Paperboy Prince wants to be youngest mayor in New York City history

Brooklyn rapper Paperboy Prince isn’t only the youngest candidate in the crowded mayoral race, but also the least conventional.

A non-binary 28-year-old, Prince fashions themselves a new face for the city. (Prince uses the pronouns they/them or god/goddess.) If Prince gets the required number of signatures to put them on the ballot for the June Democratic primary, the young artist will be in the running to become the youngest mayor in the city’s history, beating out 34-year-old John Purroy Mitchel, who took office in 1913.
