After the New Year’s Eve ball fell, Eric Adams was sworn in as Mayor of New York City

Read Time:3 Minute, 50 Second


Eric Adams is the new mayor of New York City. The Democrat will be sworn in at a ceremony in Times Square on Saturday, shortly after the New Year’s sound in the largest city in the United States.

Adams, 61, faces the huge challenge of pulling the city out of the pandemic. When he took office, the city was struggling to deal with a record number of Covid-19 cases driven by a variant of omicron.

As the confetti continued to float across Times Square, Adams recited his oath of office. Associate Judge Sylvia O. Hinds-Radix of the State Supreme Court Appeal Division was sworn in. Adams put one hand on a family bible and the other hand held a photo of his mother Dorothy, Dorothy in 2020 Passed away.

He did not make any comments or answer questions from reporters, but appeared in “Dick Clark and Ryan Seacrest’s New Year’s Rock Night” shortly after being sworn in.

He told Seacrest that he had several parties to attend, but he would “get up early in the morning and work for New York City.”

He appeared briefly on the main stage earlier to affirm the resilience of the city.

He said earlier that night: “Even in Covid, among everything we are experiencing, this is a country where hope and opportunity always exist, always exist.”

“It was great when New York showed the whole country how we returned,” he said. “We showed the world what we are made of. We are incredible. This is an incredible city, and believe me, we are ready for a major return because this is New York.”

Adams is a former New York City police chief and mayor of Brooklyn. Compared with his predecessor, he took a more business-friendly and gentle stance, but described himself as a pragmatic and progressive mayor who would “do things good”. He is the second black mayor of New York City after David Dinkins, who served from 1990 to 1993, and the 110th mayor of New York City.

Adams said this week that he plans to retain many of the policies of outgoing mayor Bill de Blasio, including the country’s strictest vaccine regulations.

Municipal workers in the city must be vaccinated, and anyone who tries to eat indoors, watch a show, exercise at the gym, or attend meetings must be vaccinated. However, New York City also newly requires employees in the private sector to receive injections. This is the most extensive authorization in all states or large cities, and it is also a policy that Adams said it will retain.

He is also committed to keeping the school open and avoiding further suspension of classes in this city of 8.8 million people.

Even if there is no mandatory closure, the city is struggling to cope with the de facto closure due to widespread Covid-19 infection.

Several subway lines were suspended because the positive test results of bus workers resulted in too few employees to run ordinary trains.

The Rockets’ Christmas performance was cancelled this season, and the New York City Ballet cancelled the remaining performances of The Nutcracker. Several Broadway shows were closed due to Covid-19 cases, and restaurants and bars around the city were temporarily closed due to staff testing positive.

Adams said that he and a group of consultants are studying whether to expand the city’s vaccine regulations, plan to distribute masks and rapid testing, and introduce a color coding system to remind New Yorkers of the current level of threat posed by the virus.

As a candidate for mayor, Adams described the process of growing up in poverty in Brooklyn and Queens, and talked about crime, law and order, and racial injustice, which combined his experience as a former sheriff, a police officer who criticized his own department, and experiencing atrocities. The experience of the young people is in the hands of the police.

Adams promised to become a doer in the mayor’s office, but sometimes a non-traditional politician, he is expected to put his own mark on this role.

He is a vegetarian, wrote a book on how plant-based diets can help him treat diabetes in 2020, and showed his favorite smoothie recipes on social media. As everyone knows, he frequents some nightclubs in the city, and when he appeared on Stephen Colbert’s late night show, he said, “This is a nightlife city. I have to test the product. I have to go out.”
