New York City Mayor Eric Adams’s State of the City Address
The mayor plans to inform migrants of opportunities in other cities and work with national nonprofits to identify welcoming communities. He will also create a 24-hour intake center at Port Authority of New York City for asylum seekers.
Adams’ plans drew considerable interest from both the public and media. Gothamist and Politico featured his commitment to streamlining housing developments – such as hotel and office conversions – into his plans.
Early Life and Education
As a teenager, he taught private students in a one-room schoolhouse. From this experience he gained insight into the fact that successful teaching depended on encouragement rather than punishment.
At 19, he decided to follow his dream of becoming an attorney and traveled abroad, studying German language and writing sketches for local newspaper publications. While there, he worked as law clerk to save up enough money so he could apprentice under an attorney.
Adams gave an interview to WNYC’s Gothamist at our Greene Space on his plans to make NYC more affordable, safer, and healthier. Specifically he discussed keeping repeat offenders off of NYC streets; connecting job seekers to employment; initiating curbside composting programs; and increasing housing development including turning office buildings into apartments.
