New York City Democrats held a rally on Sunday afternoon in Verdi Park, on West 73rd Street and Broadway, and virtually every important New York politician — federal, state, and local — came. The goal was to get out the vote for the November 2nd General Election. The organizer was Manhattan Borough President/City Council Candidate (again!) Gale Brewer.
Speakers included Governor Kathy Hochul, Brooklyn Borough President and Democratic Mayoral candidate Eric Adams, Rep. Jerry Nadler, Sen. Charles Schumer, Attorney General Letitia James, Public Advocate Jumaane Williams, NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer, Councilmember and Manhattan Borough President candidate Mark Levine, Assemblymember Linda Rosenthal, and many others. The crowd was large and enthusiastic. “Love Fest” is not an exaggeration.
