POLITICO New York Playbook, presented by PhRMA: MTA truce -- CHASING GE -- MMV to Vegas

10/12/2015 06:56 AM EDT

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

TRUCE CALLED ON MTA CAPITAL PLAN - POLITICO New York's Dana Rubinstein: The spat between Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio over mass transit funding is over. For now. On Saturday afternoon, they issued a joint press release announcing an end to the weeks-long series of public recriminations that has transfixed Albany and City Hall insiders and underscored the bitter relationship between two politicians who once called themselves friends. Some argue the agreement released Saturday is more of a win for Cuomo than de Blasio, though de Blasio partisans will dispute that, arguing that they will withhold their MTA aid should the governor violate the terms of the deal. Those terms call for the mayor to make a huge increase in city contributions to the MTA's roughly $30 billion five-year capital plan, from $657 million to $2.5 billion.

The state, meanwhile, continued to maintain it would put $8.3 billion to the plan, though it still won't say where that money is coming from. More clarity on that point was one of de Blasio's key conditions for increasing city aid to the state-run authority. "We need to get greater clarification from the state about how they will invest in the MTA," said the mayor this week. Instead, the agreement refers merely to "state sources." "This does not reveal what the state sources are, which matters," said John Kaehny, executive director of Reinvent Albany.

-- WSJ: "While the governor and mayor were involved in the discussions, the final terms of the deal were hammered out by Emma Wolfe, the mayor's top political aide, and Melissa DeRosa, a senior aide to the governor...The city's contribution includes $1.9 billion of city funds and an additional $600 million from other sources that might involve cashing in on development rights or rezoning." Josh Dawsey and Andrew Tangel:

--"Reaching a Transit Deal, if Not a Compromise in a Feud," by Times' Michael M. Grynbaum: "One is a gearhead whose ideal weekend includes tinkering with a muscle car. The other once refused a police security detail, intent on remaining behind the wheel of his Ford hybrid. But in recent weeks, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo (the amateur mechanic) and Mayor Bill de Blasio (the determined driver) have discovered a newfound zeal for mass transit, dueling over which man would emerge a more vociferous champion of the people's mode of transport. Unlikely as such a fight may have seemed, it was hardly surprising given the very public acrimony between these leaders on subjects ranging from public health to public nudity in Times Square. On Saturday, both men declared victory after reaching a deal to pay for improving the region's transit system. But the compromise may do little to end their feud."

PUERTO RICO, AGAIN: Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul will lead a Cuomo administration expedition to Puerto Rico today, the officials announced this weekend. Hochul, along with health commissioner Howard Zucker and Medicaid director Jason Helgerson, are heading to the island for three days. They are scheduled to discuss the island's health care system and provide technical assistance as they work to build a case that the federal government should invest money into restructuring Puerto Rico's Medicaid program. Zucker and Helgerson were part of a gubernatorial mission to the bankrupt Caribbean island last month.

COST-BENEFIT OF GE PURSUIT - POLITICO New York's Jimmy Vielkind: It's been four months since New York officials began a multi-pronged effort to woo General Electric, an industrial conglomerate that was first headquartered in Schenectady, to move its C-suite back to the Empire State from Connecticut. With company officials promising a decision by year's end, there are concerns in New York about the darker parts of GE's history - including the dumping of PCBs into the Hudson River - and whether it is a good idea to cough up more incentives for a gesture that is as much as a symbolic boost as an economic one.

"Given GE's long track record of corporate tax avoidance, shipping jobs overseas and polluting the environment, one can't help but wonder if it makes sense for New York to roll out the red carpet and provide them with even more tax subsidies to get them to relocate their headquarters here," said Ron Deutsch, executive director of the Fiscal Policy Institute, a labor-backed think tank. "Does a 253 billion dollar company that pays no corporate income tax really need more corporate tax breaks to relocate in New York? This would not be an effective use of state resources when our physical infrastructure is crumbling and we have record child poverty levels in our upstate cities."

SPOTTED: Karen Hinton, the press secretary for Mayor de Blasio, hosted a party Friday night for city reporters inside the Gehry Building on Spruce Street, overlooking City Hall.

CLICKER - "A (very) rough guide to America from an Englishman in New York,"

by Paul Owen in The Guardian:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY: UAlbany professor Rosemary Armao, political operative Bill McGahay, one of NYC's most influential civic leaders, Robert Holden , president of Juniper Park Civic Association (which produces a quarterly magazine), Francis Thomas, JP Morgan's V.P. for strategic communication and a former Thompson 2013 campaign aide, ASPCA's senior director of state legislation, northeast region Bill Ketzer, and Times scribe Michael Barbaro.

FRED DICKER in the Post, "Cuomo and de Blasio's staffers can't stop bickering":

"[T]he war between their aides continues unabated ... Staffers for Cuomo and de Blasio described what one called a 'fatally poisoned atmosphere' between their camps, with much of the anger from the Cuomo side focusing on Karen Hinton, de Blasio's press secretary and wife of Howard Glaser, the governor's now-estranged former operations director. 'They really hate Karen Hinton,' said a source ... 'You can just feel it when you're even around the governor's people.' ... [S]everal senior Cuomo aides [have] openly express[ed] contempt for Hinton, who they describe as 'selfish,' 'disloyal' and 'ungrateful' to the governor, despite his having helped her career for nearly 20 years. Meanwhile, de Blasio's camp has little regard for Cuomo's top aides including Communications Director Melissa DeRosa, who they regard as 'meek' and 'frightened' of the governor ... The ill will was clearly on display last week at a party for the Global Strategy Group, a Democratic consulting firm, when 'DeRosa and de Blasio's people visibly steered clear of one another.'"

WAKE-UP SCOOP: HOSPITAL REBUILD -- Sinai eyes Beth Israel -- POLITICO New York's Dan Goldberg: Executives from Mount Sinai Health System met with members of the de Blasio administration late last month to discuss plans to rebuild Beth Israel Hospital, replacing its aging infrastructure with what could be a smaller facility with fewer in-patient beds. Ken Davis, Mount Sinai president and CEO, said no final decisions have been made and the meeting with

First Deputy Mayor Tony Shorris was "informational." "We are in the midst of trying to figure out how to rebuild the hospital, looking at various options to rebuild it and to integrate it better into our system," Davis said. "We know care is moving more to an ambulatory space and we know there will have to be some diminution of inpatient beds."

Davis' desire to keep the de Blasio administration on board and well informed - even during the planning stage, makes sense, given that Mayor Bill de Blasio rose to prominence, in part, by opposing the closure of city hospitals. A redesigned Beth Israel, even one that is smaller, could conceivably meet the health care needs of the community, especially on the Lower East Side, which is already known as bedpan alley. However, too drastic a change, or one that sparks unrest among union employees could cause the mayor to try and stifle Sinai's ambitions.

LIST DU JOUR - Town & Country, "The T&C 50 Political Families": "CUOMO: Andrew, the current governor of New York (one year into his second term), learned at the knee of his father, the late, legendary, left-leaning Mario. His first marriage, to Kerry Kennedy, daughter of Robert F. (they split in 2005), cemented his liberal bona fides. Brother Chris is a CNN anchor and co-host of ABC's 20/20. REALITY CHECK: Andrew may be his state's most effective governor in decades, but he has been described as a bully (his governing style was once diplomatically referred to as 'muscular'). Though Democrats unsuccessfully pressured Mario to run for president twice, they are less likely to assist his son's White House aspirations."

SHARING IS CARING-"Cab foe Uber to become the city taxi agency's neighbor," by Crain's Daniel Geiger: "Uber, the car-hailing app that has battled with Mayor Bill de Blasio over its unbridled growth, is about to get cozy with the city-at least physically. The $50 billion-plus company is moving its Long Island City office into the same building where the Taxi and Limousine Commission is about to relocate next month."

MARK-VIVERITO HEADS TO VEGAS -- POLITICO New York's Gloria Pazmino: City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito is headed to Las Vegas this week to attend the Democratic presidential debate on Tuesday. According to a spokesman for the speaker, Mark-Viverito was drafted by the Latino Victory Fund to serve as a surrogate before and after the debate for both English and Spanish media. The Latino Victory Fund is the political arm of the Latino Victory Project - a political action committee that raises money and resources for Latino candidates across the country. Mark-Viverito has attended other events hosted by the Latino Victory Fund. In March, she delivered keynote address at Latino Victory Fund's spring event in her native Puerto Rico and was most recently on a panel hosted by the same group at the Netroots Nation conference in Phoenix. During her stay in Vegas the speaker will attend an event with the Culinary Union hosted at a hotel owned by one of her least-liked Republican candidates - Donald Trump.

REPLACING RANGEL -- Bill Perkins: 'Frontrunner' - POLITICO New York's Azi Paybarah: State Sen. Bill Perkins didn't just enter the crowded field to replace retiring Rep. Charles Rangel on Saturday, he declared himself the "front-runner" with a "head start." Perkins, a former City Council member from Harlem, stood at the Schomburg Plaza on Fifth Avenue surrounded by about fifty supporters, nearly all of whom he appeared to know personally. Perkins faces a crowded field to replace Rangel, the longtime dean of the congressional delegation, in a district that has undergone dramatic demographic changes during the congressman's four decades in the House. In a statement before the kick-off, Perkins touted himself as among "the first New York elected officials to stand up for Barack Obama for president."

REAL ESTATE -- THE DAY THE MUSIC DIED-"A Beloved Recording Studio May Be Priced Out of SoHo," by Times' Ben Sisario: Manhattan's red-hot real estate market may claim another victim: the storied "Magic Shop," a recording studio on Crosby Street in SoHo that is at an impasse with its landlord. The studio charges $1,300 a day and the high-end real estate business, combined with changes to the music industry, are making it hard to stay afloat. The studio may soon either move out or close entirely.

IN SERVICE-"The Cellphone Imperative: If I Can't Text, I'm Moving," by Times' Michelle Higgins: New York City's real estate developers are starting to install wireless networks to ensure strong cell phone service in apartments, a challenge as towers are being built ever higher. As it turns out, concrete walls and reinforced steel floors tend to weaken or kill wireless signals, while those "perched in the clouds" higher than cell tower antennae often get interference.

OVER THE RIVER-"Jersey City Proposes Legislation to Legalize Airbnb," by Times' Matt A.V. Chaban: "With Wall Street offices,brownstone-lined streets, star chefs, and even Citi Bike, New Jersey's second largest city often resembles a more affordable, if less glamorous, mini-Manhattan - a sentiment a growing number of tourists now share, as they look here for cheaper accommodations. Yet Jersey City could soon have something New York does not. On Monday, Mayor Steven M. Fulop will introduce legislation to legalize the use of all short-term sleepover web services, like Airbnb and HomeAway. The law is expected to be approved by November."

THE HOME TEAMS -- POLITICO New York's Howard Megdal: From POLITICO New York: Here's how Ruben Tejada, victim of the Chase Utley slide, became a big deal for the New York Mets.

-- MLB suspended Utley two games for the slide, meaning he'd miss Game 3 and 4 of the NLDS, but Utley is appealing, with his appeal expected to be heard prior to gametime Monday night.

-- The National Women's Hockey League played their first games ever on Sunday. The Connecticut Whale beat the New York Riveters, 4-1, and the Boston Pride beat the Buffalo Beauts, 4-1.

-- NYCF was officially eliminated from playoff contention this weekend with a Montreal Impact win.

-- Bills 14, Titans 13: The Bills rallied from ten points down, led by Tyrod Taylor's passing and running, to win a tough game on the road and improve to 3-2.

-- Giants 30, 49ers 27: An utterly implausible catch by Larry Donnell in the end zone in the final seconds allowed the Giants to escape with a home win. Eli Manning threw for 441 yards, which is a lot.

-- The day ahead: The first postseason game at Citi Field ever, first home playoff game for the Mets since Yadier Molina broke their hearts in 2006. Matt Harvey is on the mound. Chase Utley may or may not play. The Mets may or may not throw at someone on the Dodgers. It will be epic.

#UpstateAmerica: Cowboys finally captured the errant cow that had been roaming around suburban Utica.

--"A 'Star Trek' Dream, Spread From Upstate New York"

--"Rail bikes are popular in Adirondacks but may be short-lived," by AP's Mary Esch: "Long-unused and deteriorating railroad tracks in the Adirondacks have been put to use by a new tourist attraction imported from South Korea - pedal-powered rail-riding vehicles called rail bikes. ... Their first summer on the 6-mile stretch between Saranac Lake and Lake Clear brought more than 10,000 customers paying $25 a ride. But the future of Adirondack Rail Explorers is in doubt. The tracks, owned by the state, have long been at the center of a tug-of-war between railroading buffs who favor fixing them up and rail-trail advocates who want the tracks replaced by a multi-use biking, hiking and snowmobiling path."
