New York City Mayor Eric Adams is pushing for the Democratic National Convention (DNC) to be held in the Big Apple in 2024. In a passionate speech delivered at a news conference , Adams highlighted why he believes New York City is the perfect location for the event.
Adams began by emphasizing the city’s status as a global symbol of opportunity and hope. He pointed to the Statue of Liberty, which stands in New York Harbor and represents the idea of America as a place where dreams can come true. According to Adams, New York City embodies the American Dream in a way that no other city can.
“When you bring the convention here, you are going to send a message across America and across the globe,” Adams said. “We have the dream here. That’s our product. The product of New York City is that we say you bring your culture, you bring your lifestyle, you bring your vision, and you add it to the American dream. And that’s the combination that makes us great.”
Adams went on to list a number of reasons why New York City is the ideal location for the DNC. He noted that the city is the most vibrant and exciting in America, as well as the safest big city in the country. He highlighted the city’s diversity, best hotels, biggest convention centers, and strong support for unions. Adams also pointed out that New York City is the birthplace of women’s rights and LGBTQ+ pride.
Adams emphasized that holding the DNC in New York City would send a powerful message about the strength and resilience of both the city and the country as a whole. He noted that New York City has weathered numerous challenges over the years, including the 9/11 attacks and the COVID-19 pandemic, and has always emerged stronger.
“There’s something special about the city and the DNC holding this convention here would send a message that there’s something special about America,” Adams said. “Clearly we can hold the top event right here in this city.”
Adams ended his speech by calling on his colleagues in the city, Albany, and Congress to support his bid to bring the DNC to New York City. He urged them to recognize the importance of showcasing the city’s unique character and strengths on the world stage.
“I’m excited about the convention coming here to New York City,” Adams said. “This is our opportunity on the biggest stage on the globe to highlight those things that are important as we move forward in the years to come. Let’s bring the DNC to the biggest stage in America. And that place is called New York City. Bring it home.”
