Fantastic Quote From Outgoing New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg

January 1, 2014

This not only sums up the wonder and promise of New York City, but is a great quote to start off another year of blogging at Caffeinated Politics.

With a subtle lump in his throat and occasional crack in his voice, Mr. Bloomberg thanked the handful of commissioners and deputy mayors in attendance and celebrated the city’s diversity–after quoting a recent speech by the Pope.

“The fact that a Jewish kid can quote the Pope in a secular building built by protestants in front of Hindu, Muslim and Sikh leaders, really, I think, says all you need to know about New York City,” he said with a smile, ending his speech with words of hope.
