Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg went shopping on Saturday, and all he bought his girlfriend was a pair of fleece gloves for $29.99.
Oh, and he bought them at a Modell’s Sporting Goods — specifically the one at the Queens Center Mall in Elmhurst. It’s safe to say that most people who live in Mr. Bloomberg’s neighborhood, on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, have probably never pulled their credit cards out at that particular mall.
Though there is a Modell’s on Third Avenue near 86th Street, a few blocks from Mr. Bloomberg’s town house, and another on Chambers Street, close to City Hall, Mr. Bloomberg chose to shop in Queens because “he is the mayor of all five boroughs,” said a spokesman, Jason Post.
But Mr. Bloomberg did not have just his loved ones in mind during his morning shopping excursion. He spent $135.46 on a boy and girl he had never met.

"He is the mayor of all 5 boroughs." Give me a break. Diana: dump him, he's cheap. And he does shitty photo-ops. But this does show that even billionaires won't shop at Atlas Park...
