Who will carry on Bloomberg's legacy?

With his promise to put Main Street ahead of Wall Street, Bill de Blasio has emerged as an unlikely frontrunner in the New York mayoralty race.

Global attention on the race to succeed Michael Bloomberg after 12 years as Mayor of New York City has mainly focused on the late entry into the Democratic Primary of Anthony Weiner, a disgraced former Congressman apparently incapable of keeping his iPhone in his pants. It deserves deeper scrutiny than that. New York City Hall, a $70 billion enterprise serving a population of eight million over five boroughs, is widely seen as the second biggest prize in US politics after the presidency.
