NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio has been in office for 100 days and some New Yorkers are not sure he is doing the best he can, while others wonder what happened to all the promises he made and all the talk about a tale of two cities.

He is the first Democratic mayor of America's largest city in a generation, and gave his report card speech at Cooper Union, the location where Abraham Lincoln announced his presidential campaign in 1860.

De Blasio connected Lincoln and liberal heroes ranging from Kennedy to the activists who began the gay rights movement at the Stonewall Inn, to his mission to fight the city's inequality gap.

His speech did not mention the largest problematic issue that former Mayor Bloomberg left behind. Those expired labor contracts with 150 municipal unions. Negotiations have begun and since they're seeking retroactive raises which could cost NYC billions and endanger Bill de Blasio's agenda. Let's see where the Mayor decides to take The Big Apple.
