The polls finally closed in the 2021 citywide elections after early and Election Day voters cast their ballots on who will run New York City for the next four years.
As expected, numerous media outlets have called the mayoral race for the Democratic nominee, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, who easily bested his Republic rival, Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa. Adams is projected to replace the term-limited Bill de Blasio on Jan. 1 as New York City’s 110th mayor.
Democrats were also big winners in citywide contests. Public Advocate Jumaane Williams cruised to re-election, while Brooklyn City Council Member Brad Lander won the right to succeed the term-limited Scott Stringer as City Comptroller.
