    Highlights From the City Hall Press Office:      

“Summer Streets” Coming to All Five Boroughs: Mayor Adams announced a major expansion of “Summer Streets,” bringing the popular program to all five boroughs over five Saturdays between July and August and doubling its size to span car-free 20 miles. Building on last summer’s two-mile expansion into East Harlem and the restoration of the three-Saturday schedule, this year’s program will be the most ambitious version since Summer Streets launched in 2008 and brings a continued focus on equity. More than 500,000 people walked, ran, cycled, or played on Summer Streets last year.   

Nation’s First Minimum Pay Rate for App-Based Restaurant Delivery Workers: Mayor Adams announced that the City of New York has set a first-of-its-kind minimum pay rate for app-based restaurant delivery workers. When fully implemented, the city’s more than 60,000 delivery workers — who currently earn $7.09/hour on average — will earn at least $19.96/hour. Restaurant delivery apps will also have flexibility in how they pay delivery workers the new minimum rate.   

Key to the City Awarded to Robert De Niro: Mayor Eric Adams awarded a Key to the City of New York to legendary actor and co-founder of the Tribeca Festival Robert De Niro for his lifetime of achievement and service to New York. Mayor Adams presented the key to De Niro as they celebrated the actor and philanthropist’s decades of contribution to film and over 20 years since the founding of the Tribeca Festival. De Niro, a born and bred New Yorker, is one of the most celebrated actors of all time. He has received numerous accolades, including two Academy Awards, a Golden Globe Award, the Cecil B. DeMille Award, the Golden Lion, the American Film Institute Life Achievement Award, and a Presidential Medal of Freedom.
