These photographs of Mayor Bloomberg are from a week and a half ago, but they are timeless in Gothamist's book. There's the logo's funny triangle above his head (like a weird hat) while he closes the New York Stock Exchange. And then he's with young carolers, making us hum "Which one of these things is not like the other? Which one of these things is not the same?" Of all the initiatives Mayor Bloomberg is probably considering for the New Year, we hope that photo ops like these remain a priority.
