If you take responsibility, it's yours. I'm responsible for the schools. I'm responsible for policing. I'm responsible for a lot of things. Hold me accountable. But these M.T.A. issues – it's not like they don't have money. They are making decisions with their

Even though there are problems in the subway system, I think they pale in comparison to the problems on our roads. Avoid driving whenever humanly possible. For our subways – look, there's work that has to be done. But they're still a hell of a lot more reliable than driving on the streets. I like taking the subway. I have throughout my life, so I'll keep doing that. I haven't seen the details. I think the M.T.A. needs to recognize that they've got to do something quick here. Now I will do my disclaimer upfront: The M.T.A. is run by the State of New York and the

We're not allowing (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) agents in the building, because I think parents are so afraid right now, and are worried that an agent could literally come into a building and single out their child. We want them to know that can't happen under this

I think we were all sold a bill of goods in the past – for generations – that there was a serious effort to create equity in our school system. There wasn't. Anyone who doesn't understand it's transformative isn't looking very hard. We cannot change the basic reality of housing in New York City. I think the trend is clear among the Renewal Schools that we've had improved attendance and improved outcomes. And this is in the toughest situations in our whole school

If you say, Are there some that we haven't seen what we wanted from, absolutely. And have we said from the outset some of them are not going to make it?

Our job now is to get down to the bottom of what happened and do everything we can to make sure that no family ever suffers like this

Let's be blunt, the Charging Bull is a celebration of unfettered capitalism. You could say it is about the spirit of optimism, sure – that's what the artist was thinking, that's great. But it is a symbol of Wall Street. And Wall Street, to say the least, is a double-edge sword. We wouldn't move the Charging Bull statue if it offended someone. The Fearless Girl is staying

Men who don't like women taking up space are exactly why we need the Fearless

See, President Trump? It's not that hard. We won't bore you with the endless excuses our president has made. He'll just say this: No one forces any of us to run for public office, but those in public office must be transparent about our

New York City will close the Rikers Island jail facility. It will take many years. It will take many tough decisions. But it will happen. The goal is to get our overall jail population down to 5,000 people. We believe that can be achieved in the next 10 years. The mass incarceration era did not begin in New York City but it's going to end

What's pertinent is that he was the victim of a racist

There were news reports about this man that somehow dwelt on something that happened to him that happened to every single one of us in this room, which is, somewhere along the way, we made a mistake. So why, if he's a victim, an innocent victim of a racist attack, does any reporter want to talk about a mistake he made along the way. Why is that pertinent? Let me be

Now, she'll be asserting herself and affirming her strength even after her temporary permit expires – a fitting path for a girl who refuses to

Right after that, this miraculous girl appears and creates such a powerful sensation because she spoke to the moment. That sense that women were not going to live in fear, that women were going to teach their daughters and all the women in their lives to believe in themselves. Sometimes, a symbol helps us become whole, and I think the 'Fearless Girl' is having that same effect. She is inspiring everyone at a moment when we need

The stroke of a pen in Washington D.C. does not change the people of New York City or our values. It does not change how this city government protects its people and it will not change how we enforce the law in New York City or how we do business on behalf of the people all 8.5 million New
