"The safety and security of New Yorkers is our number one priority, and we remain in close contact with local and federal officials", Cuomo said.

An improvised explosive device blew up at the Parsons Green station, injuring at least 20 people during Friday morning's rush hour.

"I think sometimes people don't want to see a lot of police", said NYPD Counterterrorism Chief James Waters, according to CBS2. There were no fatalities. This is just an ounce of protection.

Police in New York City are "closely monitoring" the alleged terror attack in London, according to Commissioner James O'Neill.

Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, says he's directed state law enforcement to increase transportation security at airports, bridges, tunnels and mass transit systems across New York.

However, he added, "always remain vigilant/aware of surroundings".

Nassau County police said they are are intensifying patrols as they monitor the situation in London, but stressed there are no known imminent threats to Nassau County.
