New York City residents are already living the “clean” life with their favorite home decor items and furnishings in tow.
Now they’re heading back to their homes in the South Bronx to enjoy a fresh air and fresh airy feel, the mayor says.
“We’ve all come to a point where we have so much stuff in our homes that we don’t even want to go out and do laundry,” Mayor Bill de Blasio told reporters Thursday.
“The new houses are just so much nicer and cleaner than what we had before.”
De Blasio said he’s happy that people are taking advantage of his cleanliness program, but he said there are still “a lot of people that have been very frustrated with our efforts.”
“They’re not having the same level of satisfaction,” he said.
The mayor said he will announce more details in the coming weeks.
The program will be expanded throughout the year.
The New York Public Library says it’s working with the mayor on an inventory of the “old and dusty” and is helping people find clean homes for rent.
“This is an effort that will continue in the future, with the goal of reaching a significant number of new homes, especially for low-income households, where there are more resources available than in previous years,” library spokesperson Toni Fierro said in a statement.
