New York Has a Housing Crisis. How Would the Mayoral Candidates Fix It?

The winner of the Democratic primary is almost certain to become the city’s next mayor. In a report released this year, the Community Service Society, an anti-poverty group, said Mr. de Blasio’s administration had significantly expanded investment in affordable housing. Mr. McGuire said he would borrow $2.5 billion a year over eight years, which would help finance the construction of more than 350,000 housing units. He said he would spend up to $500 million to create about 3,000 affordable units for older people with little income. She said the program would help keep people from becoming homeless, freeing up money that would have gone to shelters to finance the subsidies instead.

I’ve never seen it so bad.”In southeast Queens, Ayo Olanipekun, 53, a pilot, ranked Mr. Adams, the Brooklyn borough president, first, then Mr. McGuire and Maya Wiley. Political groups are encouraging New Yorkers to vote early to avoid long lines on Election Day. Al Sharpton, the civil rights leader, held a rally on Saturday with several leading candidates to encourage people to vote early. Mr. Sharpton decided not to make a mayoral endorsement this year, disappointing Mr. Adams who had been pushing hard for his support. Still, on Saturday, Mr. Sharpton defended Mr. Adams regarding questions about his residency, saying that Mr. Adams clearly lived in Brooklyn.

The party’s left wing still holds extraordinary sway, and the mayor’s race, which will be decided by ranked-choice voting and largely shaped by local concerns, is far from the only test of its power. Progressive lawmakers are a force in the State Legislature and have already triumphed by passing a far-reaching budget agreement. The New York City chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America, which has stayed out of the mayor’s race, is focusing instead on City Council primaries. Some activists say that if the trajectory of the mayor’s race has sometimes been worrisome, it has more to do with controversies surrounding individual candidates than with New Yorkers’ largely progressive attitudes. But with Mr. Trump out of office, voters have become more focused on recovering from the pandemic than on politics.

Kathryn Garcia Is Fine With Second Place

Brooklyn, N.Y.As they jostle to get ahead of each other in a crowded and anarchic primary, the Democratic candidates for New York mayor resemble a cluster of bumper cars. On other days, the lead has been with Kathryn Garcia, former head of the city’s Sanitation Department, and even Maya Wiley, who bounced close to the top of the heap this week after receiving an endorsement from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Viewed another way, no candidate in this perverse mayoral election has consistently led in the opinion polls—which this year have been desultory, even a little derelict. To be fair, the pollsters have struggled not only with canvassing opinion amid a pandemic, but also with the novel form of ranked-choice voting introduced for this election. How do you conduct a call in which you ask an already impatient stranger—finger ready to disconnect—who his second, third and fourth choices are?

"We know there are a lot of Democratic voters who call themselves progressive and support progressive values but think AOC is a little too far left."

The top five Democratic candidates in the race to be the next mayor of New York City will face off Thursday night in a televised debate two days before early voting begins. Ms. Wiley was ranked as the top choice by 17% of the voters, the poll showed. The primary will take place on June 22 but early voting begins at select polling locations on Saturday. The primary will be the first time ranked-choice voting will be used in a citywide race. With Democrats vastly outnumbering Republicans in New York City, the winner of the Democratic primary is considered the favorite to be the next mayor.

Eric Adams, the former NYPD captain and president of the Borough of Brooklyn, answered questions about his residency status on Wednesday, allowing local reporters to tour his Central Brooklyn home. "If I'm not at Borough Hall, I'm here," Adams, a Democrat, told reporters inside his ground-floor, red-brick home. The tour came after a Politico New York report raised serious questions about Adams' main residency, which is a requirement to be mayor of the city. Adams said he has used the New Jersey property occasionally but said the Brooklyn home is his main residence. Adams, who has criticized Yang, saying he left the city during the pandemic, was joined by his 25-year-old son, Jordan, during the tour.

The third official debate among major Democratic candidates for mayor of New York City takes place Thursday evening from 7 to 8 p.m. Unlike the two previous debates, only four of the leading candidates are set to attend: Kathryn Garcia, Scott M. Stringer, Maya Wiley and Andrew Yang. Another front-runner, Eric Adams, also was invited, but said he would attend a vigil for a 10-year-old who was fatally shot in Queens instead. The event is the last televised debate before the start of early voting on Saturday ahead of the June 22 primary. Here are some of the ways you can watch and follow the debate:

Top Mayoral Rivals Attack Adams and Clash on Policing and Ethics

More than any other candidate, Mr. Adams has discussed issues of rising gun violence and other crime, at a time when polls show public safety to be a top priority for New York Democratic voters. At the debate, the contenders focused on issues of gun violence as well as hate crimes. She went on to sketch out plans for confronting mental illness and homelessness as part of the solution. And as in previous debates, some of the clearest distinctions in the field emerged over issues of public safety, as Ms. Wiley staked out some of the most left-leaning positions on the stage. Asked about the idea of taking guns away from New York Police Department officers, every candidate except for Ms. Wiley said no.

“Many people are surprised to learn a number of iconic places in our city are named after individuals who held people as slaves,” Mr. DuBois said. Rikers Island, which houses New York City’s main jail complex, is named for the Riker family, which includes Richard Riker, who sent Black Americans into slavery. Ms. Wiley was able to cast herself as the leading progressive candidate in the debate, helped in part by Mr. Stringer’s scandals and Dianne Morales’s absence on the debate stage. Ms. Kramer interjected to ask if she would take the officers’ guns away from them. Ms. Kramer tried one last time: “But will you take the guns away from the N.Y.P.D.

Mr. Adams, a former police captain, has topped a number of recent polls as he presses a message focused on public safety, but the race appears fluid even in the final days. A Spectrum News NY1/Ipsos poll released earlier this week showed Mr. Adams leading the Democratic field, followed by Andrew Yang, the former presidential candidate, and Kathryn Garcia, the former sanitation commissioner. Jumaane D. Williams, the New York City public advocate, endorsed Ms. Wiley on Wednesday. Questions about how Mr. Adams spends his time when not on the campaign trail injected a new element of uncertainty into the race and offered fresh fodder for his opponents. “Eric Adams has a problematic record of not being fully honest or transparent with the voters of New York,” Ms. Garcia said in a statement on Wednesday.

I didn’t even feel it when Dr. Chester pierced my arm.”New York was about to get a second chance. Wall Street boomed and property values soared, drawing foreign investors who parked their fortunes in constantly appreciating New York City real estate. Mayor Bill de Blasio, now in his second and final term, has proposed the biggest budget in New York City history. Of the 100 biggest school districts in America, New York City’s school system already spends the most per capita. The mayoral candidate Kathryn Garcia, formerly the commissioner for the New York City Sanitation Department, pulled ahead in the polls in late May.

Eric Adams Draws Fire for Skipping Mayoral Debate
  + stars: | 2021-06-08 | by ( Anne Barnard | ) www.nytimes.com sentiment -0.89   time to read: 1 min
Turbulence again rocked the New York City mayoral race on Tuesday, as Eric Adams, a leading contender, came under fire from two directions, even as two rivals, Kathryn Garcia and Maya Wiley, displayed signs of growing support. Mr. Adams, the Brooklyn borough president, first drew criticism for his decision to skip a new debate among the top candidates scheduled for Thursday; he will instead attend a vigil for a 10-year-old killed in gun violence in Queens. Then questions emerged over where Mr. Adams actually lives, after Politico reported some inconsistencies in public records that suggested that he did not live in the Brooklyn apartment where he had registered to run for mayor. During the pandemic, Mr. Adams has often slept in Brooklyn Borough Hall, a habit that he has apparently continued in recent weeks. He also co-owns an apartment in Fort Lee, N.J.

With two weeks to go before the Democratic primary, the progressive left has seemed to have coalesced around a single candidate, relying on a time-honored technique: self-elimination. The candidate is Maya Wiley, the former counsel to Mayor Bill de Blasio. He was an original progressive favorite, until two women came forward with decades-old allegations of inappropriate sexual advances, causing many progressives leaders to withdraw their support. Next to run into trouble was Dianne Morales, the former nonprofit executive whose campaign mutinied, tried to unionize and then accused her of union-busting. It was a bad look for a woman who has run on empowering the grass roots.

New York City police faced criticism from Democratic mayoral candidates after they cracked down while enforcing a curfew in a city park Saturday evening. The NYPD couldn’t protect him, but they could march through a park in riot gear, terrorizing people to enforce an arbitrary curfew. Mayoral candidate Andrew Yang, a former presidential candidate who has called for more police presence on subways, said: "Washington Square Park has always been a place to gather and enjoy summer nights. Sending officers in riot gear and militarizing a public park should never be the answer." The city Parks Department, the Washington Square Park Conservatory and the mayor's office also did not respond to requests for comment.

Native New Yorker and U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, one of the Democratic Party's leading progressive voices, on Saturday endorsed Maya Wiley's bid to become the next mayor of New York City. The New York Democrat's nod could give a boost to Wiley, a former lawyer for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who has lagged behind Democratic frontrunners Eric Adams, Andrew Yang and Kathryn Garcia. "We have an option of a candidate who can center people, racial justice, economic justice and climate justice," Ocasio-Cortez said during her announcement in New York City. "[Wiley] didn't just come up to run for mayor but has experience and has a lifetime of dedication to this." "She will be a progressive in Gracie Mansion," Ocasio-Cortez said, referring to the mayor's official residence.

In a weak field, Kathryn Garcia stands out as the candidate best prepared to run New York City. In a race that was supposed to be a clash between progressive and moderate visions for the city, Garcia has been managing to sidestep that fight with a message about competence. "Garcia gets it done" is her slogan, and she's widely praised for her track record as a manager in unglamorous city agencies including sanitation, environmental protection, and the New York City Housing Authority. Garcia does not have a lot of charisma, nor does she have an especially grand ideological vision. For eight years, New York City has had a mayor who seems bored.

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, one of the most prominent left-wing leaders in the country, endorsed Maya D. Wiley in the race for New York City mayor on Saturday, urging voters to “come together as a movement.”Ms. Ocasio-Cortez’s endorsement represents the most significant development yet in left-wing efforts to shape the June 22 Democratic primary that is almost certain to determine the city’s next mayor. Ms. Wiley, a civil rights lawyer and former counsel to Mayor Bill de Blasio, appeared alongside Ms. Ocasio-Cortez outside City Hall in Manhattan. “If we don’t come together as a movement, we will get a New York City built by and for billionaires, and we need a city by and for working people,” Ms. Ocasio-Cortez said. 1.”For months, it was unclear whether Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, 31, would use her platform to influence the mayor’s race. Her backing could cement Ms. Wiley as the liberal standard-bearer in the contest, and signal a new measure of viability around her campaign.

“We need a plainclothes unit to go after illegal guns,” Mr. Adams says, adding that he’d fund it by eliminating clerical jobs in the department. We hired them to go after violent crime.”Like his opponents, Mr. Adams opposes widespread stop and frisk. “It is unconscionable that three out of four shooters are still on the loose in Brooklyn.”Mr. Yang’s critics, including Mr. Adams, write him off as unserious. That’s the case for many attendees at an Asian-American rally for Mr. Adams in the Flushing neighborhood of Queens on a Sunday morning.

The leading Democratic contenders for New York City mayor, former presidential candidate Andrew Yang and Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, faced harsh attacks from each other and a half dozen rivals during a televised debate on Wednesday. "We know that you've been investigated for corruption everywhere you've gone," Yang said, calling Adams "unprincipled." 1/3 Andrew Yang, Democratic candidate for mayor of New York City, speaks during a rally against Asian hate crimes following the May 31, 2021 unprovoked attack on a 55 year old Asian woman, in Manhattan's Chinatown district of New York City, U.S., June 2, 2021.
