The 2017 mayoral election is over, but the photos live on.
Our photo retrospective covers the race from a 2016 endorsement of Bill de Blasio and a January 2017 appearance by Paul Massey through election night. I’ve chosen this selection from the more than 100 campaign events I attended.
I initially focused on the Republican primary, as a half dozen prospective candidates worked to set campaigns in motion. There wasn’t a Republican primary of course, as Eric Ulrich and John Catsimatidis opted against running, Michel Faulkner switched to the comptroller’s race, Paul Massey dropped out in late June and Bo Dietl, having boffed his party registration change, never managed to get the needed Republican Party consent to appear on the ballot, but those candidates were still my primary focus.
