Thursday's City Council meeting was the last for Speaker Christine Quinn.
A record 26 pieces of legislation passed, sending Quinn out on a positive note.
She has served as speaker since 2006.
Quinn supported Mayor Michael Bloomberg's successful push to extend term limits, which allowed her to stick around for another four years.
She started out as the front-runner in the race for mayor, but came up short during the Democratic primary.
Quinn said Thursday that she doesn't know yet what she'll do next, but she's happy with her accomplishments.
"The hard days, they were on behalf of New Yorkers, on behalf of my colleagues, and I've loved every moment of it," she said. "Even the ones that were difficult to get through, they were really an honor to have had the opportunity to be a part of. And I will miss most the people, the unreal staff."
Quinn was first elected to the council in 1999.
