Transit union stands alongside mayoral candidate Adams in seeking more safety in subways

A “roundhouse” punch to the head in a robbery between a man and a female victim on Sunday at the First Avenue station on the L train in the East Village on Sunday sparked a call by mayoral hopeful Eric Adams to expand on his plan to combat crime and chaos.

Monday morning, Adams stood alongside Transport Workers Union Local 100 and Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez in announcing that, if elected, he would deploy social workers into the transit system and surge NYPD into stations and trains.
