Former NY Mayor Dinkins hospitalized for pneumonia

NEW YORK (AP) — Former mayor David Dinkins is being treated for pneumonia at a New York City hospital.

The 88-year-old Dinkins told the Daily News on Friday that he was at New York Presbyterian Hospital being treated for a lung infection.

The former mayor added, "I can't talk right now. I'm with the doctors."

Dinkins was treated for pneumonia at the same hospital in 2013.

Dinkins was the first black mayor of the nation's largest city. The Democrat served one term, from 1990 to 1993.
