A Message from the Editors

Today, a pipe bomb was detonated in the Port Authority subway station. Details on what has now been identified as a terrorist attack can be found in the coverage below.

At a time when many of us New Yorkers may feel particularly vulnerable, we must remember to support one another. No matter the politics this attack may produce, we must remain staunch advocates of the values that define our diverse and progressive city — tolerance, inclusivity, and justice.

Mayor de Blasio stated, “The choice of New York is always for a reason, because we are a beacon to the world. And we actually show that a society of many faiths and many backgrounds can work.”

Students, let’s continue to be that beacon.
