Brooklyn son Eric Adams is ‘blue collar’ mayoral candidate

“There’s nothing fancy about me,” he said. “I have calluses on my hands. I understand what everyday New Yorkers are going through when I see their faces on the subway system or when they are trying to ensure they can provide for their families. I’m a mayoral candidate that has gone through a lot and I think it’s to have a mayor that has gone through a lot so he can help people that are going through a lot.”
