The Mayor of New York City is the chief executive of the New York City Government, as stipulated by the Charter of the City of New York.

This list through 1897 includes the mayors of (roughly) what is now considered Manhattan and The Bronx only. The five boroughs were consolidated in 1898. See History of New York City.

The 108th and current Mayor of New York City is Michael Bloomberg, a Republican.

It is interesting to note that although New York City voters are overwhelmingly registered Democrats, the city has elected a Republican in the last 4 mayoral elections.
