Questions to How Well Do You Know New York Politics?

City Hall

       Here are the questions to the Jeopardy! answers about “Mayors of NYC” that I posted last week:   

  1. 17th Century mayor Cornelius Van Steenwyck was born in this country – maybe in Haarlem. – What is the Netherlands?
  2. In 1880 Irish-born William Grace became NYC’s first mayor of this faith. – What is Roman Catholic?
  3. In 1904 Mayor McClellan liked his ceremonial task starting this new transit, so he drove the train the whole route. – What was the subway?
  4. Mayor 3 different times from 1800 to 1815, he was “De” man to improve American infrastructure. – Who was DeWitt Clinton?
  5. George Opdyke was mayor during the Civil War & quashed this related NYC event of July 1863. – What were draft riots?

I surprised myself by getting all of them correct (I don’t follow politics too closely) – how did you do?
