New York City Mayor Eric Adams and New York Governor Kathy Hochul HOKUL on Friday unveiled a plan to make the city’s subway system safer.
Adams, a former New York City transit police officer, announced the plan to remove homeless and mentally ill people from the subway system.
The move is in response to a deadly incident last month.
It involved a homeless man with a history of mental illness pushing a woman to her death in front of a subway train.
Just last Thursday, a homeless man stabbed a passenger in an unprovoked attack.
The safety measure is a joint initiative between New York City and the state of New York.
