‘No one will outwork me’: Mayor Adams’ first day includes eventful subway ride to work and first Cabinet meeting

Adams was sworn in as the 110th mayor of New York City just after midnight on Jan. 1, in Times Square minutes after the iconic ball dropped and christened the New Year. However, the new chief executive of the five boroughs didn’t rest easy after his late night.
