NEW YORK (WABC / WKBW ) Once again, New Yorkers dealt with an ominous-sounding report of a possible threat against the city by taking it in stride.

Channel 7's John Borsa and videojournalist Chris Podosek are in New York City reporting exclusively for Channel 7's Eyewitness News and Granite Broadcasting.

Borsa reports that security is tight around the perimeter of "Ground Zero."

Checkpoints around Manhattan made for a tough day, but one would hope a safer day as police checked countless vehicles even into the night.

Pulled over at random, trucks of all sizes are being searched and even drivers in their cars are having their licenses checked.

Watch for John Borsa's reports, including an exclusive interview with an Amherst native living in Battery Park who lived through the 9/11 attacks....Sunday on Channel 7's Eyewitness News HD at 6 & 11p.m.
