Capalino Bats for Moynihan

The Related Companies and Vornado Realty Trust hired Jim Capalino to lobby on its behalf for Moynihan Station back in June. Though he is also registered to lobby the Governor’s office and state legislature, insiders say he is more likely their choice to influence City Hall (maybe to relent on the Garden’s tax break?). Capalino, who didn’t return messages, worked for Ed Koch, and most of his other accounts (High Line, the cultural affairs budget, Hudson Yards rezoning) appear to have focused on city issues.
