New York City will come back stronger than ever, Mayor Bill de Blasio said at a news conference Sunday morning.
The recovery will take the next 20-months of his administration and far beyond that, de Blasio said.
The mayor reminded people of 9/11 and how the city fought back.
“We will rebuild and we will be stronger,” de Blasio said.
We are going to build something new and something better, de Blasio said it will be fair and for everyone.
The mayor said the city has to fight back against the disparities made clear during Covid-19.
De Blasio will launch several councils to talk about reopening, these councils are set to start meeting on May 1.
There will be separate councils for education, small business, large businesses, public health, labor and the arts, among others.
