In his sixth annual State of the City speech, Mayor Bill de Blasio on Thursday morning exclaimed that the city would seize the buildings of the "worst landlords".
"If you've spent your lifetime working, you've already paid your dues", de Blasio said in his State of the City address.

Mayor Bill de Blasio said he will pursue local legislation that would require private employers with five or more employees to offer 10 annual days of paid personal time, allowing employees to take paid time off for any goal. As the New YorkPost reported, the bill was introduced by Council Member Ben Kallos, who represents parts of Manhattan, but also now chairs the Council's Land Use Subcommittee on Planning Dispositions and Concessions, which has oversight over the sale or lease of city-owned land to developers.
Under NYC Care, as the city's program is being called, uninsured New Yorkers will be able to call a central phone number to get an insurance card and be assigned a doctor, giving them access to primary care and an array of specialty services, the mayor said according to the Post.
Traffic fatalities also dropped to a record low in 2018, with the lowest deaths reported since 1910, the mayor said, and NY permanently housed more than 2,000 homeless residents.
Although the mayor is calling for legislation to be passed soon, he says the plan would be phased in over time. "Well-connected developers should not be getting sweetheart deals on the taxpayers' dime".
