De Blasio reacts to Trump’s claim that NYC is a ‘ghost town’

Mayor de Blasio fought back against President Trump’s assertion that the Big Apple is a deserted “ghost town” — tweeting out two photos of outdoor diners socializing on city streets.

“Doesn’t look like a ghost town to me,” the mayor posted as Trump and Biden duked it out in the first presidential debate.

In one of two photos posted by de Blasio, an outdoor band plays for patrons who have been limited to outdoor seating over coronavirus restrictions.

Trump during the debate speculated the city may never recover from the economic fallout caused by the pandemic.

“It’s so sad what’s happening in New York,” Trump said. “It’s almost like a ghost town. I’m not sure it can ever recover. People want their places open.”

On Friday, city restaurants can reopen for indoor dining at 25 percent capacity with coronavirus-related restrictions.
