A poll shows many New Yorkers are concerned about another terrorist attack in the near future, though most haven't changed their lifestyles as a consequence.

The Siena poll released Monday shows most have been following the recent terrorist attacks around the world, 60 percent say they're very concerned, while 63 percent say they're not changing their activities at all by avoiding traveling or public places. Another 20 percent say they have.

A majority of those surveyed, 52 percent, oppose allowing refugees from war-torn Syria into the U.S. now, while 39 percent support letting them come.

The poll of 822 registered voters was conducted from last Tuesday through Saturday. It has a margin of error of four percentage points.
