Almost the very moment Daniel Enriquez was senselessly murdered last Sunday on the Q train, Eric ­Adams, dressed in designer bright-red jacket and navy-blue pants, was pressing the flesh with celebs at an event a few blocks away.

I know Adams has been in the job only five months, but wining and dining with the cool kids is something our new mayor seems to ­enjoy — maybe a bit too much — as his campaign promise to reduce ­violent crime increasingly looks like a bad joke on New Yorkers.

Adams is a frequent customer at some of the city’s glitziest and most pricey restaurants (on a salary of around $250,000). He recently partied in Beverly Hills with Dave Chappelle after attending the Milken Institute Global Conference. And who can forget his Met Gala appearance? Adams was photographed on the red carpet sporting an “End Gun Violence” jacket — as if we all need to be reminded.

Last Sunday, Adams was hanging with Kanye West, Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour and others for a fashion show at the New York Stock Exchange’s heavily fortified headquarters when a maniac with nearly two dozen prior arrests allegedly shot Enri­quez dead in a subway car.

Enriquez worked at Goldman Sachs; he wasn’t a fat-cat banker, but a very middle-class researcher. When he was murdered, he was taking the subway headed to Sunday brunch because he couldn’t afford to Uber it into Manhattan from his home in Brooklyn.

Does all this make Adams a bad mayor? No. Even our mayors need to have some downtime.

But it’s part of a growing narrative about Adams’ nascent mayoralty, particularly among the business elite, that he loves the trappings of the job more than doing it.

Letting down supporters

Buyer’s remorse is starting to roil the relationship between the mayor and the city’s business leaders. They were among his biggest supporters, writing checks left and right because he promised to make the city safe for them and their workers.

And now they’re worried that they’ve been conned because the rot that Bill de Blasio created as mayor and Adams promised to fix — out-of-control crime, homelessness and other quality-of-life issues — continues to place residents at the mercy of criminals and the criminally insane.

The business community has a lot at stake in Adams doing what he said he would do and it goes beyond profits and taxes. Most of the 500,000 people employed in banking, real estate and insurance in NYC aren’t super-rich traders or investment bankers. They are average people. They toil in back offices, or as tellers or researchers, like Enriquez.

They need to take public transportation, and Adams’ campaign promises gave them — and the people who run the companies where they work — hope they could survive their commute.

Eric Adams Met Gala
Mayor Eric Adams seems to be reveling in the spotlight at events like the Met Gala, which he attended with longtime partner Tracey Collins on May 2.

Yet crime is soaring, particularly on subways — felonies are up more than 50% in April compared to a year earlier — and bail reform has kept criminals on the streets. When you’re not being mugged, you realize taxes are still too high.

Despite the lawlessness, Adams said he wants business leaders to drop flexible pandemic work arrangements and bring the rank-and-file back to the office so they spend their money in city bars, restaurants and shops.

Michelle Go
Michelle Go, a senior manager at consulting conglomerate Deloitte, was fatally shoved onto an incoming train at the Times Square subway station.

He even wants people to keep taking the subway, imploring JPMorgan chief Jamie Dimon to ride the train to work because it’s “safe.”

Legitimate subway fear

Huh? Neither Dimon nor anyone I know who can afford an Uber is going near any subway platform out of fear they’ll suffer the same fate as Michelle Go, the Deloitte US employee killed in January when she was randomly shoved in front of an oncoming train.

Following the Enriquez murder, Kathy Wylde of the Partnership for New York City, Gotham’s largest business advocacy group, had this to say about Adams and crime: “Employers are eager to bring people back to the office, but they are not going to issue mandates that expose employees to personal injury or worse.”

In private, business leaders are less circumspect.

“Adams needs to stop traveling, stop bulls–tting everybody and stop going to hot clubs and focus on crime,” a CEO of a prominent NYC company told me. 

Another suggestion: Stop leaking that you have your eyes on the White House while Gotham is burning.

Adams met with Wylde and about 100 business leaders on Thursday to discuss the Enriquez murder and crime, which could be the start of a dialogue that forces the mayor to come to grips with the situation.

They didn’t pull any punches, I am told. They told him the subways aren’t safe and that was even before last weekend’s slaying.

Let’s hope Adams got their message and, by all means, enjoys the city’s nightlife, restaurants and hanging with celebs.

But first live up to your promise to make sure people like Daniel Enriquez or Michelle Go are safe, or there won’t be much of a nightlife to enjoy.

Kourtney Kardashian uses Kopari Coconut Melt to ‘look good naked’

Kourtney Kardashian’s no stranger to showing skin.

Whether the reality star’s modeling lingerie, baring it all in a bikini or packing on PDA with husband Travis Barker, she’s clearly confident about her body — and relies on a selection of tried-and-true products to keep her skin in tip-top shape.

In one of her first-ever Poosh stories, fittingly titled “How to Look Good Naked,” the 43-year-old outlines some of her body care essentials, including La Mer The Body Crème ($300), Dr. Barbara Sturm Anti-Aging Body Cream ($95) and Le Labo’s Pin 12 Candle ($82) — the latter because “lighting is everything.”

But not everything on Kardashian’s list will bust your budget. She also swears by Kopari Organic Coconut Melt, which will set you back just $29 for a full-sized jar or $18 for a mini version.

“In order to achieve glowy skin, it’s important to moisturize everything — everywhere — at least once a day,” the Poosh piece reads. “Don’t forget to care for your hands and feet as well; we recommend focusing on these areas at night.”

Billed as “a deep conditioner for your bod,” the product is comprised of 100% organic, unrefined coconut oil, and Kopari suggests applying it “as soon as you step out of the shower and at the end of the day.”

What’s more, the multitasking product also works well as a hair mask, dry shave oil, bath mix-in and belly balm, per the brand.

Snag a tub for yourself below — and get ready to look fabulous in your birthday suit, too.

Carlos Carrasco’s gem, three homers propel Mets past Marlins




MIAMI — He’s one tough Cookie these days.

Carlos Carrasco isn’t going to win any contests blowing away hitters, but the right-hander’s offspeed pitches and command — and most importantly, his health — have converged this season to give the Mets an invaluable rotation piece.

On Saturday, he gave his team 7 ²/₃ shutout innings in a 4-0 victory over the Marlins at loanDepot park. Carrasco extended his scoreless streak over his past three starts to 18 ²/₃ innings.

The win was No. 100 in Carrasco’s career, making the 35-year-old the eighth Venezuelan-born pitcher to reach the milestone. Carrasco last surrendered a run on July 9 against the Marlins at Citi Field.

The Mets (63-37) won their fifth straight and reached the 100-game mark with the franchise’s most victories since 1986.

Overall, Carrasco allowed four hits and struck out seven with two walks. Seth Lugo replaced Carrasco in the eighth inning after Charles Leblanc had doubled with two outs. But Leblanc was picked off second base by Tomas Nido, ensuring Carrasco’s scoreless streak continued.

Lugo remained in the game to pitch a scoreless ninth inning, allowing Edwin Diaz a day off following a 10-pitch outing Friday in which he struck out the side.

The Mets will try for a three-game sweep of the reeling Marlins on Sunday with Taijuan Walker on the mound.

After scuffling at the plate for seven innings, the Mets gave Carrasco breathing room in the eighth when Francisco Lindor and J.D. Davis each blasted a solo homer to give the Mets a 4-0 lead. Davis’ homer, in a pinch-hitting appearance, came as the Mets are searching on the trade market for a right-handed bat to solidify the DH spot.

The Mets have traded for two lefty bats in the last week-plus to bolster the other half of the DH equation. One of those additions, Tyler Naquin, debuted for the Mets on Saturday in left field and went 0-for-4. Daniel Vogelbach started at DH and drew a walk in four plate appearances.

Carrasco’s gem was the latest strong performance by a Mets starting pitcher. Entering play, the Mets had a 2.45 ERA from the starting rotation in July, which ranked second in the major leagues. Chris Bassitt had a rare flat start for the Mets a night earlier, when he allowed four earned runs over six innings.

Jeff McNeil hit a solo homer in the third against rookie Nick Neidert to give the Mets their first run. The homer was the first since June 14 for McNeil, who entered the day with a .162/.240/.191 slash line in July.

The Mets weren’t finished in the inning: Nido, Brandon Nimmo and Lindor all singled. Lindor’s hit extended the Mets’ lead to 2-0 and gave the shortstop 68 RBIs for the season before he reached 69 with his blast later.

Carrasco was challenged in the first inning, when he allowed a single to Miguel Rojas and walk to Jesus Aguilar before retiring JJ Bleday for the final out. In the fourth, Carrasco surrendered a leadoff single, but he escaped the inning when he got Bleday to ground into a double-play.

Career NYC criminal tries to steal moped from NYPD station




A brazen career criminal with more than 50 arrests on his rap sheet, including rape, was busted for trying to steal a moped from outside a lower Manhattan police station.

Jon Matos was caught red-handed approaching the $1,200 bike outside the 5th Precinct, sources said.

He was allegedly using a set of burglary tools Friday to try to bust the lock of the bike, which was vouchered property, cops and sources said.

Matos, a homeless father of three, was arraigned in Manhattan Criminal Court on charges of attempted grand larceny and possession of burglary tools.

The proceeding was delayed for hours, sources said, after Matos allegedly became angry with a cellmate who used the facilities — but didn’t courtesy flush.

“I was just f–king with it. It’s not my tools,” he allegedly told an NYPD detective, said Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Megan Mers during the court proceeding.

Judge Valentina Morales Saturday agreed to give Matos supervised release in the moped case.

“Thank you, your honor,” Matos told Morales.

But instead of hitting the streets once again, Matos was held on outstanding charges from the 23rd Precinct in an unrelated case, authorities said.

It was his second appearance before a judge in a week: Matos was in court days earlier, charged with grand larceny, petit larceny, and criminal possession of stolen property and was released in yet another incident.

Matos has racked up dozens of busts for burglary, robbery, fare evasion — including the 1999 rape of a 14-year-old girl.

Crime is up in six of the seven major crimes measured by the department contributed to the increase — though the seventh category, murders, dropped a noticeable 31.6% last month in comparison to numbers compiled in June 2021, according to the NYPD’s preliminary statistics.

Grand larceny spiked 41%, robbery rose 36.1% and burglary went up 33.8%.

When addressing the crime spike last month, NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell said the department was arresting the same people for crimes “over and over again.”

Other recent and brazen repeat offenders include veteran shoplifter Isaac “Man of Steal” Rodriguez, who was finally locked up in January after dozens of arrests for stealing to support his drug habit.

Laron Mack, whose catchphrase is “I steal for a living,” has been arrested more than 50 times. Another serial stealer, James Connelly, was busted in December for involvement in 28 separate incidents over three months.

Last month, accused serial shoplifter Lorenzo McLucas, 34, was nabbed for stealing from the cosmetics counter at a Duane Reade on Lexington Avenue in Midtown Manhattan, according to cops and court documents.

McLucas, who was released on his own recognizance, has notched 122 prior arrests.
