At the opening of a recreation center in Harlem this morning, Michael Bloomberg made his first comments about the death of Michael Jackson yesterday.
Bloomberg, according to a transcript of his remarks sent by his office, said:
"It is very sad. It’s very sad. He was idolized by many New Yorkers, both young and old, and like everyone, everywhere, we’re just stunned and saddened by his death. I think it’s fair to say he really was a one-of-a-kind music talent. And I just want his family and loved ones to know that New Yorkers are thinking of them and that the King of Pop will always be remembered here in the entertainment capital of the world—and I will always be listening to his music. "
