We’re In This Together

Dear neighbors,

At this unsettled moment, I hope this message finds you and your family healthy, safe and taking appropriate precautions as we all grapple with the implications of COVID-19.

The impacts of the coronavirus are felt citywide, and while we are cognizant of disruptions that may alter all of our routines, we have also taken great comfort in the vigilant and prudent response by businesses, individuals and organizations to maintain composure while protecting those who are most vulnerable.

At the Downtown Alliance, our planning and decisions are guided by updates and recommendations from local, state and national resources, including the Centers for Disease Control, the New York State Department of Health and the New York City Department of Health.

New Yorkers have always banded together, especially during tough times. We know that what impacts some of us impacts all of us. I am thankful to be part of such a strong community, one that knows that we are all in this together.
