Iconic New York City Halloween parade marches on after attack

The annaul Village Halloween Parade is the nationa's largest public Halloween celebration- attended by over 2 million people.

In a press conference after the attack, Mayor Bill de Blasio promised to increase security along the parade route, and NYPD officers were certainly everywhere in evidence. And if you weren't at the parade or one of the first responders - or, it should go without saying, among the injured and dead and their families - last night, you could go about your usual business. "And you didn't affect us", Cuomo told CNN.

It's a handsome thing to see NY stand up to those who threaten our city and show that nothing will stop us from doing us. "We're living our lives because we're not going to allow the terrorists to win, period".

The parade, which took place just blocks from the attack site, drew thousands of costumed marchers. This act of terrorism, on vaguely the same scale as the first Trade Center attack - although 1993 caused far more injuries owing to smoke, there were six deaths then -seems, barely a day later, nearly to have slipped past a lot of people.
