Mayor Bill de Blasio made a supportive visit to the Park East Synagogue a few hours after the Tree of Life synagogue massacre in Pittsburgh. Joining Rabbi Arthur Schneier for remarks in front of the synagogue, de Blasio offered both emotional support and promises of strong police protection. Mayor de Blasio and Rabbi Schneier were joined by Rep. Carolyn Maloney, NYS Senator Liz Kruger, Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer and NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan. Mayor de Blasio did not take press questions.
