New York City Mayor Eric Adams used the Steinway & Sons factory in Astoria, Queens, as the backdrop for a press conference urging businesses to bring workers back and parents to send their kids to school. 

The mayor, who spoke on a podium in the middle of the piano factory as employees worked, continued his bid to will the city back to regular activity despite a daily average of more than 25,000 Covid-19 cases due to the surging omicron variant.
