Mayor Bill de Blasio was put under scrutiny a couple years ago when he was photographed eating pizza with a fork and knife. Everyone said, how can he be a real New Yorker if he eats Pizza like that?! Of course it was mostly all in good fun. But, Bill still had to redeem himself. Before the snow storm started yesterday he sat down to have a slice at Lee's Tavern on Staten Island. This time he decided to eat it like a 'real New Yorker' with his hands! He made sure it was documented for the world to see. Has he redeemed himself?
I have deemed the pizza at Lee's Tavern on Staten Island structurally sound enough to eat without a fork and knife. pic.twitter.com/yddVW8aGpt— Bill de Blasio (@NYCMayor) February 9, 2017
