New York Mayor pledges to get the city back on track

 Saturday, March 12, 2022 


After the pandemicdamaged New York City, Mayor Eric Adams is hoping to boost the city toward an economic revival by attracting tourists back, beautifying the streets and embracing New York’s impending legal pot industry.

Adams unveiled an economic development plan that he said would herald a “New New York.”

“We will never be the same. COVID has changed the game. And we must be prepared to win in the game,” Adams said.
New York City, with a population of 8.8 million, became the early epicenter of the COVID-19 outbreak in the U.S. and was again affected this past winter with the emergence of the omicron variant.

COVID-19 battered New York City’s economy, making unemployment soar high.

With rates of virus cases and deaths having dropped considerably, the new mayor has sought to reform everything, declaring that the virus cannot control New Yorkers’ lives and the city needs to get back on track.

Last week, Adams announced ending two of New York City’s toughest COVID-19 safety measures, removing requirements for masking in public schools and vaccinations for patrons of restaurants, gyms and other venues.

“We can’t stumble into post-COVID. We must start to think about the redefinition of what our city is going to look like,” said Adams.
