Cuomo tries role of peacemaker

 ALBANY –- All is OK in the aftermath of the dust-up created Wednesday by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s smack at Buffalo, according to Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo.

"I believe Mayor Bloomberg apologized for it. I’m sure Mayor Brown will accept it," Cuomo said today.

"We’re one state at the end of the day. We work together, and both mayors will work together," the governor added.

In a forum Wednesday, Bloomberg said the problems facing his city are "problems of success." He then launched into Buffalo.

"There's an awful lot of free space in Buffalo, N.Y., if you want to go there. I don't think you do," he said.

"Buffalo would love to have our problems, and one of the challenges in this country is how we help a city like Buffalo," Bloomberg said.
