Bloomberg spoke Sunday outside a restaurant in Times Square where he was to have dinner with a mounted police officer credited with evacuating the area surrounding the car.
Bloomberg notes the investigation is in its early stages. But he says: "So far, there is no evidence that any of this has anything to do with one of the recognized terrorist organizations."
Police found the car parked on one of the prime blocks for Broadway shows after being alerted by two street vendors. Thousands of tourists were cleared from the area for 10 hours.
