New York City residents could start seeing federal stimulus payments of up to $1,200 as soon as Thursday, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Monday. The mayor also said the city has set up 450 "grab and go" locations for families to obtain breakfast, lunch and dinner as the city struggles under a restrictive stay-at-home order that has forced many residents out of work. The city also has banned evictions to help people struggling to make rent, de Blasio said.
"Some some of (the payments) will be soon," de Blasio said. "But others are going to take a long time. … If it takes too long, it doesn't help enough."
