A list of everything imperial mayor Michael Bloomberg banished from his kingdom during the past 12 years

Bloomberg as emperorAt midnight Tuesday, Michael Bloomberg — aka his nannyship, self-anointed emperor of everything east of the Hudson River up to and including parts of Long Island (viz., the boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens)  — was finally sent packing.  (It would be technically incorrect to add “from Gracie Mansion,” because the official mayoral digs were never up to Bloomberg’s own lofty standards of living, prompting him to eschew the executive mansion for his own ultra-luxurious apartment).

Now that the sun has officially set on the Bloomberg  Years, let’s sit back with a sugared soda of at least 17 oz., a good cigar, and a large pizza with extra triglycerides and take stock of all that this man has done for (to?) the Big Apple. The following is a comprehensive list of everything Bloomie banned during his way-too-long tenure (h/t Gizmodo for all but the last item in the lengthy list).

Needless to say, Bloomie’s replacement, Bill de Blasio, promises to run an even tighter ship than his predecessor, pledging not only to renew Bloomberg’s efforts to ban large soft drinks but in essence to ban charter schools.
