(NEW YORK) Hello, fellow New Yorkers! Welcome back to the New York City Daily Roundup, the best way to catch up on the latest local news. After a night full of elections across the boroughs, there's plenty to read about this Wednesday, Nov. 3.

Today's weather will peak at 52° with no rain in sight for the rest of the day. The last of the warm weather is behind us now as we approach the middle of autumn and prepare for winter.

Aside from the weather, here's what you need to know this Wednesday in New York City:

1.) Eric Adams to serve as next mayor after landslide win over Curtis Sliwa

Former Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams continued his winning ways Tuesday after defeating Republican candidate Curtis Sliwa in the mayoral election. Adams will become the second Black man to serve as New York City mayor — after David Dinkins did so in the early 1990s.

"Today we take off the intramural jersey and we put it on one Jersey: team New York," he said during his victory speech. "So brothers and sisters, and the people of our city, they have spoken. And tonight, New York has chosen one of you. One of our own. I am you."

2.) Alvin Bragg wins election to serve as Manhattan's first Black District Attorney

Democrat Alvin Bragg made history on Tuesday after winning the Manhattan District Attorney election. He will be the first Black man to hold the vital role, which will oversee cases pertaining to former President Donald Trump.

Bragg defeated Republican candidate Thomas Kenniff and will replace Cyrus Vance Jr., who is retiring after completing his final term.

3.) New York Ranger lose in Vancouver in matchup against J.T. Miller's Canucks

The Rangers traveled to Canada for a Tuesday matchup against the Vancouver Canucks, which the Blueshirts lost in overtime by a score of 3-2.

The Rangers headed into the final period with a lead but gave up two goals within the first 5:19 of the third. Former Ranger J.T. Miller scored the dagger in overtime to hand his former squad their second loss on the road.

“It’s tough to lose in OT like that,” Gallant said. “They made a great play. We had a great scoring chance before that. We battled here.”
