A spokeswoman for the 88-year-old Dinkins said Friday that he was at New York Presbyterian Hospital being treated for a lung infection.
Spokeswoman Lynda Hamilton says Dinkins is resting and “is going to be fine.”
There was no word on when he might be released.
Dinkins was treated for pneumonia at the same hospital in 2013.
He was the first Black mayor of the nation’s largest city. The Democrat served one term, from 1990 to 1993.
