On June 30, de Blasio summoned a small group of reporters to his office at New York’s City Hall for an extraordinary, soul-bearing interview about his recurring disappointment in Cuomo. Since that moment six months ago, the difficult relationship between the state’s two most powerful Democrats has become even more toxic. De Blasio angrily ended months of silence with that June 30 interview, saying he had “been disappointed at every turn” and then said that he was aware that his comments could prompt Cuomo to hold a “vendetta” against City Hall.
