In a tweet Friday morning, Commissioner O'Neill said that while there is no direct threat to New York City, police would be "closely monitoring" the London incident.

Officials say a homemade bomb exploded on a packed London subway train during Friday morning's rush hour, leaving more than 20 people injured. "They don't want to see the long guns, and the helmets because it's, the world that has changed, and my message is yes, the world has changed since 2001, and this is the new world we live in, and this is the way we protect New York City".

Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, says he's directed state law enforcement to increase transportation security at airports, bridges, tunnels and mass transit systems across New York.

One man visiting from London said the extra police presence in Times Square is welcome.

But he says people should always be vigilant and aware of their surroundings.

Department spokesman J. Peter Donald said the NYPD was monitoring intelligence through a joint terrorism task force.
