Trivia Answer - Borough President

When was the office of the Borough President Created?

It was created in 1898.  Originally the Borough Presidents of all five boroughs each had a vote on the the New York City Board of Estimates, but with the boroughs not being equally populated, this was ruled unconstitutional in 1989.  Since that ruling the office has been of an advocate for the boroughs.
