New York City beefs up security on 9/11 anniversary

New York Governor Kathy Hochul said in a news conference outside of the New York City Police Department headquarters, "You will see an increased presence. We've deployed more resources for the Port Authority, the MTA. You'll see more people. You'll see individuals with long arms. You'll see them looking a little bit militarized. But the idea is to let anyone know that if you mess with New York, there'll be consequences."

Armed police officers patrolled the grounds of the 9/11 Memorial & Museum, along with bomb-sniffing dogs.
