NEW YORK (AP) — After three months of a coronavirus crisis followed by protests and unrest, New York City is trying to turn a page when a limited range of industries reopen Monday. It’s an inflection point as the city tries to get back to business. Its first steps at recovery come as the virus continues to circulate and amid demonstrations over George Floyd’s death, racism and police brutality. Construction, manufacturing, wholesalers and previously “non-essential” retailers can resume work Monday, with restrictions. Shops can reopen for delivery and pickup, though they can’t yet have customers browsing inside.
A lot has been happening this week, to say the least. And we’re getting ready for a very big moment tomorrow as Phase One of the Re-Start begins. So I want to make life a little easier for all of us: Alternate Side Parking is cancelled tomorrow Mon June 8 thru Sun June 21.

NYC enters Phase 1 of reopening tomorrow.
New Yorkers bent the curve by being smart.
Let’s keep being smart. #NYTough
