New York City Plans On Fully Reopening This July

New York City may finally be coming back to life this summer

Mayor Bill de Blasio, speaking on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," said he wants to make this summer the "summer of New York City," as he looks to reopen the city 100%, including stores, restaurants, gyms, office buildings, and theaters.

De Blasio said the high rate of vaccinations in the city makes him confident that it will be a safe and appropriate time to reopen at "full strength."

"What we're seeing is people have gotten vaccinated at extraordinary numbers," he said. "We know the vaccination effort is going to grow and grow. We gotta keep working hard at that but what's amazing is every single day we're beating back COVID more and more."

Broadway is also expected to make a full comeback starting in September, but the mayor said he would "love to see" smaller shows up and running by July or August.
