NYC on High Alert

All hands were on deck Saturday in New York City as federal, state and local authorities ramped up security measures to prepare for the 10th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks. Federal officials said plans for the latest show of force dated back to May, when Osama bin Laden was killed—but the “credible” security threat received Thursday intensified the efforts. Meanwhile, life in the city went on, including scheduled events like the U.S. Open, a Mets game, and Fashion Week. A fire broke out on the roof of a Madison Avenue apartment building Saturday afternoon around 3:20 p.m., and officials said no one was injured—doing nothing to calm fears for the city on edge.
