NEW YORK (AP) — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the One World Trade Center spire will be lit blue, white and red in honor of dozens killed in the Paris attacks.
Cuomo says the 408-foot spire will be illuminated Friday night and in the days to come. The governor says the act shows New York will stand with the people of France.
New York City officers have been deployed to various parts of the city, including French government buildings. Heavily-armed officers stood outside of the French Consulate in Manhattan as passers-by brought flowers.
Police have stressed there is “no indication that the attack has any nexus to New York City.”
French officials say several dozen people have been killed in shootings and explosions at a theater, restaurant and elsewhere in Paris.
