Residents, students and visitors of the Lower Manhattan neighborhood where terror struck on Tuesday carried on with their lives, though some are still shaken up.
On Thursday cyclists continued to ride their bicycles on the reopened bike lane, runners maintained their training for the upcoming New York City Marathon and the streets of Chambers and Greenwich were filled with students heading to their classes as the neighborhood is a learning hub for the Borough of Manhattan Community College, Stuyvesant High School, P.S. 234 Independence School, PS 150 Tribeca Learning Center, The Park Pre-School and P.S/I.S. 89, all with police officers patrolling the area.
In spite of the terrorist attack, life in New York though alerted, remained the same.
Sayfullo Saipov, a New Jersey truck driver who immigrated from Uzbekistan, allegedly committed the terrorist attack by ramming a Home Depot rental truck down a bike lane, killing eight people and injuring 12 others. The fallen victims include five Argentinians and a mother from Belgium, whose respective flags are planted in shrine across the community college in respect of the deceased.
