New York City ‘s eviction moratorium has been extended through at least 4 September amid fears of thousands of innocent families being thrown onto the streets. On Thursday, Gov Andrew Cuomo extended the eviction ban by 30 days amid mass protests outside of the offices of many attorneys representing various landlords.
This week Cuomo vowed that he would continue to forcibly extend the moratorium until the pandemic is over, or, federal relief was actually substantial and on the way. The Governor has made it his personal mission to ensure (at least the way it seems) that innocent families will not be thrown onto the streets.
Exec orders were signed following days of protests to #CancelRent outside of the offices of the governor; mayor, and the attorneys who represent landlords. It is estimated that at bare minimum 14,000 families or more would be thrown onto the streets if evictions were permitted at this time.
