Bill de Blasio at the Talking Transition tent (Brigid Bergin/WNYC)

WNYC reporter Brigid Bergin was there when Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio visited the Talking Transition tent on Canal Street to talk about his own mayorality's transition. Sort of.

De Blasio said he'd met with three top candidates for police commissioner, including former Giuliani commissioner Bill Bratton, whom, he noted, he knows personally.

The transition team is heavy on members from the worlds of education, media, the arts, health care, labor, and social justice.  Tech, finance, real estate, foundations, and religious leaders are also well-represented. Missing: transportation experts.

More on who is and who isn't on the transition team in Transportation Nation and Schoolbook.
