POLITICO New York Playbook, presented by PhRMA: NYPD officer shot in East Harlem -- DE BLASIO forum finds few takers -- UBER begins Albany push

10/21/2015 07:39 AM EDT

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

OFFICER KILLED IN THE LINE OF DUTY -- News' Kerry Burke, Rocco Parascandola, Joseph Stepasky, and Denis Slattery: "An NYPD housing officer was killed Tuesday night, shot in the head by a trigger-happy perp during a chase and gunfight on a pedestrian overpass above the FDR Drive in East Harlem, police said.

"Officer Randolph Holder, 33, was shot in the forehead by the callous gunman, who had stolen a bike and was being pursued by cops along the promenade hugging the East River around 8:30 p.m., Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said. The brave officer died at 10:22 p.m. at Harlem Hospital. A suspect, shot in the legs, was arrested."

-- Mayor Bill de Blasio: "We are humbled by Officer Randolph Holder's example, an example of service and courage and sacrifice ... Our hearts are heavy. We offer our thoughts and our prayers to his family." A.P.:

-- Post: "Holder is the fourth NYPD cop killed in the line of duty in the past 10 months - since the tragic Christmastime double murder of Detectives Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu."

DE BLASIO PRESIDENTIAL FORUM'S STILL-HAZY PROSPECTS - POLITICO New York's Dana Rubinstein and Laura Nahmias: Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush has no interest whatsoever in attending Mayor Bill de Blasio's presidential forum on income inequality.

"No he's not going to a Bill de Blasio event," said Bush spokesman Tim Miller. Lincoln Chafee's and Carly Fiorina's campaigns aren't sure they got the invitation. "We haven't received an invitation," campaign spokeswoman Anna Epstein said in an email to POLITICO New York. "Again, if they'd like to send us one they are more than welcome to send it to my email. Most of us on the team have our email addresses available to the public on our twitter bios, so it should have been very easy for them to find!"

-- The mayor's spokeswoman Karen Hinton told POLITICO New York that attending the Iowa presidential forum is not a prerequisite for de Blasio to consider endorsing a candidate. Instead, the endorsement will be "based on policy positions that are most beneficial to NYC," Hinton said in an email.

UBER'S NEW PUSH - POLITICO New York's Jimmy Vielkind: Uber officials began a push today to get the state to allow them to operate legally throughout New York State, arguing that with simple legislation, New York could create 13,000 jobs and generate $80 million in fares in upstate areas where the service is currently unavailable. A more controversial question concerns the potential effect of state legislation on Uber in New York City, where it's largely regulated as a for-hire car company. There, Uber has done battle with taxi medallion owners (and drivers), as well as politicians like Mayor Bill de Blasio, who earlier this year backed legislation that would have temporarily capped Uber's growth. De Blasio eventually yielded, amid an expensive and well-organized lobbying blitz. Uber's appeal to Albany could turn out to be an effective end-run around the city, given the enmity between de Blasio and Cuomo, who at the height of the de Blasio-Uber feud defended the start-up against potentially stifling city regulation and said he'd prefer to see a statewide regulatory scheme.

"I don't know. There are so many - that's one detail among what I imagine will be a document full of details so I can't say what I will or won't support," said Uber's manager in New York, Josh Mohrer. "What I can say is that I support us coming to this part of the state and creating jobs and providing a transportation service that actually works and that's something that's been successful across the country. That's it! I know it's like super-interesting on whether we're trying to do this or that to New York City, but that's not what we're here to talk about."

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "They're an embarrassment to themselves in terms of their professional skills, or lack of them, in once again letting a prisoner escape in this city, and they will be dealt with very appropriately for that incompetence," - Bill Bratton on escaped suspect

LIST - "17 New City Restaurants For You to Try Right Now" -

THE NEW OWNER OF THE VILLAGE VOICE, is searching for a place to live in New York City, and looked at an apartment in the famed River House. New Yorker's Lizzie Widdicombe:

REJOICE -- "Jockeys Return to '21' Club in Manhattan After a Summer Break," by Times' Corey Kilgannon: "Perhaps the most recognizable aspect of the '21' Club on West 52nd Street in Manhattan is the corps of colorful iron lawn jockeys standing sentry outside the restaurant. But for the past three months, the three dozen statues have been conspicuously absent, away on 'a restorative vacation,' as a banner out front puts it. In mid-July, for the first time in the establishment's 85-year history, the little metal men were removed for a full refurbishment. They have spent the past few weeks in an artist's studio in New Jersey, where they were ground, sanded, painted and buffed into shape. ... But on Monday, a sense of normalcy began returning. A moving van arrived, and workers began unloading the jockeys wrapped in packing blankets."

ABOUT LAST NIGHT - Cuomo and the Nassau County Democrats - Newsday's Robert Brodsky: "With Election Day two weeks away, Cuomo came to Carle Place Tuesday night to support Nassau County Democrats but stopped short of endorsing the party's top of the ticket candidate, Acting District Attorney Madeline Singas. In a speech to more than 800 at the Nassau County Democratic Committee's fall dinner, Cuomo addressed a range of topics, from gun control to increasing the state's minimum wage to presidential politics. Cuomo made only passing mention of the slate of Democratic candidates on the ballot, but noted that Singas has been 'a great career prosecutor' who has done 'an extraordinary job in a difficult position.' State officials said Cuomo has a long-standing policy of not endorsing candidates for law enforcement positions, including district attorney."

-- On his way back from Long Island, the governor stopped by Tidal X 1020, a charity concert in Brooklyn featuring Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Nick Jonas and Usher. A Cuomo aide said Jay Z, the rapper who organized the show, personally invited Cuomo to stop by; the two struck up a relationship during negotiations over creating a special prosecutor for cases of police violence. Proceeds from Tuesday's event will benefit charities that help community-police relations, the aide said.

FIRST LOOK: The Oneida Indian Nation is ratcheting up its efforts to prevent the Lago Resort and Casino from opening, launching a statewide ad campaign this morning that urges the state to reject Lago's application for a gaming license. The ads argue that Lago, located along the Thruway between Rochester and Syracuse in the town of Tyre, will suck business away from the Turning Stone Casino between Syracuse and Utica. Lago was one of three casinos recommended for a license by a state siting board last year; it is 10 miles from the edge of an exclusivity zone that Gov. Andrew Cuomo negotiated with the Oneida Nation, and it is on the northern end of the Southern Tier region where the siting board evaluated applications.

-- Watch the ad:

ON THE MOVE: Bolton St. John has hired Jim Moore to work in its Buffalo office. Moore, a Buffalo native, has spent the last five years working in U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer's offices upstate; he served recently as deputy director for the Southern Tier.

NEW HIRE: Davidoff Hutcher & Citron has hired Jennifer Manley to their Government Relations practice. Prior to joining DHC, Manley served as Vice President of Government and Community Affairs at the Queens Library, and as the Queens Director for Mayor Bloomberg's Community Affairs Unit.

ABOUT TONIGHT: Senators Chuck Schumer, Kirsten Gillibrand and other lawmakers will join the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce to co-host Brooklyn Night in Washington DC. The event, which goes from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Russell Senate Office Building, will include Brooklyn-based food and beverages: Brooklyn Brewery, Red Hook Winery, Junior's Cheesecake, and more.

MEETING DAY -- de Blasio and Bloomberg will plant city's millionth tree -- AP's Jonathan Lemire: Bill de Blasio says his administration will continue "to build upon" the environmental record of his predecessor. De Blasio and ex-Mayor Michael Bloomberg will make a rare public appearance together [today] in the Bronx. The two men will plant the capstone tree in the One Million Trees program launched by Bloomberg when he was in office. De Blasio was elected in 2013 after waging a campaign that was critical of many Bloomberg policies. De Blasio's staff invited Bloomberg to attend the event, which was first reported by The Associated Press.

-- "Bronx Planting Caps Off a Drive to Add a Million Trees," by Times' Lisa W. Foderaro: "In a park named for the poet who wrote the poem 'Trees,' New York is planting its one millionth tree on Wednesday, capping a campaign that reflected the city's determination to be in the vanguard of fighting climate change. The tree, a lacebark elm that is eight years old, 25 feet tall and 6,500 pounds, was installed on Tuesday at Joyce Kilmer Park in the South Bronx."

COUNT YOUR FRIENDS -- New York's congressional Democrats unite behind Clinton -- POLITICO New York's Brendan Cheney: Rep. Paul Tonko will endorse Clinton this week, according to a spokesman for the congressman. With Tonko's endorsement, Clinton has secured support from all 18 Democrats who represent New York in the House and both of the state's U.S. senators.

Clinton worked with most of the delegation when she was the junior senator from New York from 2001 to 2009. One of the few exceptions, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries - an early supporter of President Barack Obama in 2008 - announced his endorsement at a press conference last week with Reps. Greg Meeks and Yvette Clarke at City Hall. Most of New York's elected leadership has rallied behind Clinton and are actively campaigning for her. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito attended the debate in Las Vegas last week as surrogates for Clinton, and Sen. Chuck Schumer and Gov. Andrew Cuomo have been outspoken supporters.

The one conspicuous exception is Mayor Bill de Blasio, who managed Clinton's 2000 Senate campaign, but has said he wants to hear more about her plans before offering his endorsement. De Blasio has invited presidential candidates to a forum in Iowa in December that will be focused on income inequality.

PROGRESSIVE AGENDA -- council releases legislative wish list -- POLITICO New York's Gloria Pazmino: After cementing a number of legislative victories, securing the election of their chosen candidate for speaker and changing the rules of the City Council, members of the Progressive Caucus released their legislative agenda on Monday that outlines priorities for the coming months.

The 19-member caucus gathered at the Manhattan headquarters of 32BJ SEIU to unveil the "advancement agenda," hold panel discussions on each item and talk about how to write their proposals into law. The caucus' agenda, its members said, includes everything from affordable housing to environmental justice, as well as tenant protections and preservation.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Renewable New York program director Katherine Nadeau; Debra-Ellen Glickstein, executive director of the NYC Office of Financial Empowerment; Van Holmes, an associate of former state senator Shirley Huntley of Queens; and Michael Casertano, an associate at Jones Day and a legislative representative for the mayor's office under Bloomberg.

HILLARYWATCH -- "Hillary Clinton's Endorsement List Erroneously Includes Mayor Ivy Taylor of San Antonio," by Times' Amy Chozick: "On Monday, the campaign released a list of 'Hillary's Texas Leadership Council' that included endorsements in the Lone Star State. That list had included Mrs. Taylor, one of the most prominent African-American women to lead a major American city. But Mrs. Taylor promptly said that she had not endorsed Mrs. Clinton for president and did not plan on doing so."

--"Delaware, Texas mayors: Not behind Clinton, as campaign says" - AP/Washington: "The mayor of Wilmington, Delaware, denied on Tuesday that he's endorsing Hillary Rodham Clinton for president, as her campaign has claimed. 'Incorrect info about an endorsement,' Mayor Dennis Williams tweeted Tuesday night. 'I've known @VP Biden since I was 12 yrs old, if he chooses to run, he will receive my support!'"

REAL ESTATE -- BLACKSTONE'S THINKING- "Gains for New York, and a Real Estate Behemoth, in the Stuyvesant Town Sale," by the Times' Charles Bagli: "So could this company be a tenant savior? Maybe. But make no mistake: Blackstone and its partner, Ivanhoé Cambridge (the real estate arm of the Canadian pension fund manager Caisse de dépôt et Placement du Québec), are out to make money. 'They're not a charity,' said Dave Bragg, a real estate analyst at Green Street Advisors. 'They're one of the savviest dealmakers in all of real estate. It's interesting to see that they think they've got a great deal, while the city is celebrating this as a great deal for affordable housing.'"

SHOP SPLINTERS-"I am starting my own firm," Vishaan Chakrabarti, formerly a partner at SHoP Architects, told POLITICO New York. "Well, look, SHoP is great and it's all very amicable, it truly is," he said. "And they're great people. I just, I'm at this juncture where if I want to start my own firm and have my own voice and have a firm that's very focused on architecture and urbanism and the city, then this my moment. This is my opportunity. I turn 50 soon. That's actually still a relatively young age for an architect. But I'm not going to do this 10 years from now." ... On Wednesday morning, Chakrabarti's publicists at BerlinRosen will put out a press release about his new endeavor, called the Partnership for Architecture and Urbanism. "The firm will be driven by the belief that the collisions of joy, exuberance, exasperation and surprise we experience as dwellers of the city are enabled by a well-designed set of networks, be they social networks, street networks, public space networks, or the extensive network of space, materials and systems that constitute architecture," it reads.

-"Are SHoP Architects and Vishaan Chakrabarti Parting Ways?," by Curbed's Amy Plitt: "Just three years after he joined SHoP Architectsas a partner, Vishaan Chakrabarti (who recently sold his Flatiron loft for $5 million) may be leaving the firm, according to rumors. Several tipsters have reached out saying that the principal, who joined SHoP with an emphasis on large-scale projects, is out at the company. SHoP's website has seemingly been updated to reflect Chakrabarti's departure: His headshot no longer appears with those of the firm's other principals."

THE NEW PARADIGM- "Pier 40 to Be Saved Under Plan to Build 1,500 Apartments in West Village," by the Times' Marc Santora: "After years of debate, disagreement and inaction, New York City officials and developers plan to announce on Wednesday a proposal to save Pier 40, the former cargo terminal in Manhattan that is in danger of collapsing into the Hudson River, by selling off air rights to a developer that plans to build on the other side of the West Side Highway. The plan ... envisions raising more than $100 million by selling the air rights to allow the development of five buildings between Clarkson and Charlton Streets, on the eastern flank of the highway, that would include hundreds of apartments for low- and middle-income households. The money raised would be used to repair the 15-acre pier, which is currently known to most New Yorkers for its public parking lot and crowded but aging athletic fields."

THE HOME TEAMS -- POLITICO New York's Howard Megdal: Mets 5, Cubs 2: No, I swear, Daniel Murphy homered again. That is a thing that happened. Jacob deGrom pitched well for seven innings, and Jeurys Familia closed the game out. Familia's now faced 31 hitters in the postseason, and retired 28. The Mets lead the best-of-seven series, 3-0, and are one win from the World Series.

-- The day ahead: Steven Matz tries to pitch the Mets to their first National League pennant in 15 years, and their most improbable one in 46 years.
