Gov. Andrew Cuomo on NYC attack: 'We go forward stronger than ever'

Gov. Andrew Cuomo on NYC attack: 'We go forward stronger than ever'”

Police said they added extra officers, heavy weapons teams and sand trucks as protective blockers along the parade route.

The Village Halloween Parade runs from Sixth Avenue and Spring Street to 16th Street. If anything, they said they felt safe knowing security was stepped up. The inevitable next attack has lingered in the back of every New Yorker's head since 2001, since 1993, even since 1948, when E.B. White, in Here Is New York, wrote movingly about the city's newfound vulnerability.

Just after 3 p.m., six people were killed after a truck plowed into several people on a bike path on the West Side Highway about a mile from the start of the parade route.

"If you change your life then the bad guys win", one of them said.

Still, the mayor urged New Yorkers to be vigilant: "Tell an officer immediately if you see anything unusual, anything that worries you".

"Today, tomorrow and forever, we will remember the lives of those taken from us too soon, and we keep in our thoughts their loved ones who are feeling unimaginable pain", Governor Cuomo said. The New York City Marathon, this weekend, will go on as well. De Blasio and Governor Andrew Cuomo made an appearance in the parade as well, marching a few blocks up near 14th Street.

Authorities in NY have started questioning the suspect, Sayfullo Saipov, a 29-year-old Uzbek immigrant who came to the United States in 2010. Sure, there was a greater police presence than usual.

At least 8 people dead and more than a dozen others injured, but Halloween rages on.

It didn't take long for social media to light up with #NYCStrong tributes pledging to not let fear win the day.
