BROOKLYN - Two mayoral hopefuls turned up at the same Brooklyn train station to meet potential voters with just five days left to campaign.

Public Advocate Bill de Blasio and Sal Albanese were in Bay Ridge Thursday morning. One is at the top of the heap in the latest polls, and the other at the bottom, but neither one is giving up on the Democratic nomination.

News 12 caught up with the candidates on Bay Ridge Avenue to find out why New Yorkers should support them. Both De Blasio and Albanese touted affordable housing plans and different education reforms.

The voters will get a chance to weigh in on Primary Day this Tuesday, Sept. 10.
