The world we knew a few short weeks ago won’t be back for a long time.
But your city is still here for you. Send your questions, comments and concerns about COVID-19 using the hashtag #AskMyMayor. I’ll be here every morning to bring you the answers.
When will you finally shut down nonessential construction - like all of the luxury residential development - to prevent further spread of #covid19 on sites? #askmymayor
#AskMyMayor when will rent be suspended? Thanks in advance.
#AskMyMayor will “the essentials” ever get a chance to quarantine or will we just have to try not to bring the virus home everyday? Got people out here risking their lives and their family safety for minimum wage.
#Askmymayor Why are non essential construction sites still going? Are luxury condos and office buildings more important than workers lives? #StopConstruction
#AskMyMayor - I am recovered from virus (17 days post fever), how can I be tested for antibodies and more importantly use my newfound (hopeful) immunity to help others? Surely there's a way and there is going to be more and more of us each day.
Why is there no rent freeze when people aren't working? #askmymayor
#askmymayor what are you doing about nyc construction sites. We are exposed to large groups every day. I’m doing my best but we shouldn’t be coming in unless it’s for emergency work.

Why the poor and middle class have to be on the brink of death to get tested for Covid-19? @NYCMayor
Please put harder restricions on people congregating in parks. Spring is here and apparently the desire to play is bigger than social distancing. It hurts to say but close parks or have police monitoring them giving out fines. Below from 3/24 6:30 at Carl Shurz Park #AskMyMayor https://t.co/nVtBZ1WPbJ
Why haven't we frozen all rent? This would save both the poorest New Yorkers AND the New York businesses that are harmed the most by this crisis. #AskMyMayor
Mr. Mayor, please freeze all the rent payments. We don’t work, don’t get paid when staying home , to stop the spread , and protect each other in NYC. please answer ... #AskMyMayor
When will you suspend rent and utility bills? #AskMyMayor
About 4 in 10 #Latinx's in #NewYorkCity have lost their jobs because of #Covid19
We need to ensure that the #stimulusbill protects everyday workers & not just big businesses
What is the city doing to make sure that people experiencing #domesticviolence and #harassment have the adequate services, supports, and shelter needed to #stayinside safely?
Why is NYPD arresting people for nonviolent crimes and putting them in dangerous holding cells? This is a public safety crisis, and this practice is going to make it worse. Ticket them and move on.
, when is rent suspension starting? Hint:(yesterday). #AskMyMayor
#AskMyMayor Why do you think that decent American taxpayers should cover your budget when you blow through your budget giving everything free to illegal aliens?
That's on you,not decent taxpayers who follow the laws of this nation
I feel 0 empathy for New York's financial issues
1) All essential workers should get hazard pay.
2) The safety of essential workers should be a priority.
The handling of this so far is abysmal. #AskMyMayor https://t.co/kOgHtR6b2d
What about checks for those unemployed and a rent freeze #AskMyMayor
You are doing a great job, it cannot be unnoticed.. BUT you really need to freeze rent. There are many people who will starve just because they are trying to pay the rent. There are many of us who don’t have something to fall back on. #AskMyMayor
#askmymayor if we cant work how are we going to pay rent!
#AskMyMayor Surely rent can be cancelled for residential renters who lost jobs as Cuomo did for residential mortgages??? Also, cancel public utilities, incl & esp internet & phone. W/medical system shut down & our only access to drs is online video we must have them #CancelRent
#AskMyMayor do the essentials get hazard pay since they are putting themselves at risk everyday?
#AskMyMayor We desperately need 3 month #CancelRent for residential & small business renters, or we'll have a mighty crisis.
. #NYC & the entire country SHOULD HAVE RENTS (AND MOVE OUTS/MOVE INS) AND MORTGAGES SUSPENDED. How is everyone expected to continue paying while unemployed? What makes landlords or banks any more privileged over the rest of us during this nightmare? #askmymayor #COVID19 #help
Will #rent be suspended and if so, when? Many of us have lost our jobs and many more will be unable to pay rent April 1st and beyond. #rentfreeze #RENTSTRIKE #coronavirus #stimulusbill #WednesdayMotivation #AskMyMayor #NYC #nyccoronavirus
