Mayor Eric Adams and Governor Kathy Hochul have outlined a plan they say will make New York “work for everyone.”
The centerpiece of the proposal is to turn office space into homes. That would increase housing and reduce commuting times.
"Our administration is committed to building a 'New' New York – a safer, fairer, and more prosperous city that will continue to adapt and thrive throughout the 21st century,” Adams said.
The plan will also transform public space to increase foot traffic, helping small businesses in the area.
"We are no longer living in the same New York as we were at the beginning of the pandemic, and these proposals will help to revitalize our business districts, ease New Yorkers' commutes, promote equity and tackle our 800,000-unit housing shortage,” Hochul said.
