Our hearts break for our city at this time. Our city has been turned upside down and we have lost so many of our neighbors to this awful virus.
But we will emerge from this crisis. The number of infections is dwindling because our community is coming together to stop it. From the health care and essential workers who are on the front lines, to those staying at home to stop the spread, everyone is doing their part. Never before has the power of community been so visible.
When we emerge on the other end of this crisis, our city will be more resilient than ever, with a community connected not just by our virtual experiences, but by the bond that every single New Yorker has helped end this crisis.
For you, our friends who have advocated for access to the river for all and share our vision of a safe place for New Yorkers to access one of our most valuable natural resources, we will call on you to pick up where we left off when the time comes. In the meantime, we hope you will continue to do your part for your community and that you you stay safe, stay positive and stay inside.
