New Yorkers chose Democrat Eric Adams, a former New York Police Department captain, to become the city’s second Black Mayor in a landslide election that offered little surprise given that Republicans are outnumbered by a margin of about 7 to 1.
Adams, who is currently the Brooklyn borough president and a former state senator, will take the reins from Bill de Blasio, whose second term was mired in the effects of the pandemic, historic job losses, skyrocketing housing prices and rental rates, extreme income inequality, and a broke transportation system.
Throughout the race, the 61-year-old branded himself as the blue-collar mayor, gaining the approval of home owning voters across the five boroughs.
He made combating gun violence and improving public safety a main focus of his campaign, while also calling for cuts to the NYPD’s budget and the shifting of some jobs to civilians that have been done by officers, which he says could save the city up to $500 million a year.
Following a worrisome surge in shootings not seen since the 1990s, Adams says he’d like to reestablish a controversial plainclothes anti-crime unit that was dismantled by de Blasio just last year. He would also increase patrols at train and bus stations.
The final weeks of the race between Adams and GOP candidate Curtis Sliwa were dominated by personal attacks and public name-calling. Adams repeatedly slammed Sliwa as a “racist” and called him a Mini-Me of Donald Trump. Sliwa, on the other hand, has called the 110th mayor-to-be an elitist, as well as Bill de Blasio 2.0.
Close to one thousand people were in attendance at Brooklyn Marriott for Eric Adams Victory party and speech, we are also happy to say were in attendance covering this historic victory in our World Liberty TV, Political channels and blogs.
We have covered Eric Adams as an Assembly member, Brooklyn Borough president for the past 11 years and we look forward to covering him and his work for New York city for many more years in our World Liberty TV, Again Congratulations to Eric Adams and wishing him all the best.
New York’s 48th Annual Village Halloween Parade took place on October 31, 2021. Jason Feldman and his wife Missy ,They LOVE Halloween!
“When I heard on the news that the annual Village Halloween Parade was going to be canceled for lack of funds, I was devastated,” Feldman said. “I immediately felt called to save the parade, and to make a difference for our city. Honestly, as a native New Yorker I love this parade so much I don’t really think I had a choice.
I know it’s not literally the shot in the arm most people are looking for, but I would suggest it’s the best medicine for our city.” Thank you Mr Feldman for your contribution to keep the parade going, totally a great man who deeply cares about New York and of course the Halloween Parade.
This year’s Parade is dedicated to the Children of NYC who could not celebrate Halloween last year. This year we are inviting them to design the giant Puppets that lead the Parade! New York City’s Halloween Parade was resurrected on Sunday night.
Tens of thousands of revelers returned to Manhattan to take part in the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade that was nixed last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic — and many attendees donned coronavirus-themed costumes as they marched up Sixth Avenue.
The 48th year of the parade also featured floats, dancing and music from 53 bands.
Comedian Randy Rainbow served as the 2021 grand marshal after gaining popularity for his parody song “Mr. Biden (Bring My Vaccine)” on YouTube last March.
The event’s artistic and producing director Jeanne Fleming said Sunday night was “the largest parade” she’s ever seen — estimating 60,000 participants and half a million spectators.
“This is more than I can ever imagine,” Fleming said. “This is the heart and soul of New York City. This is people reaching into their hearts and doing something for each other,” she added.
In addition to the COVID-themed costumes, revelers dressed in typical Halloween get-ups, including zombies, Grim Reapers, witches, Jokers and clowns.
Some attendees traveled from as far as the west coast to witness the celebration.
It was World Liberty TV Teams 15th Annual Appearance covering the Parade and we look forward to covering many more and showcasing it to many of our readers and subscribers. See more in our World Liberty TV, Cos Play Channels and blogs by clicking here.
