Democratic mayoral candidate Andrew Yang followed through on a campaign promise made just last week to residents of the Jewish community of Kew Gardens Hills – to return before Election Day. Yang joined Assembly Member Daniel Rosenthal, who delivered an endorsement early in the campaign. They began the afternoon greeting passengers at the Kew Gardens subway station and continued onto Kew Gardens Hills, where Yang spoke with community members, heard their concerns, and posed for photos. Yang reaffirmed his commitment to public safety. “Nothing is going to work in our city unless we and our families are safe on our streets and in our neighborhoods.” He vowed to tackle this challenge as his first task in office.

The walk along Main Street with Rosenthal began in front of Grill Point at Main Street and Jewel Avenue and continued with a visit to the Chazaq headquarters. The assemblage continued to the Yang billboard at the Forest-Hills-bound Q-64 bus stop for a special photo session and concluded at Bravo Pizzeria, where the candidate enjoyed a signature slice.
