Governor Andrew Cuomo said his administration will now focus on reopening its economic engine, New York City, the only state region still on lockdown.

The economy will need government help to bounce back, Cuomo said, so the state plans to fast-track its plan to rebuild Penn Station while “ridership is low and while we need the jobs.” It will also accelerate LaGuardia Airport renovations, and wants to run power cable from Canada to New York City to develop the renewable market upstate and satisfy the need downstate.
