New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is criticizing Gov. Andrew Cuomo for “not acting with New York City’s interests at heart.”

De Blasio unleashed a barrage of criticisms against Cuomo on Tuesday.

The two men, both Democrats, had long touted their two decades of friendship.

But Cuomo has thwarted much of the mayor’s agenda.

And last week he slammed the mayor’s attempts to push the city’s platform in Albany. The state’s legislative session closed last week.

De Blasio had largely refused to criticize the governor. That’s now changed dramatically.

The mayor said he had hoped to build a partnership with the governor but had been “disappointed at every turn.”

A request for comment to the governor’s office was not immediately returned.
