I never found out exactly what was happening here, either, but there was a massive police presence, with trucks blocking off the street, armored police, machine guns, etc. There was muttering among the bystanders about a hostage situation but nothing that ever made the news or was explained. With typical blasé NY sang froid, people ignored the potential danger, gawked and took cellphone pictures and videos.
I’m not sure what was going on here, but every overpass we went under, on this day at the end of April, had a firetruck with firemen on it.
