Former Mayor David Dinkins has been hospitalized.

He was admitted to New York-Presbyterian Hospital late Wednesday with a mild case of pneumonia.

A spokeswoman called it a mild case of pneumonia, adding that the former mayor is expected to be released soon.

Earlier this week, the 86-year-old was one of the hosts of a fundraiser for Democratic mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio.

De Blasio was an aide in the Dinkins administration and met his wife Chirlane McRay while working at City Hall.

NY1 has reached out to the De Blasio campaign for comment.
