April 10, 2022

On his 100th day in office, New York City Mayor Eric Adams today released a list of key accomplishments from Harlem to Hollis.

The list is demonstrating ways in which his administration has worked to ‘Get Stuff Done’ for New Yorkers. Since being sworn in on January 1st, Mayor Adams has focused on delivering results and addressing the most pressing challenges facing New York City.

“When I became mayor, I made a simple promise to New Yorkers to ‘Get Stuff Done,’ and we’ve done just that over the last 100 days,” said Mayor Adams. “Since January, my administration has lived up to our promise to New Yorkers, addressing the issues that matter the most to our city’s residents, from fighting the epidemic of gun violence to giving our kids and youth access to better jobs and educational opportunities. Our work is far from over, but we will continue to push forward an agenda that meets the needs of each and every New Yorker every single day.”

Highlights from Mayor Adams’ first 100 days in office include:

Making New York City Safer and Protecting New Yorkers’ Quality of Life:

  • Launched a nine-point Subway Safety Plan that expands response teams and mental health services, adds trained clinicians to connect people with resources, and directs New York City Police Department (NYPD) officers to enforce MTA rules. Uniformed officers are deployed into the transit system daily, conducting station inspections and platform patrols. More than 256,000 subway inspections were conducted between January 6 and April 9.
  • Created a Blueprint to End Gun Violence that refocuses the NYPD on the individuals responsible for the majority of shootings in the city and the sources of guns in the five boroughs, empowers violence interrupters, provides jobs and enrichment programming for at-risk youth, expands mental health care, and improves collaboration between the city, state, and federal government.
  • Launched the first wave of Neighborhood Safety Teams focused on combating gun violence, which in their first three weeks of operation made 132 arrests and recovered more than 25 guns. Of those arrested, 73 were previously arrested on a serious criminal charge, 20 have some involvement with a gang or crew, and 21 are on parole or probation.
  • Implemented a new Citywide Crime and Quality of Life Enforcement Initiative focused on the 17 precincts that account for almost half of the city’s shootings. Under the initiative, Neighborhood Safety Teams will work seamlessly with neighborhood and youth coordination officers, as well as with the field intelligence officers who focus on identifying the locations and individual drivers of violent crime in each command.
  • Advanced the Gun Violence Strategies Partnership, which facilitates real-time communication and information sharing across law enforcement and prosecutorial agencies at the city, state, and federal level, focusing on the worst gun offenders in New York City.
  • Launched a multi-agency initiative aimed at the revitalization and restoration of the 125th Street corridor, to address concerns voiced by local merchants and commerce organizations regarding deteriorating social conditions.
  • Kicked off Saturday Night Lights, a youth development initiative that provides free sports programs for over 3,000 young people every Saturday night at 106 gyms across the city.
  • Launched a series of new initiatives with the White House and the U.S. Department of Justice dedicated to tackling the gun violence crisis, including a major commitment of federal resources.
  • Signed an executive order increasing coordination between Fire Department and Department of Housing Preservation and Development inspectors to identify safety violations earlier and increase fire safety compliance.
