  • He came to a stop by crashing into a school bus after plowing through others on the bike path. There were several children inside the bus and some are feared to have been injured but none are in a critical condition

Cuomo calls the driver a "depraved coward", and says the attack "did not instill terror" among hardy New Yorkers.

The FBI and NYPD are now treating the incident as an act of terror. Sand trucks will be rolled out along the route before the 7 p.m. kickoff time for the parade.

The parade stepped off Tuesday evening about a mile (1.6 kilometers) from where a truck mowed down pedestrians and cyclists on a busy bike path hours earlier.

The parade route began in Manhattan's West Village, just a few blocks northeast of where the truck hit a school bus as it plowed down the riverside bike path.

'We will be vigilant. And we're living our lives, because we're not going to let the terrorists win. More police everywhere- you'll see them in the airports, you'll see them in the tunnels, ' Cuomo said.

It's a lovely thing to see NY stand up to those who threaten our city and show that nothing will stop us from doing us. This is a tragedy of the greatest magnitude'. It speaks well of New Yorkers that we did not cancel the Village Halloween Parade, an event that (in the past, anyway, when it was more outré and less domesticated) constituted a thumb in the eye of the fundamentalism and fear that inspire attacks like yesterday's.

President Trump acknowledged the attack on Twitter, describing the perpetrator as a "sick" individual. Law enforcement is following this closely.

First Lady Melania Trump, who was in Manhattan when the attack occurred, said: 'My heart breaks for NYC today.
