Hochul’s Promised Plan For Homeless Outreach in the Subway Hasn’t Left the Station

More than a week before 40-year old Michelle Go was pushed in front a moving train at Times Square on Saturday, Gov. Kathy Hochul and Mayor Eric Adams announced a plan to bolster safety in the subways: More police officers patrolling platforms, and teams of mental health professionals to connect people experiencing homelessness, particularly those with mental illness, with resources. They spoke at a lectern emblazoned with the name of the new state-funded homeless outreach program: “SAFE OPTIONS SUPPORT TEAMS.”
