Mayor Bill de Blasio delivered the 2015 State of the City address this morning. The speech highlighted some of the major accomplishments over the past year, some of the upcoming challenges we face as a community, and some priorities for the administration as we move through the rest of the year.
We will not lose sight of why our city is a beacon for so many. It’s not the cleanest place, nor the most tranquil. We don’t have the best weather or many alluring natural landmarks. But we have something special, something unique: an idea at our core – a promise– that ours is a city…for everyone.
