An election was held in New York City to election the President of its Council on November 2, 1897. The charter of the new City of Greater New York had created a bicameral Municipal Assembly, comprising an upper Council and a lower Board of Aldermen. The Council president was elected citywide while the Board of Aldermen elected its own president.[1]

Democrat Randolph Guggenheimer defeated Republican candidate Appleton, N. D. and C. U candidate Schmann, and O'Neill, who ran under the label "Democrat of Thomas Jefferson", to win the Council Presidency.[2]

The bicameral Municipal Assembly would prove to be short-lived, and it was replaced with a unicameral Board of Aldermen in 1901, whose President was elected citywide.[3]
