The mayor said the visit was profound.

“We have so much abundance here and if you don’t believe we do then you really need to go on the front lines to see the makeshift housing people are living through without electricity that give to a lack of running water,” Adams said.

He noted that New York City has the largest Dominican and Puerto Rican populations outside of those native islands.
