Governor Cuomo: "How do you know the subway is going to be safe on reopening day? If it wasn't safe, I wouldn't ask anyone to go on the subway. And for me, it's very simple. I just assume I'm making the decision for myself and for my children. If the subway isn't safe for me, then I wouldn't ask anyone else to go on the subway. Today, I took a ride on the 7 Train. The M.T.A has done phenomenal work and I encourage New Yorkers to practice proper safety as they return to the subways during New York's reopening."
