New York City to install 1,500 metal barriers after deadly pedestrian attack

New York City will install hundreds of permanent bollards and other protective devices in high-profile locations around the five boroughs to prevent vehicle terrorist attacks on pedestrians like the October 31, 2017 attack that killed eight on a lower Manhattan bike path, writes Deepti Hajela for Time.

The only locations specifically named as getting barriers were Times Square and the bike path where the attack occurred last year.

Barricades will be installed beginning in March 2018.
