Mayor de Blasio takes quiet oath of office for second term


Ahead of Monday’s inauguration, Mayor de Blasio was officially sworn in for his second term Sunday at a ceremony at Gracie Mansion.


City Clerk Michael McSweeney administered the oath, which Hizzoner took before heading off to Times Square to lead New Year’s Eve festivities.


“I saw us make changes I did not think were possible,” de Blasio said of his first term in office.


De Blasio, who was reelected in November, will be more ceremoniously sworn in to his second and final term at a New Year’s Day inauguration.


Earlier Sunday, Gov. Cuomo took a swipe at de Blasio’s handling of the homelessness crisis and reform plan for Rikers Island.
