Doesn't surprise me. It's probably more of an officer presence thing than anything else. Other than maybe a concern about a copy cat, it's probably more to provide some sense of security to the general public. No doubt there have probably been some jackasses that have called up making threats of another such attack. I'd be surprised if they keep it up indefinitely though. I'm sure NYPD has some personnel to spare at least for the time being. I mean the NYPD is roughly the size of the entire active duty US Coast Guard. In fact I think NYPD is actually larger.
