Bill de Blasio became the first Democrat to win the New York City mayor's race since 1989, defeating Republican challenger Joseph Lhota in a landslide vote in Tuesday's election.

So how does Mayor Michael Bloomberg feel about his soon-to-be successor?

Not too good, it would appear.

In an impromptu photo during his first face-to-face meeting with the mayor-elect, Bloomberg appears to be none-too-thrilled.



"U Mad, Bro?" is how Gawker captioned the image, taken by WNYC's Brigid Bergin.

"WNYC's @brigidbergin brings us this heartwarming photo of pals," Paul DeBenedetto ‏tweeted.



In subsequent photos, though, Bloomberg appeared to be less standoff-ish. "Bloomberg was speaking softly" to de Blasio, Bergin reported.
