Happy birthday, Peter Vallone

Current and former city officials gathered in City Hall on Tuesday for a surprise party in honor of former Council Speaker Peter Vallone’s 80th birthday.

Presented with a cake by former Mayor David Dinkins, Vallone was lauded by Mayor de Blasio as a major contributor to the ongoing drop in crime in the city.

In addition to the party and cake with family and friends, Vallone’s portrait was unveiled for him inside City Hall, where it will remain.

Vallone, whose sons Peter and Paul were also elected to City Council, served as speaker from 1991 through 2001.
