A prominent real estate executive will challenge Bill de Blasio in next year's race for New York City mayor.

Republican Paul Massey announced his candidacy Thursday, Tweeting: "This is not a tale of two cities, this is the world's greatest city and diversity is our strength."

It's a dig at Mayor de Blasio, who had promised to end what he called a "tale of two cities" that divides the wealthy and poor.
