Ten days after Mayor de Blasio took a helicopter ride from Brooklyn to Queens, his office still refuses to explain what he was doing on that fateful Friday and why he needed to fly between boroughs.
The Daily News is calling on our readers to help solve the case of the airbound mayor. We're asking anyone who has any information to please email the News at firstname.lastname@example.org.
His schedule isn’t much of a help.
Hizzoner had an 8:30 a.m. appearance at the Association for a Better New York breakfast in Midtown Manhattan, and called into a radio show at 10:30 a.m.
There’s nothing else on the schedule to explain why he was in Brooklyn and needed to take a chopper to his 6:30 p.m. speech at the opening of the New Electrical Industry Training Center in Long Island City.
His office won’t say what he was doing, except that he wasn’t at the Prospect Park YMCA, his favorite hangout, and that he was at a series of meetings in Brooklyn.
Why did he take a helicopter? Because he could.
