a person running down Main Street and he was obviously running away from something,' Kim said. 'It was very quick.'"

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "If there are ways to work productively with this governor, we will do so," Amy Spitalnick, a spokesperson for de Blasio, said about a new Quinnipiac Poll. "If New York City is getting the short end of the stick from the state, we will continue to call that out."

BUSINESS COUNCIL OPEN TO CUOMO - POLITICO New York's Jimmy Vielkind from Bolton Landing: Even as he pushes a minimum wage hike that sends shivers down some of their spines, the state's business leaders aren't giving up on Gov. Andrew Cuomo. "Eighty percent of what he's done has been extremely beneficial to business," state Business Council President Heather Briccetti said, noting the state's property tax cap and budgets that have kept the growth of state spending to less than two percent annually. "We don't agree on everything ... I recognize that the political pressure to increase the wage is going to be intense."

The feeling here at the Sagamore, an island resort in Lake George that's the site of the council's annual fall conference, is that Cuomo may have gone astray on this proposal, but still is their guy. When the governor addresses the group on Friday morning, he'll be facing allies who he has spent five years putting at the table. The leaders of the Business Council's board are both co-chairs of regional economic development panels that Cuomo has granted some say in steering state funding. In 2014, about a week before Cuomo won the Business Council's endorsement for his re-election bid, the Democratic governor walked into the Sagamore ballroom with his arm draped across Briccetti's shoulders. He announced a plan, now being implemented, to spend $1.5 billion to spur the upstate economy.

So instead of harsh denunciations, Briccetti said she was hopeful she could find "ways to soften the blow." Bob Duffy, the former lieutenant governor who escaped the Cuomo administration to become president of the Rochester Business Alliance, said he was confident there would be "an offset to the business community where [a minimum wage hike] will hopefully become almost cost-neutral."

-- A new poll found 62 percent of New Yorkers support a $15 minimum wage.

-- Briccetti re-affirmed her fear of a State Senate controlled by Democrats.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "It's irrelevant to me if people think I am winning this feud with the mayor," -- Governor Andrew Cuomo on his ongoing fight with Mayor Bill de Blasio.

BONUS QUOTE OF THE DAY: There was "certainly a lot of support for keeping the plazas and a recognition by the city that they're going to move to completion of the plazas." -- Councilman Dan Garodnick, after a meeting of a task force addressing issues at Times Square.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Retired broadcaster Ken Screven, Kristin Legere Blain of Environmental Advocates, liberal activist Susan Weber (Friday), lobbyist John Cordo (Saturday), Conservative Party executive director Shaun Marie, ex-Rep. Joe DioGuardi and CWA economist Pete Sikora (Sunday).

MEDIA MORNING -- "MSNBC Changes Lineup to Sharpen Hard News Focus," by Times' Emily Steel: "Kate Snow ... will anchor news coverage at MSNBC from 3 to 5 p.m. during the week and anchor the Sunday edition of 'NBC Nightly News.' Chuck Todd ... will host a new daily show at 5 p.m. called 'MTP Daily' starting Sept. 28 ...

"Izzy Povich [is] named the executive producer of morning news coverage and Pat Burkey the executive producer of afternoon news coverage. The changes coincide with the return of [Brian] Williams ... [who] will start Tuesday in his new role as an anchor of breaking news and special reports at MSNBC, coinciding with Pope Francis's arrival in Washington."

POLL: CUOMO WINNING FIGHT AS NEW YORK LOSES -- "Clash Between Cuomo and de Blasio Has Hurt New York, Voters Say in Poll," by Times' Alex Burns: "The feud between Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio is a bitter battle of attrition that voters believe has harmed New York State, a Quinnipiac University poll released on Thursday says. In the survey, 57 percent of voters said Mr. Cuomo and Mr. de Blasio, both Democrats, were locked in a political feud. Only 15 percent said they were working together effectively. Among those who said there was a feud between the two politicians, 78 percent said it had harmed the people of the state. ... Mr. Cuomo was widely seen as having bested Mr. de Blasio in political combat, and was viewed more favorably than the mayor among voters in New York City."

-- While de Blasio wins ... at softball -- S.I. Advance's Anna Sanders: "Mayor Bill de Blasio has found redemption on Staten Island. The de Blasio administration won a softball game against the City Council 13 to 12 on Thursday night, emerging victorious after a rematch at the home of the Staten Island Yankees. ... de Blasio: "We had a noble opponent, it went down to the last pitch -- that's the way it should be."

-- "The game went into extra innings after being tied at the bottom of the 7th. Both sides agreed to continue playing at the urging of a small but raucous crowd that wanted a clear winner to emerge from Richmond County Bank Ballpark in St. George. ... The otherwise friendly night was partially clouded by a small group of protesters invoking the death of Eric Garner, who died just a few blocks from the ballpark during an arrest attempt on Bay Street last summer. The protesters began to chant as the stadium became quiet for the singing of the national anthem."

BOYLAND SENTENCED - POLITICO New York's Colby Hamilton: Former state assemblyman William Boyland Jr. was sentenced to 14 years in prison Thursday. Boyland was convicted in March 2014 of bribery, extortion and other charges in March 2014, in federal prosecutors' second attempt to convict the scion of the Brooklyn political family. Boyland beat his initial bribery charges in Manhattan in 2011. "As he demonstrated time and again, Boyland, a lawmaker himself, lacked any respect for either the law or his constituents who elected him," acting Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Kelly Currie said in a statement announcing the sentence Thursday. "Officials who would seek to sell the power and influence of their office to the highest bidder are on notice that they will be held to account for their crimes."

MAYOR'S MANAGEMENT REPORT: HOMELESS POPULATION ON THE RISE -- POLITICO New York's Laura Nahmias: Mayor de Blasio's administration released a comprehensive picture of the city's ongoing homeless problem Thursday, showing average nightly numbers of homeless single adults, adult families and families with children have all increased by double-digit percentages in the past year.

-- The numbers: In fiscal year 2015, which ended on June 30, a total 18,091 single adults, 12,671 families with children and 1,385 adult families entered the system, the report showed. The report, echoing the argument made by homeless housing advocates and de Blasio's administration in recent years, says the number of New Yorkers using emergency shelter has increased every year since 2011, when the state eliminated funding for a homeless housing subsidy program known as Advantage. The city subsequently ended the program.

-- Mixed results: The average length of stay for families with children in shelter increased only slightly, from 427 days in fiscal year 2014 to 430 days in fiscal year 2015. The city had mixed results in its efforts to minimize shelter residents returning to shelter within one year of leaving. While the percentage of single adults returning to city shelters decreased this year from last year, the percent of both adult families and families with children who left shelter only to return to it within a year's time has increased. There were some bright spots. The city was able to double the number of chronically homeless individuals placed in permanent housing this year, when 1,101 such individuals were helped, compared to 562 people in fiscal year 2014.

Other report highlights:
-- Traffic fatalities fall under de Blasio, as do new bike lanes:
-- Sanitation notches small gain in recycling rates:
-- Mayor's report finds slight decrease in DOI arrests:
-- An uptick in gang activity, and NYPD response times:

RIKERS PROPOSALS CLEAR CITY COUNCIL -- POLITICO New York's Gloria Pazmino: The City Council unanimously approved a package of bills Thursday that will require the Department of Correction to provide the city and the public with detailed information about inmates at the jail, including their ethnicity, bail requirements and who comes to visit them. The legislation, sponsored by Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley among others, will also require that the DOC create a plainly written inmate bill of rights. "These bills aim to clear the line of communications between inmates, staff and city officials," Crowley said. The eight bills were approved, 45-0.

-- Not good enough: Norman Seabrook, president of the Correction Officers' Benevolent Association, said the bills are a good first step, but that not enough is being done to address the needs of correction officers he said are often attacked by inmates. "These measures do not do nearly enough to address the violent atmosphere that persists on Rikers Island and endangers our officers every day," Seabrook said in a statement. "The City Council can enact all the increased data reporting measures it wants, but we need a real conversation with everyone at the table to address the root of the problem - and the first step is ensuring the voices of our members are heard."

LONG HAUL -- Long commute times -- POLITICO New York's Bill Mahoney: Bronx residents now have the country's second-longest average commute to work, with its fellow outer boroughs close behind.

-- According to a POLITICO New York analysis of data released by the United States Census Bureau this week, the average Bronx worker needed an estimated 43.1 minutes to get to their jobs. This was quicker than only Charles County, Maryland, where the daily trek many residents make to Washington brings the total up 44.2 minutes each way. "The good news is that at least Bronx residents are back in the labor force," said former Bronx Assemblymember Michael Benjamin.

-- The third through fifth slots in the country were occupied by Queens (42.8 minutes), Staten Island (42.7 minutes), and Brooklyn (42.2 minutes). However, the margin of error in the census numbers is large enough that it's feasible that any one of these counties occupies the country's top spot in reality. For example, including the Bronx's margin of error indicates the average travel time was between 42 and 44.1 minutes; in Brooklyn, it was between 41.7 and 42.7 minutes.

STATEN ISLAND DISTRICT ATTORNEY RACE -- Republican infighting -- Observer's Jillian Jorgensen: "Whatever the reason for it, it's hard to argue there isn't still bad blood in the party that's getting in the way of the race. When the Observer asked broadly about support from fellow Republicans for [Republican candidate Joan] Illuzzi, [former borough president Guy] Molinari took unprompted aim at State Senator Andrew Lanza.

-- "Mr. Molinari said that he'd heard Mr. Lanza approached Ms. Illuzzi last Friday, while she was speaking to a priest after a September 11 memorial mass at Holy Rosary Catholic Church, and made a comment about how she should not have run a Conservative primary bid. 'He's a lowlife for doing that, and I'll never forgive him, myself,' Mr. Molinari said. Mr. Lanza responded by calling Mr. Molinari-often dubbed the dean of Mr. Lanza's own party on Staten Island-'a sick, depraved liar."

-- "I absolutely swear on a stack of Bibles I didn't say that," Mr. Lanza said in a telephone interview. 'I didn't see Joan. I didn't talk to Joan. I don't know what he's talking about.' He insisted he didn't even agree with the sentiment of what Mr. Molinari said he'd said: 'I think she should have run for the Conservative line.'

-- The Observer reached out to the two other people allegedly present for the exchange: Ms. Illuzzi and the parish priest. The priest didn't return a telephone message. Ms. Illuzzi's campaign manager, Mr. Iacono, said the whole thing was a 'misunderstanding.' 'This was a simple misunderstanding. Senator Lanza has reached out to Joan and she has no reason to doubt his full support,' Mr. Iacono said in a statement."

NEW QUINN JOB -- "Quinn on homelessness: 'We have an enormous problem facing the city,'" by POLITICO New York's Laura Nahmias:

CHANGING CITY -- "Film and TV Industry Is Giving the Bronx More Screen Time," by Times' Winnie Hu: "The Bronx has become the latest frontier for the growing presence of the film and television business in New York City. In 2014, 242 movies and 46 network, cable and Internet shows were filmed in the city, up from 194 movies and 29 shows the year before, according to the Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment."

ARTS INTRIGUE -- "Ronald Perelman's Bitter Departure Shocks Carnegie Hall Trustees," by Times' Michael Cooper: "From the moment Ronald O. Perelman became chairman of Carnegie Hall this year, the classical music world wondered how a billionaire businessman with a reputation for combativeness and a fondness for rock drumming would fit at the helm of the button-down board at the nation's pre-eminent concert hall. But it still stunned the music industry when Mr. Perelman told a group of his fellow trustees on Thursday that he would step down next month, rather than run for re-election. His swift announced departure, after tangling with members of the Midtown Manhattan hall's board and staff, leaves bitterness - and serious charges about the governance at Carnegie - in its wake."

THE TALK OF WALL STREET -- "Goldman Sachs Will Advertise On Snapchat," by BuzzFeed's Matt Zeitlin: "The investment bank will begin advertising at some colleges Friday, with short video ads appearing in Campus Stories on Snapchat. ... The ads are part of Goldman's recruiting efforts and are meant to reach students both at schools where Goldman does on-campus recruiting and where they don't."

REAL ESTATE -- TOWER POWER-"New luxury condo is latest to liven Midtown's NoMad district," by Post's Lois Weiss: "Midtown South's NoMad district at 30th Street and Fifth Avenue is starting to resemble 57th Street-with plans for three 50- to 70-story towers. The latest is a new luxury condominium tower designed by Moshe Safdie that could soon rise mid-block between West 29th and West 30th streets on land just west of, and adjacent to, Marble Collegiate Church.

"The nearly 800-foot-tall, 64-story tower will be developed by Ziel Feldman's HFZ Capital in conjunction with the church, a landmark that was built in 1854. The three church-owned properties-since demolished-were contributed to the joint venture. HFZ filed with the city late Wednesday to begin the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission approval process, sources said."

BUILDING BOOM-"Construction is booming, but DOB reviews take longer," by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: "With construction sites going up along New York City's streets at a breakneck pace, new statistics show that the Department of Buildings is doing more work but taking longer to get it done. The agency issued 104,087 initial building permits in fiscal year 2015 (which ended on June 30), up from 98,302 the prior fiscal year. That continued an upward trend over the past five fiscal years, according to data in the Mayor's Management Report, which City Hall issued on Thursday."

THE HOME TEAMS -- POLITICO New York's Howard Megdal: The Mets lowered their magic number to nine without even playing, as the Nationals lost.

-- The day ahead: the Liberty open the Eastern Conference semifinals at The Garden against the Mystics. The Mets and Yankees battle at Citi Field.

#UpstateAmerica: There are more stray cats and feral felines than the about 50,000 people living in the city of Niagara Falls, according to the Niagara SPCA.
