NEW YORK - New Yorkers showed their appreciation as outgoing Mayor Michael Bloomberg bid a final farewell from City Hall.

Bloomberg reflected on his 12 years as mayor as he left the office for the final time Tuesday to the cheers of hundreds of staffers and well-wishers.

He also commented on the progress the city has made, saying in part, "We showed the country and the world that you can be how you want to be, love whoever you want to love."

Bloomberg has said that he'll take a two-week vacation before resuming a role at the business media company that bears his name. He also plans to continue funding political causes he cares about most, including gun control.
