New York City's top cop said busy Fifth Avenue outside Trump Tower in midtown Manhattan will stay open for now.
Police Commissioner Jim O'Neill said Wednesday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" that should things change, resilient New Yorkers will find an alternative path.
He described pedestrian foot traffic on the sidewalks outside President-Elect Donald Trump's namesake skyscraper as heavy but moving.
He also called 57th Street near the building where Trump lives and headquarters his businesses as perhaps the slowest cross-town street in Manhattan.
That's because officials have barricaded that block where tower residents enter and have set up checkpoints manned by officers in guard booths.
O'Neill also told host Joe Scarborough the department has received no specific or credible terror threats ahead of the Thanksgiving Day Parade.
