See Mayor Bloomberg's official portrait, now residing at City Hall
Bloomie may be on his way out, but the official portrait commemorating NYC's 108th mayor—and the bull pen he famously installed at City Hall—is now on view
Mon Dec 30 2013
As the city prepares to say goodbye to Mayor Bloomberg, one indelible nod to his legacy was installed at City Hall today: An official portrait of New York City's 108th mayor, painted by Jon R. Friedman, was installed at City Hall today. The work depicts Hizzoner standing above the bull pen he famously installed at the mayor's HQ when he took office in 2002. (It's yet another Bloomberg innovation that could be rolled back once mayor-elect Bill de Blasio takes office.)
