A special Valentine's Day cover of "The New Yorker" magazine will have people seeing Mayor Michael Bloomberg in a different light.

The magazine has an image of a bewitched Bloomberg, offering chocolates and champagne to his own loving mirror image.

"I thought it was great," Bloomberg said. "I thought it was cute looking in the mirror. I've said this a thousand times. I like what I see in the mirror. I hope everybody here does."

Bloomberg, who turns 69 on February 14, spoke of his work ethic, his children and his philanthropy when asking, what's not to love?

"I get up in the morning and I work as hard as I can, and my kids have turned out great," he said. "You know, I'm a lucky enough guy to have made a lot of money, and I'm giving it all away and making a big difference."
