Following two terror attacks in London, security is being stepped up at all local airports, bridges, tunnels and mass transit, Governor Andrew Cuomo said.

Governor Cuomo said in part,
"The safety and security of New Yorkers is our top priority, and we will continue to remain vigilant. We are in close contact with federal and local officials, and I have directed state law enforcement officials to step up security and patrols at high-profile locations across New York, including our airports, bridges, tunnels and mass transit systems."

The NYPD reports that while there are no credible threats to New York City, Critical Response Command is deployed at highly-traveled pedestrian locations.


Counterterrorism patrols could be seen in Times Square overnight.

Mayor Bill de Blasio took to Twitter to express the city's support for London.
