Eric Adams, the front-runner in the race for mayor, is the subject of criticism now that a news article has raised questions about where he actually lives. He responded by inviting reporters to what he says is his basement apartment in Bedford-Stuyvesant. NY1’s Zack Fink, Courtney Gross and Juan Manuel Benítez comment on the controversy and tell us whether they think this matters to voters.
They also sit down with fellow mayoral candidate Maya Wiley to ask her why she thinks she’s the progressive choice for New York, and to learn more about her ideas on public safety and education.
And don’t miss our live “Off Topic/On Politics” episode this Sunday, June 13, at 8 p.m., on the Clubhouse app! Zack, Courtney and Juan will take live questions from New Yorkers, so you'll have a chance to take part in the conversation!
