Mayor Eric Adams reflected Thursday evening on a day spent alongside the President of the United States, and the plan to tackle gun violence.
Around the same time President Joe Biden was being driven to JFK Airport after a late afternoon visit to P.S. 111 in Queens, Mayor Adams returned to City Hall in order to discuss the historic visit and the way in which the president outlined efforts to help stop rampant gun violence in the Five Boroughs.
According to Adams, he urged the president to meet with local community groups who use proactive methods in order to prevent youth from ever picking up a firearm to begin with. The mayor ushered Biden to Long Island City where he spent time alongside advocates who have dedicated their lives to ending bloodshed in their neighborhood of Queensbridge Houses.
