NYC Mayor-Elect 10 Inches Taller Than Bloomberg

Bill de Blasio, at 6-foot-5 towers over 5-foot-7 Bloomberg

City Hall offices may need new furniture when Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio takes over from Mayor Bloomberg, who stands 10 inches shorter than him.

De Blasio, at 6 feet 5 inches, will be New York City's tallest mayor in recent memory.

Ed Koch was said to be taller than 6 feet, Rudy Giuliani and David Dinkins were of average height, and Bloomberg once referred to himself as 5-foot-7.

Bloomberg infamously listed his height as 5-foot-10 on his drivers license, but he was not the shortest mayor by far.

Fiorello LaGuardia and Abe Beame were both 5-foot-2.
