No Longer Is It I Love New York But We Love NYC
Mayor Eric Adams and Governor Kathy Hochul kicked off the “We Love NYC” campaign today.
“This ‘We Love NYC’ campaign will help to capture that energy and preserve the city’s spirit by encouraging New Yorkers of every background to come together, get involved and make a positive change in their community,” Hochul said in a statement. “Listen you guys, in the 1970s things were awful here and crime was at record levels,” Hochul said.
Have they looked at the statistics? For the month of January 2023, the number of overall shooting incidents and murders in New York City stands at a 24-year high. Then there is the migrant problem and DA Alvin Braggs letting criminals run rampant.
“New York is not coming back, New York is back,” stated Adams.
Anna Uzele, who plays Francine Evans inner Broadway musical New York, New York, sang the title song at the launch.
