INSIDE THE PAPERS
The New York Times
Sharon Otterman reports on the Al Smith dinner in October that will be attended by both President Obama and Mitt Romney.
Matt Flegenheimer writes: “Three City Council members are trying to sell a plan for part of the Brooklyn Bridge. Citing the tight quarters of the pedestrian and bicycle paths on the bridge, the Council members proposed on Tuesday to widen the upper-level platform, a popular artery for tourists and commuters. “
New York Post
Kriss & Campanile report: “Gov. Cuomo weighed in yesterday on the national debate over gun control — vowing to pass new state laws to crack down on illegal gun use and violence following shooting massacres in Wisconsin and Colorado, and amid the daily bloodshed on New York’s streets.”
Sally Goldenberg reports: “In their push for mandated paid sick days, labor leaders are planning to use one of City Council Speaker Christine Quinn’s core constituencies against her: gay-rights activists.”
New York Daily News
A Daily News reporting team writes: “Thirty-one NYPD security camera boxes ring relatively crime-free Central Park, yet only 43 are posted in all of the high-crime Bronx — and residents say their security needs are being ignored to ensure the safety of tourists.”
Durkin & Lovett report: “State Senate Republicans hailed Gov. Cuomo’s push to crack down on the sale of synthetic drugs as a good step forward — but called on the state to go even further. Majority Leader Dean Skelos urged the Assembly to take up a bill that would make the sale and possession of designer drugs — like bath salts and fake pot — a felony.”
Ken Lovett writes: “Former Gov. David Paterson has a new gig as the chairman of a risk management consulting firm. Paterson, who was the subject of multiple probes as governor, will now be in charge of providing advice on investigations and risk management to construction companies.”
Wall Street Journal
Michael Howard Saul reports: “Dan Cantor, executive director of the Working Families Party, and David Feldman, a New York restaurateur, don't agree on the merits of a paid sick-leave bill proposed in the City Council. But they and others in the debate have common ground on one issue: It isn't democratic for Speaker Christine Quinn to prevent a vote on the measure.”
