In 2003, something almost unthinkable happened at City Hall when Brooklyn Councilman James Davis was killed by an assassin in the chambers of the City Council.
The shooting sent shockwaves across the city, with New Yorkers stunned that a murder could occur in the building, which is heavily guarded by police.
To reflect on Davis’ legacy on this week’s podcast, NY1's Errol Louis is joined by New York City Mayor Eric Adams, Davis’ brother Geoffrey and three people who were inside City Hall on that fateful afternoon: state Sen. James Sanders (who was then a city councilman), Democratic consultant Lupe Todd-Medina and former NY1 political reporter Michael Scotto. They also discuss Davis’ impact on Brooklyn politics and what his future might have been.
