Brooklyn Borough President

by Gotham Gazette Staff, Jul 17, 2013
 

The office of borough president was created at the time of the consolidation of Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island into the City of Greater New York in 1898. The idea of borough president, the charter said, was to preserve "local pride and affection." But the presidents' heyday drew to an end in 1989 when the Board of Estimate was eliminated and their powers diminished. Today, the borough presidents make a few appointments, chair the borough boards, and oversee the delivery of services in their boroughs. They can also propose legislation in City Council. (Adapted from "Being Borough President," Gotham Gazette, 2005)
