New York City Mayor-elect Eric Adams announced that his swearing-in ceremony will take place during the Times Square New Year's Eve celebration. 
Adams will be sworn in as the 110th mayor of New York City by the city clerk.  Adams will use his family’s Bible to take the oath of office, according to a release Wednesday. 
He will be joined by members of his family to celebrate this historic moment.
“Times Square has long been synonymous with the New Year — a place of excitement, renewal, and hope for the future. These are the same themes that animated my campaign and will inform my mayoralty, as I prepare to lead the city out of this challenging period. I am deeply humbled to officially take the oath of office at this iconic occasion, and to participate in the transfer of leadership that is a cornerstone of our democracy,” said Mayor-elect Adams.
“We are honored and thrilled that Mayor-elect Adams has chosen to be sworn in before the world in Times Square after the clock strikes midnight,” said Times Square Alliance President Tom Harris. “The New Year is a time to look forward to the future and we are looking forward to working with Mayor-elect Adams to continue the recovery of Times Square and the rest of our city.”
