Addressing the issue, NYC Mayor Eric Adams said, “We have to deal with the actualization of the crime. I say this all the time, the increase in numbers. We have had an unprecedented decrease throughout the years…So we have to deal with that. But it’s also the feeling. How are New Yorkers feeling every day?”
