Deputy Mayor Dan Doctoroff To Leave City Government

Dan Doctoroff has announced that he will be stepping down from his position as deputy mayor for economic development, as of the end of this month. While Doctoroff's decision to step down before the end of the Mayoral term seems a little sudden, it was not prompted by any rift with the mayor: Doctoroff's new job will be president of Bloomberg's information corporation, Bloomberg LP.

During his years with the city government, Doctoroff has been involved with many projects, including the failed bid for the 2012 Olympics, the reconstruction of Ground Zero, and the Hudson Yards project. He has also been involved in many neighborhood rezonings, including the rezoning of the Williamsburg-Greenpoint waterfront, and the recent rezoning plan for Coney Island.
