Photo Gallery: de Blasio at Park East Synagogue



Mayor Bill de Blasio made a supportive visit to the Park East Synagogue a few hours after the Tree of Life synagogue massacre in Pittsburgh.  Joining Rabbi Arthur Schneier for remarks in front of the synagogue, de Blasio offered both emotional support and promises of strong police protection.  Mayor de Blasio and Rabbi Schneier were joined by Rep. Carolyn Maloney, NYS Senator Liz Kruger, Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer and NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan.  Mayor de Blasio did not take press questions.

Photo Gallery: Gounardes At City Hall



State senate candidate Andrew Gounardes came to City Hall for a press conference Friday, drawing a substantial group of elected Democrats as he condemned Republican state Senator Marty Golden for paying his female staffers significantly less than his male staffers.  Gounardes is running against Golden in the general election.

Elected officials joining Gounardes included Assembly Member Jo Anne Simon, Council Member Margaret Chin, Senator Liz Krueger, Council Member Helen Rosenthal, Council Member Carlina Rivera, Council Member Justin Brannan, fellow senate candidate Jessica Ramos and Council Member Mark Treyger.  There was limited press attendance, possibly due to the discovery that morning of a mail bomb in a West Side post office and a mayoral press conference in Queens.
