It's 2014! Huzzah! New Yorkers had even more reason to celebrate: At midnight on January 1, Bill de Blasio was sworn in as the city's 109th mayor. While that ceremony was closed off to the public, the new mayor opened up the bigger inauguration ceremony at City Hall—which also served as the swearing-in for Comptroller Scott Stringer and Public Advocate Letitia James—to Gothamites.


The photo above is from the De Blasio family's grand entrance to the festivities; in keeping with the new mayor's populist sensibilities, they took the 4 train to get to City Hall. (One person who didn't seem happy yesterday: Mayor Bloomberg, unsurprisingly.)
