NYC Buildings Chief Resigns as Prosecutors Examine Gambling Ties

Eric Ulrich, a former city councilman under investigation from Manhattan prosecutors, resigned on Thursday from his post as commissioner of the city’s Buildings Department. The commissioner of the New York City Department of Buildings resigned on Thursday, a day after being questioned by prosecutors from the Manhattan district attorney’s office who are investigating him for possible organized crime ties and illegal gambling. The resignation of Eric Ulrich, 37, a former Republican city councilman from Queens, was confirmed by a spokesman for Mayor Eric Adams. “This morning, Eric Ulrich tendered his resignation as D.O.B. commissioner in an effort to, in his words, avoid ‘unnecessary distraction for the Adams administration,’” the spokesman, Fabien Levy, said in a statement. “We have accepted his resignation, appreciate him taking this step, and wish him well,” Mr. Levy added. “We have no further knowledge of any investigation.”
