POLITICO New York Playbook, presented by Nuclear Matters: DE BLASIO calls for calm -- CUOMO pressured on housing -- SILVER stays off stand

11/19/2015 07:25 AM EDT

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

KEEPING THE CALM -- De Blasio and Bratton urge caution after ISIS video depicts NYC scenes -- POLITICO New York's Azi Paybarah: In response to a newly released video from ISIS depicting various scenes throughout New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio and NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton briefly spoke to reporters in Times Square just after 11 p.m. Wednesday night to say there are no credible terrorist threats against the city. The video's release comes days after the deadly attacks in Paris and Beirut, for which ISIS has claimed credit.

"The people of New York City will not be intimidated," said de Blasio. "I want to encourage all New Yorkers to continue to go about their business normally." The mayor assured the public that "extraordinary efforts are being made every single day" to keep New York safe. Bratton said the video was a compilation of previously released videos. With the upcoming holiday season, Bratton said "people can feel comfortable coming into this city."

"Be aware but do not be afraid," he said. "We will not be intimidated and we will not be in fear."

--"ISIS threatens NYC in new propaganda video," by Post's Shawn Cohen, Isabel Vincent and Tina Moore: "A new ISIS propaganda video makes threats against the New York City - and shows Manhattan streetscapes that include Times Square and Herald Square ... The slick production includes storefront shots of TGI Fridays in Times Square and the Gap in Herald Square - along with footage of yellow taxi cabs driving past. The images of New York City are spliced between disturbing clips of suicide bombers preparing for attacks. A fighter also holds a grenade, pulling the trigger as the camera cuts to black."

--"De Blasio, Drawing New Battle Line, Takes Aim at Christie on Refugees," by Times' Michael M. Grynbaum: "Embroiled in a long-term, internecine conflict with Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo of New York, Mr. de Blasio has embraced a second high-level feud, exchanging harsh words with Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey over the refugee crisis in Syria. Mr. Christie's fierce objections to the United States policy on acceptance of refugee children have prompted scorn among liberals, and on Wednesday, Mr. de Blasio was eager to join the chorus. 'I'd like to know what Governor Christie says about this,' the mayor declared at a news conference in Manhattan, brandishing a copy of a widely circulated color photograph of a 3-year-old Syrian child who was found drowned on a beach in Turkey. 'Is this what he wants to see happen to people?' the mayor said, his voice rising, as a few supporters cheered. 'Is this what he wants to see happen to children? We don't accept that here in New York City.'"

DE BLASIO ASKS CUOMO TO STEP UP ON HOUSING- POLITICO New York's Laura Nahmias, Brendan Cheney and Dana Rubinstein: Mayor Bill de Blasio said Wednesday he could no longer wait for the state of New York to hash out a deal to build new housing for the homeless and mentally ill. After months of negotiations between the de Blasio administration and Gov. Andrew Cuomo turned sour, de Blasio broke with more than two decades of precedent on supportive housing. The move made for a rare moment during de Blasio's first-term where the mayor outmaneuvered the governor, and publicly put the onus on Cuomo to follow his lead. Since 1990, every decade or so, the state governor and city mayor have negotiated long-term agreements to create thousands of units of housing for the homeless and mentally ill, through a program called "New York-New York."No longer.

-- "Pressure Shifts to Cuomo as De Blasio Announces Supportive Housing Agreement." Gotham Gazette:

LICH DITCH -- Lander declares opposition to Long Island College Hospital rezoning proposal, which de Blasio supports -- POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: The saga of the former Long Island College Hospital site took another turn Wednesday night, when the city councilman representing the area declared he would not support a plan to rezone the land for massive redevelopment. During a community meeting of the Cobble Hill Association in Brooklyn, Councilman Brad Lander announced his formal position on the rezoning proposed by developer Fortis Property Group, which owns the site.

Lander's position puts him at odds with the de Blasio administration, which has indicated support for the plan . Fortis presented Lander and the Cobble Hill community with two options: a redevelopment that includes a 37-story luxury condo tower, some below-market-rate apartments, expanded parkland, a public elementary school and a retail corridor. The other choice, which needs no approvals and can be built 'as of right,' includes a 35-story condo building and a 260,000 square-foot facility likely to be used as a dorm.

"Lander and his constituents who spoke at the meeting panned both proposals but were simply not willing to give Fortis permission to rezone the land. While it would come with perks for the community, it would also enable additional residential development."

SKELOS THREATENED TO CHALLENGE CUOMO - POLITICO New York's Josefa Velasquez: Following Gov. Andrew Cuomo's decision to ban fracking in New York last year, Dean Skelos, then the majority leader of the state Senate, assailed the governor and said he would run against him, according to a wiretapped phone call between the senator and his son played for the jury during their corruption trial on Wednesday. "Ahhh! This day sucks," Adam Skelos told his father in a phone call dated Dec. 17, 2014, the same day the Cuomo administration concluded that fracking posed "significant health risks." "It does. Well, we're going to totally focus on that other thing now. OK?" the elder Skelos replied, without indicating that the "other thing" was. "He's such a pussy," Adam Skelos said of the governor, accusing Cuomo of flip-flopping on fracking. "I'm going to run against him," Dean Skelos said as his son cheered him on. "I'm going to do it. I'm going to do it. This is stupid. Everything is by polls... No more, you know, buddy-buddy and all that stuff. He's full of shit." Cuomo won re-election to a second term in November, 2014, and would be eligible to run again in 2018.

-- Silver won't take the stand- POLITICO New York's Colby Hamilton: The government wrapped up nearly three weeks of testimony and evidence in its corruption case against former Assembly speaker Sheldon Silver on Wednesday, resting its case after calling two witnesses who testified in support of the money-laundering charges against the assemblyman.With the government's case over, the trial is now turned over to Silver's defense team, which told the court Wednesday that it was not planning on calling any witnesses. That includes Silver, who told the court as much after the government rested. "I do not wish to testify," Silver said, speaking for the first time since the trial opened earlier this month.

HOLDING UP THE MTA PLAN - POLITICO New York's Jimmy Vielkind: With a concrete plan for investments in the state's roads and bridges still in the works, an infrastructure advocacy group is asking Republicans in the State Senate to hold the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's capital plan hostage until state leaders agree to spend a comparable amount in Upstate areas. Mike Elmendorf, executive director of the Associated General Contractors and a leader of the Rebuild New York Now coalition, said after a press conference this week that Senate Republicans should veto the agreed-upon $8.3 billion plan for track and system maintenance and upgrades until the state's Department of Transportation puts forward a plan for upstate assets. "Historically, if there's not parity, the Senate has vetoed it," Elmendorf told POLITICO. "It doesn't mean you're not going to have an MTA plan, but it's drawing lines and stating priorities."

TRUMP names KELLY - Yahoo's Hunter Walker : "Trump told Yahoo the architect of that program, former NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly, is someone he might think about for a position in a Trump presidential administration. 'Ray's a great guy,' Trump said. 'Ray did a fab job as commissioner and, sure, Ray would be somebody I'd certainly consider.'"

IMMELT ON GE'S 'ECOSYSTEM' - Times Union's Larry Rulison: "[GE CEO Jeff] Immelt was receiving an award from the Business Council of Fairfield County when he made the remarks about GE's decision. He waited until the end of his acceptance speech to address the issue [of moving the conglomerate's headquarters]. 'I know what's on everyone's mind,' Immelt said, according to Stamford Advocate business reporter Alexander Soule . 'We're a company that ... doesn't look for special deals. But we need an ecosystem that's forward-looking, that's future-looking, that's willing to fight hard to be competitive and enduring for the future. We don't want that just for GE - we want that for everybody that's in this room ... That's why we're looking not just here but other places for where the eventual headquarters of the company will be. We will always have a big presence in Connecticut, but we think the power of an ecosystem is important.'"

COUNCIL TABLES VOTE ON DE BLASIO TAX COMMISSION NOMINEE - POLITICO New York's Gloria Pazmino: The City Council tabled a vote Wednesday on the nomination of Janet Alvarez to the city's Tax Commission after a tense hearing during which she declined to answer questions about a lawsuit that was filed against her a decade ago. Mayor Bill de Blasio nominated Alvarez to the commission last week, setting her up to be the first Latina to serve in that agency.

Alvarez, who has been a critic of the administration's Latino outreach, has served as co-chair of the Campaign for Fair Latino Representation, often read from notes in answering Council members' questions, appeared to have little knowledge about the workings of the notoriously complicated city property tax code, the commission or what she would do to make it better.

POLL SHOWS MORE THAN HALF OF NEW YORKERS ARE BARELY MAKING IT - Times' Alexander Burns and Giovanni Russonello: "Half of New York City residents say they are struggling economically, making ends meet just barely, if at all, and most feel sharp uncertainty about the future of the city's next generation, a new poll shows.

The poll, conducted by The New York Times and Siena College, shows great disparities in quality of life among the city's five boroughs. The stresses weighing on New Yorkers vary widely, from the Bronx, where residents feel acute concern about access to jobs and educational opportunity, to Staten Island, where one in five report recently experiencing vandalism or theft. But an atmosphere of economic anxiety pervades all areas of the city: 51 percent of New Yorkers said they were either just getting by or finding it difficult to do so."

BILL DE BLASIO AND RAS BARAKA's op-ed in the Daily News: "Like many other low-wage workers, contracted airport workers want an increase to $15 an hour - a minimum-wage level for which we have long pushed, and that Gov. Cuomo recently announced his support for statewide in New York. The workers also want health benefits, proper training and the right to unionize. Taken together, these enhancements would significantly improve their lives - and improve service at the airports by reducing turnover and raising the quality of service.

-- "As the Port Authority moves forward plans to bolster the airports and local infrastructure - such as the much-needed modernization of LaGuardia - we call on its director, commissioners and leadership on both sides of the river not to leave behind the thousands of men and women of our airports. We cannot bring our airports into the 21st century while those inside are making poverty wages. New terminals or bridges alone do nothing to alleviate poverty - that will only come when those who work inside see improved wages, benefits and working conditions."

EAT BEAT -- "Wahlburgers bringing famous eats to New York City," by Post's Lois Weiss: "Reality bites into burger realty, as celeb Mark Wahlberg and brothers are coming to Midtown. Wahlburgers, the Wahlbergs' fast-growing Massachusetts-based burger chain, is coming to 725 Eighth Ave. between West 45th and 46th streets near Times Square. Founded by Mark, his actor brother Donnie and executive chef Paul, the restaurant, bar and store will take up all five levels of the property."

OUT AND ABOUT -- Former health commish Tom Farley discussed his new book "Saving Gotham: A Billionaire Mayor, Activist Doctors, and the Fight for Eight Million Lives" with Dr. Jonathan LaPook, chief medical correspondent for "CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley" last night at the Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute at Hunter College.

HILLARYWATCH -- "Tech moguls shun Clinton super PAC: Priorities USA Action is simply not a priority for the Bay Area's wealthy few who Democrats believe are necessary to fund a winning presidential effort," by Politico's Gabe Debenedetti in SF: "The challenges facing Priorities USA Action ... are manifold: Some of these liberal Democratic tech moguls are more interested in their own self-funded political groups; others cite ideologically fueled distaste for super PACs; and more still point to residual bad blood after a messy Silicon Valley congressional race in 2014."

REAL ESTATE -- WAGE WARS-"Construction trades targeted in new anti-labor campaign," by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: "A multi-media campaign targeting the major construction trades union in New York City is kicking off on Thursday with three full-page newspaper advertisements, radio spots and a Times Square billboard accusing the labor group of paying minority workers lower wages. The Center for Union Facts, a conservative organization that often publicly attacks unions, is behind the campaign, which also involves handing out black-and-white cookies in front of City Hall on Thursday."

BIG DEALS-"Wells Fargo Buying Office Condo at 30 Hudson Yards," by Commercial Observer's Danielle Balbi: "Wells Fargo is buying commercial condominium space at the 2.6-million-square-foot 30 Hudson Yards office tower being developed by Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group, sources familiar with the deal confirmed. The San Francisco-based banking giant will take roughly half a million square feet divided between two sections of the 80-story tower, one person with knowledge of the deal told Commercial Observer. The purchase price and exact floors were not immediately disclosed."

-"Teachers' retirement fund continues Meatpacking District takeover," by Post's Lois Weiss: "TIAA-CREF is taking over more of the Meatpacking District with the purchase of yet a third, fully leased and newly reconstructed warehouse. The stunning 430 W. 15th St. site is now in contract to the teachers' retirement fund for $140 million or $1,400 a square foot, sources say."

THE HOME TEAMS -- POLITICO New York's Howard Megdal: Hornets 116, Nets 111: Poor fourth-quarter execution and a Hornets team that placed seven scorers in double figures proved too much for the Nets on a night Thaddeus Young scored 27.

-- The day ahead: St. John's hosts Rutgers in men's basketball. The Rangers are in Tampa. The Sabres are in St. Louis.
