I'm sure you've got a long-range camera and you can go into one of the rooms and find out. "We have plenty of back-ups. We're going to get a fantastic 80 minutes from that position".

Sunday's threat coincided with the Jewish holiday of Purim, a festive commemoration of the defeat of a plot to exterminate Jews in ancient Persia. "Like all New Yorkers, I am profoundly disturbed and disgusted by the continued threats against the Jewish community in NY".

This is just one of many recent threats to the Jewish community worldwide.

The centre was evacuated for two hours, but police said they determined there was no threat and the building was reopened that evening. As New Yorkers, we will not stand by silently as some seek to sow hate and division.

New Yorkers can also call the NYPD Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
