New York City mayor: ‘Kansas doesn’t have a brand’
WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - A briefing meant to show off the good in New York City may have cast a not-so-good light on the Midwest.
NYC Mayor Eric Adams briefed the media on Tuesday about his recent trips to Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. He said in both locations, he said the people welcomed him because they recognized New York City and its “brand,” something he said a place like Kansas lacks.
“We have a brand. And when people see it, it means something,” said Mayor Adams. “You know when we go there...Kansas doesn’t have a brand. When you go there, okay, you’re from Kansas. But New York has a brand, and that brand means diversity,” the mayor continued.
Adams said New York is considered an international city and America’s city. He said what happens in New York City impacts the globe, and how people are going to perceive us (America) across the globe.
