INSIDE THE PAPERS
The New York Times
Danny Hakim reports: “Mario M. Cuomo never ran for president, but he seems to be warming to the idea that his son might. One recent Saturday, Mr. Cuomo, the former governor, showed up at his former residence, the Executive Mansion, and broached the unbroachable: before a crowd of about 100 relatives, friends and advisers gathered to mark his 80th birthday, he called his son, Andrew M. Cuomo, ‘the best governor in modern times,’ and, according to several of those present, mused at length that the younger Mr. Cuomo might someday ‘have an opportunity to serve at a higher level, to serve the people of the United States.’ “

In his column, Fred Dicker writes: “Concerned that his plan for a new Tappan Zee Bridge across the Hudson stay on the fast track, Gov. Cuomo is assigning his chief of staff to personally handle the mammoth $5 billion project, The Post has learned.”
Sally Goldenberg reports: “In hope of saving hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars every year, the city is offering ‘payroll cards’ to those of its employees who still stubbornly refuse to get direct deposit, sources said. Some 210 city Housing Authority workers have already signed on to a pilot program offering the Citibank-backed cards, which will be replenished by their salaries every two weeks, officials said.”
Jen Fermino writes: “A public hearing on the inevitable increases — which would average 17 percent — is scheduled for 11 a.m. in the Taxi and Limousine Commission’s headquarters, at 33 Beaver St. It will be the last such hearing before the panel’s board votes Thursday.”
Bennett & Freund report: “Another Manhattan street for drivers could soon bite the dust. The city is looking at turning tiny Vanderbilt Avenue next to Grand Central Terminal into the next car-free ‘pedestrian plaza,’ under a plan being touted by the Department of City Planning and the Department of Transportation.
