It looks like New York City will be open just in time for the summer. On Thursday, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that there are plans to have the city fully reopened by July 1st.
De Blasio discussed the city’s reopening and said, “What we’re seeing is that people have gotten vaccinated at extraordinary numbers. This is going to be the summer of New York City. I think people are going to flock to New York City because they want to live again.”
Of the businesses expected to reopen, people can expect to enjoy going to restaurants, bars, gyms, hair salons, barbershops, arenas, and stadiums, theaters, museums, and more. According to CNBC, as of Wednesday, more than 6 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been distributed, and more than half of the city’s adult population has received at least their first dose.
