Who is Chiara De Blasio
Chiara was raised in Park Slope, Brooklyn. But in 2019, she moved to a swankier postcode – Gracie Mansion, the official residence of the New York City mayor since Fiorello La Guardia opted to live there in 1942. It was constructed in 1799.
At the time, city officials came under fire for using the New York Police Department executive protection unit, “assigned to guard Mr. de Blasio and his family,” to help Chiara move into the new residence.
“For all of Mr. de Blasio’s focus on income inequality, his mayoralty has been dogged by questions of whether his personal behavior contradicts his political message,” The Times said.
“Using city resources for personal use is typically a violation of the city’s Conflicts of Interest Law, and having police detectives assist in a relative’s move would seem to cross ethical lines.”
Family, Mother Chirlane McCray
Chiara’s mother, Chirlane McCray, was born in Springfield, Massachusetts, and began her career as a writer, editor, and poet with Redbook magazine.
She initially came out at a lesbian in a 5,000-word piece, ‘I Am a Lesbian,’ five years after graduating from Wellesley College, in 1979.
Later, as a married woman and “first lady” of New York, while never entirely discounting that she still identified as a lesbian, she would go on to eschew the label of lesbian altogether.
Meeting in 1991 and marrying in 1994, Chiara’s parents Bill and Chirlane honeymooned in Cuba on violation of a travel ban. Seven months after they got married, Chiara De Blasio was born. Three years later, in 1997, her brother Dante was welcomed into the world.
While her mother attended Wellesley College, de Blasio the Younger studied sociology at Santa Clara University, graduating in 2016.
Chiara De Blasio Arrested
Among the hundreds of protesters arrested over the four days of demonstrations in New York City over the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, only one was highlighted by name by a police union known for its hostility toward Mayor Bill de Blasio.
The name of that protester? Chiara de Blasio, the mayor’s daughter.
The union, the Sergeants Benevolent Association, used Twitter to post a police report documenting the arrest on Saturday night of Ms. de Blasio, 25.
The Police Department does not normally release internal police reports, and Ms. de Blasio’s contained personal details, including her height, weight, address, date of birth and driver’s license information.
The post was removed for violation of Twitter rules, and the union’s account was suspended Monday morning.
“The account is temporarily locked for violating our private information policy,” a Twitter spokesman confirmed.
