Reporter Challenges NYC Mayor on "Tale of Two Cities"

This morning during his daily coronavirus briefing, Mayor de Blasio's  received a question from the Hamodia regarding the alleged double standard and special treatment the Mayor has placed on the Jewish community in Williamsburg and Boro Park.

A large funeral in Williamsburg drew national attention after the mayor singled out the Jewish community in a tweet last week. The following day it was reported that the police were giving out summons to those seen walking in public without a mask. This all, while scenes of crowded parks around the city were seen all over the internet, without any police harassment.  Furthermore, instead of fining those without face coverings, the police were seen distributing mask to those who didn't have.
