Adams looks back on ‘extraordinarily difficult year for Brooklynites’


Mayor-elect Eric Adams said on Christmas Day that this has been “an extraordinarily difficult year for Brooklynites and New Yorkers.”

“While Christmas can be a trying time for so many facing tremendous challenges such as bereavement, depression, or food and housing insecurity, it also finds a way to remind us of life’s plentiful blessings, a great deal of which I witness on a day-to-day basis as I visit our various communities throughout the borough,” said Adams, the incumbent Brooklyn Borough President, who will become Mayor of New York City on Jan. 1, in his Christmas Day message.
