NYC mayor-elect gets advice from New Yorkers

NEW YORK (AP) — Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio (dih BLAH'-zee-oh) is getting some new ideas for New York City.

New Yorkers are offering their opinions on what he should do on everything from schools and health care to affordable food. It's part of a project called "Talking Transition."

Members of de Blasio's transition team on Sunday visited a huge tent set up in lower Manhattan to field suggestions.

New Yorkers sent in their ideas online. And for the past week, they also visited the tent on Canal Street and Sixth Avenue to scribble hundreds of notes posted for future city officials to consider.

Taireina (thai-REY'-nah) Gilbert belongs to a group called Farm School NYC. They're planting produce that's cheaper than what's in city supermarkets.

Her note read: "Support for small community owned business!"
