Pope Francis Visit: NYC Ready for 80K People in Central Park, Mayor Says

(DNAINFO)  Jeff Mays — More than 80,000 people are expected to be in Central Park Friday for Pope Francis’ procession, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Monday.

The city will be prepared to handle the high-profile visit which Police Commissioner William Bratton last week called the city’s “largest security challenge” ever because it coincides with the United Nations General Assembly.

De Blasio said the city, led by the security efforts of the Secret Service, will be ready and that New Yorkers will benefit form the visit.
