Now is your chance: New York’s Daily Intelligencer will be sitting down for video chats with the leading candidates to become the next mayor of New York City — Bill de Blasio, John Liu, Christine Quinn, Bill Thompson, and Anthony Weiner — and the questions will come from readers. What sources do the candidates trust to get their news? Which former NYC mayor do they see themselves in and why? What’s the craziest thing they’ve ever seen on the subway? Perhaps you have a detailed policy inquiry. Submit your curiosities in the comments, by e-mail to, or via Twitter using #NYMagAsks, and we’ll select the best ones. (Questions can be directed to specific candidates or the lot of them.) But be warned: We already know enough about Carlos Danger to last a lifetime.
