“I think you have just started as a country. The discovery of oil, the technology, the growth, the evolution. I want the ambassador and the council general to know that there’s a real partnership in home here in New York,” he added.

“That is one of the prerequisites of being American. You do not abandon who you are. You don’t call yourself American Guyanese, African-American, American Chinese, American Irish. No, America said, put your culture first, hold on to it and have it as a common denominator that we all can appreciate.,” Mayor Adams said.

“Because of that, we’re able to continue to have people come from all over the globe and say they want to make this their home. I say to those who are waiting on the line to touch the ball. I say to those who are visiting this city. There’s two types of Americans, those who live in New York and those who wish they could. We’re the lucky ones,” he added.
