NYC Mayor de Blasio + Wife Confronted For Walking In Brooklyn Park

Mayor Bill de Blasio and wife Chirlane McCray traveled 11 miles from Manhattan to Brooklyn’s Prospect Park for a leisurely stroll — and New Yorkers aren't happy about it.

“Seriously, you guys have a park. You live in the middle of a park. You don’t need to non-essentially travel to Brooklyn,” Twitter user Darren Goldner says, referencing Carl Schurz Park near Gracie Mansion, in a Twitter post he shared.

de Blasio responds, “C’mon guys give it a break,” as he and the first lady continue to walk away. “I’m not going to give it a break. This is selfish behavior,” Goldner shouts to the backs of the mayor and McCray. “This is so terribly selfish. You call yourself a progressive, but you chauffeur yourself to Brooklyn. You force people to drive you.”

This not the first time de Blasio and McCray have been spotted walking in Prospect Park since the coronavirus pandemic started.
