Times Square Returns to Normal

Sunday, May 2nd, 2010

Mayor Bloomberg dined in Times Square with the men credited with averting disaster there. The men are Viet Nam veterans, work as street vendors and apparently are very observant. They altered authorities when they noticed something very unusual about an idling Nissan Pathfinder. The bomb squad responded to the alert and disabled the explosives, as police evacuated the area. The Mayor’s decision to dine in the neighborhood signals a return to normalcy that the threat has been averted. This weekend was certainly a reminder that urban life in the U.S. is no longer as secure as it used to be and underscores the importance of ongoing vigilance.
