Video: The Formal Inauguration of Mayor Bill de Blasio

Joined on stage by Bill Clinton, Harry Belefonte, Public Advocate Tish James, David Dinkins, and his family, Bill de Blasio formally took the oath of office today shortly after noon.

"Our common cause is to leave no New Yorker behind," de Blasio said. 

Pres. Clinton called de Blasio's family, "our real modern family.” De Blasio thanked ex-Mayor Bloomberg for his committment, Chiara de Blasio blew kisses and a DJ played hip hop.

Dasani Coates, the homeless girl made famous in a NY Times series, held the bible as Ms. James was sworn in.
