This is gonna be a real Adams Apple.

Queens Councilwoman Adrienne Adams will be the next speaker of the New York City Council, besting a fellow Queens candidate supported by Mayor-elect Eric Adams.

More than 30 lawmakers in the 51-member body signed on to a statement backing the second-term lawmaker, including almost the entirety of the Brooklyn delegation, representing Adams’ home borough.

“I am honored to have earned the support and the trust of my colleagues to be their Speaker,” said Adams (D-Queens) — no relation to the incoming mayor — in a statement Friday declaring victory.

“Our coalition reflects the best of our city,” she continued. “We are ready to come together to solve the enormous challenges we face in order to not just recover from COVID but to build a better, fairer City that works for everyone.”
