Rudy Giuliani’s New York City Hall Portrait, Painted by Everett Raymond Kinstler, is Unveiled


NEW YORK (AP).- Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani returned to City Hall on Tuesday for the unveiling of his official portrait, which shows him in a dark pinstripe suit as a tribute to his beloved New York Yankees. The painting, which captured Giuliani’s trademark toothy grin and dimples, joins a collection of more than 100 portraits in the nearly 200-year-old City Hall. The portraits include U.S. presidents, New York governors and 44 other New York City mayors. Giuliani, who served two terms from 1994 to 2001 and earned accolades for his handling of the city following the Sept. 11 terror attacks, was painted by Everett Raymond Kinstler, an artist commissioned to paint portraits of two U.S. Supreme Court justices, four secretaries of state and various other dignitaries and
