After announcing the expansion of the Saturday Night Light program, whose goal is to keep NYC youths safe by giving them activities to participate in during the evenings, Mayor Eric Adams promised to find the offender.
The stabbing, Mayor Adams says, “truly shows why we need to keep the lights on in schools like this so our children can have a safe atmosphere,” the mayor continued.
Mayor Adams and top NYPD officials were promoting an expansion of the city’s Saturday Night Lights program around the same time as the horrific daylight stabbing.
Adams said on Saturday that the program “is about giving young people another choice and keeping our city safe when crimes are most likely to be committed.”
Subway service in the area has been severely impacted by this investigation. For northbound 1 trains, the 96th Street station will be the last stop. The 137th Street-City College station will be the last stop on some southbound 1 trains. New Yorkers can expect the 1 train to run with delays in both directions until the crime scene is cleaned and the investigation is over.
Adams has revealed that the NYPD has started sending cops out on solo patrol in the subway system to cover more ground—over the objections of the police union.
