That’s what I must do.” And if he can’t… “If I am just the second African American mayor of the city of New York and I failed to stop the systemic problems that we have been facing, then I’ve failed… those who laid the path for me to be here,” Adams said.

    Eric Adams (D) was sworn in early Saturday as the 110th mayor of New York City just after the New Year's Eve crystal ball dropped in Times Square. Adams, a former city police captain, proclaimed that "New York is back" during the ceremony, according to the New York Times. “Trust me, we’re ready for a major comeback because this is New York,” he told a pared down crowd. An indoor inauguration ceremony in Brooklyn had been canceled due to COVID-19 concerns. During the ceremony in Times Square, Adams held a picture of his late mother, Dorthy, who passed away last spring and was sworn-in using a family Bible, the Times noted.

Adams had initially said the indoor ticketed event would see 3,000 invites sent to family members, community leaders and 'a diverse group of New Yorkers'.  'It is clear that our city is facing a formidable opponent in the Omicron variant,' he said. 'After consulting public health experts, we have decided that our joint inauguration ceremony will be postponed to a later date in order to prioritize the health of all who were planning to attend, cover, and work on this major event,' the statement read.  'We thank the Kings Theatre for their interest in hosting this exciting moment in our city's history, and everyone who has been working hard to plan this celebration.

    In The Big Apple, a man celebrated legal weed by smoking marijuana in front of two NYPD officers -- all caught on camera. "Happy quarantine!" the man greets the cops as he inhales and exhales. FAMILY OF NYC ASIAN HATE CRIME VICTIM THANKS ANONYMOUS GOOD SAMARITAN WHO DIVERTED ATTACKER'S ATTENTION New York adults over the age of 21 can now possess and use marijuana — even in public — under a legalization bill signed Wednesday by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, though legal sales of recreational-use cannabis won’t start for an estimated 18 months until regulations are set. Passed after several years of stalled efforts, the measure makes New York the 16th state in the nation to legalize adult use of the drug. New York becomes the second-most populous state after California to legalize recreational marijuana. Legalization backers hope the Empire State will add momentum and set an example with its efforts to redress the inequities of a system that has locked up people of color for marijuana offenses at disproportionate rates. The legislation provides protections for cannabis users in the workplace, housing, family court, schools,...

    SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — Nine people were shot at a Saturday night “celebration” in central New York, authorities said. Of the nine victims, one was in critical condition and eight were stable with non-life-threatening injuries, Syracuse Police Chief Kenton Buckner said. No one was immediately taken into custody, and Buckner emphasized that the investigation was in its early stages in an appearance at a press conference alongside Syracuse Mayor Ben Walsh. Syracuse officers had arrived at the scene just before 9 p.m. for reports of a stolen car, but responding officers were met with by people who said shots had been fired into the crowd of a “few hundred,” Buckner said. The police chief said his officers didn’t hear the gunshots.
