The Mayor is speaking! The Police Commissioner there! The FBI just shared some "specific" threat information about a threat to the NYC subways. The Mayor is trying to reassure commuters that the NYPD has done a lot (shout out to the Hercules team and subway bag checkers). He also says that a media outlet got the tip two days ago and held it. Also, shout out to "See Something, Say Something." A cynical theory: The Mayor is using this to draw attention away from tonight's debate! A paranoid idea: We're walking home, even though the Mayor is taking the subway tonight and tomorrow morning.

WNBC has the most details so far. Baby carriages to carry explosives, eh? And here's the NY Times on it. We'll be asking you about your commutes home and to work tomorrow!
