Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams discusses his concerns, goals and vision for the ever-changing communities throughout Brooklyn. A born and bred Brooklynite, Eric Adams started his career as a police officer, serving 22 years on the force. He began his political career as a State Senator representing Brooklyn districts. To say Adams has experienced the transformation of Brooklyn first-hand would be an understatement. They talked a lot about real estate, but during their conversation, Adams told Cohen about his passion to apply his views on health and mindfulness to city government and education and his dream to one day become the Mayor of New York City.
