Commuters will see a beefed up police and National Guard presence Wednesday at major transit, rail hubs as part of a large security exercise involving cops from the New York City Police Department, Amtrak and MTA, city officials said.
Starting at about 7 a.m. Wednesday, the increased police presence will be noticeable at Penn Station, Grand Central Terminal and Herald Square, said the spokesman. The exercise will end about 10 a.m.
The increase in cops on transit posts, while part of a regularly scheduled training exercise, comes just two days after suicide bombers killed dozens in the Moscow subway system.
"We keep training, we keep working very hard to improve the security, but we can only do so much," Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Tuesday.
