Mayor Adams’ top cop has been privately meeting with workers at top Big Apple businesses to convince them that NYC is safe as the city struggles to get workers back full-time amid the uptick in violent crime, The Post has learned.
Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell has held a series of unique, virtual security briefings with major companies that have requested them since April and has another meeting on the books Thursday morning with Adams and the Big Four accounting firms, according to sources and a copy of the invite reviewed by The Post.
But if this video of a woman begging for help on a New York City subway while her fellow passengers do nothing (except film it) is any indication, then, no, we don’t think employees are very eager to come back to work in the city anytime soon:
New York City subway crimes skyrocketed by more than 200% this past week compared to the same time in 2021, after several reports of heinous attacks in the transit system and despite Mayor Eric Adams’s crackdown efforts.
There have been 375 subway crimes reported this year as of May. 26, compared to the 217 during the same period in 2021, the NYPD found.
Total index crime – meaning crime that falls under the NYPD’s seven major offenses – was up 47.7% year-to-date, the department found.
Crime is up but what frightens me most is the fact that people only filmed as the woman suffered at the hands of a “man”
20-30 years ago this man would have been easily beaten by the other people on the train!
