New York City is saturated with heightened security after the explosion in Chelsea last night as many additional police officers and National Guardsmen are on patrol, and commuters are likely looking at a tough Monday morning commute with the United Nations General Assembly meeting getting underway on top of the continuing investigation into the Chelsea bombing, CBS NY report.
During a press conference on Sunday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo talked about some of the post-explosion security enhancements for the city. “We will be deploying an added 1,000 New York State Police and National Guard people to police the bus terminals, airports and subway stations,” Cuomo said.
This was already going to be a challenging week for commuters as world leaders, including President Barack Obama, will be in the city for the U.N. General Assembly, CBS reports.
