As next year’s mayoral race begins to heat up, Politicker took a look back and dug up the high school yearbooks of some of the likely candidates. Our journey into the past unearthed evidence of Bill Thompson’s musical talents, John Liu’s love of skateboarding, Tom Allon’s plans to be a doctor and some truly incredible vintage hairstyles.
Click through our slideshow to see photos of Messrs. Thompson, Liu and Allon as high school seniors. We were unable to find yearbooks for two of the probable mayoral candidates; Bill de Blasio, who went to Cambridge Rindge & Latin School in Massachusetts, and Christine Quinn, who went to Holy Child Academy on Long Island. To hopefully make up for these omissions, we included a yearbook photo of the current mayor, Michael Bloomberg.
