Mayor Eric Adams appeared on “Mornings On 1” Wednesday to address the city’s ongoing efforts to improve cleanliness, while also deal with other quality-of-life issues facing the five boroughs.
During the interview, Adams was joined by Department of Sanitation Commissioner Jessica Tisch to outline a strategy to remove garbage bags from sidewalks, highlighting the problems they pose, including attracting rodents and diminishing residents' quality of life.
Adams noted that while this will be a “culture shift,” businesses and residents are already complying and noticing a difference in cleanliness.
The mayor also addressed recent tensions on Staten Island, where protesters confronted arriving migrants. Adams criticized the demonstrators and stressed that the migrant issue remains at crisis levels.
Reflecting on a day care death in the Bronx, he commended the city inspector for being diligent but held those responsible for protecting the children accountable.
