Mayoral race frontrunner Eric Adams confirmed, “I live in Brooklyn,” as he became the target of an opening pile-up at his primary home address by four other candidates participating in a debate Wednesday night.
“Eric, unfortunately, has not only been straightforward, but he has also been a hypocrite. He spent months attacking me for not being a New Yorker, meanwhile he was attacking me from New Jersey,” Top-tier candidate Andrew Yang, who has faced criticism for running away from his second home in New Paltz for months during the pandemic, told the CBS mayoral debate, which featured just the top five candidates.
Yang referred to Adams’s tour, saying, “I’m glad you’re here to answer some of these questions, Eric, but unfortunately, his tour of the basement has answered more questions than many New Yorkers, including mine. Pick up.” To select journalists from his apartment on Wednesday.
Far-left candidate Maya Wiley, who rose to prominence in a recent poll after backing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, said residents of the Big Apple don’t care where Adams sleeps — but they do care that that topic About transparent.
“I really believe that New Yorkers don’t care that much about where Mr. Adams lays his head, but it’s pretty clear that New Yorkers want a mayor who is completely forthcoming and completely honest,” Wiley said. Said former Mayor Bill de Blasio attorney, claiming that Adams has overturned in police cases like stop-and-frisk.
“It only happens by accident when I go to New Jersey,” controller Scott Stringer said with a playful one-liner.
“And I want to invite everyone to my two-bedroom apartment to visit my wife and kids, but you can look in the refrigerator, because you don’t want to go there,” quipped Stringer, telling him not. Looks like what should be the talk of the town on Thursday evening is where Adams spends his nights.
Adams was then allowed to fully defend his Brooklyn residence, and posed for his stump speech and bio.
“I live in Brooklyn. I live in Bedford-Stuyvesant. I’m happy to be there, it’s a beautiful community. I live there, a humble place, but it’s a blue-collar place. I’m a blue-collar candidate.” I am,” he said.
“I live in Brooklyn, New York. I’m proud of that,” he said. “We can play these silly conversations, but we can do what Scott Stringer said. I know what worries people on the ground, because I am on the ground.”
