Year In Review | Examining the ups and downs of Mayor Adams’ first year in office


It’s been nearly one year since Eric Adams first walked into City Hall as the Big Apple’s new mayor, and in the 12 ensuing months he has had to contend with a barrage of crises, while simultaneously working to establish his administration and lay out his vision for the city.
