Salute to Small Business Reception

December 8, 2021

"For so many of the small businesses, you define neighborhoods, you define the character of the city, you define the life of the city, you define the spirit of the city, and so when we lose a small business, we lose part of our humanity and our hearts and souls," Mayor Bill de Blasio expressed in his remarks at a reception at Gracie Mansion that honored New York's small businesses.   The NYC Department of Small Business Services Commissioner, Jonnel Doris, and Deputy Mayor J. Phillip Thompson also spoke.
