New York City mayoral hopefuls Andrew Yang and Curtis Sliwa made unannounced appearances at the wake for slain NYPD officer Anastasios Tsakos Monday afternoon.
Yang, the Democratic frontrunner for the crowded race, arrived at the Saint Paraskevi Greek Orthodox Church in Greenlawn, Long Island sometime after 2 p.m. and stayed for about thirty minutes.
The businessman was flanked by two campaign aides and didn’t make any comments to the press when he entered or when he left. When his campaign was reached by The Post later, they declined comment.
Sliwa, the founder of the Guardian Angels and one of two Republican candidates for mayor, told The Post he attended the viewing for about an hour but he typically goes to wakes and funerals for police officers who die in the line of duty.
“It was good to see that he was paying his respects because to be honest I didn’t see any of the other candidates,” Sliwa said of Yang’s appearance.Both Andrew Yang (left) and Curtis Sliwa (right) are running for mayor of New York City.Getty Images
“I must say they were very respectful, it wasn’t a campaign stop as I’ve seen done in the past, very somber, you know he didn’t quite know everyone like I did but I wouldn’t expect that because he’s new to this,”
Tsakos, a 43-year-old veteran highway officer for the department, was killed early Tuesday morning by an admitted drunk driver on the Long Island Expressway while investigating a previous accident on the roadway.
The married dad of two was struck so violently that his body was thrown at least 100 feet and his patrol boot flew off his severed leg, a witness told The Post.
Sliwa said Tsako’s family was clearly “crushed” by their loved one’s tragic death but they appreciated the outpouring of support.

Katie Holmes and Emilio Vitolo Jr. split after 8 months
More On: katie holmes Katie Holmes and Emilio Vitolo Jr.’s romance is fizzling out Katie Holmes celebrates Suri Cruise’s 15th birthday Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise spotted shopping before Christmas Emilio Vitolo Jr. confirms Katie Holmes relationship via Instagram
Katie Holmes and her boyfriend, Emilio Vitolo Jr., have split after eight months of dating.
“The pair have parted ways amicably but remain friends,” a spokesperson for the actress told Us Weekly on Thursday.
Holmes, 42, and the chef, 33, apparently had trouble keeping the spark alive due to their busy careers.
“Katie and Emilio really enjoyed their time together — it just simply didn’t work out,” a source told the magazine. “She’s focusing on being a mom and her upcoming projects.”
Page Six reported last month that the couple’s romance was starting to fizzle out.
“Katie has a lot of big priorities in her life — she’s a single mom, her daughter [Suri] always comes first and things were moving very fast,” a source had told us at the time.
Rumors of their relationship coming to an end had sparked when Vitolo was noticeably absent from Suri’s 15th birthday celebration earlier in April.Holmes and Vitolo, seen here in November 2021 with his father, were spotted all over the city together.GC Images
Holmes is currently spending much of her time shooting a new movie on location in Connecticut and therefore has only sporadically been in New York City, where Vitolo and his Italian restaurant are based.
They were first linked as a couple when they were spotted together in September 2020. Shortly after, the duo were seen looking hot and heavy all around the Big Apple as they showed PDA everywhere from the subway to Central Park.
The “Dawson’s Creek” alum previously dated Jamie Foxx, but they broke off their notoriously private romance in August 2019 after six years together.
Holmes shares Suri with ex-husband Tom Cruise, to whom she was married from 2006 to 2012.
