There’s an art to giving policy speeches. And, to be sure, it is harder than grabbing your phone and recording videos on Instagram.
Good luck, Mayor Bill de Blasio!
At 11 a.m. today, he gives his annual State of the City speech, on the Upper West Side. Earlier this week, he trotted out some major policy ideas: guaranteed health care access for all and mandatory paid vacations for private-sector workers. A few weeks ago, he announced his support for legal marijuana.
Having already made those announcements, what is this speech really about?
I asked the Times City Hall reporter J. David Goodman.
How many of these speeches has Mayor de Blasio given?
Six counting today.
In the first one I covered, in 2016, the mayor had a lot of forward-looking plans about changing the streetscape.
In 2017, he didn’t have a written speech — just bullet-point notes. He focused on broader issues of income inequality. The speech was meant to be emotional and raise people up. But the reaction in the room was quite negative. People felt it didn’t have any focus. It was vision without a lot of practical substance.
Who is the audience for these speeches?
In 2016, the mayor wanted the audience to be the general public. So he gave his speech in the evening, when more regular people could watch. They did the same thing last year and I guess they haven’t gotten the eyeballs they wanted. This year, they’re doing it at 11 a.m., a more web-friendly time.
What else is new this year?
The mayor’s aides say he is going to use a teleprompter. That may be an indication he’s doing some preparation for a stage bigger than New York City, where teleprompters might be more commonly used.
Has Mr. de Blasio gotten good at these speeches?
The mayor sometimes has a challenge connecting in this environment. He can be good at a rally, where everyone is with him. But he can struggle in a very formal setting, like this speech. Which is why I think you see him trying different approaches.
The mayor is a former political operative. He understands that you have this moment where people are looking at you, and paying attention to you, and you need to seize it when you can.
What’s the goal?
The mayor, very cannily this week, announced major initiatives in advance and has gotten attention for them. They might have gotten buried if he introduced them in the speech.
So the speech itself will be a chance to tie those things together and present his vision for the city.A beating by the police on a Manhattan street
Officials are investigating what took place after video surfaced showing police officers pummeling two men with batons, fists and feet. The man who took the video said the two men physically accosted the officers.
And an earlier video has surfaced, purporting to show one of the men bragging about his record of hitting officers to bait them into beating him, and then suing. “They don’t like me but they can’t touch me,” he says.Best of The Times

End of an era. Start of a new one? Richard Brown announced he would not seek re-election after 27 years as Queens district attorney.
Stop fining signs: The mayor is expected to sign a two-year moratorium on fines for illegal store signs, after a mysterious spike in anonymous 311 calls about the problem.

Not many television shows come back from the dead. Today, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” will.
After five seasons on Fox, the quirky workplace cop comedy will start its sixth season tonight, on NBC.
The show is as diverse as any real police precinct you’d find in Brooklyn. And as NPR’s "Pop Culture Happy Hour" podcast noted, there’s a real challenge to making comedy out of police work.
But as our television critics wrote in 2017, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” was a perfect venue.
“Is idealistic, goofy comedy the best format for exploring systemic racism in policing? And how policing can put black officers in particularly challenging circumstances, both professionally and psychologically? Actually, yeah.”
The Times television critic Margaret Lyons called it one of her favorite shows of 2018. (Is that why Fox canceled it?)
Anyway, if you haven’t watched the show, here’s all you need to know before tonight’s return:
The main character Jake Peralta (goofball detective and grown man-baby, you know the type) got married to Amy Santiago (a goody two-shoes detective learning to walk on the wild side). But the final season on Fox season ended in a cliffhanger over whether their unflappable but lovable boss, Capt. Ray Holt, will become the city’s new police commissioner.
It’s Thursday: Come up with a title for a sitcom about your workplace.Metropolitan Diary: Out of stock
I was walking along Fifth Avenue to my office one day and I stopped to chat with a sidewalk bookseller.
I asked him if he had a copy of “Lonesome Dove.” My daughter was studying for her doctorate in classics at Boston University at the time. There’s a cattle company sign written in Latin mentioned in the book, and I thought it would be clever of me to get her a copy as a gift.
“No,” he snapped. “Don’t have it.”
Months later, I walked by the same bookseller. His inventory appeared to have grown. I asked again whether he had a copy of “Lonesome Dove.”
“No!” he yelled. “I don’t have ‘Lonesome Dove,’ and I’ll never have ‘Lonesome Dove.’”
