Broadway is dark, the city’s 1.1 million public school students are home from school, and the Big Apple’s 27,000 restaurants will close their doors to diners Tuesday — but none of those warnings could keep Mayor Bill de Blasio from a trip to his favorite public gym in Brooklyn on Monday morning.
“Text I just received (from someone who is definitely not making this up): ‘I just walked by DeBlasio [sic] going into the Y to work out so YOLO?’” a Twitter user named Teddy Goff wrote at 10:08 a.m.
The mayor’s continued gym-rat routine — which includes a 12-mile drive from Gracie Mansion to Park Slope with his NYPD detail — had some of his former staffers fuming.
The Mayor’s actions today are inexcusable and reckless,” tweeted Rebecca Katz, a longtime de Blasio confidante.
