‘It’s not too late to complete the census’ – flash mob and census count in Times Square

The Association for a Better New York (ABNY) organized a socially-distanced flash mob at the foot of the TKTS red steps in New York’s Times Square on Wednesday (Sept. 23).

“New Yorkers still have seven days to complete the census form, it’s not too late,” said Melva Miller, chief executive officer of ABNY.

“It’s $7,000 per household for New York City,” said Julie Menin, director of NYC Census 2020. “We’ve got to make sure that we don’t leave any money on the table, not to mention billions of dollars for our great city.”

Census workers were also helping passersby complete their census form.

The census count’s accuracy is critical, as the survey determines how the U.S. House of Representatives and state legislatures draw voting districts during the next round of redistricting and guides the federal government in allocating $1.5 trillion a year in aid.
