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.

Court documents show that Robert C. Chapman, 50, told an individual on the popular dating app that he "did storm the capitol," and that he even "made it all the way to Statuary Hall," but little did he know that the person would decide to take action.
Chapman also bragged about being interviewed by members of the media during the riot, to which the Bumble user simply replied, "We're not a match."
The Bumble conversation was held on January 13, just one week after the Capitol insurrection took place, and the individual quickly sent a screenshot of it to law enforcement.
The dating app conversation paired with body camera footage released by the Metropolitan Police Department helped confirm his identity and his claim of being at the Capitol on that day and he was charged on four misdemeanours including "Violent Entry and Disorderly Conduct on Capitol Grounds."
McDonald's might not come to mind when thinking about going out for a luxurious dinner in Long Island, New York, but this one might be the exception.
Long Island's Denton House has a 200-year history behind it, and it's highly unlikely that the creators of the building had any idea that it would eventually be turned into an outpost of one of America's favorite fast-food chains.
You don't exactly feel like you have stepped into a McDonald's when you walk through the entrance, as everything from the floor to the ceiling sticks to the luxurious style, aside from a few fire alarms and bathroom signs.
Things start to look a little more familiar when you make your way to the cashier counter, where you can see workers flipping burgers and frying french fries as you get ready to order the same thing you've been ordering since you were 7.
It may be the same food we've all enjoyed throughout our lives, but the fact that the restaurant actually rests in a mansion that is over 100 years old will make it a truly unforgettable and bougie fast-food experience.
An Asian woman was attacked in front of a New York City building Monday morning, but witnesses failed to help her as they watched the incident unfold.

The woman, 65, was on her way to church when a stranger reportedly kicked her down and stomped on her head while making anti-Asian statements, according to the New York Police Department (NYPD) in a Facebook post that includes a graphic video of the incident.
The surveillance video of the incident shows building staff watching the incident unfold but failing to assist the woman, and even closing the door as the suspect, who remains at large, fled the scene.
The New York Post reported that the woman suffered a fractured pelvis and was taken to a local hospital where she is said to be in stable condition. The NYPD is offering up to $2500 for information regarding the assault.
