Looks like New York City mayor Bill De Blasio is very happy that the resignation of governor Andrew Cuomo has become official on Tuesday.
According to reports, the moment after Cuomo ended his political career, de Blasio made a tweet that celebrated the “Greatest city in the world.”
“Greatest city in the world,” de Blasio tweeted at 12:01 a.m., along with a photo of Lower Manhattan’s skyline set behind the Brooklyn Bridge.

The tweet was made after Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul took control as New York’s first female governor.
On many occasions, de Blasio and Cuomo are at odds with each other publicly.
In a taped farewell speech, Cuomo himself chided de Blasio by saying that Eric Adams will be the next mayor of New York City.
“I think he’ll bring a new philosophy and competence to the position which can give New York City residents hope for the future,” Cuomo said of Adams in his speech.
