NEW YORK, NY ( WKBW ) Security at "Ground Zero," the site of the former World Trade Center twin towers is described as tight.

Eyewitness News' John Borsa with videographer Chris Podosek, are the only Buffalo television crew at "Ground Zero" in lower Manhattan, the site of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

The mastermind behind those attacks and leader of Al Qaeda, Osama bin Laden, was killed in a special operations mission Sunday. His death prompted scores of people to go to the site where two planes crashed into the towers, bringing them down and killing close to 3,000 people.

As a result, security in the area has been raised. New York's Police Chief Ray Kelly talked with John Borsa about the precautions being taken in the area.

President Barack Obama is scheduled to visit the site on Thursday.
