New York Trip

Kristen and I went to New York for a quick trip over the weekend. We did all of our moving about by foot, subway, and bus. Since the security threat was elevated for mass transit systems after the London bombing, I thought we might notice something different on NY's subways and buses, but that was not the case.

The only new measures I noticed were a few extra police in major subway stations and a recording on the subway advising people not to mess with unattended bags. I did see a canine unit and a police officer with a shotgun over his soldier yesterday at LaGuardia. That could have been a response to a specific situation or a new defensive measure.

NY seemed pretty much business as usual to me.
