New York City has been hit with yet another terror attack after a bomb exploded at a well-trafficked bus station near Times Square this morning while thousands of people were heading to work.
The last terrorism attack to hit Manhattan was on Halloween when an individual rode a truck into crowd, killing 8 people and injuring 12 near the site of the One World Trade Center.
The major metropolis stood firm in the wake of that tragedy thanks to the tightly-knit community and its experience with devastating attacks that have faced it for decades, including 9/11, the worst attack to ever take place on American soil.
It appears that the city is banding together once again in the face of this latest strike from the Islamic State Terror Group, when an explosion shook the subway system just a block away from the popular tourist location of Times Square.
While details are still scarce, former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton has reported that the twenty-something man from South Asia who attempted a suicide bombing was "setting the device off in the name of ISIS" and confirms that it was "definitely a terrorist attack, definitely intended."
