NEW YORK — Since Election Day, Mayor-elect Eric Adams typically has been in a celebratory mood. Friday was no different, at an event in his home borough opening a new school library.

"I may be graduating from Borough Hall and going to the university of City Hall, but I am going in with the understanding I am going to talk to you on the ground," Adams said while visiting the local high school.

Despite the promise, for the third day in a row, Adams had to answer questions about another promise, this one a signature campaign proposal: to bring back the NYPD's controversial anti-crime unit.
