New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Tuesday the city is beginning to see a “leveling off” in the red zone cluster areas across Brooklyn and Queens.
The mayor said the city is days into the restrictions imposed in the red zone and “we are seeing some results.”
“This is the week we can start changing the tide in those fundamental areas,” the mayor said.
Very robust enforcement has begun and will deepen across those areas, de Blasio added.
There were at least $150K in fines and over 100 summonses given out in the red, orange and yellow zone areas over the weekend, the mayor said.
