The subway is the fastest way to travel around NYC. I hope that our new mayor E. Adams tackles the homelessness problem we have in the city and particularly in the subways like Giuliani and Bloomberg did. All that effort overnight was destroyed by an utterly incompetent deBlasio.

It is time to flood the subway with cops/mental health experts to get these dangerous people out of the system. How many of these random acts do we need before action!
