The New York International Auto Show has its engines roaring again at the Javits Center after being postponed for two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Governor Kathy Hochul appeared Wednesday at the Javits Center to kick off the auto show’s return. Hundreds of media members and automobile exhibitors had already flocked to the entertainment mecca by 8 a.m. on April 13 to discover the newest vehicles in the automotive industry, and among them was the Governor.
Officially welcoming back the grand affair following the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Hochul lauded the $53B business, and underscored the barriers it has faced for the past two years—production issues. She touched upon the high demand for new vehicles that the pandemic halted. She also applauded those in the automotive industry for pushing through with their ingenuity.
